Mississippi

I've been attempting to come up with a song - or two or three - to illustrate the notion of there being plenty of songs on UK radio about America, and (relatively) few concerning England.
As ever, push comes to shove & memory fails - but my upstairs jukebox did belt out something suitable - which proves that the Dutch were well versed on, (or at least benefited from), England's fascination with the USA.

Call it cheesy, call it bubblegum… you may say they were no better than Baccara, or even the Brotherhood of Man (nothing wrong with Baccara in my book, mind you). But chances are you remember it, right from the opening pedal steel guitar (which Carpenters song is that? - Sssh...).
