Sandie Shaw was born Sandra Goodrich in 1947 in Dagenham, London. She was a 17-year-old machine operator when Adam Faith's manager Eve Taylor discovered her. She signed with Pye in 1964 and immediately recorded a #1 hit with Bacharach & David's "(There's) Always Something There To Remind Me." "Long Live Love" was her second #1 and her final one was the 1967 Eurovision Song Contest winning "Puppet On A String
." For two decades until Madonna's third British charttopper "True Blue
," she was the only solo female singer to manage 3 #1 British hits. Despite her chart success in the UK during the British invasion, she had little impact on the American charts. In 1984 she teamed up with The Smiths and had #27 UK hit with "Hand In Glove."
