“Where Are You Now (My Love)” — Jackie Trent

Despite being one of the most successful British lyricists of the 1960s, most people don’t recognise Jackie Trent’s name. But pretty much every Brit instantly recognises one particular song she wrote the words to.

And I mean every Brit…not just music fans and Mastermind contestants. Every single Brit, without exception.

I bet the Queen could sing it to you, it’s so well-known to those of us who live on this rainy piece of rock which separates the Atlantic Ocean from the North Sea.
