Hello Pop Pickers. We’ve had the Queen of Soul and it was a well deserved title. But if we can’t have the Queen I’m certain that my first pick today should have been no less than a Duchess. She was a star who outshone others.
Now a single from 1975 that could move even the hardest heart. A talented group but it’s the lead singer that makes them rise above many others.
This selection is just because this is a Happy Making Song, there are just so many to choose from in this singer’s repertoire.
For this one we’re going back to 1956 one of the best groups of the time who have survived musically until now because of their popularity. We need a new generation to keep them going.
And to finish it’s a quick trip to 1968 to one of the most enduring groups ever. Sadly there’s just one member left now. but I daresay he’s still writing. So many stars have sung their records and yet they haven’t missed a decade without a hit until now. There was a disco period that didn’t sit well with me but the disco generation loved them. This is one of their fairly early songs which I think was their attempt at the Beatles/psychedelia but back then I loved it.
Have a Fantastic Weekend and I send Hugs to help heal the World.
