On This Day 02/05/2017

On this day in 1970, Norman Greenbaum was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with his hit single 'Spirit In The Sky.'

Greenbaum said that the words to “Spirit in the Sky” took an estimated 15 minutes to write, which shows you just how talented he was as a songwriter.  

'Spirit In The Sky' was also a No.1 hit for Doctor and the Medics in 1986, and then again in 2003 with Gareth Gates.
