Hey There Georgie Girl


Love this song, by The Seekers. Hey There Georgie Girl.

Rita Tushingham played great roles about social life, changes etc. There was one film that I didn’t get the title of that was more Salvadore Dali. Surreal films in 60’s Britain were laconic, attacking the system from all angles.

Other films from the sixties about the changing attitudes and roles of women that I liked:

Barbarella and Girl on a Motorcycle. Very brash wat out 60’s female-led films. They broke out of the kitchen sink, subservient British (middle-class) or broken down drug (working class)

Poor Cow. When this came on tv in the sixties, I was about 12 or so and had to watch it with my parents sitting there. I remember the silence.

A taste of Honey. Always associated with the early Beatles music.

Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Just a great film.

All the social lessons learnt in the 60s were trampled over, even laughed at, dissdained and used for commercially and so on.

I am interested in multimedia work: songwriting, art, and creative writing. I have been involved also in theatre and music performances.
