KPOO etc week of 1/14/13
« on: January 17, 2013, 08:38:10 AM »
2NG's retro chart today is 1979, so I'll take a pass on whatever Renee's offering us.

tuned in early -- just in time for "Where Do You Go To My Lovely" -- *swoon*!

OMFG: Rachel Sweet's delicious cover of "B-A-B-Y" was at #38 that week. Fab. Yoo. Luss.

WTF: Barry M's "Could It Be Magic" very belatedly hits the UK chart.

WTF2: The Shadows doing an instrumental version of "Don't Cry For Me Argentina"?? Oh those wacky Brits.

instrumentals rule: Theme from Superman: The Movie.

Anne Murray with the baker's love song, "You Kneeded Me"

Shalimar take it to da bank, yo.

Sally Oldfield (Mike's sister!) with "Mirrors". NTM and rather Kate Bush-y

also NTM: forgotten UK disco, Mankind doing a dance version of the theme from Doctor Who (!)

oy: one of those awful retro-'50s things the Brits were so fond of back then, a remake of "Rama-lama-ding-dong"

Oh my: Barry White's sublime cover of "Just the Way You Are"; followed by Leo Sayer doing Buddy Holly's "Raining in My Heart"

dat's whut AHM talkin' 'bout: "One Nation Under a Groove", y'all.

wow: Hot Chocolate's "I'll Put You Together Again" -- amazing this did nothing in the US. Some boyband should cover it. Seriously.

AAAACK: Xmas leftovers... Boney M "Mary's Boy Child".

EJ's gorgeous piano instrumental "Song For Guy" -- another huge UK hit that did nothing over here.

#2: Mr Dury gets out his rhythm stick, nudgenudge winkwink.
