Abba - Denture Queen
Helen Reddy - I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore

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".

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.'
