2/6/16 – Mary Hopkin – In My Life – 1971

Video Of The Day

Song Of The Day

Mary Hopki B:W withguitarMary Hopkin in her prime singing a Beatles song on an American TV show. Knowing how she looked when she released her first single, Those Were The Days (Number one single in the UK in 1968) and looking at the set – this could be 1971?

I love that subtle Welsh folk warble in her voice and her beautiful hair. I’ve written about her before (see link below) but hadn’t seen this clip where she looks very like Lady Penelope from Thunderbirds.

Uncynical, warm, sincere, talented – those were the days.
