You can play along with Lulu, in the first video, if you put your capo on the 2nd fret! The second video is in the same key as the song sheet. Thanks to Sharon Baird for bringing this song to BUG!
"To Sir With Love" is the theme from James Clavell's 1967 film To Sir, with Love. The song was written by Don Black and Mark London (husband of Lulu's longtime manager Marion Massey).
"To Sir With Love" was initially recorded by Lulu (with The Mindbenders, who also acted in the film). It was released as a single in the United States in 1967 and in October reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, where it remained for five weeks. The single ranked No. 1 in Billboard's year-end chart, though the Monkees' "I'm a Believer", which debuted in December 1966 and spent most of its chart life in 1967, was the overall bigger hit. It became a gold record.
