Subject: 1972: The Year in Music

Written By: whistledog on 12/09/13 at 8:49 pm

Here's a few nice ones to get you started :)

The English Congregation - Softly Whispering I Love You
In their native UK, they were known as The Congregation.  This song was a UK hit in 1971, but never peaked in North America until 1972

Melanie - The Nickel Song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAGeVtLOsYo


April Wine - You Could Have Been A Lady
A cover of a 1971 song by Hot Chocolate

Big number one in Britain that year - one of the first prominent uses of a newfangled thing called a synthesiser on a pop record...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QXbrS3Msgww

(Actually much better than Giorgio's original, in my opinion!)


Did someone say 'synthesiser on a pop record'? From later that same year...

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


And from the left side of left-field from that year...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72cEe1JKcSY

Became a hit from a very unlikely source - it never charted for ages until it was used as the theme for (wait for it!) a current affairs programme in Belgium!
After success there, it didn't take long for the thing to rampage up the charts here - the last #1 on the once-mighty Decca label...

#1 on the charts in 1972 for several weeks

Harry Nilsson - Without You


Recorded, of course, after he heard Badfinger's original (and thought it was the Beatles!)

If ever there were a tragic case of how the industry can chew you up and spit you out, then Badfinger's story is the most tragic of them all...

Speaking of whom...

That's one of my favourite songs of the 70s!  Somehow that song missed out on the American chart, but it did reach #8 in Canada.  It sits comfortably on the 70s album of my mp3.  The looks I get when I pull up to a stoplight and start screaming "MOULDY OLD DOUGH!"

I used to work with a guy who was originally from West Yorkshire, and he swore up and down that there was lyrics to this song.  I thought he was referring to the faint background voice and the "Mouldy Old Dough" lyric, but no, he told me there is a version that has actual lyrics.  Never been able to find that.  I think he was mistaken

To hear a lyrical version would be a first for me too! I think your colleague may have been hallucinating!

The Pigeon remain the only act containing a mother and son to hit the top here - Hilda (the mother) is the one vamping wildly on the piano...

Another mother/son act (The Partridge Family) nearly did it that year, but there was no stopping the lad when he was on his own...

1972 saw the formation here in Britain of UK Records, a vanity record label for Jonathan King...

It got off to a great start with the man himself (under the guise of Shag...ho, ho!) doing a cover of J. Bastos' 'Loop Di Love', a huge hit on the continent...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lhEdPbl73s


And then, a few months later, with a group he 'discovered' - arguably the label's biggest success!

"Speak Softly Love (Love Theme from The Godfather)" is a song written for The Godfather (1972), the first film in The Godfather trilogy. While its instrumental version is simply known as "The Godfather Love Theme", "Speak Softly Love" is the vocal version. The lyrics are by Larry Kusik but the music itself is by Nino Rota. The song was originally recorded by Andy Williams.

"All the Young Dudes" is a song written by David Bowie, originally recorded and released as a single by Mott the Hoople in 1972. NME editors Roy Carr and Charles Shaar Murray have described the track as "one of that rare breed: rock songs which hymn the solidarity of the disaffected without distress or sentimentality". In 2004, Rolling Stone rated "All the Young Dudes" No. 253 in its list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time and on its 2010 update was ranked at number 256. It is also one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll.

The original Mott the Hoople release had to be changed lyrically in order that it might be played on UK radio and TV. The line in the second verse: "Wendy's stealing clothes from Marks and Sparks" was a reference to UK retailer Marks & Spencer, also known by that colloquialism. As such, air play of the song in its original form would have breached broadcasting regulations relating to advertising in force at the time. The line was replaced with: "Wendy's stealing clothes from unlocked cars". Today, both versions are freely aired.

"Stuck in the Middle with You" (sometimes known as "Stuck in the Middle") is a song written by Gerry Rafferty and Joe Egan and originally performed by their band Stealers Wheel, released in 1972. The song was inspired by a real occasion when the record company and producers were conducting business across Rafferty and Egan at a restaurant table. Recorded at the Abbey Road Studios in London.

Gerry Rafferty was a great talent.  Too bad he died so young.

I liked his songs in later years such as "Baker Street" and "Right Down The Line".
