‘Mandy’ – the first Manilow hit came in 75,

and ‘Copacabana’ about Lola, also a hit for Barry.

In 79, The Police gave us ‘Roxanne’,

and in 80, Cliff Richard sang about ‘Carrie’.

 

In 70, came ‘Lola’, a favourite Kinks classic.

And in 85, ‘Kayleigh’ by Marillion, we loved too.

In 2006, Fratellis gave us ‘Henrietta’,

and ‘Sylvia’ by Focus in 73,  next in this queue.

 

Earlier, in 67 came ‘Georgy Girl’ by The Seekers.

and The Rolling Stones set ‘Ruby Tuesday’  free.

‘Yellow Submarine & Eleanor Rigby’ – a double sided hit

in 66,  saw The Beatles, at the top of the tree.

 

Also in 66, Wayne Fontana sang about ‘Pamela, Pamela’,

and in 86 The Damned gave us their version of ‘Eloise’.

In 87, ‘Sheila, take a bow’ riding high for The Smiths,

and in 75, ‘Angie Baby’ by Helen Reddy  sure did please.

 

The first two hits for Neil Diamond in the early 70’s

saw ‘Cracklin’ Rosie’ and ‘Sweet Caroline’, in the race.

And in 2008, he was still singing about the girls,

when he gave us ‘Pretty Amazing Grace’.

 

In 62, The Four Seasons had a hit with ‘Sherry’

and in 84, ‘Joanna’ arrived from Kool and The Gang.

In 90, came ‘Sally Cinnamon’ by The Stone Roses, and,

in 04, ‘Lola’s Theme’ by The Shapeshifters, to No.I sprang.

 

In 69 Amen Corner sang ‘Hello Suzie’. 

Also in 69, The Hollies sang ‘Sorry Suzanne’

In 59, Neil Sedaka released ‘Oh Carol’ –

the first of many hits, for this piano man.

 

In 93, Van Morrison gave us the infamous ‘Gloria’

And ‘Eleanor Put Your Boots On’, by Franz Ferdinand, in 06.

And now, like in 78, we thank our ‘Lucky Stars’ that –

Dean Friedman’s ‘Lydia’ came along, to end this girly mix.
