It's funny that I should be reading this post today, Friday here in sunny
Illinois. I keep threatening my coworkers with my "bad-song" cd collection.
And today I decided to make them cry with "Gary Glitter Greatest Hits," by
The first song is "Rock and Roll Part Two." And the inside jacket has this
"In the summer of 1972, a rather odd record rose to the top reaches of
the British and American charts. Musically, its chief distinguishing
factors were a clipped drum figure augmented by handclaps and a lumbering
riff that sounded like a mass of guitars and saxes mixed in a cement
churn, or the roar of a dyspeptic stegosaurus, or an industrial-strength
piledriver in dire need of lubrication. The lyrics, in their entirety,
amounted to the following: 'Hey!' (Sometimes the 'heys' were repeated.
At times four were strung together. Occasionally a dizzying sequence
of eight chanted 'heys' was achieved.)"
I remember this song from grade school, and tooling around in Junior High
to track meets. Finally in 1984 I heard the song on the radio again and
I asked a supervisor (who was up on the 60's-70's rock music) what the name
of the song and who the artist was. And so from there I kept that info in
the back of my brain until 1991 when I found this particular cd in a
bargain-bin. And now you, Bob, asked the question that caused all this stuff
to be written to the screen. ;-) I was even thinking last night that of
putting a part of the song onto my answering machine.
