Goodbye Music for the Weekend

This week it’s two songs called “Goodbye” as I’ve decided to stop doing the ‘songs for the weekend’ except for the occasional tribute. I started in Oct 2015 so almost two years. Thanks for listening.

First up it’s Mary Hopkin who 6 top forty hits including 4 top tens and 1 number 1 in the late 60s and early 70s. Hopkin won the talent show “Opportunity Knocks” and her first single “Those Were The Days” hit number one for a massive 6 weeks in 1968. I always liked Mary Hopkin, she had such a beautiful pure voice.

“Goodbye” by Mary Hopkin reached number 2 in 1969. The song was written by Paul McCartney and stopped from reaching the number 1 spot by “Get Back” by The Beatles!

Finally the Spice Girls who had a phenomenal 11 top 40 hits including 10 top tens and 9 number 1s.

“Goodbye” by The Spice Girls, the Christmas number 1 in 1998. It was the first song without the vocals of Geri Halliwell.
