Figaro by Brotherhood of Man was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, February 11, 1978 spending 1 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. Like Mozart's opera "The Marriage of Figaro," this song takes place in Spain and is about a charming young man with the same same. Tony Hiller, who founded Brotherhood of Man and was their manager, wrote the song with group members Lee Sheriden and Martin Lee. This second version of the band didn't fare well in America, as they had lost momentum when material stopped being released there.
