“Don't let me hear you say life's taking you nowhere, angel”
The Golden Years 40th anniversary 7" picture disc (released worldwide last Friday the 13th), is at #1 on the official UK chart.
This fulfils a 40-year-old wish from November 1975, when the UK press advert for Golden Years (hot on the heels of recent chart success for Fame and Space Oddity), made the following bold prediction:
October No. 1...Fame...USA
November No. 1...Space Oddity...UK
December No. 1...Golden Years...WORLDWIDE
In the event, Golden Years didn’t make it to #1, instead peaking at #8 in the UK.
