The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 74

You've got the comment king Mr DVD to blame for this one. Last week's rockabilly hero Johnny Burnette had a son, Rocky, who had a hit in 1980 with this song- Tired Of Toein' The Line. I thought it only fair that I should share it with you. No download- you're probably not going to listen to this more than once.

DVD reckons he's the only person who bought this. It was a US hit so maybe Dickie was just the only person in Yorkshire who bought it. Have a good night y'all!

LOLZ, I remember this.

Reached a dizzy number 58 in November 1979 according to my dog-eared and coverless Guinness Book Of British Hit Singles (14th Edition).

This is a terrible song. Although I have heard (and indeed bought) worse.

Glad to open the memory juice sluice gates y'all! Catchy aint it. (As is chlamydia)

I just love that windy riff.

No 58 eh, davy. In today's hit parade terms, that would place it at number 2 for 14 weeks.

Top work SA.

Dickie (Yorkshire rockabilly correspondent).

No thank you Dickie.

I quite like the idea of having county based rockabilly correspondents. 'And now over to our Essex/Cumbria/Lincolnshire correspondent who has news of some local rockabilly action...'
