I don’t post here nearly often enough and I don’t intend for this blog to become an anthology of Sandra’s favorite bands, BUT lately over on Pandora I’ve been hearing a lot of the British ’70s glam-rock band Sweet and I’d forgotten how terrific they were. I hadn’t heard “Fox on the Run” in years when it played one afternoon while I was doing my makeup – took me right back to my Junior High School years. I also loved “Ballroom Blitz” back in the day. I don’t know how lead singer Brian Connolly made his voice do what it does, sounding so campy. When I hear it now I just think, “Do you know how gay this song sounds?” Love it.

One interesting thing I didn’t know about the band was that apparently they had mixed feelings about their early bubblegum-rock hits, most of which were written by their managers and songwriters Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn. Of course those are the songs that made them famous and the only ones I’m familiar with! It must have really sucked to be playing stuff that’s making it onto the charts without being totally into it. Groovy outfits and hairstyles though. If only I could get my guy hair to look like that I’d never wear a wig again!

  1. Just want to let you know you are still the best looking bondage model on the internet today. You at the 21st Century version of Jennifer West, Darla Crane, and Ashley Rene.

    Love your other stars especially MILF Jeanne, Jessica Kat, Dani Doll and the always sexy Betty Cho.

    Thank you for all these years of entertainment.

  2. I hate to admit it but Ballroom Blitz was one of the very first singles (remember singles?!) I ever bought. It’s still sitting in a rack in a cupboard, still in its original cover. Also bought the Desolation Boulevard album in cassette form when that came out in 1974(?)…alas it died on my car dashboard one summers day.


    1. Hi Melissa, That’s awesome that you still have that single! I sure do remember singles, and cassette tapes and eight tracks too, lol…Thanks for posting!
