Sheila & B. Devotion

LP: Singin' In the Rain
Song: "Singin' In the Rain"

Sheila (her real name's "Annie," but that was taken) had already been a pop star in France for several years when she hooked up with B. Devotion to record and release a couple of disco records in the late '70s and early '80s, right before disco became a four-letter word. I had already been grumbling in the rain for several hours today when I went to see Darla at my friends' house up in Northgate. All signs indicate that Darla will definitely be disco. It's amazing, the power a little baby girl has to lift you, soaring, out of the doldrums.
