(Non-DSB) This message arrived from Sandra, about Yvonne Fair (above) and her intense, soulful song from 1975:
“It Should Have Been Me”
“Dear Peggy and everyone at the Blog and DSB Camp – Happy 2008 !I was watching the Vicar of Dibley over the weekend and heard a great song called It should have been me. I found out that a singer called Yvonne Fair had sung it, although I think it was orginally a Motown song. I also found out sadly that she died at the young age of 51 (not sure of the reason).I know it is not DSB, but I can imagine the Dame singing it, because of her life experiences in that it could have been her !
Would you mind posting it and asking fans whether they could see the great Dame belting out this, I for sure can ? How lucky we are that our Dame is in good health.
Happy New Year
Thanks Sandra, it’s out for the fans to vote!
I think the song and raucous style is more Tina than Shirley, but that’s open to the opinion of all fans.
Comments welcome – What do you think?
