With ten consecutive Top Tens in 5 years,

The Bay City Rollers entered the UK charts in 71.

Their first hit reaching No.9 on the Bell label

was ‘Keep On Dancing’ – and so their magic begun.

 

Four more Top Ten hits followed in 74 –

at No.6 was ‘Remember (Sha-la-la)’, and ‘Shang-a-lang’ at No.2.

Next came ‘Summerlove Sensation’ at No.3,

and at No.4 – ‘All Of Me Loves All Of You’.

 

Three more Top Ten singles came in 75 –

the first two, both gold selling No.1 hits.

‘Bye Bye Baby’ and ‘Give A Little Love’ –

followed by ‘Money Honey’ – thrilling fans to bits.

 

In 76, still on the Bell label,

at No.4 was ‘Love Me Like I Love You’,

and  ‘I Only Wanna Be With You’,  also a No.4 

for this group, who no wrong could do.

 

In 77, now on the Arista label,

making No.16 was ‘It’s A Game’

and at No.34 ‘You Made Me Believe In Magic’,

so apt, as their last chart entry claim.

 

This Scottish Band loved by so many –

founded by brothers Alan & Derek Longmuir,

won every teenage heart in the 70s,

with their music so wonderfully pure.
