Three classics from female singers today. First we have a song which gives us hours of fun! Well, at least five minutes of fun as we learn that there isn't any name that we can't rhyme, according to Shirley Ellis. Given the trouble I have spelling in song, you can imagine how many days it took me to learn how to play The Name Game...
I love Carole King, I do. So does my mum. So does my brother. So does kippers. In fact I'm not sure I know anyone who hasn't openly declared their love for her. I even forgive her for being half responsible for the distinctly dubious He Hit Me And It Felt Like A Kiss since the following song was a hit in the same year.
I believe my words upon hearing I Can't Stay Mad At You for the first time were, "Why don't all songs sound like this?" Still a perfectly valid question, I feel. (And it was written by Carole King - huzzah!) If you get a spare moment, have a read up about Skeeter - her story is pretty amazing. Particularly the part where her best friend's mother pumped her full of drugs and told her she was responsible for the death of said friend in a car crash.
