You’re So Vain by Carly Simon? Included the lyric
Well, I hear you went up to Saratoga

not bad guess but this is far more than one line
the track sounds almost as if it was recorded at the races

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

I read through this thread and there re some good old songs mentioned.
I used to be a DJ in my youth and my musical taste is eclectic to say the least.
Here are my ten and I could have put twenty in but hey ho
GENO Dexys Midnight Runners
BOOGIE WONDERLAND Earth Wind and Fire
FIVE YEARS David Bowie
GOING UNDERGROUND The Jam
ANGEL OF THE MORNING Juice Newton
WATERFRONT (live Version) Simple Minds
KILLING OF GEORGIE Rod Stewart
RAT TRAP Boomtown Rats
FUNKING FOR JAMAICA Tom Browne
Like I say I could have put ten more in easily.
And for fun I keep saying if they are going to bury me I want Going Underground to be played LOLSeptember 1, 2019 at 19:50 #1452590

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?September 2, 2019 at 12:22 #1452709
Well done Neil
Easy one that Peter Sarstedt and Where Do You Go To My Lovely
