  • Larry from B.c.What happened to the rest of the tunes that the Middle of the Road sang? Why are they "NOT" listed here? They where Hits in Europe!
  • Esskayess from Dallas, TxNever had a clue with this song was actually about, but such can be said of many songs from the 70s.
  • Steve from Whittier, CaWasn't the song about birds? Mac and Katie Kissoon actually have had quite the long career, and so have both MOR and LS.
  • Lisa from Milwaukee, Wi, WiIt's hard to get behind a song with such ridiculous lyrics. What does it mean, anyway?
  • Howard from St. Louis Park, MnI never heard Middle of the Road's version of Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep but I remember Mac and Katie Kissoon's well. It was the only hit for the brother-sister duo from Port-of-Spain Trinidad.
  • Mark from London, EnglandSadly, bassist and singer, Eric MacRedie, died on October 6th, 2007.
