On this day: At 12th July of 1986, Simply Red scored their first US No.1 single with 'Holding Back The Years'. Simply Red singer Mick Hucknall wrote the song when he was seventeen, while living at his father's house. The chorus did not come to him until many years later. Led by the vocalist Mick Hucknall, the English blue-eyed soul band Simply Red became international stars with their debut album, 'Picture Book.' On the hit ballad "Holding Back the Years," Hucknall proved that he could sing soulfully without affectation, while their cover of the Valentine Brothers' "Money's Too Tight (To Mention)" proved that they could do light funk capably. With each album, their fan base expanded, especially in the U.K.  The band was formed in 1984 by singer Mick "Red" Hucknall with three ex-members of Durutti Column - bassist Tony Bowers, drummer Chris Joyce and keyboardist/brass player Tim Kellett, plus guitarist Sylvan Richardson and keyboardist Fritz McIntyre. The group signed to Elektra Records and released 'Picture Book' (October 1985), which featured "Money's Too Tight (To Mention)," a Top 40 cover of a 1982 R&B chart single by the Valentine Brothers, and "Holding Back the Years," a Hucknall original that topped the U.S. charts. The song was nominated in the category of Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group With Vocals at the 29th Annual Grammy Awards. The single caused the album to go platinum, and made the group one of the major successes of 1986. The music video for the song was directed by Tony van den Ende and filmed in the English coastal town of Whitby. The famous scene where Hucknall watches the coastal view from his window can be seen on the cover of the single, in its music video and, for a brief time, in the music video of "If You Don't Know Me by Now". British actress Maggie O'Neill appears briefly in the video, as a teacher in a school. Keyboardist Fritz McIntyre plays the role of a one-man-band and the other band members play the role of the local cricket team who see Hucknall off on his journey. #SimplyRed   #MickHucknall #80sMusic   #Billboardcharts #PopRock   #BlueEyedSoul #SoftRock   #Music     #OS4L

" HOLDING BACK THE YEARS -SIMPLY RED " Holding back the years Thinking of the fear I've had for so long When somebody hears Listen to the fear that's gone Strangled by the wishes of pater Hoping for the arms of mater Get to me the sooner or later Holding back the years Chance for me to escape from all I've know Holding back the tears There's nothing here has grown I've wasted all my tears Wasted all those years Nothing had the chance to be good Nothing ever could, yeah I'll keep holding on I'll keep holding on I'll keep holding on I'll keep holding on So tight Well, I've wasted all my tears Wasted all of those years And nothing had the chance to be good 'Cause nothing ever could I'll keep holding on I'll keep holding on I'll keep holding on I'll keep holding on Holding Holding Holding I said, well, that's all I have today It's all I have to say

His voice is different, I admit, but these guys did have a few descent songs, this was probably their best. But I was very surprised when I saw it was a guy singing. LOL

FLASHBACK 1986: "Holding back the years. Thinking of the fear. I've had for so long. When somebody hears. Listen to the fear that's gone..." British group SIMPLY RED's signature song is "Holding Back The Years".  Frontman Mick Hucknall told how the song came out in a 1987 interview with the New York Times: ''I was 17 when I wrote the words to that song...At the time I was stuck in a house with my father and was longing to break away from my childhood and go live by myself. The chorus wasn't finished until many years later.'' Entertainment correspondent Hugh Davies gave more background in his November 2000 article in The Telegraph: "Born an only child in Denton, Manchester, Hucknall was raised by his father, Reg, a barber in Stockport, after his mother, Maureen, left home when he was three. The upheaval caused by his mother's departure was the inspiration for his poignant hit Holding Back The Years. He has said that it made him suspicious of relationships." Billboard HOT 100: #1 Album: Picture Book  Writers: Mick Hucknall and Neil Moss Grammy Nomination: Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals  #flashback1986   #simplyred   #holdingbacktheyears
