    The only one I can remember is from 1969 – Up on Cripple Creek by The Band.

    Have to go away and think about this one.

    You’re So Vain by Carly Simon? Included the lyric

    not bad guess but this is far more than one line

    the track sounds almost as if it was recorded at the races

    win and place are in the title

    The Intruders – Win, Place or Show, She’s a Winner

    Thanks for the clues Clivexxxx, wouldn’t have got it otherwise though do now vaguely recall it. Sounds as though it’s recorded at Hexham in a northwesterly gale

    Wasn’t that keen on the ‘philly’ sound back then, but it’s grown on me

    Smooooth

    Another thought Raymo is a cremation with Fire by Crazy World Of Arthur Brown playing in the background.

    Mum requested Sh-Boom (live could be a dream) by Crew Cuts for my Dad’s funeral, because it was the only song he knew, so it became their song.

    Eden Kane had a number 1 hit with Well I Ask You in 1961.

    Eden Kane had 2 brothers who had top ten hits, one reached number 1 but who was he, and what was his song? :mail:
