It surprises me to see this was a #1 hit, I figured probably a Top 10 because it still gets a lot of airplay but a #1 in the age of Disco? It was written by Larry E. Williams who was a roadie for Neil Diamond. Diamond wasn’t interested in it and then Johnny Rivers passed on it- the the great fortune of The Bellamy Brothers. They weren’t quite a one -hit wonder- in 1979 they had a single just crack the Top 40- at #39 “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me”- a #1 country song. They have had a lot more success on the country singles charts than on the Pop chart.
