Little Willy, The Man from Mecca


Sweet (also referred to as The Sweet) were a British rock band that rose to worldwide fame in the 1970s as a prominent glam rock act.

Sweet were formed in 1968 and achieved their first hit “Funny Funny” in 1971. During 1971 and 1972, their musical style followed a marked progression from┬áthe bubblegum pop┬ástyle of “Funny Funny” to a more hard rock style supplemented by a striking use of high-pitched backing vocals. The band achieved notable success in the UK charts, with thirteen Top 20 hits during the 1970s alone.

Everybody Wants To Rule The World


Tears For Fears was a big group growing up, especially as I got older and thought it was fun to relive the 1980s. Lorde, who I also have on vinyl, did cover this song as well for a soundtrack so I figured I’d separate this song out from the rest. If you’d like to check out her version, hop over to YouTube HERE and give a listen! If you’re only interested in the original, you can check out that music video HERE.
