On this date, July 16, 1977 Marg dropped dead on stage at the age of 49. Canada lost one of its sweetest voices. She will always remain one of my favourite female singers!
Marg & Charlie

Sandy.

Maybe you can help me here. Do you remember the song Marg use to sing "Darlene". I can't seem to find it anywhere.
Those were the days eh!
ad.

Adrien,
My feeble memory does not recall that song. Marg did a lot of covers of early recordings so I tried searching the 78RPM Archive and the HonkingDuck but came up empty. Perhaps another Catter will help!

I find it hard to believe that she was only 49.
Bobad, good find but hard to follow up as there are no lyrics shown.

Here are a few lines that I remember. maybe a word or two not correct.

"Darlene, Darlene,
In my____ eyes your a Queen.
I'm sorry for Larry,
Ton, Dick and Harry.
For they never will Mary,
My darling Darlene.

Adrien, you and I are probably of a similar vintage. I was 20 when Marg died and 49 at that time looked much older than it does looking back from the perspective of 64 today. Quoting Johnny Cash: "Time Changes Everything!"

That is very true Sandy. Come to think of it, that whole gang looked old.

Sometimes truth is stranger than fiction. I find that Charlie Chamberlain also died on this date 5 years earlier than Marg.
