  1. Wow, glad I caught this thread. I will be front and center this Monday night. Thanks for posting!
  2. Fair enough. My FM listening began about 1974 ish until early 1980's when I gave up on FM radio due to overabundance of lousy music. By then they were literally phoning it in via prerecorded tapes of music. I had a good friend who was a DJ at one of our FM stations here in Tampa. He took me inside the booth a few times where he showed me the rows of albums, the microphones, the listener call in phones, etc. This was around 1977. You could call in and request off the wall stuff and they would play it. That was when FM radio meant something to me. I have no idea what they do today. I wonder where kids get to hear the good music these days. I suppose You/tube, internet, etc. Back on topic. I thought of a few more songs that might be definitive for the 1970's. I'm using the criteria of hearing these songs blasting from cars during the Friday night cruising, lol. Those would be Smoke on the Water, Born to Run, We are the Champions, Hotel California. And of course, there was Lynryd Skynyrd's Free Bird. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CPWdCvwqQI0 I got sick of hearing this constantly during it's heyday. But on this video from 7 to 10 minute mark there is some damn fine guitar playing going on. Wow, surprised how good this turned out to be! Hi Walter, agree with you on The Beatles and Hey Jude especially. Hi Plantpothead. I liked all your choices too, except I don't know who Half Man Half biscuit is? Will have to You/Tube it. Enough rambling, please someone else jump in. Missy
  3. Yikes, lighten up. I'm sure I'm not the only person who actually liked FM radio in the 1970's. I wouldn't have most of my vinyl if not for FM. I had friends who introduced me to some music such as Zep, Yes, Neil, and sweet Joni. But after moving out on my own I was grateful to FM to hear what my favorite bands were up to. For example albums cuts from Steely Dan's The Royal Scam or Michael Franks The Art of Tea. You would never hear those albums played on AM radio. Just because a song or album is played or overplayed on FM radio does not delegitimize it's greatness or lasting impact.
  4. Agree with your selection of STH as the definitive rock song of the 1970's. I'd like to add another classic that had a lot of impact, imo. YES!!
  5. Hmm, not sure some people will consider this song Rock enough? But I do. Thriller (with this #1 single Billie Jean) was released in Summer 1982, and boy, that was it. They played all the songs from it everywhere. And that's okay with me. I rank it as one of the all time best albums of the period. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kXhy7ZsiR50 Good grief, love that bass!
  6. Great for Jason and the rest of us who get the great music. I wonder how many bands Glenn Hughes has been with? I see him mentioned here with Deep Purple, and one or two more. Guy gets around! The only band I ever associated with Glenn was Trapeze. I still enjoy Black Cloud. Missy
  7. Groovin' with some Roberta Flack and Donny too.....
  8. Today with the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks (along with the senseless killing going on in Syria), this great Stevie Wonder song keeps running through my mind. Timeless. Good morn or evening friends Here's your friendly announcer I have serious news to pass on to every-body What I'm about to say Could mean the world's disaster Could change your joy and laughter to tears and pain It's that Love's in need of love today Don't delay Send yours in right away Hate's goin' round Breaking many hearts Stop it please Before it's gone too far The force of evil plans To make you its possession And it will if we let it Destroy ev-er-y-body We all must take Precautionary measures If love and please you treasure Then you'll hear me when I say Oh that Love's in need of love today love's in need of love today Don't delay don't delay Send yours in right away right a-way Hate's goin' round hate's goin' round Breaking many hearts break-ing hearts Stop it please stop it please Before it's gone too far gone too far.... Did you ever think that love would be in need of love today? (Stevie Wonder)
  9. This song never gets old to me. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9bP-LbR8u8
  10. KMP, why don't you upload your singing and interpretation of Jimmy's music to You/Tube? I'd like to hear it. But as soon as I saw you were associating with ReverbNation, no way. That site has had Malware and other Virus issues and I've already had enough of those to last a lifetime. Not worth the chance. Please consider using You/Tube. I'm sure there are hackers that can mess with it too, but it 's a h*ll of a sight safer than ReverbNation. Regardless, I give you credit for having the courage to compose/sing and ask for critiques. I could never do it (my voice is lousy), but how do you know if you don't try? Good Luck. Missy
  11. Rick, the Feds are looking into whether Trayvon Martin's civil rights were violated, which is permissible despite the not guilty verdict. My understanding is the FBI had run a concurrent investigation for over a year, interviewing some 30 witnesses in an effort to prove Zimmerman was a racist and came up with nothing. As a matter of fact, I believe I heard one media report he had mentored several black youths. But Al Sharpton, among others do not want to let this go. It's done. It's a tragedy all the way around and as a parent my heart breaks for Trayvon's parents. However, it was a fair trial, the jury has spoken based on the evidence -not opinion as Sagg implied in an earlier post.
  12. For Deb.....have fun and wish I could be there!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsh6FrWmKSM
  13. Hi Strider! Hmm, well I don't see Florida on your itinerary....... I'll just send you a big wave and a smile from the Sunshine State on the 18th when you are near the East Coast. Be safe, have a ball and looking forward to hearing about your travels upon your return. Missy "I'm traveling in some vehicle, I'm sitting in some café......." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wQPB_HAQyB4
  14. Happy Birthday to you TypeO. Have a great day! Missy
  15. Hi Deb and april_lynn, great choices! I've been in a Beatles mood myself lately. Actually, more specifically a George Harrison mood. I know these were Top 40 "hits", but I love them lyrically the best. Missy ^^^This is a nice acoustic version.......
  16. Rick, have you ever considered a Sony Vaio? I don't know what their reputation is in the industry, but I've had mine for almost 3 years and it has been a workhorse. I leave the thing on almost 24/7 and it run it hard with multiple windows and it keeps on ticking. It is an I7 Quad Core which probably helps. What it isn't good at is stopping Virus's. I've had a few slip in....some nasty Malware, Trojans too. I've used Norton, McAfee, Avast!, and Malwarebytes along with the basic Windows stuff but some still seem to come through every so often. The sites I visit seem legit, so it torques me off when this occurs. For that reason, I agree that an Apple looks better and better..... Oh, the other thing is I do get the occasional blue crash screen too but I attribute that to Windows 7 more than the Sony Vaio which has been a tank. Then again, I'm not a computer tech so what do I know? Just my 2 cents, hope your Toshiba will do the trick for awhile for you. Missy
  17. I've had this problem for every single You/tube vid I try to post using IE. When using Chrome (which I don't like) the videos post no problem. I'm anxious to see if I can do this work-around so I don't have to sign into Google Chrome just for this website. Let's give it a go, Neil Young "Old Man." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVC2cszdTao Oh my gosh...it appears to have worked! I have to try this one more time and copy instructions. Needle and the the Damage Done..... Thank-you Type O! Missy.
  18. Yes, the whole album.....sometimes you can't break them up w/o losing something along the way. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VmHAdrtqyi0
  19. Picked this up at Barnes and Noble the other night. It was originally published in 1980. It is written by George Harrison himself. I'm looking forward to his thoughts. There are lots of pics of handwritten song notes throughout....that alone makes the purchase very worthwhile to me. Plus, he was a Beatle!!
  20. Three songs come immediately to mind....... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-hsuHNWwBKs And this one...... And this when the lights go low....
  21. I was going through my vinyl and ran across Dave Mason, It's Like You Never Left. I had to Google to learn he was a member of Traffic at one time (!) But I mainly had one or two faves off the album I ran into the ground including this one with some great harmonica.
  22. Hi to you too ally. I think there should be a Stevie Wonder thread, but since there isn't...think it would be okay to post a couple more songs for his birthday week? I wonder if some would be surprised at how versatile Stevie can be. He has his great Funk songs like this 70's gem.... Then of course his many Pop Hits like the great Sir Duke.... But my favorites are his romantic, jazzy, longer songs...not as commercial, but oh so good, like Another Star..... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vuHgs8aHFJ4
  23. This is about the making of the Steely Dan Album Aja in it's entirety, narrated by Fagen and Becker. I found it fascinating. See what you think. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8GwEX7nn6o
