Haha, nice humorous post, Andy. You can add Thimbuktu's blog called The Young Once to the list, i.e. "Cliff Richard - The Young Once".

North to Hadyai
Take me home, Cefiro

Thanks Victor. Yes, 'The Young Once' has always been the starting point when seniors get together to discuss humorous titles for 60s pop.

I have added it to the list.

Thanks Roger, 'North To Hadyai' replaces 'North To Alaska' and 'Take Me Home Cefiro' = 'Take Me Home Country Road.'
