Celebrity Rock: Bang Bang (She Shot Me Down) (1967)

Most people think of Raquel Welch as an actress whose resume included "Hannie Coulder", "Kansas City Bomber", "1,000,000 Years B. C.", and "Fathom", as well as trying television, guest-starring, for example, on Mork & Mindy in the late 70's. What you might not know is that the lady can also sing.

Raquel appeared on The Hollywood Palace in September 1967, on an episode hosted by actor-singer Sammy Davis, Jr., and covered "Bang Bang (She Shot Me Down)", which in this case has the subtitle changed to "My Baby Shot Me Down". "Bang Bang" was also recorded by Frank & Nancy Sinatra (separately), and Cher, among others.
