Petula Clark Facts
Her favorite songs are "Black Coffee" by Peggy Lee, "I've Got You Under My Skin" by Frank Sinatra, "Hallelujah" by Michael McDonald, "This Masquerade" by The Carpenters, "Life In The Fast Lane" by Eagles, "Something" by The Beatles, "Wouldn't It Be Nice" by The Beach Boys and "Love For Sale" by Clare Teal. Of all the songs she has recorded, her favorites are "To Memphis" and her duet with Dusty Springfield, "Corner Of The Sky". (Source: BBC Radio 2 "Tracks of My Years").

She was awarded the CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) in the 1998 Queen's Honours List for her services to music.

In 1968 Clark and singer Harry Belafonte were singing a duet on her show when she touched Belafonte's arm. A representative for the show's sponsor, Chrysler Corp., saw it and ordered the director to have them re-tape the duet and not to have Clark touch his arm, the rationale being that viewers in the South would be outraged to see a white woman touching a black man, and the South was a big market for Chrysler's cars. Clark redid the scene, but when she found out the reason why, she and her husband - the show's producer - stormed into the control booth, ordered the director to destroy the second take and keep the original one. As expected, when the show was aired a few weeks later, many stations in the South wouldn't show it, and Chrysler received many letters from outraged Southerners saying they would never buy a Chrysler product again because of the company's sponsorship of the show.
