Okay, you might not know who Leo Sayer is, but you know his songs, especially "You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" and "When I Need You." (He also looks a little Richard Simmons, but that’s beside the point.)
Anyway, we haven’t seen much of him since the late ’70s, but now he might just be having the Best Week Ever. Check it out:
[A] remix of a 29-year-old Leo Sayer obscurity puts the erstwhile British star on top of the singles chart. "Thunder In My Heart" by Meck featuring Leo Sayer came to be after the DJ found a copy of Sayer’s modest 1977 hit of that name in a bargain bin. His remix became a hot club item and after clearances were obtained, Sayer began promoting the track some weeks ago. It now gives him a second U.K. No. 1 to go alongside "When I Need You," from early 1977.
This reminds me what my dad used to tell me: You can never count out Leo Sayer.
