Some intra-decade covers:

Linda Ronstadt covering Warren Zevon (first time I ever heard a Syndrum):
And here's Warren performing the song in a fairly raucous (and probably wasted) manner:



But speaking of intra-decade crossovers:

Bowie covering Springsteen:

Not the biggest hit of the 70s but he did live on the other side of our street before he hit his fame.

Re: 70's music

I'd previously overlooked that one of my favorite Doors tunes gave its name to their 1971 album:



(The video was created in the '80s by the recently-departed Ray Manzarek.)

Also hailing from California (yeah, that's a lame-ass transition):



And although most of their fans wouldn't have heard of them until at least '83:

Wow. I haven't heard that song in going on 40 years, and as soon as it started to play I knew all the lyrics.

With John Doe of X playing the creep in the video.

Anyway, here are some big ones around my house growing up:



Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band (over half the video is Albert Lee tearing it up):

The song likely helped him become mayor of Ouray Colorado which is near Wolf Creek Pass.

Hands down, one of the most beautiful women to ever walk the earth, and one of the greatest singing voices ever.

Last year, my daughter and a bunch of her friends saw Emmylou at a festival. My daughter said that all the boys were in love with her. They couldn't believe she was close to 70.

Speaking of country and speaking of intra-decade crossovers, here's Hank Jr doing a little Marshall Tucker:

I did not know that! And it all started with bread commercials. Very pretty country, Ouray.

She's something. I see her any chance I get. The Harris/Ronstadt/Parton Trio album is one of my all-time favorite collaboration projects.

Re: 70's music

Is this the best song of 1970? For my money, yes it is.
