    • I think- 1973 and 1974 were the worst years in the 70’s- the other years Top 40’s seem pretty good- those ones have a lot of turkey’s.

    • Yes a lot of Seasons in the Sun type songs and the Osmonds in those years.

      I still can’t get over that other Osmond song you featured the other day.

    • When Casey said The Osmonds- and the music started I had to go look at the screen I was sure there was some kind of mistake… I can’t believe your sister skipped over that one!

    • She probably thought the song was a defect on the album lol.

      I remember in the early 80s her pestering me to stand in line with her (her husband was working) for Kenny Roger tickets to keep her company…while they were selling ELO tickets also (I was broke)…I couldn’t convince a lost cause.

    • There was a line for Kenny Rogers tickets? Those were the days-NOT- I don’t miss the standing in line for ticket- once I camped out overnight to get U2 tickets outside Three Rivers Stadium- slept on the concrete– I remember it was the day Lauren Green died! I had my radio with me and the joke was – how many dog years did he live..

    • Lol yes a line in a mall to make it all the better. The last line I stood in for tickets was in 1993 for Bob Dylan and after that I would call and order them.
      If someone ever asks you what you were doing on 9/11/87 you can answer!

    • The sitting or laying on concrete sucked but… that is where you met people that had the same interest and stories…

    • and it was memorable. it was a long line once they started selling tickets i think it took a couple hours to get to the front.

  1. Hmmm…I’m not really feeling it. Rich Girl and I Wanna Get Next to you, ok. Btw, I had to wait until I could use Google to find the real lyrics to Blinded by the Light.

  2. Lots of great songs that week, and a few clunkers too. “Year of the Cat” is one of my all-time favorite songs, and I also really liked Atlanta Rhythm Section’s “So Into You” and Jennifer Warnes’ “Right Time of the Night”. And as much as I loved disco (I’ll soon be publishing my list of Best Disco Songs), I hated the reprehensible “Disco Lucy”. I remember thinking when I heard it back then that disco had finally reached rock-bottom and would soon die, but the Bee Gees and others kept it going strong for another two years.

    • I saw Al Stewart is coming around on a Greatest Hits tour I’ve always liked him but have never seen him. Year Of The Cat I agree is a great one!!
