Some of these make me wretch. However, I have many too many of my own that are worse. Neil Diamond, for example. Ugh.

Barbara,

No time to do a list now but while "Green Eyed Lady" was co-written by Jerry Corbetta the hit was by Sugarloaf. He was a member of that band.

I used to play this for my wife & at the request of my daughter.

I know it's a little picky but...

Fusion 45 said...

That was fun.

I posted my list on my site: Fusion 45

Fabulous! Quite why you are furtive about the likes of Argent, Blondie and The Monkees, I'm not really sure - they are all OK in my book. BUT...Oh God, I swear if I ever meet David Essex I shall strangle him with my bare hands. How that keening noise ever got mistaken for a voice is one of life's great mysteries, but I suppose someone has to love him.
Otherwise a fine effort - don't you feel better now?
