Cliff Richard – The Young Ones (Leaping Ahead #74)

Leaping Ahead Project 2016 #74: 160314

[A song from 1962]

Released January 1962, ‘The Young Ones’ was the title song of the 1961 film of the same name. Cliff’s voice initially took it to No.1 for The Shadows but, on its 20th anniversary in 1982 the British sitcom, again of the same name, catapulted it to a new super-status. Cliff was the late Rik Mayall’s rock n roll hero, a fact he frequently made known during the series’ two-year but forever etched run, culminating in 1986 when ‘The Young Ones’ teamed up with Sir Cliff (sporting a totally ridiculous mullet) for a ‘Comic Relief’ reworking of Cliff’s 1959 hit ‘Living Doll’
