Can somebody post the artist / track title please?

Who’s the Villain?
Just Discovered on your Twitter page-It was Cyril Smith.
News of Lionel Jeffries’ death at the time stopped me still in the livingroom for one moment as I just let it sink in that he was a complete one-off, never to be replaced.
Some omissions: Gerard Kelly, stalwart Scottish comic actor (‘Scotch n Wry’, ‘City Lights’, ‘The Comic Strip Presents: More Bad News’) Rue Mclanahan (stalwart of New-Cream-Era cross-gen-er ‘the Golden Girls’) and Ari Upp – Dad/brother/Sister confusing Top of the Pop-ster and lead singer of ‘The Slits’.
May they ever be repeated.
… news of Bobby Farrell – surely a demigod in the seventies UK TV pantheon – told that he passed away in Russia last night.
Shocking lack of Gerard Kelly. The amount of creamy stuff he was in, surely he deserves some recognition.
Thanks for including Leslie Nielsen in your tribute — POLICE SQUAD! has always been one of the true landmarks in Smart Silliness. And all my best to Sally Decker up in Statesville Prison . . .
