John Paul Young (born 21 June 1950 in Glasgow, Scotland) (known as JPY or Squeak to fans) is an Australian pop singer 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, Yesterdays Hero, I Hate the Music and Standing in the Rain. His career was boosted by regular appearances as a performer and guest host on national broadcaster, ABCs 1974-1987 TV series, Countdown. For touring purposes he fronted The All Stars, who also worked with Vanda Youngs former bandmate Stevie Wright. The All Stars included Warren Morgan (ex-Chain, Billy Thorpe the Aztecs) on piano and vocals, who co-wrote songs with Young. Besides Love Is in the Air, Young had top ten chart success in Germany and the Netherlands with Standing in the Rain and four other top ten hits in South Africa, including No. 1 hits with I Hate the Music in 1976 and Yesterdays Hero in 1977.
