And you can tell everybody....

This picture has nothing to do with this entry...
Toodling around the web whilst I wait for Hazel to wake up from her nap, I found this website. What's your #1 hit?

Mine was "The Best of My Love" by the Emotions on the US chart and "Float On" by The Floaters on the UK chart. (August 26, 1977) I tried to look up Hazel's, but it said her information was unavailiable. Poor kid.


U.S.--"Tragedy" by the BeeGees

U.K--"I Will Survive" by Gloria Gaynor

Funny how those two titles almost seem to belong together...

Same on both charts for me...

"I'm a Believer" by The Monkees

I always have had a soft spot in my heart for Michael Nesmith. Go fig.

Jive Talkin’ - The Bee Gees

Oh, Yessssss.

"Love Hangover," Diana Ross
"Combine Harvester", The Wurzels?!?

I'll have to see if I can't hear me some of that farmin' music... anyone heard of these so-called Wurzels?

US: "Me & Mrs. Jones" by Billy Paul - an R&B song about having an affair with a married woman.

UK: "My Ding-a-Ling" by Chuck Berry - a novelty song about masturbation.


ok folks:
The Wurzels are still touring and have quite a following, it turns out. This "Combine Harvester" song apparently is a parody of Melanie's "Brand New Key"...guess she is easy to parody, eh? Anyhoo, the Wurzels have their own "language," and there is currently a movement to get them back on top of the charts (they topped them in '76). The combine song is about a randy man trying to "get my hands on her... "land." I'm trying to get my hands on an audio file to listen to it, but no luck yet...

I got:

Tonight’s The Night (Gonna Be Alright) - Rod Stewart

Under The Moon Of Love - Showaddywaddy ---which makes 'Tubthumping' seem like a wannabe band/album name.

My Sweet Lord by George Harrison for the U.S. chart and I Hear You Knockin' by Dave Edmunds in the U.K.

US: Help! - Beatles
UK: (I can't get no) Satisfaction - Stones.

US: Oh Pretty Woman - Roy Orbison

UK: I’m Into Something Good - Herman’s Hermits
