"Don't Cry For Me, Argentina"

OK, more B'way: This '78 Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice showstopper topped the UK charts for Julie Covington. Regret and defiance in the face of imminent death. The working title was "It's Only Your Love Returning". Became Patti LuPone's signature song after her tearful rendition at the '80 Grammys for which she received a resounding standing O. A staple of Laura Branigan's concert repertoire even though she never recorded it. Madonna took it to #8 and even Zamfir (!) covered it. Song? Musical?

Yesterday's answer: "Hippy Hippy Shake" by Chan Romero.
THAT'S when The Beatles were The Beatles!!! Gotta love Austin Powers - yeah, Baby, yeah! "In his time he was the coolest secret agent alive. Unfortunately, this is not his time".
