Back stabbers - O'Jays

Vindictive? Moi? I guess so. Every time I hear this song I think back to my student years, when I had to deal with a few teachers who were always grinning when I talked with them, but when it came down to re-evaluating a grade I got which was too low (by all accounts) they wouldn't listen to reason. So this one is for Swante and Henk.

The O'Jays had a hit with this back in 1972, peaking at number 3 in the US Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, number 14 in the UK and number 11 in the Netherlands.

My collection: 7" single no. 2808
Found: Record fair, January 26, 1997
Cost: 1 guilder
Tracks: 'Back stabbers' / 'Sunshine'


  1. I love this song. Your blog is the best!!!

  2. Interesting that this number came out only a year after The Undisputed Truth's "Smiling Faces Sometimes" (Gordy 7108; the title of which was snuck into the lyrics of this piece near the end).
