Hope you enjoy. Tell Me What He Said
I never heard of her. Great sound. I love the music from that era even though it was a few years behind me. I listen to the oldies all the time. They are timeless. I was in the car with my daughter and her friends when she was in her mid teens and Chapel of Love came on and they all knew the words and sang along!
I’ve never heard that one. What a difference between 1962 and 1972!

Before she was sixteen years old, Shapiro had been voted Britain’s “Top Female Singer”. The Beatles first national tour of Britain, in the late winter/early spring of 1963, was as one of her supporting acts. During the course of the tour, the Beatles had their first hit single and John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote the song “Misery” for her, but Shapiro did not record the composition. In 1995, during a This is Your Life highlighting her life and career, Shapiro revealed, “It was actually turned down on my behalf before I ever heard it, actually. I never got to hear it or give an opinion. It’s a shame, really.” Shapiro lip-synched her then-current single, “Look Who It Is”, on the British television programme Ready Steady Go! with three of the Beatles (John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison).
Helen Shapiro - It might as well rain until September
It's amazing that there are teenagers today who would know that song--which was not a hit, despite the group's name.

& here it is!
At least they were, once, fun-lovin lads...
