Anita Ward is probably best known for singing "You can ring my be-e-el, ring my bell" back in 1979. The former schoolteacher (our were never that glamorous!), originated from Memphis, Tennessee. Her Ring My Bell hit was originally intended to be about teenagers calling friends on the phone, but was reworked to give it a more 'adult' theme, culminating in a number-one hit for Anita. Basically her only hit. Her next best, Don't Drop My Love, only made it to number 87 in the US charts.
