Raquel Welch – This Girl’s Back In Town (US 12″ Promo)

Posted by DjPaulT on October 5th, 2011


Raquel Welch (born September 5, 1940) is an American actress, author and sex symbol.

Actress Raquel Welch worked as a model, waitress, and television weather-girl before making her film debut in 1964. Launched as a sex symbol after her scantily clad appearance in One Million Years BC, she was rarely challenged by later roles. Her later feature films include Legally Blonde and Forget About It. She continues to be regarded as one of the world’s great beauties.

In 1987, she flirted with a pop singing career, releasing the dance single “This Girl’s Back In Town.” Written by Paul Jabara and Bob Esty, the song was produced and arranged by Michael Zager. “This Girl’s Back In Town” peaked at #29 on the US dance chart.

    This was interesting. Nice dance-pop tune. Didn’t know she made records too 🙂
    Paul Jabara was a great composer, and with Bob Esty / Michael Zager results can only be good.
