Listen: Petula Clark’s “Cut Copy Me”

Petula Clark

The other morning I woke up and saw a tweet from @17Days about a hot new track from English singer Petula Clark called “Cut Copy Me.” (iTunes) I immediately thought of “Downtown,” the song she’s probably most famous for from 1964. I had no clue she was still making music but once I heard the new track I was totally mesmerized. The song is insanely good, and if you can believe, Petula is eighty-years-old now and still sounds great! Next month she’s releasing an album called Lost In You over in the UK, which includes this gorgeous track, a revised version of “Downtown,” plus a number of covers including Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy.” This woman has been in the business for seventy-years, her staying power simply blows my mind. I wish she would come over here to play a show, I would kill to see her perform live. Don’t miss out on the haunting track below, it’s been on constant replay for me.
