  1. They were talking of making a movie about Dusty Springfield with Nicole Kidman portraying her but not sure if it is past the planning stage. You never know with movies if they will get off the ground.

  2. Info is incorrect, Dusty had 18 songs in the Hot 100 in the States. Among them, Stay Awhile, All I See Is You, Losing You, and the Pet Shop Boys duet which got to No.2 (What Have I Done To Deserve This.

  3. Good catch. I had written Top 10 at top of article but wrote Hot 100 in the article and have corrected it. I didn’t list the Pet Shop Boys since it was a collaboration and not just Dusty singing.
