Part 13: Lena Zavaroni - Ma! He's making eyes at me

Why I bought it: I just couldn't believe my eyes. Somebody (creative direction by the Stax organization?) thought that songs like Ma! He's making eyes at me and Help me make it through the night would perfectly suit 10 year old girl?

What happened afterwards: "Instant celebrity came the way of Lena Zavaroni in 1974 when, aged nine, she sang Ma, He's Making Eyes at Me on the British TV talent shown Opportunity Knocks. It proved a very mixed blessing for Zavaroni who has died, aged 35, from the effects of anorexia." (source)
