‘Just a Little Misunderstanding’,

the only Top 40 success

for the ‘Contours’ on Tamla Motown,

but well received nevertheless.

 

Gallagher and Lyle’s ‘Heart on My Sleeve’

followed ‘I Wanna Stay With You’,

but after ‘Breakaway and ‘Every Little Teardrop,

from the charts, they withdrew.

 

‘Sorrow’ was twice a hit

in both 66 and 73.

The Merseys getting to number 4,

and later, David Bowie reaching number three.

 

Not ‘Purely By Co-incidence’,

‘Sad Sweet Dreamer’ at No.1.

This Sweet Sensation song told of heartache,

long after love had gone.

 

Spoilt for choice with Elton John;

so many of hits about heartache.

‘Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word’

probably the one keeping us awake.

 

With ‘Money Too Tight (To Mention’,

Simply Red, the lean years survived.

Until ‘Holding Back The Years, the (re- issue)

reached No.2, proving Mick had arrived.

 

Faron Young, always good for a time check,

‘It’s Four In The Morning’  sang he.

His well received hit of 72,

in the charts making number 3.

 

Although still unable to find her,

The Zombies had a hit with ‘She’s Not There’.

A song that finishes on a crescendo,

when they’ve seemingly looked everywhere?

 

The King of love songs, Marvin Gaye,

who with Kim Weston, proved ‘It Takes Two’.

Also gave us ‘Sexual Healing’,

for when tough times, we all live through.

 

And actor turned singer, David Soul,

took ‘Silver Lady’ to Number One.

After his first hit ‘Don’t Give Up On Us’

showed how love is never gone.

 

Phil Collins with ‘Against All Odds,

(Take a Look at me now)’ came in 84.

And ‘One More Night’ and ‘Two Hearts’,

gave us a ‘Another Day In Paradise’, for sure.

 

There’s ‘Truly’ only one Lionel Richie,

who had us ‘Dancing On The Ceiling’, ‘All night long’.

This great ‘Penny Lover’ Motown artist,

also made ‘Hello’ – a No.1 song.

 

‘The Man Who Sold The World’

took fabulous Lulu to number three,

whilst her film track ‘To Sir, With Love’,

showed how young hearts run free.

 

Sometimes love can last a moment.

Sometimes love can stay a while.

So when cupid’s arrow arrives,

best to enjoy it with a smile.

 

Sometimes love comes unexpectedly,

and takes one by surprise.

But the real love that lasts a lifetime,

is the one no heart denies.
