    Donna Loren, with guitarist Drew Saber and engineer Maurice Gainen, renovates and rejuvenates her signature song "It Only Hurts When I Cry" into a sultry, grown-up 21st century pop tune. Originally performed by Donna as a teenager in the 1965 AIP film "Beach Blanket Bingo" and again recorded for the LP of the same name, she has now reinterpreted the song as an adult, with style and intimacy; it sounds like a classic now. The song was written by Guy Hemric and Jerry Styner. It was arranged and produced by Donna Loren. Video was produced, directed and edited by Jeffrey Abelson in late July 2009. Be sure to see Donna in her original performance of "It Only Hurts When I Cry" from the classic AIP film "Beach Blanket Bingo": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9ZRvb...

    Donna Loren was the one-and-only "Dr Pepper Girl" from 1963 to 1968. She was signed to a long-term contract with the soft-drink company to sing all television and radio commercials, do all magazine and billboard advertising representing them in every capacity, sometimes sharing the spotlight with "American Bandstand's" Dick Clark. This relationship led to her touring in "Dick Clark's Caravan of Stars" with other popular acts like The Supremes and singing solos in the popular Beach Party films starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon. Later, she became the regular female vocalist on the popular 60's American live rock n roll TV show "Shindig" and she appeared in singing and acting roles in many iconic TV shows like "The Monkees", "Batman", "Gomer Pyle", "The Mothers-In-Law", "Red Skelton", "Milton Berle" and various game shows.
