Dusty Springfield: I Just Don't Know What to do With Myself

Bob Stanley wrote in The Times earlier this year:
Until relatively recently she was seen as one of a crop of stars of the era famous enough to be known by their first names — Cilla, Sandie, Lulu and Dusty. All of them scored a string of hits between 1964 and the turn of the Seventies; all of them had their own TV series.
Yet whenever a new starlet has appeared this decade, be it Amy Winehouse, Duffy or Adele, Dusty is always the one cited as a reference point.
This recording of the Bacharach and David song reached number three in the UK singles chart in 1966.
The best website devoted to Dusty Springfield's life and recordings is Woman of Repute.
