Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn?With the release of their entire catalog in remastered form last week, you'd expect that The Beatles would top the charts, for a week at least. Not so fast (via):
- Roger Waters
Dame Vera Lynn beat The Beatles and other artists to top the British charts on Sunday, and become the oldest living singer to have a number one hit album, at the age of 92.Don't shed too many tears for the (remaining) lads from Liverpool, tho'. They still notched numbers five (Sgt. Pepper's . . .), six (Abbey Road), nine (Revolver), and ten (Rubber Soul), anyway.* * *
'We'll Meet Again -- The Very Best Of Vera Lynn', a compilation of 24 of her best-loved recordings, has been rising through the charts, 70 years on since she recorded the title track.
