‘On a little street in Singapore’

saw Manhattan Transfer in the charts.

But ‘Chanson D’amour’ made number one

and stole our very hearts.

 

‘Albatros’, a certain number one

by Fleetwood Mac – we knew.

Though ‘Man of the world’ came close,

when reaching number two.

 

John Denver’s ‘Annie’s Song’

sent us to a ‘feel good’ heaven.

But Boston gave us ‘More than a feeling’

three years later in seventy seven.

 

‘If you leave me now’ by Chicago;

another hit about heartache.

Proving, if proof be needed;

the group a ‘Hard habit to break’.

 

With ‘Memphis Tennessee’,

Chuck Berry let us know,

that he was here to stay,

though insisted ‘No particular place to go’.

 

Dinah Washington, well remembered

for her ‘September in the rain’.

And Gerard Kenny, released in 78

New York, New York – his penned refrain.

 

‘How am I supposed to live without you?’

put Michael Bolton on the map.

Long after Bob and Earl,

gave us the ‘Harlem Shuffle’ hand-clap.

 

The ‘Last train to Clarksville’

had the Monkees on the run,

heading towards a ‘Pleasant Valley Sunday’:

This group guaranteed us fun.

 

Towns and Cities of the World,

each, in their own way, unique.

People and places brought together,

when adventure one does seek.

 

Each country brings a memory,

(no matter whether sun or snow;)

from the warmth of passing strangers,

who for a time, we got to know.

 

Written by Harriet Blackbury
