Break-A-Way

I present to you, a less-than-interesting YouTube video of quite possibly of the catchiest, funnest, smileyest songs I've ever heard! Beryl Marsden's 1965 single, "Break-A-Way". Oh, god, when her voice gets a little snarly, like she's just getting over a cold, I think my heart breaks just the slightest bit. Beryl went on to join the strange lineup of Rod Stewart, Peter Green, Mick Fleetwood, and others in Shotgun Express in 1966 after her final solo single "What She Got" turned out to be a bit of a flop. This song, however, is a timeless pop gem if there ever was one.

Did you know Tracey Ullman covered this, when she used to be a pop star? Her version is even better. I`ve got the 10" of "They don`t know about love" somewhere, which is a real heartbreaker....

I played the Tracey Ullman version once when I was DJing at a friend's club night, one person danced to it. That person became my hero
