Songs That I Love #42 White & Torch - Parade

I discovered White and Torch on a Saturday evening variety show that was hosted by David Essex, and may have been called The David Essex Showcase? They sounded like the Walker Brothers for my generation and I couldn't get enough of them. They released 4 singles that I remember (I had 7" and 12" of them all) but never released an album.

The guy in the cap still performs fronting new band whilst I think the other guy is a successful songwriter (co-writer of Believe the hit for Cher)

Whilst looking for a video I found a cover of this by Rhydian who was an X Factor contestant some years back. Sometimes the Internet is a wonderful thing sadly tonight it has left me scared for life!
