The 1973 single version of "Top of the World" is played in full in the opening of season 2 episode 1 of "Afterlife" which has just been put on Netflix. It's a nice treat and will get our duo out there even more.... As of 6pm UK time "Top of the World" is at #162 in Australia and #282 on iTunes. Gold Greatest Hits is at #41 in Australia and #82 in the UK. Let's keep an eye on the chart movement

Overnight and this morning "Top of the World" has been getting closer to the Top 100 and Gold has dipped in and out around the Top 50 in the UK and Australia

I heard "Only Yesterday" on Sirius XM Ch. 70 earlier this morning in the car and what a wonderful way to start my day! What a glorious and sophisticated single that one is, and no wonder it's one of my (if not all-time) favorites of the C's and also loved by so many of fans. I never grow tired of hearing this amazing recording, and in fact, it just hit me that we're about to celebrate this single's 45th anniversary of its pop chart peak in May 1975! Can you believe it and how time flies....it was "only yesterday" that.....

“Hurting Each Other” on Dick Clark’s Rock Roll and Remember show featured artists The Fifth Demention 102.7 Guernville, Ca. They were #9 on AT40 yesterday with “Sing”, for the week of 5/5/73. It had already peaked by then, sand station. Get the app.for free. The Wolf!!

On AT40 It’s Going To Take Some Time @ #25. He talked about Agnes saying Karen was a better baseball player than Richard. If there was ever a squabble with the neighborhood kids, she’d step in an protect him. He said it was kind of embarrassing, that she always got picked first when playing.
Fun little story Kacy Kasem told. 7/4/1972.

This wasn’t a song on the radio or anything but there was a category of ‘Famous Karens’ on the TV quiz show ‘Pointless’ this evening.

Out of five different ‘Famous Karens’, contestants had to guess who would be the least recognisable and the aim is to get a ‘pointless’ answer ie. out of the 100 people asked, no one able to identify them would score zero and win.

Karen scored a very respectable 76 (if I remember rightly, but it was definitely in the 70s) and so was a losing score in the game, but also that makes her a pretty famous Karen :)

92.9 from Bryn Mawr, PA is a great station.
They played " Sing" on my way into work.
I wonder if Karen's drum riffs at the end of the song were meticulously planned, or just random fills.
