Chart-topping band MIDDLE OF THE ROAD are still travelling the road of success. In the 70’s the group’s unique brand of music made to make you feel good brought them hit after hit all over the world. Who can forget the happy sounds of CHIRPY CHIRPY CHEEP CHEEP, TWEEDLE DEE TWEEDLE DUM, SOLEY SOLEY, SAMSON AND DELILAH, and SACRAMENTO. All these songs, and more, will be remembered with a smile on your face. They were the songs which gave MIDDLE OF THE ROAD their Top Ten Hits, with CHIRPY holding on the #1 spot for 16 weeks and remaining in the charts for an amazing 27 weeks.
