Simply Red - Ain't That A Lot Of Love


Simply Red is a band from Manchester, England consisting of Mick Hucknall. Born on June 8, 1960, Mick got the nickname "Red" because of his red hair. The rest of the band included Fritz McIntyre (keyboards), Tim Kellett (keyboards), Sylvan Richardson (guitar), Tony Bowers (bass), And Chris Joyce (drums).

Today's post was the eighth and last time that they saw one of their songs make the dance chart and is also their third Top 10.

By far, this has got to be THE greatest Simply Red song. ENJOY

Taken from the original 12" single on EastWest 67014
Ain't That A Lot Of Love (Club 69 Underground Club Mix) - 8:18
Song charted on November 13, 1999. Spent 14 weeks on the chart and reached #3

Thanks for the updated information. My book of dance hits only goes up to 2003. I have the music yearbook for 2003 and 2004 and forgot to check these for other Simply Red songs. Thanks for the correction
