Biography

Brotherhood of Man was a 70s British pop group that won Eurovision in 1976 with “Save Your Kisses for Me”. They borrowed the style and two-boy, two-girl approach of Swedish pop group ABBA, who had won Eurovision in 1974.

After winning Eurovision, they had a string of hits in the UK, but long-term, continued success, proved to be elusive. Nevertheless, the triple chart topping UK vocal group, formed by record producer / composer, Tony Hiller, and which originally featured the well-travelled vocalist, Tony Burrows, broke the voting record for Eurovision, and sold well over 1 million copies of “Save Your Kisses for Me”. Speaking with Songfacts about their #1 hit “Angelo” in a 2011 interview, Tony Hillier said: “Angelo, very simply, was based on perhaps the greatest love stories of all time, Romeo and Juliet. The beautiful young daughter of the richest man in the country and the handsome labourer working on the estate - they died for love.”

Save Your Kisses for Me” was nominated as one of final five finalists in the 50th anniversary Eurovision concert held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in October 2005.
