Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:21pm Uncle Michael:

So I'm watching this Britcom called "Scarborough" and it has a pretty '80s soundtrack that's rather cool. They'll do things like underscore a big scene with a big song, then cut to another scene and the same song will be coming out of someone's radio. The episode I watched tonight featured in one scene, at asmr level, a song that started nagging at me. It was at like 1/10th the level of the dialoge. Is that...yes, that's the Kinks song, "Days". Who's that singing...man, that's a familiar voice. Did Kirsty MacColl record "Days"? Why yes, she did.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Gaylord Fields:

@Uncle Michael: Any show that plays Kirsty MacColl is a well-produced show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm Uncle Michael:

'90s music too, obviously.
  8:23pm ashley morey:

What a surprise to hear our song coming out of the speakers! I’m on FaceTime with my mom and she got to hear it with us, haha! Loving all the selections. great vibes as always!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:24pm Uncle Michael:

It's a charming show. Not "Detectorists" brilliant, but good.

wonder if any group had more hits with more lead singers than the Spinners. I guess the Drifters are the only other contender I can think of. I guess the Beatles with 4 are in the running.

Hi, Corey!

The New Surfsiders!
Avatar 8:38pm Joe B:

Fleetwood Mac? guess it depends on your definition of a 'hit'. I wouldn't count them
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Gaylord Fields:

@Mariano: I would say just Michael and Jermaine were leads.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:38pm Uncle Michael:

How many times during one show can I take all of my clothes off?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:39pm Gaylord Fields:

@Matt Fiveash: The word "singer" is the catch.
Avatar 8:39pm Joe B:

thanks for the clarification Gaylord!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:40pm Mr. Pumpy:

CSNY...those fellas had a lot going on. Maybe not all hits, but it just came to mind.

Fair enough Joe.

Looking up that cool Teo Usuellli track, and the movie it's from: Alla Ricerca del Piacere. 3 of the greatest words in the English language--con Farley Granger!

Jefferson Airplane, perhaps -- though I think Gaylord is right with The Association.

Just saw Gaylord @9:05. Right, but what if one group charts 5 times with 4 singers, another 10 times with 3?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:12pm Gaylord Fields:

Drifters: Clyde McPhatter, Bill Pinkney, Ben E. King, Rudy Lewis, Charlie Thomas — am I missing anyone? I think David Baughan appeared on some b-sides.

Wrecking Crew, Funk Brothers -- now I'm cheating, right?

Do Cream Puff And The Shut Ups count? They were very local, but a big hit with everyone who saw them?

Duh — Johnny Moore for the Drifters!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:17pm mariano:

King Crimson, Deep Purple. Not sure about hits with each singer though.
  9:17pm Dean:

Okay, I think I got it. You're looking first for most hits, second for most lead vocalists? In my example, 10/3 would beat 5/4?
Avatar 9:19pm RobinSays:

Hello wonderful Gaylord! It's so funny; I was just reading about the Dadaists and "Blue Poppy" sounds very Dadaesque. I'm also enjoying some gouda cheese. I have a Dutch friend who is always annoyed when I mispronounce it. Doues gouda get a capital G?

@Ira: Thank you! Why do you have to know trig to post a comment on this here board? Three digits? C'MON
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:19pm Gaylord Fields:

@Dean: Joe came up with the game, asking about hits. So I guess if it's a tie for singers, then the number of songs would be the decider. I believe the winner by Joe's rules is the Drifters.

Regarding whether to capitalize the g, I’ve seen it both ways. I know I’m not being very helpful, but that’s what I got.

@Mr. Pumpy: You may be right about the Eagles. They may be the winner. Feel like counting? I certainly don't.

@ Giana, Gaylord. yep i HOW da, is how my friend used to correct me. She also often offered me black licorice -- really the only candy product I strongly dislike. @ Wendy thanx for your cheez wizdom :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Jinx:

Eagles were a better guess than anything i had, Mr. Pumpy. Henley, Meisner, Frey, and Walsh. Certainly worth consideration.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:29pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Gaylord...nah. That sounds like a lot of counting!

Joe Walsh had a bunch on his own and with James Gang. Not sure if they were #1s or anything...
  9:33pm CC:

I wonder if Timothy B Schmit and Jesse Ed Davis ever played together???
  9:34pm bigplanetnoise:

The Millennium could have a go, if only there were a hit. Should I still be thinking about this, Mrs. Cowsill?

I can also now sing in the Vienna Boys Choir, wink wink nudge nudge.

Avatar 9:38pm Joe B:

I think it was a Joe Walsh solo single but the Eagles version was an album cut? Daddy Garbage might know better than me

Avatar 9:39pm Joe B:

Eagles had hits with 4 singers - meisner, henley, frey, schmidt
  9:39pm Efrem:

@JakeGould is that across all of Bandcamp?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:40pm chresti:

Carmichael, the lowest pool temperature I can stand is 70.
Avatar 9:40pm JakeGould:

@Efrem: No. Only artists that have had 4 or more hits with 4 or more different lead singers.
  9:40pm CC:

My hope Is that nobody wants to screw anything up!!!
Avatar 9:42pm Joe B:

to recap - I asked this after the Spinners were played early in the show, since they had hits with 5 different lead singers, if any group had hits with more lead singers?
  9:42pm Tyler:

Believe it or not, I listened to this Susumu Yokota album this morning! My 2 year old picked it out!

thanks for the topic, Joe B. it's been fun.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:46pm Gaylord Fields:

Great topic, Joe! Thanks for introducing it!
  9:47pm Dean:

Clarity! Because Joe B. asked, "wonder if any group had more hits with more lead singers than the Spinners," I focused on both hits and singers. Obvs, you can't have fewer hits with more singers, but you can have more hits with fewer singers, which complicates matters. But you asked "if any group had hits with more lead singers," which controls for the number of hits.
  9:48pm gracegoldw:

sanding down some wood for an instrument i'm making with the girls. seems some good vibrations are channeled into the project.
Avatar 9:48pm Joe B:

so I guess Drifters and Beach Boys tied. Not sure what the final ruling on the Association was. And the Temptations could be counted as the winners if the partial leads or Richard Street, Damon Harris and Otis Williams are counted.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:49pm WR:

I submit for your consideration: The Swingle Singers
  9:49pm Carmichael:

So it’s looking like Dean was a statistician in a previous life.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Gaylord Fields:

@Joe B: Do not count John Stamos in your Beach Boys tally.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Mr. Pumpy:

@Joe B...so the hits had to be with the band...and with different singers, but only with the band? The Eagles is still up there, but I was thinking outside of the band too, but that seems like less of a challenge now, so I'm thinking that's not what you meant. I was barking up the wrong tree, me thinks! Same band...different singers, right?
  9:50pm Carmichael:

I’m making this sound like Bill Withers.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:50pm Mr. Pumpy:

Forgive the rambling nature...
Avatar 9:50pm Joe B:

Ha! I am counting Stamos in the list of on-stage drummers though so Beach Boys might even pass Spinal Tap
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:51pm Gaylord Fields:

@WR: No big hits.
  9:51pm Dean:

Carmichael: Half the time I was a statistician, another quarter of the time I was a librarian, and the remaining third of the time I was confused.
  9:51pm Carmichael:

Oh, just confirming this music made me take off MOST of my clothes.

If only The Mothers of Invention actually charted...they would be up there! Alas...

Moby Grape had some hits or hit-like endeavors, and five lead singers.
Avatar 9:52pm Joe B:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:52pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Sons of the Pioneers have been going since 1933. They must have had quite a few lead singers over the years, but perhaps not too many hits.

good vocalists are a dime a dozen..!.. if they write their own music that's a plus..!.you just got to have a good band to back them up!!!

New Kids on the Block had lots of hits with five different lead vocalists or combinations thereof: en.wikipedia.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm chresti:

Staple Singers?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:53pm Gaylord Fields:

Top 40 on Billboard is my standard definition of a US hit single (or its equivalent on another country's chart).
Avatar 9:53pm javakid:

Would the Wu Tang Clan figure in? There is a trove on leads - just matters how a "hit" is defined.
Avatar 9:54pm Joe B:

well if the temptations count, wu-tang would have to count
  9:55pm Dean:

(I also feel like we're bumping into a topic that long ago occupied a comment board, namely, bands that have drifted so far from their original personnel that they invoke the Sorites paradox.)
  9:56pm Dean:

"well if the temptations count, wu-tang would have to count"

That is freaky! I have a t-shirt that says that!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm mariano:

Thanks Gaylord! Thanks Ruth and the rest of the crew! Take care everyone!
  9:56pm P-90:

Nobody wants to address it but Uncle Michael is right: if you include big bands like Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington, it’s a different ball game.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 9:56pm Gaylord Fields:

Dean: The substantive part is coming out of the speakers. This is just the sidebar, presented all in fun, with no rancor whatever.
  9:56pm P-90:

Which is why we’re not including them, I guess
  9:56pm Dean:

No rancor implied!
