The correct title of the song is "Angelo", but I can't remember the name of the band. I do have the lyrics and will post them if you need them.

I think that The Brotherhood of Man perpetrated this monstrosity back in the seventies. Dosn't this qualify as a worthy candidate for the "worst pop song ever" thread?

Personally, I think Neil Diamond has about seven of the ten worst pop songs of all time, but I'll agree that this one is pretty smarmy. Nonetheless, it's now an answered request.

Angelo
recorded by the Brotherhood of Man - songwriter unknown

Long ago,
High on a mountain in Mexico
Lived a young shepherd boy, Angelo
Who met a young girl and he loved her so

Rich was she,
Came from a very high family,
Angelo knew it could never be,
They ran away to their destiny

Running away together
Running away forever
Angelo
Running away from danger
Hiding from every stranger
Angelo
They knew it wasn't wrong
They found a love so strong
They took their lives at night
And in the morning light
They found them on the sand
They saw them lying there, hand-in-hand

Long ago,
High on a mountain in Mexico
Lived a young shepherd boy, Angelo
Who met a young girl and he loved her so

Running away together,
Running away forever,
Angelo
Running away from danger,
Hiding from every stranger,
Angelo
They knew it wasn't wrong
They found a love so strong
They took their lives at night
And in the morning light
They found them on the sand
They saw them lying there, hand-in-hand

Running away together,
Running away forever,
Angelo
Running away from danger,
Hiding from every stranger,
Angelo
They knew it wasn't wrong
They found a love so strong
They took their lives at night
And in the morning light
They found them on the sand
They saw them lying there, hand-in-hand

Running away together,
Running away forever,
Angelo
Hiding from every stranger,
Angelo
They knew it wasn't wrong
They found a love so strong
They took their lives at night
And in the morning light
They found them on the sand
They saw them lying there, hand-in-hand…

I have sent an e-mail to their management. (Assuming the group still exists.) When and if, I'll post who the author of the song was. I'd never heard it before. They certainly try to out Abba Abba on that cut--I heard a sound bite of 30 secs.

Alan, I have to disagree with you. I comes in waaaaaay ahead of

On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz
And the sky with no clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

Ive been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
cause there aint no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

After two days in the desert sun
My skin began to turn red
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a river bed
And the story it told of a river that flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead

You see Ive been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
cause there aint no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

After nine days I let the horse run free
cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
There was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with its life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love

You see Ive been through the desert on a horse with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you can remember your name
cause there aint no one for to give you no pain
La, la ...

Yes Bruce, from your other posts regarding this song, I can see that it gets you in a certain way... Now how does it shape up to textual anylysis. Let me see, there is the precise imagery of,
"There were plants and birds and rocks and things". Then there is the terse, resonant phrase, "fly with a buzz...". (Who would have thought it?) It moves on to the profound statement, "The heat was hot and the ground was dry..." That one really moved me, because I usually wear my wellies when I am in a desert...
Of course, it would be hard for any song to compete with the innate irony of "Angelo". The two ill starred lovers, who are, "Running away from danger," actually top themselves.
No doubt about it Bruce. What we have here are two pop masterpieces...

The song "Angelo" tells an impossible story. In Mexico the rich girl of high family would never have recognized his existence.

I agree with Alan. 'The heat was hot'- now that is hard to top!
Peace, who is responsible for that one?

A Horse With No Name
Written by Dewey Bunnell, ©1971

It was released by a group called "America" in 1972. It became a hit and was played 763 times a day on every radio station in Montreal where I was living at the time. While sitting one afternoon I lost it and unplugged the radio. I took it out back and hit it many times with a brick all the while using bad words in three languages. I did not get another radio for about a year. By then, the song wasn't playing anymore. It's the only song that ever made me react like that.

Amazon has only 4 copies of the "America" "Horse with No Name and Other Hits" cd on hand, but they assure shoppers that more are on the way! (65 used copies). Also a track on their "Complete Greatest Hits" cd, and the true collectors pressing, "Horse With No Name" cd is available used for $37 dollars Yew Ess.
Don't burn out your motor rushing out to get one!

Bingo.

'"Angelo" was written by Lee Sheriden and Martin Lee of Brotherhood of Man
together with their then manager Tony Hiller.
Best wishes
BROTHERHOOD OF MAN MANAGEMENT'

The folks there were kind enough to send the above.

It was the Barron Knights. Sadly I don't recall any more of their lyric but still consider theirs the definitive version of this song.
This was also the case with "Rivers of Babylon."

With rumanci's permission here is a bit of the Barron Knights version PM'd to me -

Long ago,outside a chip shop in Walthamstow
Was a young rocker called Greasy Joe
Who put on his helmet and said 'lets go' ???

He was keen
Off up the high street like Barry Sheene
Doing his best to look very mean
Till he met Ann on her new machine

Brrummminn away together
Brrummminn away in leather
Ann and Joe

They passed the Bloody Tower
At a hundred miles an hour
And they were so amazed
That Tower Bridge was raised
They raced up to the top
And found they couldn't stop
They flew right off the end
And landed in the Thames
Hand in hand.


They don't write 'em like that anymore:-)

Now, who can remeber the version they did of the Batchelors classic

"I don't want to go to work
On my bike in the rain
So keep buying all our records
and we won't clock in again..."

:D (tG)

Brilliant! Mudcat to the rescue again - you hev made my day!

The Barron Knights version of the Bachelors "I wouldn't trade you for the world" has been rattling round in my head for several days now, but I could only remember the the first 2 lines.

Luckily my wife does remember it (but nopt the words to it) - I feel a likelihood of us adding a few more verses, then performing it in our local folk club soon, just for a bit of fun!

Thanks again
