The veteran band Charlie should probably be
listed under the "rock" section of this site considering their
heavier sound. Charlie was a British rock band formed in 1971.
Originally, they were known as Charlie Cuckoo after a racing horse.
Oddly enough, Charlie never charted in the United Kingdom, but they did
find chart success in the USA.
Charlie's first release came in 1976 (Fantasy Girls),
although they had released singles as early as 1973. Their second
release, No Second Chance, did produce the
moderately successful song "Turning to You". In 1978, Charlie
released the album Lines, which featured the higher charting song
"She Loves to Be in Love", and the following year the song "Killer Cut"
off Fight Dirty (1979). In support of this moderate
success, Charlie toured with bands like Fleetwood Mac, Styx, BTO, The
Kinks, Alice Cooper, The Doobie Brothers, and Foreigner. Shortly
after, the band ran into issues with their record label, and funding was
cut off. After a few band members dropped out and a few new ones
joined in, they found their greatest success with the release of their
1983 self-titled release which featured their first Top 40 hit, "It's
Inevitable". Even though the song was successful, the album was
not, and Charlie decided to call it quits.
In 1986, vocalist Terry Thomas released a new album under
the Charlie moniker due to contractual obligations (In Pursuit of
wouldn't be until 2009 that a majority of original Charlie members would

Like the heat of the sun,
I'm gonna make you the one,
Like the fire in your touch,
It's inevitable, 'Cause I want you - I want you
