This Week’s One-Hit Wonder (OHW) is ‘Stuck in the Middle with You’ (#13 1973) by Scottish band Stealers Wheel (1972-1975) that consisted of Gerry Rafferty & Joe Egan who came from Paisley. Their self-titled first album was produced by music legends Leiber & Stoller and contained this hit. Supposedly about their dread in attending a record company event the song has become very famous over the years and this was greatly assisted by Quentin Tarrantino using it in a gruesome torture scene in his 1992 film Reservoir Dogs. Gerry went on the have a very successful AOR career before his passing on 2011.
