One Electric Day – The Three Suzi Quatro Number One Hits

With Suzi Quatro heading back to Australia for Duane McDonald’s One Electric Day in November, here is a Noise11 lookback to the three number one hits of Suzi Quatro.

All three of Suzi’s number one hits in Australia did not make the USA charts at all.

Here first was ‘Can The Can’.

‘Can The Can’ started a successful partnership for Suzi Quatro with Australian songwriter and producer Mike Chapman. Chapman and his songwriting partner Nicky Chinn had a string of his in the 70s for Suzi, The Sweet, Smokie, Racey and Mud. Mike later produced the ‘Get The Knack’ album for The Knack and Blondie’s ‘Parallel Lines’ album featuring the single ‘Heart of Glass’.

1973’s ‘Can The Can’ was a song about female empowerment, an anthem in its day.

’48 Crash’ came just a few months later and established Suzi as a Glam Rock artist. This one was again witten and produced by Chapman and Chinn.

Suzi Quatro’s third Australian number one came in 1974. ‘Devil Gate Drive’ was more from Chapman and Chinn. Years later when Suzi was cast as Leather Tuscadero in Happy Days, the song featured in the season 5 episode ‘Fonzi and Leather Tuscadero, Part II’.

Suzi Quatro will headline One Electric Day in Australia in November.

One Electric Day will also feature The Angels, Baby Animals, The Screaming Jets and Chocolate Starfish.
