BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1978
John Paul Young (born 21 June 1950 in Glasgow, Scotland) (known as JPY or Squeak to fans) is an Australian pop singer-songwriter who had a 1978 worldwide hit with “Love Is in the Air”. Initially performing as John Young, he was associated with songwriters/producers Vanda & Young (ex-The Easybeats), who provided him with “Love Is in the Air”. His career was boosted by regular appearances as a performer and guest host on national broadcaster, ABC’s 1974–1987 TV series, Countdown.
“Love Is In The Air” became John Paul Young’s only worldwide hit during 1978, peaking at No. 2 on the Australian charts and No. 5 in the UK singles chart. In the United States, the song peaked at No. 7 on the pop chart and spent two weeks at No. 1 on the adult contemporary chart, his only US top 40 hit.
