Julie London

Here is a famous score by the legendary actress and singer Julie London.
Julie London (1926 - 2000) was an American singer and actress. Best known for her smoky, sensual voice, as a singer she was at her peak in the 1950's; her acting career lasted more than 35 years, ending with the role of nurse Dixie McCall on the TV show Emergency! (1972-1979).
She was born in Santa Rosa, California, as Gayle Peck. She was a pinup girl prized by GIs during World War II. Julie London began singing in public in her teens before appearing in a film. She was discovered by Sue Carol (wife of Alan Ladd) while London was working as an elevator operator. Her early film career did not include any singing parts. She recorded 32 albums in a career that began in 1955 with a live performance at the 881 Club in Los Angeles. She was named one of Billboard's most popular female vocalists for 1955, 1956 and 1957. In 1957, she was the subject of a Life magazine cover article in which she was quoted as saying: "It's only a thimbleful of a voice, and I have to use it close to the microphone. But it is a kind of oversmoked voice, and it automatically sounds intimate." One of her most famous singles "Cry Me a River", which has gained recent attention after being featured in the movie "V for Vendetta", was actually written by her high school classmate Arthur Hamilton, and produced by her husband Bobby Troup; other hit singles include "No Moon at All"; "My Heart Belongs to Daddy"; and "Two Sleepy People". Songs such as "Go Slow" epitomized her career style: her voice is slow, smoky, and sensual. The lyrics strongly suggest sex but never explicitly define it.
Enjoy Julie's style and ask for "more"!


Several other great numbers by the divine Julie!

Gotta move

Soon it’s gonna rain / Here’s that rainy day

Lonesome road

Nice girl
