SONG LIST

Most connoisseurs of important popular music are well aware of Petula Clark's remarkable recording career, with successes spanning continents and decades--after all, she has been performing since she was barely tall enough to sing into a microphone. But there is much more to Petula Clark than 'Downtown' and her long list of other hit records. Few are aware of Petula's substantial accomplishments as a composer and lyricist despite the fact that she has created and contributed to dozens of songs.
--From sleeve notes written by Jim Pierson for the "Beautiful Sounds: the Petula Clark Songbook" CD, that features 25 Petula penned compositions.

Listed below in alphabetical order are many of the songs that Petula has written. Some have been composed by Petula in their entirety. Others are collaborations with other composers and lyricists in a variety of languages. Still others have been written by Petula under the songwriting pseudonym, Al Grant. Each one showcases the artistry of the multi-faceted Petula Clark.
