Erika Who?

The things you learn when you're 'ripping' music! (Horrible verb that, isn't it? What's wrong with 'transfer'?) Ever since I was a teenager, and that's going back somewhat, I've had a tune lodged in my mind, "I Want to Marry a Lighthouse Keeper". It's from the soundtrack to "A Clockwork Orange". Well, I bought the CD recently, and learned that the song is sung by Erika Eigen, and eventually I googled my way here, to a charming wee story of three young Americans in London in the late 60s. I wonder what happened to Erika? I love the way she sings the lyric "How 'bout you?" as if she was under water.
