Every once in a while a song is released that becomes inexplicably popular despite it being terrible, sounding like fingernails on a blackboard.
On this week in July 1982 Charlene had a number one Australian hit with the treacly ballad, I've Never Been to Me. The worst part of the song is the spoken word portion that starts at the 2:10 mark. It's the musical equivalent of a Mills and Boon romance novel.
Charlene is still around, and recording new material.
