EVERY UK NUMBER ONE SONG: ‘Silence is Golden’ – The Tremeloes

What was the number one song in the UK on 18th May 1967?

British band The Tremeloes, were number one for 3 weeks with Silence is Golden.

Originally recorded by American group The Four Seasons, The Tremeloes cover is a soundalike version, so that you clearly hear echoes of the Four Seasons within it. The harmonies are perfectly delivered and its recording sound is perfectly polished. The lyrics have a haunting quality to them, but mainly it is a tune I mumble to myself once my child has gone off to school or gone off to bed. Silence is indeed golden.

Lyrics

Oh don’t it hurt deep inside
To see someone do something to her
Oh don’t it pain to see someone cry
How especially if that someone is her
Silence is golden
But my eyes still see
Silence is golden, golden
But my eyes still see
Talking is cheap people follow like sheep
Even though there is no where to go
How could she tell he deceived her so well
Pity she’ll be the last one to know
Silence is golden
But my eyes still see
Silence is golden, golden
But my eyes still see
How many times will she fall for his lines
Should I tell her or should I be cool
And if I tried I know she’d say I lied
Mind your business don’t hurt her you fool
Silence is golden
But my eyes still see
Silence is golden, golden
But my eyes still see
But my eyes still see
But my eyes still see
