Shes My Girl Hes My Boy CD  

Songwriters have been using boys and girls names in songs since the dawn of pop music. Harry Dacre wrote 'Daisy Bell (Bicycle Built For Two)' in 1892, Ella Shields sang 'Burlington Bertie From Bow' in 1915 and 'Sweet Georgia Brown' and Dinah both came along in 1925. Cab Calloway introduced us to 'Minnie The Moocher' in 1931 and in the forties 'Lili Marlene' was a song popular with soldiers on both sides of World War 2. Rock'n'roll made the practice even more popular...There was a song for every Johnny and Bobby just as there was for every Sue, Donna or Peggy Sue. Compiled by pop guru Austin Powell, the man behind Fantastic Voyage's bestselling Forgotten 45s sets and the definitive American Music Library series, the 2CD set She's My Girl! He's My Boy! rounds up songs by many of rock'n'roll's big names, all proclaiming their love for a particular girl, and conversely many a song by some of the era's top girl singers longing for, or losing a Jimmy, Johnny or Ronnie; sixty in all. Eddie Cochran, The Crickets, Fats Domino and Paul Anka are on CD1 'The Boys Sing About The Girls', while Connie Francis, Petula Clark, Alma Cogan and The Shirelles are all on CD2 'The Girls Sing About The Boys'. Some songs you'll already know, others will hopefully be pleasant discoveries. All told they're a fascinating insight into the pop music of the rock'n'roll era and how its stars and forgotten heroes addressed their beloved objects of affection. A 20pp booklet, lavishly illustrated with original US and UK label shots, rounds off a terrific package. Disc: 1 1. Angela Jones (Johnny Ferguson) - Johnny Ferguson 2.
