Behind the Music

This little snippet from Pandora was just too cute to miss…

Little Eva Narcissus Boyd was a babysitter for Carole King and Gerry Goffin when the songwriting team was inspired to write “Locomotion,” a song based on a dance that Eva would do around the house. Eva also got to sing on their demo, which impressed Don Kirshner enough to release it as it was. One of the greatest girl group hits, “Locomotion,” hit number one in 1962; the follow-up, “Keep Your Hands Off My Baby,” was also written by Goffin-King.

No mention of Kylie Minogue’s version in the blurb. (EGREGIOUS). Also, can anyone see this video and not think of Robin Sparkles? Is it even possible?

About This Lady

I am a writer who has lived in DC, Los Angeles and Chicago. In the morning, I write novels. During the day, I write ads, brochures, websites and blogs. At night, I don't do any writing because that's too much writing.

Trying to be Auntie Mame but right now I feel more like Liz Lemon in execution. It's a process, people.

I have a food/fiction blog called Some Kitchen Stories.
