XPN’s Gotta Hear Song of The Week: “Cut Copy Me” by Petula Clark


petclark This week’s new Gotta Hear Song of the Week is “Cut Copy Me” by the legendary Petula Clark. Say what?!?! That’s right; Petula Clark, singer of hit songs from the Sixties including the huge international hits like “Downtown,” “Don’t Sleep In The Subway,” and “I Know A Place,” has returned with a gorgeous and haunting new song called “Cut Copy Me.” The 80 year old releases her new album Lost in You, on April 2nd on The End Records. The album features a mix of new songs like “Cut Copy Me,” as well as covers of songs by Gnarls Barkley, Elvis Presley and a beautiful take on “Imagine” by John Lennon. “Cut Copy Me” is sparse and ambient yet dramatically engaging. Delicate acoustic guitars intermingle with a lithe piano phrase, and Clark’s tender vocals float above a striking string arrangement. Below, listen to “Cut Copy Me.”

    Will be interesting to see if the rest of the songs use the “echo” (a la Cher) on this track. I’m a big Pet song. With Tom Jones and Pet making new recording, the 60s are back.
