“Medley: Intro: Venus-Sugar Sugar….” by Stars On 45
(#2 last week) The record that kicked off the “medley” mini-craze of the eearly 80s. Dutch studio group fronted by Jaap Eggermont, formerly of Golden Earring (“Radar Love”). I always found it strange how a medley of mainly Beatles covers would start with the Archies & Shocking blue, but apparently it was edited from a much longer 12-inch single, which had many other artists included. Because of legalities, every song used had to be listed as part of the title, making this the longest title ever to chart.
