Rock Revival's Classic Trax (1973): Ballroom Blitz The Sweet

This has got to be one of the best rock songs ever, no joke,
brillient !!!!

"Ballroom Blitz" was written by Glam song-writing team Nicky Chinn and Mike Chapman in 1973,going to straight tonumber 1 in Australia 2 in the UK

The song itself was written about the Grand Hall of the Palace Theatre in Kilmarnock, Scotland, after the band were forced off stage by a barrage of bottles.

Not only is it a great song but has been the victim of some equally great covers: Tia Carrere in Wayne's World ! The Damned ! Krokus ! Nina Hagen !

Who else would you want !

Enjoy !

Oh what the hell, here's Tia Carrere

here's Krokus, maybe better than the original ?

Nina Hagen anyone
