Every single girl in my 7th grade class was in love with Shaun Cassidy. Meaning even if he was the greatest musical talent since Dylan I probably would have hated him.

That being said, in hindsight, I have to admit that a few of the Eric Carmen songs he covered weren't bad.




Not as good as the originals, understand, but decent pop songs.

Jackson Browne and, once again, Warren Zevon:

I'll see your Shaun Cassidy and raise you an Andy Gibb:



My apologies to everyone else. Here's some mindsoap:

A guy I'm friends with was in Lennon's band during that time period.

I always wished whoever shot that footage had spent a little less time on John and thrown in a few longer shots of the players. I'd love to be able to spot my friend in the footage.

In any event, continuing the mind soap, here's some Springsteen from that same approximate time period, you know, back when Bruce could still write songs that were fun:

Re: 70's music

My regards to your Plastic Ono Elephant's Memory friend...and my belated, very sarcastic thanks to you for reminding me of what an insidious earworm "You Light Up My Life" was.

In the interest of full disclosure, my sister had that single back in the day, and single-digits me actually listened to it willingly. I always had a sentimental streak in me, which is why, years before I knew from Paul or the Beatles, I loved this song on the radio:



Hopefully that returns the favor!

A couple more from that world tour:

Re: 70's music

My dad had "You Light of my life" and would play it over and over.

At the same time, he also played this album over and over:


So he wasn't completely lame.

Re: 70's music

Heh...that reminds me of something I was told by an old friend who was an original-generation Beatles fan. As I recall him telling it, his father had nothing good to say about the Beatles and blamed them for all of society's ills...yet for some unexplained reason, he'd listen to "Yellow Submarine" over and over again.

On a completely unrelated note, to make good use of my post...I'm regretting that I hadn't thought to include this is the same post as "Convoy":

My parents had me relatively young. My father was only about 38 or 39 when Parallel lines came out. So him listening to something "modern" wasn't that shocking.

Of course, had it been a Blondie video, I think it would have been a lot less surprising he took an interest.

Here's one for your old (G-)man:



And from the same year, a couple of new kids on the charts in the closing months of the decade:

Re: 70's music

My teen years were the '80s, but I think more of my core listening is from the '70s. Something about the new directions artists were exploring after the '60s, and the reaction against established sounds, made for a lot of great music.

A beautiful little ballad from 1972:


Some perfected pop, also from '72:


A two-chord classic:

Re: 70's music

Of significant historical note--In the closing months of the decade, a new phenomenon emerges:



My sister had the 12" single shown in the video. I recall once having my Star Wars action figures perform part of the song....

A couple of other things that didn't sound like everything else on the radio in 1979:



(Baton-twirling 1979 Stevie is droolworthy.)
