Surely inspiring the romantic fantasies of many a young lad throughout the ‘70s, the divine Freda Payne was just as dream worthy in the late ‘90s. That was when the singer-actress played the very kittenish Gran, a voodoo practicing conjurer, in Ragdoll, one of Full Moon’s popular puppet-based terror epics. Ever dedicated, Payne even composed & sang the film’s fun theme song.
Of course, Payne, whose 1971 album Contact featured a gorgeous gatefold poster of her at her slinky dress wearing prime, is best known for the smash hit Band of Gold. She reprised this 1970 stomper, sixteen years later, as a fun duet with the equally chart worthy Belinda Carlisle.
Unsurprisingly unstoppable, the still popular Payne is, happily, continuing to give her very glittery best at https://www.fredapayne.com.

When you’re a possessed killer doll there is only one thing that you need, besides an innocent soul or two to take over (of course), and that is — a band of gold. Thankfully, for the over ominous Annabelle that’s exactly what she receives in the first few minutes of her latest offering, Annabelle Comes Home. As the Warrens, the central couple of this film series, drive our deadly inanimate lass off to her final resting place, Freda Payne’s classic song of heartbreak pops up on the radio.
Of course, Annabelle being Annabelle, she might prefer a still sweet yet harder edged cover version like the one provided by Belinda Carlisle, the sassily magnetic leader of the Go-Go’s.
But whatever version she ultimately chooses, there is one thing for certain -this mistress of mayhem definitely has good taste!
