Song of the day: Cunningham- Norma Jean Wants To Be A Movie Star
In 1975, the American singer John Cunningham recorded a song under the name Cunningham. As you probably have noticed, the song was written about Marilyn Monroe, whose real name was Norma Jean Baker. He recorded some other singles, which had no success. Therefore, he went on with writing songs for others, including Rhinestone Cowboy for Glen Campbell. His own recording would be a hit in the Netherlands, reaching number 10. The song was recorded again by the Sundown Company for the movie Goodbye, Norma Jean. It was one week in the US chart, reaching number 84. Enjoy
