To me, one of the most wonderful pop stars ever is celebrating her 70th birthday. I’ve been a fan since I first heard Sam in around the summer of 1977 with her beautiful looks and sensual voice I was unable to prevent myself from having her picture on my bedroom wall (oddly next to the Boomtown Rats). I sat through Grease twice in the cinema and when I was invited to a private premier showing of Xanadu in 1980 I actually sat two rows behind her. For those who have ever seen the film, you’ll know it doesn’t have any plot but the music is fantastic throughout. Fortunately I didn’t see much of the film as I spent the entire time looking at the back of her head.
Anyway, the Cambridge-born, Melbourne-raised singer has had more than her share of life’s tragedies with various health problems and husband issues, but her determination is outstanding much like her music.
It was impossible to pick a favourite clip this week, but this is one of my favourite songs and how she looks in this video is…..well, stunning. Enough from me, see for yourself, I know you’ll agree!!!!!
