REVIEWS
Average points: 3.97 (Reviews: 37)
****
Von Album "Dedication" war dieser song fast einer Hit.... (Tipparade in Juli 1976 in Holland).
****
War nie ein BCR-Fan, obwohl ich damals im anfälligen Alter war. Dieser Titel ist mir aber ganz angenehm in Erinnerung geblieben.
****
ziemlich gut, würde sogar fast eine 5 geben!
***
...weniger...
*****
Bei diesem fetzigen, gradlinig arrangierten Song mussten sogar die notorischen BCR-Hasser (... derer gab es viele ...) zumindest still zugeben, dass die 5 Schotten (... oder zumindest deren Produzenten ...) durchaus gewisse soundmässige Qualitäten besassen.
****
Nach den eher nervigen Hits "Money Honey" und "Saturday Night" eine recht angenehme Nummer.

Hat mich damals schon mitgerissen ... BCR mal rockig. Einer der besseren Songs, nicht ganz so poppig.
***
Fuer die Bay Sued Tirolers gibt es nicht mehr als eine 3. Die nervten mich schon damals.
*
doof, langweilig.. völlig blasser Song mit nichts drin und nichts dran..
****
Ein Song der in UK gar nicht als Single veröffentlicht wurde, aber in den USA die gleichnamige Albumzusammenstellung promotete. Die Single erreichte im Juni 1976 # 28 in den USA und # 13 in D.
***
nicht so toll
***
Ø
****
Durchschnittliche Single für B.C.R Verhältnisse....
**
gute 2
****
gar nicht so schlecht
****
Manchmal ist die Gitarre so schräg, dass man an Punk denken könnte. Nein, natürlich nicht. Das ist Glamrock-Epigonentum. At it's best!
***
das übliche, was nicht so schlecht wäre, wird spätestens im refrain zerstört..
****
ein typischer "Glamrock"-Song der damaligen Zeit, auf diesem Gebiet gab es aber bessere Gruppen (u. a. The Sweet), 4 minus
****
Nette Nummer von denen - ach ja..............
****
Ganz nette gefällige Nummer.
*****
Gar nicht übel.
****
▒ Prima plaatje van de Schotse Teenybopper Bubblegum popgroep de "Bay City Rollers" uit eind juni 1976 !!! Jammer dat het plaatje na 7 weken bleef steken op # 4 van de NL Tip 30 ☺!!!
****
... gut ...
****
Doch, der ist ganz sympathisch.
******
Mehr als sympatisch... :-)
******
... klar doch, einer ihrer besten Titel ...

****
beschwingtes, tanzbares Stück aus Mitte der 70er – 3.5 (aufgerundet)...
******
"Geile Zeit !"-Oder!
****
... auch nett ...
***
Der tut eigentlich nur so als ob er rockt. ;) Ziemlich dünnes Liedchen, da hatten sie wahrlich bessere Songs am Start.
***
Die Gruppe um Les McKeown war schon okay, mehr aber auch nicht. Als 80er-Jahre-Solosänger hat mir die Musik des Mr. McKeown besser gefallen.
*****
5 stars

CDN: #6, 1976
USA: #28, 1976
*****
So klang das damals und das finde ich heute noch gut.
******
klasse Song, damals wie heute
***
Strophe geht, aber dann kommt wieder so ein 0815 Refrain der klingt wie von ner Schülerband, die Songs von denen waren schon ziemlich einfach gestrickt!
****
Gefälliger, im Vergleich zu ihren meisten großen Hits eher zurückhaltender Titel.
****
Ein Lied aus der Mittsiebzigern, welches schon eher meinen Geschmack trifft. Auf der B-Seite der Titel: "Shanghai´d In Love".
