Everybody's laughing - Phil Fearon and Galaxy

Some 12" singles only appear in my collection because they're cheap. I don't think I would have ever had this one if I'd had to pay more for it than I did back then. 'Everybody's laughing' is a nice pop song, but nothing spectacular.

Still, this 12" single is quite interesting, because it features an extended mix and two instrumental versions. One features Randy Muller (who?) and the other Tom Browne, who had a hit in the early Eighties with 'Funkin' for Jamaica'.

My collection: 12" single no. 273
Found: Spui Records, Den Haag, 1996
Cost: 2,5 guilders
Tracks: 'Everybody's laughnig (Sangria mix)' / 'Everybody's laughing (Instrumental featuring Tom Browne)', 'Everybody's laughing (Instrumental featuring Randy Muller)'

Everybody's laughing - Phil Fearon and Galaxy

Phil Fearon was born in London on July 30, 1956. He was lead singer, songwriter, keyboardist and producer of the band Galaxy. Galaxy was not a 'band' in the true sense: Fearon made all the music himself and hired backing singers to supplement the sound.

Galaxy's singles were all upbeat commercial pop songs, some of which made it into the UK top 10. Outside of the UK, some of those singles also scored well. 'Everybody's laughing' peaked at number 10 in the UK and at number 21 in the Netherlands. It's one of those singles which I must have played no more than three times since I bought it.

My collection: 7" single no. 1388
Found: All that music, Leiden, February 22, 1991
Cost: 2 guilders
Tracks: 'Everybody's laughing' / 'Everybody's laughing (instrumental)'
