Queens of British Pop


Last night the BBC rescreened The Queens of British Pop, a pretty good documentary, available via iPlayer until 7:59PM Sun, 12 Feb 2012.

The programme featured Dusty Springfield, Sandie Shaw, Marianne Faithfull, Suzi Quatro, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Kate Bush.

The first ten minutes were devoted to Dusty Springfield, not enough in my opinion. Spurred on by the Dusty paucity, here’s my choice of videos for the BBC’s chosen Queens.

Alternative for Dusty

Alternative for Sandie

Alternative for Marianne

Alternative for Suzi

Alternative for Siouxsie

Alternative for Kate

And Annie Lennox, who wasn’t included as the programme seemed to end late ’70s.
