Today’s coupling comes from the stable of song-poem stalwart Tin Pan Alley, courtesy of the uniquely untalented Madelyn Buzzard: Our Own USA - a fine piece of flag-waving patriotism - and its terrible, tuneless flip What Will Love Do?
But what do we know about Madelyn Buzzard – apart from the fact that she simply cannot sing? There’s absolutely no info out there on the internet, and nothing in the Billboard archives – TPA had long since stopped advertising their wares there.
An actress by the same name appeared in the cult horror Three on a Meathook (based loosely on the real-life story serial killer Ed Gein), the Blaxploitation drama Combat Cops (as Whore #1) and on stage in a number of plays including Twelfth Night and Here Lies Jeremy Troy – but is she the same person? No doubt someone out there knows.
