30 day song challenge day 29: A song from your childhood

Sailor—Girls Girls Girls

We used to have this British Relay Wireless (BRW) television that had, if I remember correctly, four channels (BBC 1, BBC 2, STV and Border TV) but if you then pressed a button it would switch from TV to Radio and offered four channels there too (I can’t remember which ones, although BBC Radio 2 was probably one of them.

British Relay was a cable TV company, so the TV was plugged into the wall using a very particular socket with loads of pins. I remember being both excited and disappointed when we had to move to a conventional TV aerial because the signal wasn’t as good as cable and we dropped one of the ITV channels (STV, which meant no more Glen Michael’s Cartoon Cavalcade on a Sunday afternoon).

Sailor’s “Girls Girls Girls” is the first song I remember playing on the radio. It came out in early 1976.

Is it just me or does the song in places sound like The Muppet Show theme tune?
