We note the passing of Cilla Black at age 72, a name vaguely familiar to Americans but a prominent figure for British music and television fans. She didn’t have much chart success stateside — “You’re My World,” from 1965, probably is her best-known record in the U.S. — in contrast to the many hits she racked up in the UK. A Liverpool native who worked at the legendary Cavern club and became good friends with the Beatles and their manager Brian Epstein, Black later became a popular TV host (or “presenter,” as the Brits like to call it), and became one of that nation’s most beloved personalities. Here’s my favorite record of hers, “I’ve Been Wrong Before,” an early Randy Newman compodition backed by George Martin’s orchestra. Elvis Costello liked this song so much he did his own version on his ’90s album “Kojak Variety.”
