one of the most bizarre/incongruous sights i have ever seen was the 7th and 8th cheerleaders twirling batons to "I Am Woman" -- even then i was soon pissed off! (see, back then girls were not allowed to play basketball! only do cheerleading . . . i sucked at sports, but felt bad for a friend of mine who was an amazing basketball player . . . but, by the time i got to 8th grade, we DID have a girls' basketball team)

I think 68' was the great year for radio. I remember hearing Desmond Dekker's The Israelites along with Johnny Cash's A Boy Named Sue and Herb Albert's This guy's in love....in rural North Carolina. What a mix

@Kelly Jones: And there's a LOT more where these came from!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 10/28/18 9:38pm Gaylord Fields:

@Tommy in Neversink: I'm also partial to 1969 and 1970.

yes, there was an instrumental interlude during cherry blossom clinic...i didnt know it had a name! - sort of a variation on that apollo jam... i think thats kind of a 'traditional' melody though, maybe? archaic...
  Sun. 10/28/18 9:39pm Joe R.:

I was skeptical about the premise of this show - I’d say 1966 if asked (no one has) - but you both are laying out a convincing argument :) Plus heavy nostalgia since I was *just* starting to be aware of music at this time, probably on WABC too
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:39pm Tommy in Neversink:

It's possible some of the songs I mentioned were 69'

1972 was a crazy year for me, at 15

i can only reduce it to a favorite decade, and it's an 11-year decade. 1965-1976.

@Joe R.: Glad you're giving our thesis consideration.

Here in Oz was split between England / US (and our own) on the radio. We got more Bowie, Roxy Music, Slade, Garry Glitter for e.g.

Sly and the Family Stone doing It's a family Affair is like Bad Company (the band) doing Bad Company ( the song)

i think Terre T.'s bed music was a William Orbit remix??? i remember calling her up to ask her what she was playing and then bought the CD . . . but of course NOW i cannot for the life of me recall the title!

Creedence's "Switch Hitch Hiker" is from 1972

I love '65 but like '72 too; great nonhit LP trax too: fusion, soul, country-rock, art rock, hard rock.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 10/28/18 9:46pm coelacanth∅:

my older sister got me into Sly & the family inadvertently
she used to steal bags full of 45s because she could, i guess, and she gave me "family affair" for xmas. i knew she didn't give a shit what i wanted, which was hard rock music, mostly. then she gave me another copy of it for my birthday 1 month later. so i listened to it again, and i liked it.

u-fred really? it does sound more like Bach but i thought i'd borrowed the Beethoven record after learning the music's origin.

in re: the bridge discussion on Michael Shelley's show, does "I Can See Clearly Now" qualify? if that is a bridge in that song, it soars!

It's probably bad form to ask, but what year was the worst for popular music?
Appreciate the visit to '72, Gaylord & Bronwyn.

.. was downhill slowly after '72,,, and down more after like '77 ,,, well ..

Jinx, that bridge is beautiful, classical music like chord changes
Avatar Swag For Life Member    Sun. 10/28/18 9:59pm Tommy in Neversink:

IMO Heart of Gold is the least interesting song on Harvest (one of the best albums ever made) and it was the hit.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Sun. 10/28/18 10:00pm coelacanth∅:

Tome but "punk" ("new wave") revitalized it for 3-4 years, in my opinion.

don't know thie Miguel somebodyorother tune, will have to seek yhat out. (I know Rainbow used to play it.)
