Far out! (And, no, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke.)
A very wonderful Monday to you. Today, we’ve got Boney M.‘s biggest US hit, “Rivers of Babylon,” which rose to #30 in 1978. The tune was a massive hit across much of Europe, and still rates as one of the best-selling singles of all-time in the UK.
“Yellow River is in my mind and in my eyes…” (Jeff Christie, 1970)
Christie’s “Yellow River” was a #1 smash in the UK, Ireland, Norway and Finland. The song, written and sung by British-born Jeff Christie, is a tale of a soldier returning home after the American Civil War.
“Yellow River” did pretty well in the States too, reaching a high of #23 on the Billboard “Hot 100.” Take a dip in the water (a cold-looking Thames) in the promo film below and see if it conjures up pleasurable memories.
