Who Do You Think You Are by Bo Donaldson and The Heywoods

'Who Do You Think You Are' by Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods
September 1974

Released in August, 1974, 'Who Do You Think You Are' was Bo Donaldson and the Heywoods' followup single to the their smash hit  'Billy, Don't Be A Hero', which had dominated AM radio airplay all during the Summer of '74.

I remember hearing 'Who Do You Think You Are' in early September '74, and thinking it was a great song. Even today it holds up well as a 70s pop masterpiece. 

The song originally was written and performed by the musicians in the British group Jigsaw ('You've Blown It All Sky-High', 1975), who had a UK hit with the song in earlier in 1974.

The Cincinnati-based Donaldson and the Heywoods continue to perform, and their music is available  online.
