Just a...

Born on this ostensibly unlucky-for-some day were such luminaries as Daphne du Maurier, Stevie Wonder, Patron Saint Bea Arthur, the utterly wonderful Frances Barber, Armistead Maupin, Selina Scott, Ritchie Valens, inventor Trevor Baylis, Tim Pigott-Smith [who I once stood next to at an urinal, but that's another story], Harvey Keitel, rock'n'roller Joe Brown, Zoe Wanamaker, the uber-cool Alison Goldfrapp... and this lady.

We all know the lovely Mary Wells as the girly singer of early Motown hits such as My Guy and The One Who Really Loves You, but, unbeknownst to moi, apparently much later on she re-emerged as a bit of a Disco Diva.

Here she is singing the "club classic" Gigolo (complete with an appropriate video montage from Richard Gere's American Gigolo).

Thank Disco It's Friday (the Thirteenth - oo-er)!

Mary Esther Wells (13th May 1943 – 26th July 1992)


  1. I have heard that Mary did dabbler in disco a bit. Happy Friday Jon! Friday the 13th for me have always been terrific days. Cheers!

    1. I am in the midst of party planning for tomorrow's Eurovision bash, so hardly a disastrous day so far... Jx
