Dobie Gray gave us ‘The In Crowd’

back in 1965.

and in 74, Bryan Ferry,

‘The In Crowd’ did revive.

 

In 67, Diana Ross & The Supremes

had a hit with ‘In and out of Love’,

whilst Peter, Paul & Mary in 70

were ‘Leavin on a Jet Plane’ high above.

 

Dusty’s hit of 65, ‘In The Middle of Nowhere’,

set the charts alight.

And another song that got our vote was

Phil Collins’ 81 hit,  ‘In The Air Tonight’.

 

In 86, ‘In Too Deep’ sang Genesis,  whilst in 71

‘Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep’ by Middle of the Road.

‘Outside’ in 98 came from George Michael,

and ‘Leave in Silence’ in 82, from Depeche Mode.

 

In 66  ‘Out of Time’ by Chris Farlowe,

for late voters, and many there’ll be.

This song also a hit for Blur

much later in 2003.

 

Mungo Jerry’s ‘In The Summertime’

in 70, was loved so much.

Before Daryl Hall & John Oates in 84,

gave us ‘Out of Touch’ .

 

72 saw Python Lee Jackson,

singing ‘In Broken Dreams’,

after Zager & Evans 69 hit

‘In The Year 25 25’, setting the scene.

 

‘Leave it’ sang Yes in 84

then ‘Leave Right Now’ by Will Young in 03.

‘In My Place’ sang Coldplay in 02,

‘In our Lifetime’ by Texas, in 99, did it for me.

 

‘Imagination’s ‘Body Talk and ‘In and out of Love’

perfect for this next verse.

And ‘Just an Illusion’ and ‘Changes’

if, ‘In the Heat of the Night’  fortunes reverse.

 

Blondie gave us ‘Union City Blues in 79, and

‘The Closest Thing to Crazy’ sang Katie Melua in 03.

Freddie Mercury’s ‘In My Defence’  a 92 hit

& ticks ‘In All The Right Places’ for Lisa Stansfield in 93.

 

‘I’d Rather Go Blind’ sang Chicken Shack,

with their top twenty hit of 69,

which was revived in 87 by Ruby Turner

who has a soulful voice, so divine.

 

‘Leave Before The Lights Come On’

sang The Arctic Monkeys in 06,

and JoJo’s 04 hit, ‘Leave (Get out)’

also in this final mix.

 

Did Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell

get it right with ‘Onion Song’?

and was ‘Why Can’t We Live Together?’

by Timmy Thomas – right – all day long?
