British glam and glitter boys THE SWEET were a non-stop hit machine
between 1968 and 1977, thanks to productive songwriter duo Nicky Chinn
and Mike Chapman who also composed for Smokie, Suzy Quatro, Mud and
among others.

One of their Number Ones in the UK was BLOCKBUSTER,
that topped the charts this day, 50 years ago.

A blockbuster it was.

“Does anyone know the way, did we hear someone say
(We just haven’t got a clue what to do)
Does anyone know the way, there’s got to be a way
To blockbuster”

Frontman Brian Connolly passed away in 1997 due to kidney failure,
liver failure and repeated heart attacks. He was only 51 years old. R.I.P.
