Definitely in the mood for Slade

CHRISTMAS always puts me in the mood for some SLADE.
I'll listen as I drive to a shortened day at work.

For those keeping score, here is a list of Slade's No. 1 UK hits:

October 1971 -- "Coz I Luv You"

June 1972 -- "Take Me Bak 'Ome"
September 1972 -- "Mama Weer All Crazee Now"
March 1973 -- "Cum On Feel The Noize"
June 1973 -- "Skweeze Me Pleeze Me"
December 1973 -- "Merry Xmas Everybody"

A few songs just missed the top spot, landing at No. 2, including:

November 1972 -- "Gudbuy T'Jane"

October 1973 -- "My Friend Stan"
October 1974 -- "Far Far Away"
November 1983 -- "My Oh My"

I have always thought Slade's secret weapon was bassist/keyboardist/violinist JIM LEA -- the writer of some of Britain's greatest melodies.

Yes sir, I am definitely in the mood for some Slade!
