Julie London - the sexiest singer ever

Give yourself a treat and listen to this. Recorded over 50 years ago it's sexier than the whole output of Lady Gaga and Beyonce put together. If Lily Allen had played 'Go Slow' by Julie London to the man who was so selfish in bed in 'It's Not Fair' she might still be with him. Maybe Julie London didn't possess the all-round vocal ability of jazz greats such as Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, and Peggy Lee. But as a sultry torch singer she was in a class of her own. She had it all. Unmistakable voice, pin-up good looks, and she could act.

  2. I don't know GC, says Jaffa. Are you sure it is not topped by Doris Day, singing "Move over Darling" ?
