Today's piece of Lost Jewelry from the Vaults at Oldiez 93 for Wednesday, June 29th, 2016 comes from Cilla Black!
On July 25th, 1964, "You're My World" entered Billboard's Top 40 and struggled on its way up to #26, spending four weeks in the chart.
Cilla Black, born Priscilla White on May 27th, 1943 in Liverpool, England was a pop singer who had been a friend of The Beatles and was managed by Brian Epstein. She hosted her own TV variety series for the BBC between 1968 and 1976.
Unfortunately for Cilla, "You're My World" turned out to be her one and only Top 40 hit, thus relegating her to the status of a One-Hit-Wonder. She did far better in her native UK, placing nineteen songs in the Top 40, including two #1s.
Cilla fell at her vacation home in Estepona, Spain on August 1st, 2015 and shortly thereafter suffered a stroke and passed away. She was 72.
