(1) To Sir With Love Lulu Pop Song/Pop Movie

Many 60s songs and movies have similar titles and the tunes still keep echoing in our minds, like a turntable gone crazy. We whistle them, hum them or just sing them.
These songs include, "To Sir With Love" by Lulu (image), "Born Free" by Mat Monroe, "Love Story" by Andy Williams, "Blue Hawaii" by Elvis Presley and "The Young Ones" by Cliff Richard. The list is endless.

The movies and songs have one special formula; the plots, like the lyrics are easy to remember and the tunes simple and they carry themes close to the heart. "Those schoolgirl days, Of telling tales and biting nails are gone/But in my mind, I know they will still live on and on..." Most of these songs would have either been recorded by our local bands or sung on stage during social gatherings.

What's your favourite pop movie/pop song combination? Mine is Lulu's, "To Sir..."
