"A little known fact about Pet is that, besides being the queen of the universe, she is the unknown mysterious cohesive force that keeps our universe together and prevents it from disintegrating from day to day. "

Back in the day Petula Clark was the major female voice of the whole British Invasion. Downtown, I Know a Place, Don't Sleep in the Subway, My Love,A Sign of the Times, Colour My World -- only Dusty Springfield had a similarly strong portfolio, and she's already in the Hall. With the exception of Patsy Cline (who should at least be in as an influence, Ms Clark is the longest outstanding obvious female snub and should be corrected asap.

Pet Clark should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Great voice and great songs. Her music and songs always put a smile on me.

As an FYI, Petula's first release was in 1949, with a song called "Put Your Shoes On Lucy." So her eligibility would be 1974 (the 1975 ceremony).

I love this lady. Her music is not revolutionary but solid, warm, passionate and tasteful. She deserves to be inducted.

Pet is my favorite female pop singer of the 1960's. Perhaps the hotest female singer in America when she charted with her string of singles from 1965-1968. She is a class act unique unto itself. Worthy of RRHF induction.

She won two grammys for rock and roll songs. She is the very best of the best and no one deserves to be inducted more!

I hope she gets in.. Pop is as muck rock,, As what Maddona does ..Petula Clark helped set the stage for many up and comming female singers..She has done it alll way beyond just rock. From her own TV show to films....... Wow it is endless talent.

Would actually like to see her get in, but the Hall wouldn't go for it and as Philip already pointed out, I don't think she even wants to.

Petula Clark should be in the RRHOF. She was a big influence on later female rock singers. First there was Petula, then Grace Slick and Linda Ronstandt.

Eligible for induction since 1983. Winner of a Grammy (Downtown), more hits than Dusty Springfield(already a member), Queen of the British invasion: It is a crime that she hasn't even been nominated. Someone needs to put a bug in the ears of the nominating committee!
