Song of the day: Roger Daltrey- Giving It All Away

In 1973, Roger Daltrey released his first solo single. Leo Sayer (who had not yet scored a hit) and David Courtney wrote the song. Leo Sayer later recorded the song for his own album. The first line of the song soon became a bit weird, as the Who had not paid money for the damage they caused in a hotel room. The song became Daltrey’s biggest solo hit in the UK, number 5. Enjoy

Song of the day: Chesney Hawkes- The One And Only

A summerhit from a movie today! In 1991, the movie Buddy’s Song was released. Though the movie was not a smashing success, the song which was in it was. It is written by Nik Kershaw and performed by Chesney Hawkes (who also was playing a role in the movie). In the UK, the song peaked at number one, where it stayed for five weeks. Later it would become clear that this song would be the one and only hit for Chesney Hawkes, so he ended up as a one hit wonder. A nice detail about the movie: it also features Roger Daltrey of the Who. Enjoy
