Come Saturday Morning - The Sandpipers
I Think I Love You - The Partridge Family - If you were a young girl in the seventies, you had to have a crush on David Cassidy. It was mandatory, like gym class.
Eres Tu - MocedadesDo You Wanna Make Love - Peter McCann
One Tin Soldier from the "Billy Jack" movie
One Toke Over The Line -- Brewer & Shipley. I'll bet my parents just about shit when they heard me singing along to that classic.
Afternoon Delight -- Starland Vocal Band
Life Is A Rock (But The Radio Rolled Me) -- Reunion
China Grove - Doobie Brothers
Summer Breeze - Seals and Crofts
Seasons In The Sun -- Terry Jacks - This song actually depressed the living CRAP out of me, and scared me as well (what? People actually DIE?) until I went to my friend Sandy's house one afternoon and she played it over and over and OVER while she cleaned her hamster's cage. I became immune to it that day. What do they call that - immersion therapy?The Night Chicago Died -- Paper Lace
Any song by John Denver - In the seventies, John Denver was required listening. I think they piped it through the water.
Precious And Few -- Climax
Beach Baby -- First Class
O-o-h Child -- The Five Stairsteps
Sometimes When We Touch -- Dan Hill. So dramatic!
Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes) -- Edison Lighthouse
The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia -- Vicki Lawrence - Oh, Vicki had an AWESOME backstory - The way I remember it, she was a big fan of The Carol Burnett show back when it was on the air (Lyle Waggoner, anybody?), so she wrote Carol a fan letter, and Carol wrote back and said, "Come on out to Hollywood and be on my show!", so she did.
The Free to Be You and Me soundtrack - I wore that sucker out.
Now, I am trusting Amazon as far as the named artists go - I was just a kid when these songs came out. I'm pretty sure "The Five Stairsteps" did not perform the version of Oooooh Child that I listened to, but I don't know who DID, so whatevs.
I'm also pretty sure that I had NO IDEA what the lyrics to some of these songs actually meant.
Okay, what songs were you diggin when you were a kid? Fess up.
