In late 1971, Zeppelin released Zeppelin IV, or whatever you wanna call it.
My 2 favorite songs on the album.

Led Zeppelin ~ Misty Mountain Hop

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUvkxz1nHMM

Led Zeppelin ~ Rock n Roll

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bF5gBT06FQ0

Bonham's drumming on Rock n Roll  is relentless.

1971, the year of my favourite song by The Stampeders ...

The Stampeders - Carry Me
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnjaIri_aKk



And because I know some will do this, here is the best known song by The Stampeders (also from 1971), which was their biggest hit outside of Canada.  It was actually one of only 2 Top 40 hits they had in the US ...

The Stampeders - Sweet City Woman

Strange affair with this - the Temptations recorded it first, but Undisputed Truth had the hit...

Sometime later, Undisputed Truth recorded 'Papa Was A Rollin' Stone' first, but the Temptations had the hit!

Couldn't Motown make its mind up?

In one of those strange 'how the hell did THAT happen?' cases, this long-forgotten track from 1964 by an equally long-forgotten band strolled to the top in Britain!

Here's a bit of historical trivia:  In February of 1971, Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau caused a minor scandal when he was accused of dropping the F-bomb in the House of Commons .  When responding to the accusation, he stated: "What is the nature of your thoughts, gentlemen, when you say fuddle duddle or something like that?"

That incident spawned these hits ...

Here's another of my favourites by an artist named Michel Pagliaro.  This was a one hit wonder in the UK, and didn't peak in that chart until February of 1972, but in its homeland of Canada, it peaked the 2nd last week of December 1971 and was just one of many hits for this Quebec born singer.  The US sadly missed out on this one ...

With Christmas just around the corner, here's a legendary song that is well known all over the world, but something you may not know is that it was never a chart hit in the US.  This has re-charted several times over the years in both Canada and the UK among several other countries, and though it never reached the US Hot 100, a re-release in 1996 did reach #32 on the US Adult Contemporary Chart ...

Long before the days of youtube, whenever I heard this song on the radio, I had to guess at the title and always thought it was called "Keep a talkin to you". So back in the early 70s I was looking for the '45 of it and approached several record stores and asked if they knew a song called 'Keep a talkin to you".  It wasn't till a few years later when I found out the title and artist.  ;D

I adore the song, one of my favorite Canadian songs from the 1970s.

"You've Got a Friend" is a song from 1971, written by Carole King, and included in her album Tapestry and James Taylor's album Mud Slide Slim, which were recorded simultaneously in 1971 with shared musicians. Taylor's version was released as a single, and reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and number 4 on the UK Singles Chart.

1971, the year of my favourite song by The Stampeders ...

The Stampeders - Carry Me

And because I know some will do this, here is the best known song by The Stampeders (also from 1971), which was their biggest hit outside of Canada.  It was actually one of only 2 Top 40 hits they had in the US ...

The Stampeders - Sweet City Woman


That was before my time.  sheesh why couldn't I have been born in the late 1960s-mid 1970s.  I feel like I was born in the wrong decade.  :)

Here's the actual Sweet City Woman video.  :)

"Coat of Many Colors" is a song written and recorded by American country music singer Dolly Parton, which has been described on a number of occasions as her favorite song she has written. It was released in October 1971 as the second single and title track from the album Coat of Many Colors. She composed the song in 1969, while traveling with Porter Wagoner on a tour bus. (She explained in her 1994 memoir, My Life and Other Unfinished Business, because she could find no paper, as the song came to her, she wrote it on the back of a dry cleaning receipt from one of Wagoner's suits; when the song became a hit, Wagoner had the receipt framed.) She recorded the song in April 1971, making it the title song for her Coat of Many Colors album. The song reached #4 on the U.S. country singles charts. The song tells of how Parton's mother stitched together a coat for her daughter out of rags given to the family. As she sewed, she told her child the biblical story of Joseph and his Coat of Many Colors.

"Man in Black" (or "The Man in Black") is a protest song written and recorded by singer-songwriter Johnny Cash, originally released on his 1971 album of the same name. Cash himself was known as "The Man in Black" for his distinctive style of on-stage costuming. The lyrics are an after-the-fact explanation of this with the entire song as a protest statement against racism, the treatment of poor people by wealthy politicians, the condemnation of drug users and prisoners, and the war in Vietnam. In the intro to his first performance of the song, Johnny Cash revealed he had talked to some of the audience members from Vanderbilt University that weekend, and was inspired to write "Man in Black", revising it a few times before the concert on Wednesday. At the end of the song he received a standing ovation.
