  1. Yes some jarring contrasts from song to song – for example Sir Duke to Undercover Angel 😬. Did you feature the latter on your worst songs series? Can’t remember.

    • I don’t think I did- but it certainly would fall into that category! That was a strange week- some very good stuff and some very lame stuff. You’d think a song by Shawn Cassidy would be the worst song on there easily but he was out shined!

  2. Dreams is one of my all-time favorite songs. I’m surprised you gave Hotel California a ‘C’. While I’m lukewarm about the Eagles overall (really like some of their songs but really dislike others), I love Hotel California, and it’s certainly a favorite of many. And though I liked it in the beginning, I’m sick to death of Margaritaville, and it would be lovely to never hear it ever again.

  3. I wanna take you to heaven.
    that would make my day complete.
    but you and me ain’t no movie stars.
    what we are is what we are.
    we share a bed,
    some lovin’,
    and tv, yeah.
    and that’s enough for a workin’ man.
    what I am is what I am.
    and I tell you, babe,
    well that’s enough for me.
    –Alice Cooper, Dick Wagner
    Great song. I wish Chris Stapleton would cover it.

    • I like that Alice song.. he has probably aged less than most rock stars– of course he aged quickly in the 70’s- then pretty much stayed the same… I can hear Stapleton doing that.

  4. If you are only as strong as your weakest link…this is one of the weakest top 40s I’ve seen in the 70s… I would still take it over today…don’t get me wrong…at least I know the bad songs.
    The Alice Cooper song in the hands of say…Kenny Nolan would be awful…but Alice puts enough edge on it to carry it through.

    • That one I remembered for some terrible reason. Compared to others in the 70s yes it was down on the list…it did have some winners but not as many as others.

  5. TWO “Gonna Fly Now”s??? I had to look up Ariel. I’ve never heard that…or, if I did, I blocked it out of my mind. YUCK. Lonely Boy was depressing. Undercover Angel…YUCK. I’m still laughing over the Bump song. Leo Sayer…BARF. I had to look up the Addrisi Brothers. Drawing a blank. Wow. A H & O song where John is actually singing and Daryl wasn’t taking over, completely. I don’t remember Slow Down by John Miles. Had to look that one up. I suddenly was reminded of Shaft. I miss Rita Coolidge on the radio.
