At the time CCCC it was the longest song ever to reach the top spot, which, I suppose, is some minor claim to fame. She had this very affected vocal style and I think she really fancied herself, thought she was a cut above every other singer in the charts and the media feted her because she seemed so NICE and NORMAL. The formula was exactly the same, an MOR classic, this time You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’, with Telly’s sultry vocals and a Mantovi-type orchestral strings backing. As a musical actor this probably wasn’t a bad idea but such performance props often result in a certain type of music. I always thought this was a very rude record about anal sex – it’s all there in the lyrics “That ain’t the way to do it” – “Oh yes it is!

Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep stayed at the top spot for 5 whole weeks being replaced by the monumental and game changing Get It On by T. But the great British Telly public had had quite enough of this type of opportunism and it reached a high of 47.Well, it’s irritatingly memorable, it has very straightforward lyrics ( Leonard Cohen was not involved I’m assured), it has a chorus that burrows into your psyche and an utterly weird vocal that suggests someone with adenoidal problems, sung in a quasi-American accent that really grates.

Initially, the lead singer of Sweet Sensation, Marcel King, was supposed to do the vocal but reportedly couldn’t get to grips with the song, leaving the door open for producer David Parton to do his own version. It’s a strange thing about the 60s and 70s charts that often there could be two, sometimes more than two, versions of the same song in the charts simultaneously and it was all about who was getting the most plays on radio or maybe who was the most well known as to who had the bigge hit. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.Had that version not been around maybe Waldo De Los Rios might have made it to Numero Uno and he might not have committed suicide in 1977, poor soul. The contest was won that year by the lovely Severine (female singers were only known by their first names in those days) representing Monaco with the excellent Un Banc, Un Arbre, Une Rue. The three-TV channel decades of the 60s and 70s meant that if an artist became popular thanks to the show they were in, they became VERY big indeed and such was the case with Telly Savalas and his hit show, Kojak. Condition - This item is in Excellent condition or better (unless it says otherwise in the above description). Given that David Parton took the song, ripped the soul, the guts, the sophistication and the personal element from it qualifies it, in my book anyway, as a completely rubbish hit or at least an utterly awful version of a classic song.

Now it would be unfair to describe Telly’s effort, Bread’s If, as one of the worst covers of all time, but it is pretty awful. Sarney was born in Liverpool and started out as a folk/comedy performer in the Liverpool trio The Crabtrees in the mid-1960s, with her brother Hal and Derek Marsden. The Arsenal squad which won the double in 1971 released ‘ Good Old Arsenal‘ with words by a certain Jimmy Hill to the tune of ‘ Rule Brittania.They may be rubbish and inexplicably successful but still hold their place in the pantheon of strange but memorable hits. His CV becomes a little more interesting in a bizarre way, when in 1959 he produced the UK’s entry to the Eurovision Song Contest, Sing Little Birdie by Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson. It was a particularly middle of the road (lower case) chart to be fair, but then again, the charts mostly were in those days.

Mind you, they still are) came up with the gossamer-thin idea of creating a comedy record through the use of clips from other records. Naughty Naughty Naughty" was engineered by Chris Tsangarides at Morgan Studios in Willesden, North London. It sounded oddly similar to Mouldy Old Dough and I was also vaguely aware that Lieutenant Pigeon was linked to Stavely Makepeace. This lugubrious equine annual bunfight even bumped Monty Python’s Flying Circus from the schedules and became a running gag for years on the programme. Without the cache of being a ‘novelty hit’, it might have been viewed as an interesting example of left-field pop.Tony Blackburn even manages to take the piss out of his Scottish accent, which was standard for the time.
