Girl, Uninterrupted Special Edition: Kate/Neil Sedaka/The July Four: Kate — “Strange Girl”, Neil Sedaka — “Cold Girl”, The July Four — “Frightened Little Girl”: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — November 8, 2021

240) Kate — “Strange Girl”

This ’68 A-side was one of three singles by the London based group. Vernon Joynson says the song is “rather ordinary.” That is nuts. This haunting song was chosen to lead off the first volume of the fabled Fading Yellow comps, and it was a perfect choice.

241) Neil Sedaka — “Cold Girl”

Neil Sedaka?! Yes, you heard right, Neil F’ing Sedaka! He co-wrote this ’66 song with Carole Bayer Sager, but never released it. A shame — a very kinky song, the kind you don’t take home to mother (especially the kind of mother who loves Neil Sedaka). Bobby Sherman did record a terrible version as a ’67 B-side.

Here is Bobby Sherman’s version:

242) The July Four — “Frightened Little Girl”

’67 A-side. Really don’t know anything about the group.
