banned by the BBC

Because nice folks didn’t “go all the way” in 1972.

But Eric Carmen from Cleveland, Ohio did: with a band called the Raspberries, a searing opening guitar riff and a tribute to the Beatles beginning about 2:10. (come on!) 

3:16 of power-pop perfection and 
#5 on Billboard's Top 100 Singles of 1972
