Middle of the Road Monday - Tony Christie


I've posted this track before , but it is so dam good it is worth repeating. It only got to 37 in the charts on its initial release , despite being the theme tune to the Protectors. I used to have it on a compilation tape when I lived in Scotland and the chorus is just made to be belted out whilst driving along the A1 at night on the way back to Edinburgh

  1. Have you heard Rinaldi Sings cover of this - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jeTZT-4LbOo - it's quite amazing - I think it was the b-side to one of his singles. Steve Rinaldi formerly played in the mod band The Moment who had some recordings on the wonderful Tangerine Records. Edward Ball from The Times /Television Personalities directed the video.
