Almost Broke My Hip




This week in April of 1977, soul singer Joe Tex returned to the U.K. Top 40 with the disco hit "Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman)". Thanks in part to a playful performance on Top of the Pops, the song would peak at #2 the week of May 22, held off from from the top spot by Rod Stewart's double A-side "I Don't Want to Talk About It"/"The First Cut is the Deepest". Tex also revisited the Top 40 in the United States, peaking at #12 on the pop charts. This would be the last hit for Joe Tex before his death in 1982 at the age of 47.
