Hits of 1975

What I'm Listening To

Another entry in my mini music challenge, here are my top ten hits of 1975...

All Around My Hat - Steeleye Span

Steeleye Span were like my first introduction to folk music with this song, and for that I will always love them dearly. It also gave the world Jed Thomas of The Fast Show's infamous All Around My A*** version which, as a 90s kid, was just about the funniest thing I had ever heard. :)


Would it even be a 70s hitlist without an ABBA track? It's really hard for me to pick favourites when it comes to ABBA because I love like 99.99% of their back catalogue. SOS is one of their very best though.

Blanket on the Ground - Billie Jo Spears

A country classic. <3 Billie Jo Spears scored a #6 UK hit with this one in 1975.

Rhinestone Cowboy - Glen Campbell

I know it's cheesy, but I love it anyway!

Jive Talkin' - Bee Gees

The band's so called comeback song, it also went on to feature on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.

Imagine - John Lennon

Imagine was recorded for the 1971 album and reached #6 when it was released as a UK single in 1975.

Bye, Bye, Baby (Baby Goodbye) - Bay City Rollers

Definitely one of their better tracks, probably because it was originally a 1965 hit for The Four Seasons...

Stand By Your Man - Tammy Wynette

Originally released in 1968, it only charted for the first time in the UK in 1975 when it peaked at #1.

No Woman, No Cry - Bob Marley and the Wailers

Until I looked the song up on Wikipedia for this blog post I thought this song was about life being easier without relationship problems. But apparently it's actually Jamaican patois for 'woman, don't cry'. Every day's a school day, huh!?

You Sexy Thing - Hot Chocolate

How can you not love it?

  1. I also made a video clip about the hits of the past generation, and made subtitles for them. Movavi's video converter helped me create them with which you can also convert your video to any format.

British Food

A/N: On a previous blog wrote a whole series of posts on British life, explained for American fiction writers. This week I'm reposting the entry explaining British cuisine... Britain is world renowned for its stodgy, uninspiring cuisine. (Which should explain the deep suspicion Britons have of most foreign cuisine, unless it's been suitably adapted for the British palette.) BBC sitcom Goodness Gracious Me explains it best via the 'going for an English' sketch - a play on the popular British past time of 'going for an Indian (i.e. curry)'. " What's the blandest thing on the menu? " asks one character, later encouraging another, " Just have something a little bland, huh? Waiter, what have you got that is not totally tasteless? " Because, the truth is that traditional British fare is far from a taste sensation for those who haven't been raised on the stuff. Still, read on, and you can judge for yourself...

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
