My friend Shaun brought to my attention that 60s starlet Sue Lyon who played the underage sexy tease Lolita in 1962 recorded a single that was released. The A-side was the novelty song “Lolita Ya-Ya” the diddy she sang in the movie. However, the B-side “Turn on the Moon” is a surprisingly catchy song where Lyon shows off a pretty good, albeit studio-enhanced, voice. Lyon never sang again and spent the rest of the decade competing with lookalike blondes, Tuesday Weld and Carol Lynley, for the same roles. See below to hear for yourself.
