Helen Ready really sucked bad. I didn't like Dion Warwick either.
Yeah, my mom bought us Helen Ready's "Greatest Hits" when we were kids.

We were also given Donny And Marie's "Deep Purple"

"Sea Cruise" was on an 8 track called, "Fonzie's Favorites"

"Torn Between Two Lovers" was another annoying song in 1977. lol.

Mom got an Elvis 8 track "From Elvis Presley Blvd" in 1976.

And from then on, I was hooked for life.

My dad had "Beatles Love Songs" and "Wings At The Speed Of Sound"

I think we had "Mandy" on 45rmp

Andy Gibb's "I Just Want To Your Everything" also.

The seventies were a lifetime ago. A whole different world.

<quoted text> ABBA were actually not bad. The two girls were very good looking. Fernando got played a lot on the radio. I liked We will rock you and some of Queens songs like fat bottom girls and Tie your Mother down. I can't stand the sappy stuff.
I don't like ABBA and Queen was the worst. They were overplayed!

But my choice for the sappiest song ever is "The Way We Were"

I still hate it.

I had to think of the name of the song but "All By Myself" was dreadful.

That was overplayed in the seventies also.

There has always been big hits that annoy people and get massive airplay.

And Bubba,you're right on the money,no artist or group with a large body of recorded work can score with EVERY song,that's impossible,but I think that OVERALL the great artists and groups,like Elvis and The Beatles and Rolling Stones and others were on target with most of their material,and that's why these artists are considered great,and I do like some of Paul Mccartney's music too,peace to you.

Still stupid, I see.

What do you think "best selling" means, DICK?

The album that sold the most.

Now, once again, because you're obviously too stupid to understand ... Elvis never had a best-selling album in any year.

For example (because you're just so stupid, and go off half cocked before offering your dumbass opinion) the best-selling album of, say, 1956, was Harry Belafonte's "Calypso".

Simple.

No idea, but "Elvis Presley" was the fifth-biggest selling album that year, 1956, behind Calypso, the My Fair Lady soundtrack, The King and I soundtrack and the Eddie Duchin Story soundtrack.

(And no, Rick, before you say it, the fact that "Elvis Presley" may have sold millions of copies since then does NOT make it the biggest seller of 1956).

Great comeback, Dick, as always. Like Gordo, you turn nasty when confronted by facts.

Oh, and my sources? Try Billboard for a start.

Try doing some research yourself before posting your nonsense, otherwise you'll keep making an arse of yourself like you did with "Kitty" Lester's version of Love Letters from "1945".

He also said Aloha From Hawaii was watched by over a billion people, but that doesn't make it true either, Patrick.

Thanks.

Yep in 1956 I was just a young hobo starting my career. Didn't have a best selling album but people were starting to notice that as a young drunk I could still sing.Never got to meet Elvis or Box Car Willie but that didn't stop me from going on to be Elmer Jackson the almost famous singing drunk.I once smoked a doobie with Willy Nelson and he told me to keep on truckin and don't look back.

In 1956 there weren't a billion people around. Especially not in America. Epic fail indeed.
