Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lolita (born January 17, 1931, St P lten, Austria - died June 30, 2010, Salzburg, Austria), n e Edith Zuser, was an Austrian pop singer who recorded under the stage name Lolita. She began singing in local clubs while working as a kindergarten teacher. Discovered in 1956, she began her recording career in 1957. Early recordings typically were songs with a Latin American, South Sea Island, or similar 'exotic' theme. In December, 1959, she recorded what would become her only gold record, "Seemann, deine Heimat ist das Meer" ("Sailor, Your Home is the Sea"), which was a hit single in the United States, peaking at number five, and in Japan as well as in German-speaking Europe in 1960. It was one of a handful of records sung in a language other than English, to have been successful in the mainstream American market.show more
