Billboard named “To Sir With Love” 1967’s number one song of the year (51 years ago).

It was sung by Scottish singer/songwriter Lulu, and tomorrow she turns 70-years old.

By the time she was in her teens, Lulu’s group, The Luvvers, had hit it it big in the UK; when “To Sir With Love” came around she made her acting debut, co-staring with Sidney Poitier, in addition to singing the title song.

Earlier this year, Lulu had the lead role in the London production of the musical “42nd Street.”

To Boomers, “To Sir With Love” is one of the songs that everybody our age knows…one of many that add up to the soundtrack of our life.

Happy birthday, Lulu, to you with love.
