A little follow-up to Laurie's correct answer

from hollywood.com :

Cher's Milestones

[*] 1964 - Recorded first song, Ringo, I Love You, as Bonnie Jo Mason (produced by Phil Spector).

[*]1964 - Began performing with Sonny Bono as 'Caesar & Cleo'.

[*]1965 - Changed name to 'Sonny and Cher'; reached Top Ten with singles Baby Don't Go (8th) and I Got You Babe (Number One).

and

I thought they were reasonably successful in the U.S.

?Lindisfarne is dead- long live Lindisfarne!? (<) Can you hum a few bars, 55?

So it was Lindisfarne... :shades: I thought there were not folky enough on that picture but I was about to write down the whole list of UK groups from A to Z... :laughing:

Wow, OldFif, we all deserve an extra 5 points bonus for the effort... ::

I shouldn´t have gone to bed, I knew that one about Ringo (greedy graemlin here)... I also knew "All I want for Christmas is a Beatle"... by I have to google... :laughing:

I gotta go have a coffeee and I´ll be back see if I can beat Laurie... ;) :thumbsup: but I´m having things to to today...

Frank Sinatra

Buddy Holly

Tom Jones

Paul Anka

"was credited with writing twelve songs that became gold records, most of which he recorded.

However, Anka wrote a number of songs for others including My Way, Frank Sinatra's signature song.

He also wrote It Doesn't Matter Anymore released by Buddy Holly just before his death.

(And Paul Anka's performance was part of Buddy Holly & The Crickets Australian tour in 1957.)

Anka's She's A Lady was a million seller for Tom Jones."

NEW QUESTION

In the mid 80s a Scandinavian act had a Big Hit in the U.S., U.K., Australia (and I would think most of Europe) with a song that had been released TWICE before as a single unsuccessfully.

Can you please tell me the Performer/s AND the Song?
