There was also a release called ‘Sing Something Silver’, to mark the 25th year of ‘Sing Something Simple’, and a ‘Very Best Of’ compilation album, which featured 56 songs, not including the theme tune, which traditionally opened and closed the radio show, and most other compilations. The Cliff Adams singers frequently sang medleys. Sometimes the songs were grouped thematically, other times they did medleys of songs by certain artists - Elvis Presley and The Everly Brothers, for example. They also sang traditional songs like “Old McDonald Had a Farm”, “One Man Went To Mow”, and the Swiss folk song, “Upidee”. They also had a Top 40 hit in the UK Singles Chart with the "Lonely Man Theme” in 1960, although as this was an instrumental, it was credited to the Cliff Adams Orchestra. The tune became associated with a television commercial for a brand of UK cigarette, named Strand. The actress and entertainer Anita Harris was, at various times, a singer with the group.
