Please Don't Go/My Cup Runneth Over
Barry Hugh Crocker (born 4 November 1935 Geelong) is the Oz equivalent of the UK’s Max Bygraves but I think he is a more consummate performer. He is a stage actor, TV actor, film actor, pop singer, comedian etc and has been able to survive for numerous years in the media. He has awards for singing, performing in stage musicals, acting and TV “Logie” awards for just being a personality. Crocker also has starred alongside Barry Humphries in the title role of The Adventures of Barry McKenzie and its sequel, Barry McKenzie Holds His Own. In 1985 Barry sang the original recording of the theme song for the Australian soap opera Neighbours which was written by Tony Hatch and Jackie Trent the couple responsible for “Downtown” and “The Two of Us”. He started his career in 1969 with a fairly big hit "Please Don’t Go" which is a well orchestrated ballad #22 on the charts. (Tom Mix)
