As I’m sure most of you know by now Cilla Black died on 1st August 2015 aged 72. If you don’t know who Cilla Black is, she was a singer and TV personality from Liverpool, England.
I was really shocked to hear this news because Cilla was just one of those people you sort of think will be around forever even though they don’t really play a part in your life at all.
I read the news and I was just a bit like “woah, Cilla Black died.”
Cilla was on TV loads when I was a kid, I remember watching Blind Date on a Saturday night and Surprise, Surprise too and this is obviously what the rest of the nation remembers as well because that’s what a lot of people have been talking about since she died.
I’ve not seen many people really talking about Cilla’s music. I get it, she didn’t have any number one albums, she didn’t reach international success and if we’re being completely honest she wasn’t all that good. Despite all of that she did have a career as a singer and did quite well for herself musically in the 60s and 70s.
I like some of her songs and I thought that since I wanted to pay tribute to Cilla because she was a star from my childhood and it’s sad that she died I’d make a playlist of my top 10 Cilla Black songs / songs that she covered!
I’ll put the playlist here so that you can listen to it and I’d love it if you would tell me your favourite Cilla songs in the comments below, on Twitter @MissCharlotteEm and on any of my other social media sites which you can find by clicking here!
Rest in Peace Cilla! 🙂
