Paper Lace

Paper Lace was a classic one-hit wonder band. In America, anyway. In the U.K. they were a classic two-hit wonder.

Formed in 1969 in Nottingham, England, and made up of Michael Vaughn, Chris Morris, Carlo Santanna, Cliff Fish, and Phillip Wright, Paper Lace was one of hundreds of pop bands in England looking for the big time while slogging their way through small club gigs and brief television appearances. Their big break came in 1974 when their version of the tear-jerking bubblegum tune "Billy, Don't Be a Hero" won top honors on Opportunity Knocks, a nationwide talent-show on ITV. They rode that song all the way to the top of the U.K. charts but were aced out of any sales in the U.S. by Bo Donaldson & the Haywoods' transcendent version. Their next single,"The Night Chicago Died," did manage to hit the number one slot on the U.S. charts (number three in the U.K.) and then that was it. The group released two albums, Paper Lace and Other Bits of Material in 1974 and First Editon in 1975, and did a quick fade from the public eye. In 1978 they surfaced briefly with a singalong version of "We've Got the Whole World in Our Hands" with their local football team, Nottingham Forest FC, and the disappeared forever. ~ Tim Sendra, Rovi

Good song but sad...
I take my music one song at a time. If a song hits me, I don't care who wrote or performed it. Songs about hurt, pain and loss will always have a place in my 'portfolio'. I like the song.
I thought this was a more recent rendition of the Dylan song, read the bio and was surprised to learn this, what, 30+ years ago?! These guys were ahead of their time with the sound on this one. Makes me want to check out their other stuff but I'm afraid to listen to Billy Don't Be A Hero, even if it is the original version.

I LOVE listening to Paper Lace while I'm listening to Goth and Death Metal!
Played while I was listening to goth. How does that fit? ha,ha,ha These guys blow.
They played this in the middle of my Metallica station - someone has a great sense of humor at Pandora!
