Do yourself a favour

What were you doing in the week ending October 14, 1977? At the time I was too young to know what calendars were, nor did I follow the music charts.

Had I known, I would have been aware that Emerson, Lake and Palmer's instrumental, Fanfare for the Common Man held the number 7 position in the 3XY top 40. Its highest chart position was number 4.

A generation of Australian television viewers came to know it when it was used by Channel 7 for many years in the opening titles of live sports broadcasts.
