Biography

A powerhouse of blue-eyed soul in the 1960s and beyond, British-born Dusty Springfield brought considerable depth and grit to such enduring pop-R&B hits as "I Only Want to be with You," "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" and "Son of a Preacher Man. " Her dusky, sensual, jazz-inflected voice and delivery, which convinced many radio listeners that she was African-American and not a willowy blonde from North London, propelled her to the heights of fame in the 1960s, with 18 singles on the Billboard chart between 1964 and 1970, including six Top 20 hits. The apex of her career was unquestionably the 1969 album Dusty in Memphis, a soul-drenched declaration that topped countless best-of lists in the decades that followed. Springfield's career declined in the 1970s, but she returned to the spotlight with a 1987 collaboration with the Pet Shop Boys on "What Have I Done to Deserve This?" and a revival of "Son of a Preacher Man" on the "Pulp Fiction" (1994) soundtrack. Tragically, Springfield's comeback was cut short by breast cancer, which claimed her life in 1999. However, her best singles remained enduring classics and tremendous influences on a generation of soul, blues and country singers that followed her.
