The coldest days of my life - The Chi-lites

The intro of this song was used in the sappy Dutch radio programme 'Candlelight', in which a presenter with a deep, dark voice read out corny poems from listeners. The atmospheric, soft-focus track was recorded in 1972 by the Chi-lites, a group consisting of Eugene Record, Robert Lester, Creadel Jones and Marshall Thompson. Their most famous song is probably 'Have you seen her', a number three hit in the UK.

This single flopped in most territories, but reached number 47 in the US Billboard Hot 100. The single split the eight minute track in two parts.
