Had a former colleague who had a tic-like tendency to break into "Ariel" often, confusing pretty much everyone within earshot.

Jersey Al (Albert R. Broccoli), Wednesday, 10 October 2018 20:24 (one week ago) Permalink

i'm normally an automatic vote for "ariel," but "smoke from a distant fire" is such an earworm. if it had that extra touch of polish that hall & oates would have given it....

I think you're making some of these artists and songs up. Think I'll give this one a pass.

Zach Same (Tom D.), Wednesday, 10 October 2018 20:32 (one week ago) Permalink

I don't think I've ever seen Peter McCann, or at least not Peter McCann IN ACTION!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ailu5CdWgas

And I've never heard "Judy Mae."

I'm tempted to vote "Devil Woman."

Lots of junk on this one.

That David Geddes song is one of the worst popular songs in history.

Not their strongest volume. Smoke From A Distant Fire is only choice for me.

Yeah, this volume particularly poor. Only Pete McCann I know is the jazz guitarist.

Everyone under 50 only knows that Alice song from the Who The Fuck Is Alice version, but what always amused me about the lyrics is that in Australia people apparently move house in a limousine.

Siegbran, Thursday, 11 October 2018 16:00 (six days ago) Permalink

I'm guessing this Engelbert song doesn't find him jumping on the disco bandwagon.

Jeff W, Thursday, 11 October 2018 16:33 (six days ago) Permalink

That Englebert song is some kinda Grade A smarm.

I think I'm going with "Angel in Your Arms", but only because I remember Millie Jackson's version.

Seals & Townsend & Their Cast of Idiots. I got no vote here.

clemenza, Tuesday, 16 October 2018 02:47 (yesterday) Permalink

Didn't think I would, but ended up voting "Get Closer," which is by far the 3rd best of Seals & Crofts' 3 biggest hits.

I really like "Ariel" but I wouldn't want anyone to catch me listening to it.

So for twenty four years I’ve been totally wrong, about Alice.

Siegbran, Tuesday, 16 October 2018 06:05 (yesterday) Permalink

Now I’ve got to get uaed to knowing the truth about Alice.

Siegbran, Tuesday, 16 October 2018 06:06 (yesterday) Permalink

24 years just waiting for the chance for someone to explain me all about this British band.

Siegbran, Tuesday, 16 October 2018 06:15 (yesterday) Permalink

Either I have a trace memory of "Ariel" from I know not when or where (it didn't trouble the UK charts) or the hook sounds very much like some other song. The best I can come up with so far though is that it's the bastard child of The 4 Seasons "Sherry" and F.Mac's "Rhiannon".

Now for a Dean Friedman splurge on Spotify...

Jeff W, Tuesday, 16 October 2018 11:09 (yesterday) Permalink

His "Lucky Stars" is okay if cloying - prob could have been a hit in the right hands.

|Restore| |Restart| |Quit| (Doctor Casino), Tuesday, 16 October 2018 12:51 (yesterday) Permalink

We're really scraping the bottom of the 70s barrel here. I mean, there's schlock and then there's whatever "The Last Game Of The Season," "Judy Mae" and "Disco Duck" are.

Engles in the Outfield (cryptosicko), Tuesday, 16 October 2018 14:51 (yesterday) Permalink

The only one I know is "Disco Duck."
Fuck "Disco Duck."

I don't know if I'd ever heard the whole thing until today. How did Disney not sue?

Wait I wasn't mistaken - Alice *is* originally Australian, the Smokie version was a cover!

whoa!

Squeaky Fromage (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 16 October 2018 17:12 (yesterday) Permalink

hmm... original is pretty good! Seems like Smokie just kinda perfected it slightly

Chris Norman has one of my favorite singing voices tho, so I may be biased...hence why i would ever betray my Aus roots lol

The rhumba rhythm reminds me of "Third Rate Romance" by The Amazing Rhythm Aces. Or "Margaritaville." And yeah "Sherry."

kinda regretting not voting for "ariel" since SFADF didn't really need the help. friedman's delivery is dorky and occasionally feels forced-quirky and a lot of the lyrics are dumb but the chorus mostly nails genuine homemade low-budget love song. if it'd come out on an indie label in 1999 it'd be part of the dork prom canon.

For all its success, "Disco Duck" was shunned by radio stations where Dees was living in Memphis, including WMPS-AM, the station Dees worked for at the time. Station management forbade Dees from playing the song on his own show and rival stations in the city refused to play it for fear of promoting the competition. When Dees talked about (but did not play) the song on his show one morning, his boss fired him citing conflict of interest. After a brief mandatory hiatus, Dees was hired by station WHBQ-AM, WMPS's primary competition in Memphis.
