“…Dusty Springfield

Mary Isabel/Isobel Catherine Bernadette O’Brien,[note 1] OBE (16 April 1939 – 2 March 1999), known professionally as Dusty Springfield, was a British singer whose career spanned from the late 1950s to the 1990s, though is best known for her work during the 1960s when she released singles such as “I Only Want To Be With You” (1963), “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” (1966) and “Son of a Preacher Man” (1968) and her most acclaimed album Dusty in Memphis (1969). With her distinctive sensual sound, she is an important white soul singer, and at her peak was one of the most successful British female performers, with 18 singles in the Billboard Hot 100 from 1964 to 1970.[1] Her image, supported by a peroxide blonde beehive hairstyle, evening gowns, and heavy make-up, made her an icon of the Swinging Sixties; and she remains an enduring camp icon, especially in the gay community.[2]

Born in North London to a dysfunctional Irish Catholic family that enjoyed music, Springfield learned to sing at home. She joined her first professional group, The Lana Sisters, in 1958, then formed the pop-folk vocal trio The Springfields in 1960 with her brother Dion. Her solo career began in 1963 with the upbeat pop hit, “I Only Want To Be With You”. Among the hits that followed were “I Just Don’t Know What to Do with Myself” (1964), “Wishin’ and Hopin'” (1964), and “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” (1966). By 1966 she was the best selling female singer in the world, and topped a number of popularity polls, including Melody Maker’s Best International Vocalist;[3] and was the first British singer to top the New Musical Express readers’ poll for Female Singer.[4]

A fan of American pop music, she was the first public figure to bring little-known soul singers to a wider British audience by creating and hosting the first British performances of the top-selling Motown artists in 1965.[2] Her rendition of Bacharach’s “The Look of Love” was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Song. The marked changes of pop music in the mid-1960s left many female pop singers out of fashion. To boost her credibility as a soul artist, Springfield went to Memphis, Tennessee, to record an album of pop and soul music with the Atlantic Records main production team. Dusty in Memphis earned Springfield a nomination for a Grammy Award and it was awarded a spot in the Grammy Hall of Fame. International polls list the album among the greatest of all time. The track “Son of a Preacher Man” was released as a single and became an international Top 10 hit in 1969. After this album, Springfield’s success dipped for eighteen years. She returned to the Top 20 of the British and American charts in collaboration with the Pet Shop Boys on the songs “What Have I Done to Deserve This?”, “Nothing Has Been Proved” and “In Private”. In 1995, Springfield was diagnosed with breast cancer, and she died on 2 March 1999.

Interest in Springfield’s early output was revived in 1994, due to the inclusion of “Son of a Preacher Man” on the soundtrack of the movie Pulp Fiction. She is a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the U.K. Music Hall of Fame. International polls have named Springfield among the best female rock artists of all time. Her album, Dusty in Memphis, has been listed among the greatest albums of all time by Rolling Stone and VH1 artists, New Musical Express readers, and the Channel 4 viewers polls,[5] and in 2001, received the Grammy Hall of Fame award. …”
