The Persian Carpet And The Welcome Mat




In late January of 1978, Yellow Dog entered the UK Top 50 with an utterly delightful song called "Just One More Night".  The band was led by American Kenny Young who had founded Fox of "S-S-S Single Bed" fame. The song is about a one night stand who likes her fling's home so much she'll make breakfast, wash the dishes, take out the garbage, do all the shopping and the mopping id she can stay just one more night. Yes, it's a novelty song ( with a false ending interrupted by a ringing telephone) but it is also catchy as hell. Peaking at UK #8, this timeless single did nothing in the United States.
