Lulu is much loved with nostalgics in America. She had the biggest hit of 1967.

American eldergays love her especially.

They leave messages like this under her videos:-

"This song is timeless,makes me very emotional.only lulu could sing it"

"Beautiful the voice of an Angel. LuLu We will always cherish you and your music."

I think it depends on the context, for example, Dorothy's very funny line in The Golden Girls' first episode: "Oh, it is wonderful dating in Miami. All the single men under 80 are cocaine smugglers".

In the unfunny UK remake The Brighton Belles, the line goes: "Oh, it is wonderful dating in Brighton. All the single men under 80 are antique dealers"
