Song of the day: Christie- Yellow River

Christie Yellow River

A song from 1970, which became a big hit in lots of countries. It charted at 1 in the UK and 23 in the US. Jeff Christie wrote it and gave it to the Tremeloes, who would record it in 1970. However, they had success with another song and decided to write their own songs. The producer therefore changed their vocals into those of Jeff Christie. The song was a huge hit in 1970. Many will ask where the Yellow River is located. The writer had the idea of a soldier returning from the Civil War in America, but at the time the Vietnam War was still going on, so many others interpreted it as a Vietnam soldier. Enjoy
