40 Year Itch : Your Love Comes in Showers

Tavares : Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel

On July 11, 1976 Tavares leapt from #39 to #23 on the UK Charts as their disco single "Heaven Must Be Missing an Angel" climbed to its eventual UK #4 peak. The single stalled at #15 on the US charts but hit #1 on the US dance floors and in the Netherlands. 

The curiously titled Roussos Phenomenon EP was the #1 single in the UK, thanks to "Forever and Ever", a song that shared its title with another 1976 UK #1 hit by Midge Ure led Slik.


  1. Demis Roussos. I remember hearing this daily on Terry Wogan's morning show on Radio 2 bck in the day. Haven't heard it in eons, but can pretty much still recall every note.

    1. Just might be the least wretched single he ever released . And that's as much as I'm willing to concede.
