Wayne’s Music Sunday 8 June 2014.  Unforgettable Hits Of the 70s.  PART ONE

‘Rubber Bullets’             10cc …I remember in 1973 Some radio stations refused to play this because of the controversy over the British army using rubber bullets in its efforts to bring peace to troubled Northern Ireland. The band's protests that the song actually dealt with a riot in an American prison fell on deaf ears. 

‘For All We Know’                  Shirley Bassey with the love theme from the movie “Lovers And other Strangers” …

‘How Can You mend A broken Heart’                   The Bee Gees with the first US #1 song in 1971 …

‘I Don’t believe In If Anymore’          Roger Whittaker … The british singer/songwriter who was born in Kenya 78 years ago.

PART TWO

‘Don’t Pull Your Love’             Glen Campbell – a brilliant guitarist, star session player, temporary Beach Boy, television personality, strong singer , in demand duettist and Country idol, he has run the gamut of American Music and rarely faltered.

‘Won’t Somebody Dance With me’             Lynsey De Paul …the Ivor Novello awards were first presented in 1955, it was not until 1974 that one was claimed by a member of the fair sex. Lynsey de Paul was that woman, and this was the song that won it for her. 

‘If You Go Away’          Canadian singer/songwriter Terry Jacks with his version of a song in English based upon the French song "Ne Me Quitte Pas" (1959), written by Jacques Brel.

‘I Believe In Love’          Hot Chocolate one of Britain’s most popular bands with a least 1 hit song every year between 1970 and 1984 …

‘I Wonder Why’             one of my favourite cuts from Oasis … Peter Skellern, Mary Hopkin, Julian Lloyd Webber, Mitch Dalton, Bill Lovelady. 

‘Oh You pretty Thing’              Peter Noone with a David Bowie song that Noone released first in 1971  … David Bowie plays piano.

‘Whispering Grass’                  Don Estelle and Windsor Davies  - took this old song to #1 on The British Charts in 1975 …sing lofty.   

‘Crying, Laughing, Loving, Lying’      Olivia Newton John with her cover version of the London poet, singer, producer Labi Sifre’s song.                                            

‘yesterday When I was Young’           Glen Campbell

‘Vaya Con Dios’             Allan Millicent and Tom Nesbitt a couple of Northumberland miners who won the talent quest Opportunity Knocks in 1973 and had their week of glory on the British charts that year. 

‘Waterloo Sunset’           Ray Davies started writing this a few years before The Kinks recorded it. At first, it was called "Liverpool Sunset," but when The Beatles released "Penny Lane," he changed the words so it wouldn't look like a rip-off.

‘Stay With me’               Blue Mink  In the 5 years they were together they did fantastic songs, Madeline Bell & Roger Cook's voices were a perfect blend, 

‘Could You Ever Love Me Again’                Gary Weeks and Dave Beckett a Canadian duo with a killer tune from 1973
