Saw a vintage performance of Ms Shaw on TOTP2 last night.She looked VERY attractive and sultry...pity about the song.She is 56 today.
I know Morrissey and Sandie no longer speak but I thought the collaboration at the time was very exciting.
I remember the original performance of a bare footed Smiths and Sandie doing "Hand In Glove" on TOTP and it was amazing.Johnny really beefed up the sound on that single and seemed to really enjoy the extra limelight of being in a Morrissey-less Smiths.
For me the whole highlight of The Smiths and Sandie Shaw union was her amazing take on "Jeanne".Brilliant vocals.
Having said that.....she killed "Please Help The Cause Against Loneliness"
Some you win....
