. . . and then was cruelly pounded into irrelevance by so-called "classic rock radio" stations. 😠
Animals is a way better album
This was a big deal as they hadn't released a single in the UK since 1968.
I was 10 at the time this was number 1 in the charts on holiday in Matla..first ever time abroad & I realised how global great music is...This was constantly on the radio as well as the POLICE with message in a bottle & every Maltese person was singing along to it knowing every word..
Shouldn't the last number one single of the seventies happen in December 1980?
My top live show ever.
Also Rodney Bingenheimer’s birthday, Alan Freed’s birthday, Dave Clark’s birthday And the anniversary of the opening of Rodney’s English disco!

And we conveniently forgot Midge Ure, co-composer of the song, producer, etc
Best Christmas music from Motown!
Quite possibly the worst Xmas song ever recorded,that changed nothing in my view,problems still exist today!!!
One of the best songs ever! Even if it’s not Christmas.
And Jody Watley
And why would they need to know, since majority of them are non Christians? This song, for all its good intentions, is very much sort of white man’s burden.
Loved the sentiment, hate the song the lyrics just always seemed quite ridiculous.
And there won't be snow in Africa this Christmas time,no shit
“There won’t be snow in Africa this Christmas” was a strange line to me as a kid. 🤷🏼♀️
Still the best version of this song.
Seems like just yesterday. ....
Do they know it's Christmas time no they don't they haven't got a bloody television...
I remember when this song came out
"well tonight, thank God it's them...instead of you...." - Bono
Great song-even Gavin and Stacey love it
No they don't know it's Christmas if they're not Christians. Dumb song.
What about Midge Ure ?
And to this day the same problems still exsist 😢
Posted about an hour ago... Ahead of my time.
Too bad all the money was stolen and used to buy weapons.

I have some prime Sinatra and Jilly Rizzo stories!
Though I often said less than kind things about Frank on the air, he once called me in Palm Springs and requested his latest record. When I said we hadn't received it yet he sent his friend Jillo to the station with a copy. I never joked about him on the air again.
Proud to share my birthday with this legend .... x
Nice voice but ultimately a one dimensional recording artist.
Fly me to the moon
Sharing our Birthday with a legend Rachel Davie Jackie Rushton xxx
Old blue eyes.
I was listening to Paul Harvey the Radio commentator one day and he was telling the story about a baby that was born not breathing and his Grandmother held him under cold water in the kitchen sink which I guess shocked him and got his breathing going. He said and that little babies name was Frank Sinatra and now you know the rest of the story........
Meaner than a Junkyard dog,Hope channel five reshow the Main event 1974 again
Andrea Arnold Zoey shares her birthday with a legend!
Happy belated birthday to the “Chairman of the Board”...there will never be another!
The CHAIRMAN of the BOARD!
A leader of civil rights activism for black musicians in the 40’s & 50’s. His most important contribution.
He is simply one of the greatest singers of all time. Surrounded by professional musicians and arrangers who gave Frank the background for his songs to sing....
Love me some Francis Albert...
My great aunt ran into him in vegas a long time ago they bumped into each other and she yelled at him until she realized who he was
Okay, who else can sing 🤗✌️.
Frank died of bladder cancer, get your facts right! He was the very best of the best and is deeply missed amongst all ages! RIP and Happy Birthday Chairman of the Board!! <3 xxx
it's also Connie Francis too...
His smooth voice and his swagger....my mother loves frank Sinatra

Cats with conscience (and attitude)
A very sad day eh Neil and Simon?
One for Andrea Wealleans to appreciate.
Poor Rik and Bruce !
I've never forgiven Weller for breaking up The Jam.
And you still haven't forgiven him Paul Brown 😂xx
I liked The Jam far better then his band The Style Council 😉
They played their last gig together on Rob Tyner’s Birthday.
I remember it well!
They played their last gig on Rob Tyner’s Birthday.
Best band ever.
I saw them in the early 70 on a college party in London! 😄

Think there was more to this than anyone told at the time.
Tragic one of the greatest singers
One of my all time favorite music artist <3
Best of the Best
Very sad tragic and strange end to a brilliant soul singer
I love Sam Cooke but what was that all about? Wow...That's messed up.
Morgan C. 😳
R. I. P.
One of my favorite voices
Too much to drink that night fought with multiple people.
He was murdered and set up
I don’t believe it.
Never knew that.
Sam was such an incredible talent. So sad he left us so soon. RIP Sam. We still miss you.
I remember reading about his death in our local news paper. The article said that he was shot in a phone booth.
A famous female singer went to his funeral....she said his head was barely attached to his body(Neck was so damaged).I cant remember which singer it was but I think it was Wikipedia where I read it. So yes there was more to the story than anyone told.Beyond sad.Also someone had told him before that day he should have a body guard and yes he should have had one.He was very smart and was fixing to start his own record company/business.Sounds like it was a set up, to me.From what I read also,The girl he was with left the motel room and took alot of his clothes with her...that's why he was dressed like he was.
The song "A Change is going to Come" was released after he died.

Well, sounds like the mans rights were violated when they attempted to detain him based on suspicions that he didnt have a drivers license.
