Mellow Moods The Christmas Edition

Merry Christmas from The Smooth Operators! :-) We selected some mellow tracks that sound tasty during Christmas diner... ;-)

One of the tracks is ‘Wiggle that wotsit’ by The Hollies. They had over 30 charting singles on the UK Singles Chart and 22 on the Billboard Hot 100, with major hits on both sides of the Atlantic that included ‘He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother’, ‘Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress’ and ‘The Air That I Breathe’ (written by Albert Hammond). Singer Allan Clarke, who left the band for good (he did some solo projects through the years) in 1999, has a very distinctive voice and the three part harmony of the band is extraordinary. In recognition of their achievements, the Hollies were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. 'Wiggle that wotsit' reached #20 on the Dutch Top 40 in January 1977.
