  1. Sweet

    Sweet were a British rock band that rose to worldwide fame in the 1970s as a prominent glam rock act, with their most prolific line-up: lead vocalist Brian Connolly, bass player Steve Priest, guitarist Andy Scott, and drummer Mick Tucker. Sweet were formed in 1967 and achieved their first hit "Funny Funny" in 1971 after teaming up with songwriters Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman and record producer Phil Wainman. During 1971 and 1972, their musical style followed a marked progression from the Archies-like bubblegum style of "Funny Funny" to a Who-influenced hard rock style supplemented by a striking use of high-pitched backing vocals. The band achieved notable success in the UK charts, with thirteen Top 20 hits during the 1970s alone, with "Block Buster!" topping the chart, followed by three consecutive number two hits in "Hell Raiser", "The Ballroom Blitz" and "Teenage Rampage". Their first self-written and produced single "Fox on the Run" also reached number two on the UK charts. These results were topped in West Germany and other countries on the European mainland, where the band was very popular. Like Slade the band turned to more Hard Rock style in their later singles like 1974's Turn It Down, but from 1976, the success started to decline! The Sweet had their last Top 10 hit in 1978 with "Love Is Like Oxygen". Connolly left the group in 1979 to start a solo career and the remaining members continued as a threesome until disbanding in 1981.
