You Know, I'm Really Beginning to Get Annoyed With This Early Clue to the New Direction Crap!!!

From 1966, please enjoy the late great Mrs. (Elva) Miller and her epochal cover of Petula Clark's ode to slum clearance, "Downtown." From her equally epochal debut album, immodestly titled Mrs. Miller's Greatest Hits .



As always, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded the first sick bastard alert reader who gleans the clip's relevance to tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.

I ain't touchin' this one.

Say, speaking of touching, she really has a grip on that microphone, doesn't she?

songs about various locations (main street , uptown , etc etc

Songs rendered redundant by GPS functionality?

I hadn't really thought about the microphone, but now that you mention it....

Use of Honorifics-- Dr., Mr., Mrs., etc.-- in a song title or band name?.

Most of this album is crap. I only like her early stuff.

[scratching head] I'm still trying to figure out how Mae West changed your life.

Uh...Singers with Susan Boyle, err, charm?

Songs with whistling in them?

I own this record! Mrs. Miller was the William Hung of the 60s!

PS: The word verifications have been much more entertaining lately. They must have hired the guy who does the Times Crossword.

Okay, let me help.

It's not the song, or cover versions in general.

Libby Spencer said...

Hmmm. Songs with town in the title is too obvious.

I don't think there's enough of them for it to be songs sung by people named Miller.

I'm guessing best Greatest Hits albums.

Self-produced records?

Badly sung covers by women with enormous shapeless hooters?

steve simels said...

It's a heck of a graphic, isn't it?
