Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  “Songs from/connected to television shows.

~~~~~~~~~~

My selections this week aren’t from television shows, but they are connected to one.

Originally a Movie of the Week entry, Starsky and Hutch aired from 1975-1979. The cop-drama paired the streetwise New Yorker, David Starsky (played by Paul Michael Glaser) with the more wholesome, Minnesota transplant, Ken “Hutch” Hutchinson (played by David Soul), as LAPD detectives fighting crime with never a hair out of place!

Riding high on the success of playing in the hit TV show, Soul returned to one of his early career choices as a singer. His debut, Don’t Give Up on Us was a worldwide smash, spending four weeks at No. 1 on the UK Singles Chart in January and February 1977, and a single week at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 1977. In addition, the song spent one week at No. 1 on the U.S. adult contemporary chart.

FUN FACTS:

  • Don’t Give Up on Us was rated No. 93 in VH1’s 100 Greatest One-Hit Wonders because, despite having more hits in the UK, Soul was never again able to reach the top forty in the US.
  • In September 2004, Soul became a British citizen, while retaining his U.S. citizenship.
  • The crime-fighting duo’s vehicle of choice was Starsky’s two-door Ford Gran Torino, which was bright red, with a large white vector stripe on both sides. Approximately four different cars were used for filming.
  • .Forty years after its television run Starsky and Hutch continues to enjoy world-wide success as a syndication favorite.
  • Soul hasn’t recorded since the 90s, but frequently acts on the British stage.

Enjoy!

One of Us cover

‘Leave, or die.’

Jess Dyer has won safety for her sister-in-law Ruth and proved her worth as the leader of her refugee community.

Sarah Evans has stood up to her parents and discovered who she can trust.

But the villagers still aren’t welcome. When the local population expresses its anger, can Jess keep everyone safe? And can she hold it together as Steward when someone she loves dies?

And how will Sarah react when her new fiancée Martin receives death threats, telling him he must leave her, and their village?

One Of Us is a gripping thriller about belonging and acceptance. It’s the third book in the Village trilogy, and the sequel to Sea Of Lies.

Rachel McCleanAuthor Bio
My name’s Rachel McLean and I write thrillers that make you think.

What does that mean?

In short, I want my stories to make your pulse race and your brain tick.

Do you often get through a thriller at breakneck pace but are left with little sense of what the book was really about? Do you sometimes read literary fiction but just wish something would damn well happen?

My books aim to fill that gap.

I’ll send you a weekly email with news about my writing research and progress, stories and bonus content for each book. And I’ll let you know when my books are on offer.
