Double Initials GG
A deep dive into the hard drive, plenty of interesting suggestions and a little help from my friends meant that I finally managed to come up with three GG's to feature today.
Apart from the obvious one who of course was never going to appear there was the other obvious one with Lynchie being the first to suggest Gloria Gaynor. However I'm not posting the obvious one. Rather you are getting Honeybee an album track from her 1975 album Never Can Say Goodbye ( the title track of which might have been another obvious one).
George was the first of you to come up with the Go-Go's. Their website proclaims them as The most successful all female band of all time. That may be so but they don't appear on the shelves.I did find something on the hard drive though. The band who gave us Belinda Carlisle. Calm down there Jez
Marie cleverly ensured that one of her choices got a mention by forwarding me a track.It is the first I have heard from 50's Rockabilly artist the splendidly named Glen Glenn and it is rather good.
Like Rol I have a couple of solo covers by Glenn Gregory which I don't recall having listened to. I give his version of Wichita Lineman a listen. You may notice that it does not feature. That is because I've taken one for the team. Sacrilege is all that I will say
HH next week.Another pretty tricky one but I think I can come up with a couple
Oh and if you are in the vicinity of Aachen and you see a house with a lovely garden pop in and say hello to Dirk
Gloria Gaynor - Honeybee
The Go-Go's - The Whole World Lost Its Head
Glen Glenn - Everybody's Movin'
