Rita and the Tiaras, "Gone With The Wind Is My Love" (1960s)

There's something incredible -- weird but effective -- about the singer's phrasing on this classic northern soul record. She sounds like she is singing fragments instead of complete sentences ("What things I possess/I knew it was wrong/you said it was [mumble] and i...DID it for you baby"), which somehow fits with the anguished, epic style signalled by the vaguely Latinate syntax of the title. Tatu should so cover this.


  • The lead singer is Jazz Legend Rita Graham. She is still performing live in Atlanta every Sunday evening at the Sambucca Cafe, and is one of the singers for the Tribute Showband!
