Song of the Day – “Alfie” – Cilla Black

Another performer lost just last week. Cilla Black was known more as a host or presenter on British television, with many credits over the years. Over here in the States, however, we remember her most for her rendition of this Bacharach/David tune.

It seems like an unremarkable rendition through the first two lines, but when she kicks in with the second time she says “What’s it all about”, it’s astounding.

Let’s hold off on any more deaths of musicians for a while, OK?
