Nope, sorry, neither of those, but we are talking early seventies-ish.

A clue: There's no words in this, in the first 90 seconds of the single.

Not 100% sure of the lyrics but Papa Was a Rolling Stone has a very long intro.

Nope. This one was written as part of a film score. In fact, the artist behind the song was the first African American to win an Oscar in a non-acting role for this piece of music.

Correct. There's also a line in it where Isaac Hayes says "He's a real mother.." and gets cut off by the backing singers saying "Watch your mouth!"

The backing singers were basically two members of Dawn, yep, Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree, Dawn.

Not sure if we had this before.

What foreign language song holds the record for the longest run at number one in the UK singles chart?
