Anglo For Your Ear: Cliff Richard’s “Devil Woman”

Hot bod aside, Sir Cliff Richard is little more than a punchline these days and for good reason. However, he used to be a relatively consistent producer of quite listenable pop songs, like 1976′s “Devil Woman,” which features the lyric, “She’s gonna get you from behiiiiind!”

I’m sure that one came back to bite him in the you-know-what in later years.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
