America’s Young Rascals

brought ‘Groovin’ to our shore;

this Top 10 hit of 67 followed by,

‘A Girl Like You’, we still adore.

 

And 1970 saw Bob & Marcia

riding high in the Top 5 Chart.

Their ‘Young, Gifted & Black’ –

instantly winning every heart.

 

In 75,  ahead of the game – David Bowie,

with ‘Young Americans’ in the Top 20,

and in 76, Candi Staton gave us

‘Young Hearts Run Free’ – a No 2 entry.

 

Our own Beatle – Paul McCartney

always guaranteed to bring us joy,

and in 97, the Top 20, found him

back in the charts with ‘Young Boy’.

 

‘She Drives Me Crazy’, in 89,

saw ‘Fine Young Cannibals at No.5,

and in the Top 40 of 97,

this song again, was to arrive.

 

With one of the largest fan clubs ever,

this Pop icon, has had a hit or two.

‘The Young Ones’ – just one of Cliff’s songs,

climbing to No.1 – was a song loved so true.

 

‘Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy,

(in 1970 – a song we’ll never forget),

came from U.S. group – The Tams, followed by

‘Hey Girl, Don’t Bother Me’ – a certain No.1 bet.

 

‘The Youngest Was The Most Loved’,

in 2006, for Morrissey, was doing fine,

and ‘Young Forever’ at No.10 was Jay Z

featuring Mr Hudson in 2009.

 

‘When You’re Young And In Love’- in 67,

a Marvelettes’s Top 20 hit, our hearts won.

and ‘My One Temptation’ singer – Mica Paris

sang about ‘Young Soul Rebels’ in 91.

 

In 82, ‘Young Guns (Go For It)

was at No.3 for Wham’s Andrew and George,

and ‘Last Christmas’ – their seasonal hit,

with a video, that simply is ‘gorge’.

 

And last in this Tribute to Youth,

comes lovely Will Young with hits from 02.

‘Anything Is Possible’ and ‘Evergreen’,

and ‘Light My Fire’, just to name a few.
