Encyclopedia entry for 'Pat Carroll' LETTER:

StylePop

History
Melbourne-born pop singer Pat Carroll was a regular on Bandstand and The Go!! Show during the mid-1960s. She issued seven singles on W&G between 1964 and 1966: `He's My Guy'/`He Loves Me Too', `Where Have You Been?'/`That's All', `Why Do Fools Fall in Love?'/`End of the World', `I Know'/`Chained to a Melody', `Did He Call Today Mama?'/`Here I Am', `You're No Good'/ `Don't Come Running Back' and `He's a Rebel'/ `Talk About Love'.

In 1967 she won an award and travelled to England. She teamed up with Olivia Newton-John (at the suggestion of The Seekers' Athol Guy) as Pat and Olivia. The duo became successful on television and in clubs. In 1969, after she was unable to renew her working visa, Carroll returned to Australia. She recorded `All Kinds of Everything'/`In Your World' for Fable and it became her only national hit (#19 in June 1970). That year she married ex-Strangers guitarist John Farrar (then part of Marvin, Welch and Farrar). Carroll recorded three singles for the Interfusion label, `To the Sun'/`Out of my Mind' (September 1972), `Live Love'/`To the Sun' (October 1972) and `Now I'm Stuck on You'/`I'm Not Ready' (October 1973). Throughout most of the 1970s, Carroll was based in the UK and the USA, where Farrar was a top composer and producer. Farrar composed `Hopelessly Devoted to You', which Olivia Newton-John sang on the Grease soundtrack.
