Petula Clark Considers Pandemic Version Of "Downtown"

It may be more of a joke, but in an article in the British newspaper The Mirror, the great Pet Clark (now 87! Yikes!) talks about a host of things, including how she might re-record a special pandemic version of her signature song. 

“Someone sugges­­ted this,” she giggles, before that voice rings out: “When you’re alone and life is making you lonely you CAN’T EVEN go downtown!”

Like the recent Neil Diamond re-write of Sweet Caroline, I'd love to hear that!

She also reveals more about her relationship with John & Yoko, how she was actually in the background on "Give Peace A Chance," why she was booed in two languages during a concert in Montreal, how she fended off a horny Elvis Presley for Karen Carpenter and why Petula isn't even her real name.

That was great!  It started really funny then got poignant real fast.  Made you really think.  Very clever and done well.
