This was number 3 in the charts that week though



I have never heard it before.

Great tune,for years had myself convinced the only good era of Rainbow was with Dio,I was so wrong.


Anyway,this lot recorded it before Rainbow. They didn't write it though,it was a Russ Ballard tune. Not sure if there was an earlier recording of it.

I just found out that the "Immaculate Conception" refers to the conception of Mary, not that of Jesus. I was brought up in a religious environment so it has come as quite a shock. How could I have got that wrong?

You could say I've been labouring under a misconception for 40 years.

Pumped up kicks is about the school shootings in America.



All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You'd better run, better run, out run my gun
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks
You'd better run, better run, faster than my bullet

The guy who sings "Turn Around" in Bonny Tyler's Total Eclipse of the Heart also did the voiceover for the Hungry Hungry Hippos ad.
