From the singer better-known for the TV theme, White Horses, a fast-paced beat-girl song with a cynical edge about living in a dreary place where �nothing very much ever happens�. Surely one of the few uses of �Etc etc� as part of a chorus.
Dramatic put down of boring towns,so good it influenced a book called Boring Towns nearly 40 years later."The town I live in has 27 churches"sings Jackie with atheistic venom.At least these days the churches will be empty or turned into flats.Bells clang,drums rumble and it all ends with Jackie so bored with her environment the song tails off with her singing "etc,etc,etc."She also did White Horses,so she deserves respect.
ICI records present a promotional tune for Savlon Babycare.One for astronauts who are missing their newborns.Jackie Lee whispers to a sleeping infant as
an Hawaiian guitar gently guides sleeping child to distant imaginary galaxies,presumably peopled by grass-skirted aliens.More space commodity than Space Oddity,but all the more charming for that.
