Lulu has parlayed the effervescent energy and joyously explosive singing behind "Shout" into a showbiz career of ironclad durability. She has rarely let herself disappear since that 1964 hit, and notched resourcefully diverse achievements: impressive acting as a Sidney Poitier-bothering schoolgirl in To Sir, With Love, and visually shocked hosting of the TV show in which Jimi Hendrix announced his mighty talent in the 1960s; singing a Bond theme in the 1970s; raunchily collaborating with Take That on "Relight My Fire" in the 1990s; and this decade, "mentoring" on American Idol. If all I can remember from the 1980s is a guest appearance on Super Gran, I'm sure the fault is mine.
