For no good reason other than to offer myself up for crucifixion on the cross of uncool.
Here are 5 cheesy songs I like from the seventies.
1. Alone Again Naturally by Gilbert O'Sullivan
Inspired gloomy lyrics that really scan to a fabulous plink plonky piano. He's on tour you know!
2.Windmills Of My Mind by Noel Harrison
OK I actually prefer Terry Hall's deadpan version. Makes no sense at all. Most excellent!
3. Hey Rock n'Roll by Showaddywaddy
Glam classic! I saw them live. Twice.
4. Where Do You Go To My Lovely by Peter Sarstedt
ah yes I do..ah no I don't...ahahaha - I loved songs that told stories. This tells a story. And includes small laughage.
5. Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head by B.J. Thomas or Sacha Distel.
I'm never gonna stop the rain by complaining. A philosophy worth singing about. Shame about the vocal gymnastics on the very last word. (on B.J's version)
