Every year when it's by brothers birthday, I send him a link to the Hollies record 'He ain't heavy, he's my brother; and although he says he likes the record, I'd like to send him something different this year. Problem is, I can't find anything suitable and wondered if you might have some suggestions.Nothing too modern as he will be 77 yrs old although he's quite 'with it'.

That's better!
How about The Drifters - Like Sister and Brother from 1973?



Not my favourite song, but the title fits.

yeah, but "we don't want all the world to know we are really lovers" aren't really suitable lyrics, are they? ;) x x
Try and get a dime out of him ;-)

Good point, Bathsheba.
"We didn't start the fire" . Billy Joel .He may know a lot of those listed .It a song not many if any sing along with after the verse.
Pity his name isn't Louie.

Thanks for all your suggestions. The titles are good but the words are not always suitable. Think it might be kat1's suggestion My Bruvver. Not keen on it myself but my bruvver will probably like it.xx
One line in this ♫ Call on me Brother...♫

Hey Barsel,....I've just logged on + thought I'd pop over to see if you'd made a decision. As it happens, I've got that single by Terry Scott on vinyl...(along with Sparky's Magic Piano), heheheh x x
Ooh Mamya,...you snuck up on me there while I was typing ;)
That's a fab choice!! Yay you :D x x x
This song is more modern. I'm not as old as your brother but find it to be a pleasant song. This clip shows lyrics.
