Song of the Day: Cliff Richard, “Devil Woman”

British singer, songwriter, actor and philanthropist Cliff Richard celebrates birthday number 81 today. He is the UK’s third best-selling musician of all time (after The Beatles and Elvis Presley), but didn’t catch on as well in the US. "Devil Woman" was his 1976 single that reached #6 in the US, #4 in Canada, #9 in the UK, and #3 in Australia.

  2. Richard first caught my attention with “We Don’t Talk Anymore”. I bought a few of his albums during the eighties. He did some good music. Recently I’ve seen some older clips of his earlier stuff.

  3. John,

    I couldn’t connect Cliff Richards’ name with the song and even after listening to it, I thought for sure it was another version I remembered but after doing a little digging around I came to accept that my memory failed me and it was Cliff’s song I grew up listening to. I wonder why he didn’t catch on in the US? He did so well across the pond. I guess there was just too many good American bands in the 70s keeping Richards’ success here pushed back. Did you know his version is a cover? A gal by the name of Kristine Sparkle released the first recording and it’s not bad. Nice birthday tribute to a great recording artist. Happy Birthday, Cliff Richards!
