Rose Murphy - Busy Line

Rose Murphy had a very special voice and she had a habit of inserting her catch phrase "chi-chi" into songs, that's why she got known as the as the "chi-chi girl".

In this video clip she sings the song "Busy line". If you want to hear her actually singing her trademark phrase "chi-chi" you should check out her version of "I can't give you anything but love".

What do you think of Rose Murphy singing Busy Line? Please comment.

Awwww. I love this track- I use "Busy Line" as a ringtone on my mobile. "I Wanna Be Loved By You" is adorable too- she reminds me of Betty Boop!

I was fortunate enough to have
heard Rose Chichi Murphy in person
at Barney Josephson's The Cookery
in Greenwich Village in the early
70's and was wowed by her.

I first heard this song when I was very young(I am now 71) and found I could impersonate her which has made a lot of my family laugh. I think she was fabulous.

I love Rose Murphy,s voice and this song is beautiful. One of her wonderfully unique songs is Button Up Your Overcoat which she sang beautifully.I will always remember her for this.
