In South Africa “Mammy Blue” was recorded by the session group Charisma featuring vocalists Paddy Powell and Stevie Vann: produced by Graeme Beggs, this version spent twelve weeks at #1, making it the second longest running South African #1 hit. [wikipedia]
This song, which has had numerous versions internationally (a sad indictment on humanity), was ubiquitous on the SA airwaves in 1972, when I was a conscript in the SA Defence force. It was played incessantly on portable radios across military barracks all over the country, to the point of near torture. It remains my most abhorred song. And I heard it again today.
Do you have song that leaves a particularly bad taste in the mouth like that?
