‘Son Of My Father’ – number one,

by Chicory Tip, in 72,

then much later Paul Hardcastle’s

‘Nineteen’, in 85 made it through.

 

Ruby Murray’s ‘Softly Softly’;

I can hear Granny singing now.

And with ‘Release Me’ and ‘The Last Waltz’,

Engelbert Humperdinck took a bow.

 

It’s Madness only one of their songs,

reached the desired top spot.

‘House Of Fun’ taking that accolade,

but 14 other top ten hits – real hot.

 

In 67, Procol Harum had us hooked,

with their ‘Whiter Shade Of Pale’,

and in 71 ‘Maggie May’ made sure,

Rod Stewart hot on the desired trail.

 

Those loyal Men at work from ‘Down Under’,

in 83, put the record straight.   

Then ‘Nothing’s Gonna Change My Love For You’,

sang America’s Glen Medeiros, in 88.

 

Kylie and Jason brought a gift,

‘Especially for you’, in 89,

as well as many separate number ones;

these two hit-makers still doing fine.

 

‘25 OR 6 TO 4’

in 70 made number 7,

but Chicago’s ‘If you leave me now’

6 years later reached, seventh heaven.

 

In 56, ‘Poor People Of Paris’

for Winifred Atwell came good,

and 63 saw ‘From Me To You’

start the Number one, Beatles flood.

 

All singers have a dream,

of making number one.

Sometimes it’s just the opening bar,

that in the memory lingers on.

 

Or a powerful, moving lyric,

that makes the heart swell,

ensuring that particular song,

all the others, will outsell.
