BEFORE IT WAS A HIT SONG…
These songs are well known but you may not know about the earlier attempts to score a hit record with prior versions of the same song.
Living Next Door To Alice
British group Smokie is best remembered for the successful 70s hit "Living Next Door To Alice". The 1976 single made the Top 10 in the UK, Europe and Australia. In America, the disc peaked at #25. The prolific team of Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman wrote and produced the track.
Before Smokie's chart success, the Chinn & Chapman song had been recorded by Australian group New World 4 years earlier. Like the trio, Mike Chapman was born in Brisbane, Queensland in Northern Australia.
Each new song will be added to the spotify playlist named: ‘Before It Was A Hit Song’. You can check out the previous earlier / original versions of the hit songs you know and love.
