I usually remember Cliff Richard for his song entitled "Ocean Deep"!

Millenium Prayer is better than Bohemian Rhapsody.

It even edges Galway Girl by Ed Sheercunt.

It's music for people that are closer to death (either emotionally or physically) than I am, and I just have to remember that whenever I wonder why it's worshiped so heavily.

I think it is because he has a very good voice. The pop stars of the 1960's still endure because the generation of fans from those days are still around. The songs from those days are more melodic and easy to sing. That is why they continue to live on because people can sing their songs in karaoke sessions. All the singers in the 1960's have really good and mesmerizing voices.

Take his song "Congratulations". It came in second in the Eurovision song contest at that time but people still remember this song whereas no one remembers which song came in first in that year.

Not everyone's cup of tea, but there is no denying that he has put out some fantastic tunes.
I watched a video last week of him in Oz. He tells the audience that media say nasty things, and one topic in particular they used to hound him with was sell by dates and that he had past his, and says this was back in the 70's.
"Then this happened..."
and went right into Devil Woman. Thought that was outstanding.

Don't get me wrong, he's got a lot of scheidt in that back catalog, but he's playing Glasgow next year and I fancy going just to experience it.

I was a major Cliff fan before I discovered Queen in '86. Back in the early eighties i was in the fan club.
By then his "Golden Period" from 76-83 had gone and his music was pappy.
Ironically, it was his songs from "Time" that put me off buying any more of his albums!
I still play "I'm Nearly Famous" through "Silver" quite regularly.

Cliff Richard has the same dumb smile I’m all his promo photos. He sounds ashamed of his sexuality.
