40 Year Itch: You've Blown It All Sky High

Jigsaw : Sky High

   Coventry's Jigsaw developed a following with poppy tunes and an explosive live show that often ended with the drummer setting his kit on fire. Songwriters Clive Scott and Des Dyer had already had a taste of the charts by writing "Who Do You Think You Are", hits for both Candlewick Green and Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods . "Sky High", which entered the pop charts at #88 on August 30, 1975,  was written for the opening credits of the martial arts thriller The Man From Hong Kong starring former James Bond actor George Lazenby. A worldwide hit, "Sky High" hit #1 in Japan, peaked at #3 in the US and made the UK Top 10.
