Wednesday When It Was Music & Movies ~ “To Sir With Love” ~ Lulu

Sidney Poitier… You will never be forgotten.

Your Class, Dignity, Elegance, Grace. You were the best of the best and one of my favorite actors. I cried all day hearing the news and watching all the homages.

 

“To Sir With Love”.

The song still brings a warmth over me. It is as fabulous today as when it was first released in 1967.

Initially this song was recorded with The Mindbenders, who also acted in the film. It hit #1 on Billboard 100 for 5 consecutive weeks in the US and ended up earning the number one position for the entire year. In the UK it was never ever released for the hit it was in its own right, only remaining the B side to the 1967 No. 11 hit “Let’s Pretend”. US Release B side was “It’s Getting Harder All The Time” which was also in the movie.

I have watched this film at least 200 times in my life. It is among my top two favorites of Sidney Poitier, with the other being “A Patch Of Blue”.

Lulu’s voice couldn’t have gotten any better, it was picture perfect no pun…
