Lulu - Discography 320kbps Bitrate

Lulu Discography


In the United States, Lulu is thought of as a one-hit wonder, having scored a memorable number one hit in 1967 with the bittersweet and evocative "To Sir, With Love" without ever duplicating that feat (though she did land three other singles in the Top 40). But in the United Kingdom, Lulu had already scored a handful of hits when "To Sir, With Love" was released as the B-side to "Let's Pretend," and at home she would become an enduring star in pop music, on television, on the stage, and in the movies, thanks to her strong, versatile voice and sunny personality.

Lulu was born Marie McDonald McLaughlin Lawrie on November 3, 1948 in Glasgow, Scotland. The oldest of four siblings, Marie developed an enthusiasm for singing at a very young age, and was just four years when she performed for an audience for the first time at a Coronation party. After years of competing in talent contests, Marie was invited to join a local pop group, the Gleneagles, when she was 14. The Gleneagles were soon regularly playing venues in Glasgow and Edinburgh, and one evening in 1962, the group was spotted by Marion Massey, who saw potential in the combo, in particular their charismatic lead singer. Massey became their manager, changed Marie's stage name to Lulu, and dubbed the band the Luvvers. In 1964, Massey landed a recording deal for the group with Decca Records, and Lulu & the Luvvers' first single, an enthusiastic cover of the Isley Brothers' "Shout," was a hit, rising to number seven on the U.K. singles charts. More chart successes followed -- "Can't Hear You No More," "Here Comes the Night," and "Satisfied" -- along with a steady stream of television, radio, and concert appearances that led to Melody Maker magazine naming Lulu Britain's most promising new act of 1965.
