    Bethoven's Fifth Symphony, The Star Spangled Banner, and Greek Chants were just out. Actually, The Beatles White Album was released the same day as our senior prom. I've Been Lonely Too Long, Good Vibrations were biggies about that time. Oh, it's been Soooooo long! peace

    The Way We Were by Barbara Streisand was the number one song in 1974. It sucked.

    Walk On The Wild Side caught my attention during the same time because I couldn't believe they would play that song on the radio. They must not have listened to the words.

    Bachman Turner Overdrive, Grand Funk Railroad, ELO, Wings, Three Dog Night, Bob Seger before he got famous, REO before they got radio friendly, and one of my favorites of that era was #9 Dream by John Lennon.
