CHARLOTTE LESLIE - MONSIEUR HARRISON

MAMAS AND THE PAPAS - I CALL YOUR NAME
when asked to imagine the man that she was singing about when recording this, cass whispered "john....john" (meaning john lennon) and if you listening closely at 1.26 you can hear it! she had quite a crush on him. great song too.

margo covered - friday

SAMANTHA JONES - COME TO ME SLOWLY
i could not believe my ears when i discovered she'd covered this - her voice is pure doll and from start to finish this version is marvy.

are there any other versions of margo songs that you know of? - let me know!

margo covered - thursday

CLAUDINE LONGET - I DON'T INTEND TO SPEND CHRISTMAS WITHOUT YOU
ok ok so i realise this song seems slightly out of season- but because it is genuinely a fantastic song, it means that it can be played any time of year. claudine also covered 'think of rain' but out of those 2 choices- this is her best margo cover.

don't forget that loveclaudine still updates regularly!
