another brilliant MF track... there's enough to do a Marianne Faithfull Month of tracks! My personal faves from her 60s recordings are "Young Girl Blues", "Something Better", "Sha La La Song", "Im A Loser" "In the Night Time", "As Tears Go By' and her brilliant version of Donovan's "Sunny Goodge Street". For curiosity value, you should listen to her nutty version of Greensleeves.... oh what the hell; check out all of them! (Im a bit of a fan in case you hadn't guessed)

Just finished reading Marianne's amazing autobiography "Faithfull". Anyone interested in M.F., or pop stars, or 60s London, or the farther reaches of human nature, will be fascinated by this very candid book.
Thanks for M.F. Week!

i agree that 'faithfull' is a magnificent book although her new book (memories, dreams and reflections) reads a bit like a rambling old woman (sorry marianne!)

Haha she's so RP here. Maybe the slight mockney set in when she lived on the wall in Soho?
