A weekly musical feature inspired by Desmond Carrington's 'The Music Goes Round'

'Wurlitzer 2300' 1959 Jukebox

This weeks theme is...People People Everywhere
Inspired by World Population Day (Thursday 11th July)
1. Multiplication by Bobby Darin

Listening to the lyrics, it was possibly a risky song for it's day!
'Multiplication' entered the chart on 12th December 1961 reaching Number 5

2. Thirteen Women (And Only One Man in Town) by Bill Haley and the Comets

For some men, this would be their idea of heaven...
'Thirteen Women (And Only One Man in Town)' was the B-side to '(We're Gonna) Rock Around the Clock' which first entered the chart on 17th December 1954 reaching Number 4, later reaching Number 1 in the following year.

3. Too Many People by Paul and Linda McCartney

With our current world population over 7 billion, is it time to say we've too many people?
'Too Many People' was the B-side to 'Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey' which entered the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart on 2nd August 1971 reaching Number 1

Happy listening!
