It's a sweet story about a > girl who gets her heart broken, and her Mother telling her > daughter "Some someday you'll see him again my child"....which > is exactly what happened in my case. My website tells it all!! Darling Claire, Phew, just back from the airport with enough time to upload "Some Someday" by Mikki Young to musica before my next psychotherapy session. They're compulsory. Gawd, anyone would think I was unbalanced, or something. The link: Claire, didn't I bump into you at the Purple Pussycat, down in the Village, during one of my New York jaunts in 1964? You were trying to teach Tiny Tim how to do The Slop, I recall. Julio on cat-spanking: > Some months ago I couldn't get out of my head her beautiful > "Faut-it que je t'aime" (Vidalin-Datin), I used to hum it to > my cat, while I was spanking him. He loved it. These last days > I spank him to the rhythm of Marcie Blane "The Hurtin' Kind". Just as we all suspected, a euphemism. Chao, AvT xxx -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

If so, was it as elaborate and catchy as Here It Comes, or just another throwaway B-side in the typical Spector fashion? Do tell. :-) with regards Martin, Denmark -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Any other enthusiasts here? I doubt you'll find many other enthusiasts. She was one of the zillion singers that suddenly popped up during the big "yy" period. As far as I remember she never had a real bona fide hit but was not totally unknown either. Frank -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

The Sexologie comp is out of print, but there's one called Dingo that might yet be available. I got it on both CD and LP from Dusty Groove America which is typically a good source for at least reissued French material here. But there's also a nice Jazzman reissue 45 out as well. Again, try DGA, if not Jazzman itself. There's also a cover on a Japanese comp called Cuties. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

But I might never have even listened to it (I have little boxes of French 45s/EPs that I haven't necessarily listened to). But at least I know roughly where this one is . -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
