Cilla Black, Top Pop Star in Swinging Sixties Britain, Dies at 72. (The New York Times, 8/4/2015)
Known for her big, belting, smoke-edged voice, Ms. Black recorded more than a dozen albums and several dozen singles, including the hits “Anyone Who Had a Heart,” by Burt Bacharach and Hal David (didn't chart in U.S.); “It’s for You,” by Mr. Lennon and Mr. McCartney (peaked at #76, 3 weeks on Hot 100); “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling,” by Phil Spector, Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil (didn't chart); and “Alfie,” by Mr. Bacharach and Mr. David. Ms. Black sang that song to promote the British release of “Alfie,” the 1966 film starring Michael Caine (peaked at #95, 3 weeks); Cher sang it on the soundtrack of the American release (#32, 6 weeks), and Dionne Warwick had a hit with it in the United States (#15, 17 weeks).
"You're My World" spent 7 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, peaking at #26 for 2 weeks. The single received a lot of radio airplay when it was first released and temporarily shined a bright light on Cilla, mainly because of her Beatles connection.
