Samantha Jones: Surrounded by a ray of sunshine
What could be more appropriate than having our Sam sing about sunshine as we head into the summer slowdown? This song was expected to give the singer a big hit – after all, pop is seldom catchier than this. Issued in 1967, its writer, Brit girl supremo Charles Blackwell, was convinced he’d written the song that would turn around Samantha’s chart fortunes. It wasn’t to be, however. If you like a danceable number like this, you can find 30 of the best in this month’s feature on British female northern soul.
