Lulu – the songwriter

Most people know Lulu, the singer and entertainer, who has been performing for the best part of five decades and still has the youthful looks and boundless energy of someone half her age.

What some people may not know is that Lulu is an accomplished songwriter, often writing with her brother Billy Lawrie. She has even penned hits for other artists.

Her biggest hit would be “I Don’t Wanna Fight” for Tina Turner, a worldwide hit in 1993 and featured on the soundtrack for the Tina bio pic “What’s Love Got To Do With It”.

David Cassidy scored a US hit with “No Bridge I Wouldn’t Cross” in 1998. Forgive the quality.

You can listen to a better audio quality version here.

“My Angel Is Here” is a beautiful song which was a country hit for Wynonna Judd in 1996.

Of course, Lulu has recorded many of her own songs. Here are a few of my favourites.

The 1999 single “Hurt Me So Bad”.

The 1994 single “Goodbye Baby and Amen”.

This performance of “Gateway To Heaven” was from 1999/2000 but wasn’t released until 2005 on the album “A Little Soul In Your Heart”.
