Band of Gold

Band of Gold by Freda Payne was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, September 19, 1970 spending 6 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. There is some mystery to this song. Some people think it is about an impotent man, while others think it is about a frigid woman. It was about this guy that was basically gay, and he couldn't perform. He loved her, but he couldn't do what he was supposed to do as a groom, as her new husband. Because of the subject matter, Freda Payne did not want to record this at first. She thought the song was about a woman who was a virgin or sexually naive, and felt it was more suitable for a teenager.
