THE CONNELLS-'74–'75

"'74–'75" is a 1993 single from the album Ring by the American band The Connells. The song became a big hit in Europe, particularly in Sweden and Norway where it topped the singles charts in 1995. The accompanying music video was directed by Mark Pellington. It was shot at Needham B. Broughton High School in the band's hometown Raleigh, North Carolina in 1993, and featured members of the Class of 1975, juxtaposing yearbook pictures with footage of the same people as they appeared in 1993. While not becoming a big hit in the band's native United States, the song became a Top 20 hit throughout Europe in early 1995, eventually spreading to the UK, where it became their first hit, peaking at number 14 in August. A re-release of the single there in March 1996 only managed number 21.
