Thunderclap Newman.   “Don’t let it die”

Sam the Sham and the  Pharoahs    “Woolly Bully”

And the guy who was my neighbour for several years - fellow Dundonian  - Jim Kelly with Honeybus.  “Can’t let Maggie go”

Strangely, Mick Jagger has only had one well-known solo single hit: Dancing in The Streets with Bowie.
