Song of the Day
The Lana Sisters - Ring My Phone
The first band of Dusty Springfield, while she was still Mary O’Brien.
Fact: despite the approx 238476 million sister bands out there, the Lana Sisters were not sisters. Mind-blowing. Also a bit dishonest if you ask me.
These “brother/sister” bands were often more like a marketing strategy (for example, The Walker Brothers weren’t related either)

Dusty Springfield Hates Men?
Haha, cute title on that article, so 60’s. All because she didn’t tolerate shit from guys.
Dusty Springfield, wearing one wig on top of another wig and surrounded by giant photos of herself (on wheels! being pushed by safety gays!), manages one of the best performances of “The Look of Love” that I’ve ever heard. (Don’t ask me what’s going on in the last few seconds of the clip, because I have no idea. It certainly adds to the kooky atmosphere, whatever it is.)
