"Pearl's a Singer" is a song made famous by the British singer Elkie Brooks, as taken from her 1977 album, Two Days Away. It was first recorded by its co-writers Ralph Dino and John Sembello in 1974.
The song is a ballad, telling the story of a failed singer who still dreams of the success she might have had.
Brooks' cover version was her debut chart single. It reached #8 in the UK Singles Chart in spring 1977. It remained her highest placing in that chart until "No More the Fool" reached #5, early in 1987.
