In the beginning of the eighties, James Warren wrote a song for his band: The Korgis. It would become a hit single, with a number 18 in the US and a number 5 in the UK. It even was number one in some countries! It would be one of their biggest hits, and one which was a favourite to cover. Brian Davis, Yazz, the Army of Lovers, and the Dutch band Krezip, all recorded the song. I learned about the song when I heard the Krezip version, and only lately discovered the rest of the history!

The Korgis- Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime
Sometimes you have one sentence from a song, or a bit from a tune, sticking in your mind, but you can’t think of the artist…
That was the problem yesterday with this song. I kept hearing “The only way is up!”. Nothing more, and I thought: mmm… who was that?
Happily we have Google, so I found out that it was made by Yazz And The Plastic Population.
And it is a good song… sunny, happy, sunny and very nice to hear!
Enjoy The Only Way Is Up!
