"Downtown" was written by Tony Hatch, who was inspired by the lights and sounds of New York City. It was the first of 15 consecutive Top 40 hits in the US. Her second # 1 song was "My love", my favorite song by Petula. She sold over 60 million records worldwide in various languages.
She is in her 80s today and living in her native England.
By the way, "Downtown" is now available in a digital format.
On this day in 1965, her song "Downtown" reached # 1 on Billboard USA.
