Avenues and Alleyways

"Avenues and Alleyways" is a 1973 single recorded by Tony Christie as the theme song for the television series The Protectors. It was written and produced by Mitch Murray and Peter Callander, who were also responsible for Christie's "Las Vegas" and "I Did What I Did for Maria". Following the chart-topping success of the re-release of "Is This the Way to Amarillo" in 2005, this song was also re-released and peaked at No. 26 on the UK Singles Chart. On its original release, it had only reached No. 37. It is included in the soundtrack of the 2000 film Love, Honour and Obey, starring Ray Winstone and Jude Law.[1][2][3][4]
