The penny-whistle, the plinky-plinky piano, the growling repetitive vocals, the melody that just parks itself in your head. But it did get in the charts and the guy responsible was Argentinian composer and arranger Waldo De Los Rios who demonstrated a lucrative ability to create easy listening versions of orchestral classics.

Mind you, she was married to legendary Scottish football pundit Chick Young for 6 years which was as glamorous as it got post- MOTR. Knocking on the door of the top spot like a Jehovah’s Witness though was Dawn’s Knock Three Times, while Clodagh Rodger’s execrable Eurovision entry Jack in the Box was hanging about like a shit in an aircon system and Clive Dunn‘s Grandad was drifting out the charts with its collar turned up and its hat turned down. His decent roles dried up a bit in the early 70s and TV was beginning to dominate people’s viewing habits. And Georgy Girl (1966), from the very interesting 60s film of the same name, was a great tune which got to No. It may not be the greatest song ever released and it may still be an inexplicable hit and irritating to many but I still have a soft spot for it and I defy anyone to start humming the tune in their head and it to not still be there hours, or even days, later.Firstly, its melody was gossamer-thin to the point of being undetectable, secondly it sounded exactly like his previous other hits and, most heinously, it perpetuated a number of myths.

The Arsenal squad which won the double in 1971 released ‘ Good Old Arsenal‘ with words by a certain Jimmy Hill to the tune of ‘ Rule Brittania. His CV becomes a little more interesting in a bizarre way, when in 1959 he produced the UK’s entry to the Eurovision Song Contest, Sing Little Birdie by Pearl Carr and Teddy Johnson. To be honest I could have chosen pretty much either of their 8 top twenty hits between 1965 and 1967 but I picked this one mainly because it’s so DULL and it’s got a NICE melody, it sounds exactly like all their other hits and it’s a complete DIRGE! Had that version not been around maybe Waldo De Los Rios might have made it to Numero Uno and he might not have committed suicide in 1977, poor soul. Joy Sarney (born Florence Joy Crabtree; 1944) is an English female pop singer, best known for the single "Naughty Naughty Naughty" in 1977.

C. run out to at Boundary Park, it is banger racing’s theme tune, it was even used in New Zealand to advertise their national lottery and Charlie Watts named a racehorse after it.

So this isn’t so much a rubbish song, how could you describe anything by Mozart as rubbish, it’s really a completely inexplicable hit. You picked up the phone, dialled a particular number and a female voice would say, ‘ This is the Dial-A-Disc Service.A follow-up single, "Angling for a Kiss", was released in November 1977, but failed to make the charts, and Sarney remains a one-hit wonder.

Released in 1976 which was a pretty dire time for music (see above) it was his third release in a row which made it into the top 20, starting off very poorly with Reggae Like It Used Be (how did it used to be? He’s straining so much to hit the notes Stevie Wonder hits so effortlessly, it looks like he might to shit himself. Secondly, the artist’s management will see it as a good way of getting the artist ‘out there’ and cementing his/her popularity and thirdly, if the record is successful there could be a whole series of lucrative hits and maybe even an album!Although not a hit when it was initially released it was picked up, oddly, and used as a theme tune for a Belgian current affairs TV programme. A few DJs in the UK also began to play it and it was Noel Edmonds, of all people, who gave it a regular push on his radio show. I cannot, for the life of me, however, understand who would have bought this pile of reindeer shit for their record collection. He got away with it in 1975 because he was riding an irresistible popularity wave, but anyone listening to it now and knowing nothing of Kojak would wonder what the hell was going on. Now this character reportedly ‘discovered’ Helen Shapiro and wrote two of her first hits, Don’t Treat Me Like A Child, (which nowadays sounds a bit dodgy given she was only 14), and the formulaic Walking Back To Happiness, which got to No 1 and for which he received an Ivor Novello award in 1961.
