Having divorced both Marvin Hamlisch and Burt Bacharach, she's living off her past glories, occasionally turning out a song or two for movie soundtracks.

Whatever happened to Gilbert O'Sullivan?

Are you alluding to W.S.Gilbert ('Bab') and Sir Arthur Sullivan, or am I just being clueless about popular culture again?
lyrics by 'Bab', score by Sir Arthur Sullivan wrote: Behold the Lord High Executioner, a personage of noble rank and title,
A dignified and potent officer, whose function is particularly vital ...
Whatever happened to gentle Alice Brown, whose father was the terror of a small Italian town?

Oh in a little while from now
if I'm not feeling anyless sour
I promise myself to treat myself
and visit a nearby tower
and climbing to the top
will throw myself off
in an effort to make it clear
to whoever what it's like when you're shattered
left standing in the lurch at a church
where people saying 'my god
that's tough she's stood him up
no point in us remainig
we may as well go home'
as I did on my own
alone again naturally....

I remember that song, but never paid attention to the artist.

That was your father?

My dad just had the same name. My Dad died when I was a baby. When I was a little girl it caused me confusion; I thought my Daddy died and became a singer. When you're little, things like that make sense. :D

Gilbert O'Sullivan the songwriter is alive and well, apparently and not in a jar somewhere. ;)

Sure. That makes perfect sense!

Sinead: Stop calling me crazy

Ireland

Sinead O'Connor



DUBLIN, Republic of Ireland (AP) -- One-time pop sensation Sinead O'Connor is back in the news -- by taking out a full-page ad pleading for people to stop making fun of her.

O'Connor, who shot to international fame in 1990 with her biggest hit "Nothing Compares 2 U," claimed Friday she had been "consistently ridiculed, lashed and called mad" for decades, particularly in her native Ireland.

"I don't think there can be any person male or female from this country who has been as consistently lashed as I have been and always am no matter what I set out to do," she complained during her 2,000-word essay published in the Irish Examiner newspaper.

"If ye all think I am such a crazy person why do ye use me to sell your papers?" she wrote, adding, "Please, I just want to be a little old lady now, and not be all controversial and not be bashed and called crazy and laughed at when I open my mouth to sing or speak."
