UK Top 10 : March 14, 1976

Brotherhood of Man : Save Your Kisses for Me

  Well I can't really go through the entire year of 1976 without dredging up the biggest UK hit of them all can I ? By the time the 1976 Eurovision Song Contest rolled around in April, Brotherhood of Man's catchy but god-awful "Save Your Kisses For Me" was already the #1 hit in England. They must have been favorites to win, but Martin, Nicky, Lee and Sandra needed something to clinch victory from the likes of the Swiss entry "Djambo, Djambo" and Germany's "Sing Sang Song".

  And that's where the cheesiest choreography ever televised comes into play. There is no better explanation for the necessity of punk music that what you see here: 

1. Brotherhood of Man : Save Your Kisses for Me
2. Barry White : You See the Trouble With Me
4. John Miles : Music

6. Gallagher and Lyle : I Wanna Stay With You 
7. Elton John : Pinball Wizard

8. The Beatles : Yesterday
9. Marmalade : Falling Apart at the Seams
10. Glitter Band : People Like You, People Like Me
