Cilla Black – The Artist
Priscilla Maria Veronica White OBE (1943 – 2015), better known as Cilla Black, was an English singer, television presenter, actress, and author. Championed by her friends, the Beatles, Black began her career as a singer in 1963. Her singles “Anyone Who Had a Heart” and “You’re My World” both reached number one in the UK in 1964. She had 11 top 10 hits on the UK Singles Chart between then and 1971, and an additional eight hits that made the top 40. In May 2010, new research published by BBC Radio 2 showed that her version of “Anyone Who Had a Heart” was the UK’s biggest-selling single by a female artist in the 1960s. Along with a successful recording career in the 1960s and early 1970s, Black hosted her own BBC variety show, Cilla (1968–1976). After a brief time as a comedy actress, she became a prominent television presenter in the 1980s and 1990s, hosting hit entertainment shows such as Blind Date (1985–2003), Surprise Surprise (1984–2001) and The Moment of Truth (1998–2001).
You’re My World – The Song
“You’re My World” is a ballad originally recorded in 1963 as “Il mio mondo” (“My World”) by Umberto Bindi, who co-wrote the Italian version with Gino Paoli. The song has been recorded by many artists, including Daryl Braithwaite, Guys ‘n’ Dolls and Helen Reddy but perhaps one of the most popular versions is that recorded by Cilla Black. UK record producer George Martin commissioned an English version to be recorded by his protégée Cilla Black. The English lyrics were written by noted American lyricist Carl Sigman who evoked Gino Paoli’s Italian title (‘Il Mio Mondo’ or ‘My World’) but created a wholly original English lyric.”
The Terrestrial Globe – The Shape
This record is modelled into a silhouette of a terrestrial globe on a display stand. A globe is a spherical model of Earth. Globes serve similar purposes to maps, but unlike maps, do not distort the surface that they portray except to scale it down. A globe of Earth is called a terrestrial globe. A globe of the celestial sphere is called a celestial globe. A globe is often mounted on a stand and able to spin. They are often used in schools and collages as educational aids or decorative versions are used as ornaments.
