Jazz + Western + TV
Julie London released 29 studio albums between 1955-1969. Her first single, Cry Me A River would become her greatest success, reaching the top 10 in the U.S.
As a single, Cry Me A River would end up selling 3 million copies. Other notable singers that have recorded it post-Julie’s 1955 version include Barbara Streisand, Michael Buble, Rick Astley, and Elaine Paige. However, the song will always be connected with Julie’s “original” version.
Apart from Cry Me A River, Julie recorded many Jazz standards including Fly Me To The Moon, Bye Bye Blackbird, Dream A Little Dream Of Me, A Taste Of Honey, Summertime, and Why Don’t You Do Right?
She also had a reasonably successful film career, starring mainly in Westerns between 1944-1959.
In TV, she made many appearances, most famously in Emergency! Where she played Dixie McCall between 1972-1978.
