Lets Call It Quits by Slade
Noody Holder with his glam rock group with one of the lesser hits in the 1970s. This song was actually written by Noddy and Jim Lea and appeared on the album Nobody’s Fools. The single was the last top twenty hit of the 1970s, as Slade’s popularity was dropping. Mainly as they were touring in the U.S. and they were missed from European TV.
Rain by Status Quo
The group had already been going since the 1960s and are still going in the 2000s. This song came from the album called Blue For You and in the UK the album got to No. 1. The band member Rick Parfitt actually wrote the song.
It Should Have Been Me by Yvonne Fair
Yvonne was born in 1942 with the name Flora Yvonne Colman in Virginia U.S. Yvonne is partially responsible for James Brown huge song I Got You (I Feel Good) and in the 1970s she was with Tamla Motown too. Yvonne died at the age of 51 in 1994.
Dat by Pluto Shervington
Born in Jamaica back in 1950 Paul had four studio albums out in the 1970s and two singles. Only one charted in the top twenty and it was Dat on the Trojan label. The song tells a story of a man fighting religion by enjoying the taste of pork.
Convoy by C.W. McCall
William Dales Fries was born in 1928 who later became responsible for a TV advertising campaign in the 1970s featuring a fictional trucker called C.W. McCall which led to some minor chart hits in the U.S.
This song continued in that vein with the huge international fad of CB radio spreading. The CB radios allowed truckers to stay in touch with other truckers and also to keep clear of those bears (police). The song was so successful that a couple of years later it was turned in to a film starring Kris Krisstofferson.
I Love To Love (But My Baby Loves To Dance) by Tina Charles
Born in 1954 as Tina Hokins in London and becoming a backing singer in the 1970s Tina had appeared on many hit records like Make Me Smile (Come Up And See Me) and she supplied the vocals for 5000 volts. This would be her first top twenty single in the 1970s. She would have three in total.
