Oh so much!

Billy Fury, Gerry & the Pacemakers, Manfred Mann, Dave Clark 5, The Hollies, Gene Pitney all had hits this year!

My last year of youth & freedom before I got married.

1964! What a year. <sigh>

EileenH,it's great how we remember music to certain times..was it Mike Post who did Rockford Files theme? I recall my Dad ,being a Boots man; he was mates with the pharmacist in Aberystwyth branch..that hot summer of '76 that was played...and Racing Cars, They shoot horses don't they was on the radio a lot.we spent that summer in Wales. Love Manfred Mann and Up the Junction LP is great!!

1958 -62 was my favourite time - Last years at school........13 years to 17 years old was when all I was interested in was the latest clothes, boys, music and jiving.........

Shirelles and Chiffons were both terrific girl groups who got a bit overshadowed by Motown

Apparently 1979 was the most diverse pop chart year. Funny late that year I was diggin' that Bo and Chuck album,and was reading Snakes & ladders by Dirk Bogarde.Buggles charted,punk was maturing as was disco,and the mods were back. Lena Martell I have to say made me ill as i downed Kronenburg in the Bench and Bar pub.I left for Holland then.

Now that was an oldie.  I seem to remember it from somewhere in my misspent youth.  Probably on six five special or something. :victory:
