Uptown, Uptempo Woman — Randy Edelman

Today Randy Edelman is a well-known film and TV composer, but back in the mid-1970s he wrote and performed one of my favourite songs.

Although “Uptown, Uptempo Woman” wasn’t a global smash hit by any means, and just squeaked into the UK Top 30 for a couple of weeks in 1976, in my opinion it’s one of the finest songs, musically and lyrically, to make an appearance in the UK pop charts.

No Words, No Song

Without words, it’s just a nice tune. Add words — now you’ve got a song. And songs can change your world. I write about some that changed mine.
