EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Getaway’ – Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames

What was the number one song in the UK on 21st July 1966?

British R&B band, Georgie Fame and the Blue Flames was number one with Getaway for 1 week.

I don’t believe I’ve ever heard this track before and I quite like it. It’s very catchy, with an impulsive foot-tapping beat. It is very 1960s R&B and I can see why it was so popular. Not the most memorable of songs, but still a great tune.

Lyrics

Gotta go, I hope you’re ready ’cause
Take a look outside
Don’t mind the weather girl
Let’s take a ride
Getaway, we’ll leave the city folk
They’ll have to say
Don’t have to pack a thing
Just get away
Gotta go
Getaway
Take a look at that deep blue sea
Don’t you think it looks great?
Not a cloud you can see in the sky
And the sun won’t wait
I believe that the time is right
Don’t ever slip away
Instead of dreaming about tomorrow
You can live today
If we get away
I know a little place
Not far from town
Gotta go, a kind of pretty place
Three up, two down
Getaway, I think if ever you
Decide to say
Well I know it’s gonna be because
We got away
Got away
Get away
Gotta go
Get away
Got away
Get away
Gotta go
Get away
Gotta go
I know a little place
Not far from town
Gotta go, a kind of pretty place
Three up, two down
Getaway, I think if ever you
Decide to say
Well I know it’s gonna be because
We got away
Got away
Yes, we got away good
Get away
Got away good
Gotta go
We went and got away good, gotta get away
Get away
Gotta got away
Got away
Gotta go, gotta get away
Get away
Go, get away and go
Gotta go
Gotta go, get away gotta get away and go
Get away
Go go go
Got away
Go, get away and go
Get away
