Sandie Shaw Brief Biography


Sandie Shaw is one of the icons of '60s Britain. As Sandra Goodrich of Dagenham she was discovered as a 17-year-old by the late Adam Faith. Her most famous songs include her three UK number ones: 'Puppet On A String (1967 Eurovision Song Contest winner)', '(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me', and 'Long Live Love'. Other notable recordings included 'Girl Don't Come', 'Tell The Boys', and 'Monsieur Dupont'.

Sandie had a voice laced with an appealing vulnerability, and was renowned for performing barefoot! In 1984 she collaborated with The Smiths on 'Hand In Glove', and, like most of the British female singers of the '60s, seems revered by successive generations.
