  1. Now this is a very bad week. Not many highlights at all… I’m not a fan of the Little River Band but Cool Change is the one that I do like…It’s my “Summer of 69” by them.

    • I was surprised how bad this week actually was.. Not much to choose from… I think the LRB had potential but somehow went too too mellow overall… Stevie Wonder also disappoints with a flower commercial type song….I’d forgotten about this one.

    • I was never a Kenny Rogers fan- but those were two of his worst- makes a number of his other hits sound better in comparison. …
