Rover's return - The Korgis

I don't have an enormous amount of instrumental hit singles, and certainly the only instrumental song that became the signature track for an artist I can think of was Mike Oldfield's 'Tubular bells'. But 'Rover's return' by the Korgis is another good example.

It may have been the funny barking noises and the upbeat character of the track that caused it to be played so often on the radio in 1980. This in turn helped it become a big hit in the Netherlands, peaking at number 6 in the Dutch Top 40. The track was obviously less popular with UK DJ's, as it didn't chart there.

My collection: 7" single no. 2466
Found: September 9, 1995
Cost: 3 guilders
Tracks: 'Rover's return' / 'Dumb waiters'
