Spring weather and “I’ve got the music in me”

Posted By on March 22, 2014

kikideemotownWith the improved weather (70 degrees in Cincinnati on Friday) and spring smell in the air, its feels like it is past due for some music on the blog. Here’s a mystery tune for the day, which of course from the 1970s, but this is one hit that I’m sure everyone has heard. The first hint may not give the tune away:

  1. The female of the duet was the first British artist to sign with MoTown. Her name was Pauline Matthews which probably will not give away the 1976 chart-topper … but her previous 1975 recording might?.
  2. Both singers of the duet were born in 1947 and from England, as were many musicians making their mark in both the U.S. and Britain in the late 60’s and 70’s.
  3. His name was Reginald Dwight which for music buffs may be a giveaway … if not, I’m betting you’ll know who they are by the first few notes.
  Spring is here, so Mother Nature “D G B M H” 🙂

    Cute post! Great song! Kiki Dee. What else did she do?

    • Thanks for the comment Sharon. Well she recorded from the 60s thru 70s … and after a decade off, started again in the 90s and even recorded in 2013. Obviously you know her biggest hit with Elton John, but The Kiki Dee Band song in the title of this post was pretty well known too.
