Use It Up and Wear It Out  - Odyssey


Odyssey - Use It Up And Wear It Out - 7

This energetic disco track spent two weeks at #1 in the UK from 26th July 1980. It was the only song by the New York disco act to reach #1, although it failed to enter the U.S. Hot 100.

Other hit singles in the eighties include Native New Yorker (#5) Going Back to My Roots(#4), Inside Out (#3) and If You're Lookin' For a Way Out (#6).

Odyssey also had four Top 40 albums during the 80's, including a Greatest Hits album in 1987.

Active between 1977 and 1987, the disco band achieved seven Top 40 singles in the UK, but only one hit in the U.S. with their debut single Native New Yorker.

However, the band did manage to have four Top 10 singles in the U.S. Dance Chart.

Going Back To My Roots
I used to love singing along to this one as a young teenager, and the track was the band's fifth British hit single, reaching No.4 during 1981. It did not chart in the Billboard Hot 100, but reached #55 on the dance chart.
