About The Ladybirds

The Ladybirds

THE LADYBIRDS. British female vocal harmony trio, probably most famous for their appearances on The Benny Hill Show. They participated in over 60 episodes between 1968 and 1991. In addition, they were long-standing backing singers to many established artists and perennial television performers of the period. After signing to Decca Records in August 1965, Marc Bolan recorded his debut single. The Ladybirds sang backing vocals, while apart from Bolan's vocals, all other music was created by studio session musicians. "The Wizard" was released on 19th November 1965. In 1966, the Ladybirds were recruited to provide vocal backing on BBC TV's "Top of The Pops" programme. They continued in this role until 10th August 1978. The Ladybirds sang backing vocals on Sandie Shaw's 1967 British No1 hit "Puppet on a String" (joining her for the live performances in Vienna Austria) when the song won the Eurovision Song Contest. In 1969, when Benny Hill joined Thames TV, he recruited them for his show. Their first number was "Goin Out of My Head"
