GUEST,Rossey Lyr Req: Sally Sunshine (Geoff Stevens, Les Reed) (14) RE: Lyr Req: Sally Sunshine (Geoff Stevens, Les Reed) 20 Aug 19

The song 'Sally Sunshine' was also popular in South Africa, but they changed some of the lyrics about "the skin being kind of dark" for obvious racially sensitive reasons.   It all seems lyrically well meaning but trite and outmoded in today's world (a bit like 'melting pot). Miki Antony had the best known version of the song in the UK, available on 'Youtube'. My father recorded an appalling version of it back in the early 70's, with very odd accordion backing on an LP - a bit of a racket. The song has mostly lived on and been adapted as a football chant as it does have one heck of a sing a long chorus! The great Les Reed passed away just a few months back.
