Where There’s Smokie…

Really getting into the music of Smokie recently (discovered them as a result of rediscovering this) especially like “Living Next Door to Alice” and “Lay Back in the Arms of Someone.” The cheesy 1970s Euro-television sets are over the top and I especially enjoy how Chris Norman treats lip-synching as an opportunity to clown. This version of “Alice” is particularly surreal.

Tangentially, Smokie led me back to Slade and Sweet. And then London Quireboys.

And yup, I’m aware of the alternate version of “Alice.”
