I believe The Stonk was a no. 1, back in 1991

Lady Gaga's "You & I" was in the UK Top 40, think it got to about number 23.

Living in A Box's "Blow The House Down" got to number 10 in the UK chart.

Holly Johnson's "Love Train" got to number 4 in the UK chart.

Robbie Williams had a UK number 1 with "Eternity"

Rock Therapy "Reaching Out" was in the top 40, me thinks.

Rock Aid Armenia "Smoke On The Water" also was a top 40.

Jeffrey Osborne's "Stay With Me Tonight" got to 18.




Joyful the sound

Yes he did, as he has done with lots of other artists, but I don't think that any of them got released as UK singles.

Also Brian recorded with Anita & UK singles were released, but I don't think any of them made the top 40 (I could be wrong though, so please correct me if any made the top 40???)
