WXPN was revisiting 1975 this week - three songs from that year played in the 9:00am hour every day. And every day, I screamed with delight and recognition. Now, I scream with delight and recognition at a lot of things ("I read that book!", "Taco salads in the lunchroom!"), but five days in a row for one year?? That doesn't normally happen. So, I have concluded that, for better or for worse, my musical tastes were set in concrete in that year. The songs are below. Have we ever done that as a theme? What years would you guys come up with?
PS: Deb and J.: the band London Grammar? Thoughts??
Earth Wind & Fire - Shining Star
The Eagles - One Of These Nights
The Ozark Mountain Daredevils - Jackie Blue
Steely Dan - Doctor Wu
David Bowie - Fame
Led Zeppelin - Ten Years Gone
Bob Dylan - Tangled Up In Blue*
Queen - Killer Queen
War - Low Rider
Brian Eno - St. Elmo's Fire**
Willie Nelson - Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain***
Janis Ian - At Seventeen
Phoebe Snow - Poetry Man
Labelle - Lady Marmalade
*Surprising, but true! The only Dylan album I've ever owned.
**Okay, I'd never heard this song before.
***Scream? No. Deeply respect? Yes.
