Well to be honest, Doc, it's simply just called 'Calypso'.  And now that you've said 'don't ask how I know it', I have to know!  Please share?  :)

Hi there !

# 4  Pushbike Song - now if it is UK then it must be Mungo Jerry  ;)

It was during a radio ban here in the early 70's and so the MJ version never made it here - we had a home grown version by the Mixtures instead !  :)

Just had a feeling you'd know that, Luke...!

In actual fact, it was The Mixtures who had the hit here*, but they did 'steal' 'In The Summertime' for the reason you gave above...

I think 'Yellow River' and 'Knock Knock Who's There' also suffered the same fate over your way...

(* and as you sort-of mentioned 'em in the same sentence, that's good enough for me...Karen - do the honours...!)

Hi CF;
I've got the one of 76-UK. "Love Really Hurts Without You" by Billy Ocean.
In the US it was the minor AT40 tune, but I liked it.

Hi! CF, I believe I've got the last answer about UK-72.
It should be "Could It Be Forever" by David Cassidy, isn't it?
