The Young Ones – The Song
The Young Ones is a single by Cliff Richard and the Shadows. The song, written by Sid Tepper and Roy C. Bennett, is the title song to the 1961 film The Young Ones and its soundtrack album. With advance orders of over 500,000, it was released in January 1962 on the Columbia (EMI) label and went straight to No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart, the first British single to do so. It held that position for six weeks and spent 20 weeks in the chart. It has sold 1.06 million copies in the UK, and 2.6m worldwide.
Young Birds in a Nest – The Shape
About young love, The Young Ones has many images associated from the film and the song, that could be modelled into this single but I choose to depict youth by modelling this record into a nest of hungry young birds.
The Young Ones (US title: Wonderful to Be Young!) is a 1961 British film musical, directed by Sidney J. Furie and featuring Cliff Richard, Robert Morley as his character’s father, Carole Gray as his love interest, and The Shadows as his band. The screenplay was written by Peter Myers and Ronald Cass, who also wrote most of the songs. Herbert Ross choreographed the dance scenes. The story is about a youth club member, and aspiring singer, Nicky and his friends, who try to save their club in London’s West End from an unscrupulous millionaire property developer Hamilton Black, who plans to tear it down to make room for a large office block.
