  • Worst hit record of the 1970s...?

    Open topic...

    I recently heard, 'Minuetto Allegretto' by the Wombles and it depressed me for several days...

      "Muskrat Love" comes to mind first, but I'm sure I can think of others, given time.

            Clive's Dunn's Grandad is an opus of musical genius in comparison

                Where do you go to my lovely.
                Enthusiastic vagueness passes for scholarship in the twilight world of the disc-jockey.

                  ..Erm - that particular atrocity from Peter Sarstedt is actually from 1969. Pussycat is a definite candidate and is actually still on the core for BBC Local Radio!!

                  John Miles and "Music" gets my vote.

                    There can only be one winner. Laurie Lingo & The Dipsticks - 'Convoy G.B.' aka The Hairy Fuckflake.

                    Couldn't help Googling 'Muskrat Love'. Undeniably terrible.

                      What? His music of the future and music of the past?

                      'To be without my music would be impossible to do' always struck me as grammatically dodgy but without it his music definitely wouldn't have pulled him through in any sort of rhyming way.

                      Who WAS he anyway? Kinda came and went super fast like Black did. Similar hair too. Wonder if they were ONE AND THE SAME!

                      Someone needs to compile an LP of dreadful one- hot wonders but market it like a serious Numero Group Archiving jobbie with a detailed booklet explaining every teeny tiny detail about them and their one hit. I'd buy it.

                        Miles was big on the continent and has spent most of the last 25 years backing Tina Turner. "Music" is still popular with Ken Bruce although I suspect it's more to do with the length of the track. He has a little collection of long songs he relies on presumably as piss/fag break records?

                        I know you'd buy that comp...... cos there's not much you wouldn't take a punt on, is there - you big musical tart, you!!!

                          John introduces a "do" operator in order to complete the conditional and give an "active" sense to his musiclessness, rather than positing it as a mere stative situation.

                          I like "Music". It is up there with Barry's " I write the songs" and Adrian Gurvitz's "Gonna Write A classic" in the gallery of songwriters songs about songs.

                          I also like Driver 67, An instrumental vesion would sound a bit like one of Sivuca´s folkier tunes, only without any swing or groove whatsoever.

                          Meanwhile, as punk raged, check out what this Dutch fucker was up to.

                            A pedant writes: John Miles actually had at least TWO hits and is therefore ineligible for the one-hit wonder tag. He was a seasoned veteran by the time of "Music" and had cut loads of so-so 45s for the Orange label (and a pretty good one in "One Minute Every Hour" which was a Vanda/Young composition).

                            Now - if anyone DARES to suggest Lieutenant Pigeon in this thread...I will be very cross.

                              Probably a bit unfair to nominate one football song over any others, but these Forest c*nts and their dirge blighted my childhood. .
