Subject: Warped's Classic Rock Song Of The Day

Written By: warped on 11/27/12 at 2:48 pm

I’m gonna post a Classic Rock Song Of The Day, and try to do it on a daily basis.

Most of the songs will be from the late 1960s and 1970s, and perhaps some 1980s songs might creep in, you never know.  :D

The first song I have chosen is “Gimme Shelter ~ Rolling Stones” from 1969. Some of you might have had the “Let it Bleed” album, where this song is from.  Merry Clayton is the female vocalist.

It’s one of those songs for me that fall into the category -> The louder I play it, the better it sounds.  ;D        IMO one of their best songs.

I had "Let It Bleed" on cassette some 20 years ago and I really liked it.

They almost never play this on classic rock stations but it's one of my favorite tracks off the album:

I find the "30 second" instroduction of the song (Monkey Man), one of the finest introductions of any song. Just gives you a feel that you are in a bar, cozy crowd, and the band is playing right in front of you....nice....

A very good song indeed!  There was a really great cover of that by Frankie Goes to Hollywood in 1985.  For them, it was just an album track, but when they made their debut in America, they performed it on "Saturday Night Live" because they were not allowed to sing "Relax"

Yardbyrds ~ For your love

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2LSSgQMc2E

Wow. A band that once had Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and Jimmy Page as their guitarists (but not at the same time) “For you love” was one of their earlier tunes, and it’s my favourite from the Yardbyrds. It had Clapton playing on the track, Beck & Page had not entered the picture yet.
This song hit the charts in 1965. Was written by a non-Yardbyrds band member Graham Gouldman, he also wrote "Bus Stop" for the Hollies and later became a band member of 10CC.

The Kinks ~ Lola

The Kinks were one of the many British Invasion bands to bring us more great music from the  U.K.  Written by the Kinks "Ray Davies", it's a song about this girl...umm..guy...called Lola. Apparently he was inspired to write this song after a conversation with his band manager.

"In his apartment, Robert (band manager) had been dancing with this black woman, and he said, ‘I’m really onto a thing here.’ And it was okay until we left at six in the morning and then I said, ‘Have you seen the stubble?’ He said ‘Yeah,’ but he was too drunk to care, I think".

Although we used to sing "School's out" often (on the last day of school during the late 1970s), this one is my favorite Alice Cooper song. From way back in winter 1970.

The song was parodied in the mid-1980's by Weird Al, as "Yoda" (from his 1985 album, Dare To Be Stupid); the opening riff sounds almost exactly the same as in the original.

ELP were a great progressive rock group, probably best know for their song "Lucky Man".
Karn Evil 9 is from their album "Brain salad surgery". ELP was able to combine hard rock with progressive rock and classical music, all rolled into one. In the mid 70s they were as popular any other band out there.

For the longest time, I never knew the title of this song. In the days before the internet, it was more difficult to find the same of a song, unless the DJ said it. 
Stephen Stills wrote this song in 1966. Later on he'd join Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young.

This song became known as a protest song, during the Vietnam war. It's a classic song.

The Cars ~ Just what I needed


When I first heard this song on the radio in the summer of 1978, it really stood out. I loved the sound of it. I was hoping at that time that they weren't a "One-hit wonder", and they weren't. From their debut album.

And that track still gets played on the radio today. Particularly on stations that specialize in rock music.

Several years back, one radio station I used to listen to would do an 80's night every Friday...and sometimes they would sneak in some songs from the late 70's, including this one (and I was always baffled as to why).

warped--Do you have Odessey and Oracle in your album collection? If not I highly recommend it, it's a forgotten masterpiece. Here's just one example:

What's interesting about the Zombies is that although they had a couple hits in 1965 ("She's Not There," "Tell Her No") they never really took off as much as the other English groups and they recorded Odessey and Oracle as a last-ditch effort at superstardom. Unfortunately, when released in 1968 it sold poorly and the Zombies broke up not long afterward.  "Time Of The Season" didn't become a hit in the US and Canada until 1969, a year after the group disbanded.

This is probably Elton John's magnum opus, and a big part of the reason why is that he had (and still has) a killer backing band full of ace musicians.

Boston ~ Peace of Mind

"Now you're climbin' to the top of the company ladder, hope it doesn't take too long
Can't ya see there'll come a day when it won't matter, come a day when you'll be gone...
I understand about indecision, but I don't care if I get behind
People livin' in competition, all I want is to have my peace of mind"

Love those lyrics.  Boston's debut album had several great songs and this is just one of them. Great guitar work here.
Just a good rock & roll song. They don't make them like this anymore.

Lou Reed. After he left the Velvet Underground, this was his most famous song. It's a song about transexuals, drugs, prostitutes. I love the sax at the end of the song. It's a song that caught your ear when you listened carefully to the lyrics.

First true CANCON entry in this topic. Neil had been performing since the 1960s and keeps on rocking! This is one of his better known songs, the album "Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere" was released in 1969 and this single (Cinnamon Girl) in 1970. 1970 was a good year for Neil, his "After the gold rush" album was relased later that year, my favorite of his.
I wrote a parody (way back) of this song called "I want a date with that chick Linda Purl"  :D

Great guitar riff to begin the song.

Badge is a song written by Eric Clapton and Beatle George Harrison (they were friends. If you recall, Eric played guitar on the track "While my guitar gently weeps)

From George: "I helped Eric write 'Badge' you know. Each of them had to come up with a song for that Goodbye Cream album and Eric didn't have his written. We were working across from each other and I was writing the lyrics down and we came to the middle part so I wrote 'Bridge.' Eric read it upside down and cracked up laughing-- 'What's BADGE?' he said. After that, Ringo walked in drunk and gave us that line about the swans living in the park."

Love those stories. Badge is my favorite "Cream" song.

Triumph is a Canadian band, popular in the very late 1970s and early 1980s. Some of you may not even know this song, but it's considered a Rock classic in Canada.

"I'm young, I'm wild and I'm free, I got the magic power of the music in me"

Have a listen.

April Wine ~  Could Have Been A Lady  (1972)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MST4A8-7DQ

More Canadian content for today. April Wine was formed back in 1969 in the Maritimes and relocated to Montreal the next year. They've had lots of success in Canada. Miles Goodwin is a wonderful singer.  This is one of the few early April Wine tunes that even made the US charts. April Wine is my 2nd favorite Canadian band (after the Guess Who)
This song makes you drive a little faster when you are on the road. Lots of energy.

by gum, i'm gonna stir up controversy if it kills me: I'm still pro-Stairway. I'm not even tired of it. In fact, I think the vogue for hating on Stairway is based almost solely on the pointing-at-the-"No-Stairway"-sign joke in "Wayne's World," and the related, annoying habit of 15-year-old boys to bang out those first few chords on guitar all the time under the assumption it would instantly get them laid. Well, it's not the song's fault if a bunch of pimply-faced boys imprinted on it like baby ducks! It's a great song.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XwqMKf7r7Xg

"I've been drivin' all night, my hand's wet on the wheel
There's a voice in my head, that drives my heel
It's my baby callin', says, "I need you here"
And it's half past four, and I'm shifting gear"

Ah, what a great driving tune.

I actually like Black Sabbath quite a bit but Iron Man isn't one of my favorites. Sometimes they had a thoughtful, compelling minimalism thing going, almost a bit like a more gainy, mere sentimental version of The Police, and sometimes it was just doggerel. Most of the hits, like War Pigs and Iron Man, I'm not a big fan of, mostly because you get tired of them very easily because there's not much to them. I kinda prefer their lesser-knowns and B-sides.

Gotta admit that Bob Segar song used to drive me up the wall back in the day. The '70s, in retrospect, were the best era ever for combo rock acts, and here comes this guy saying he wants to go back to Rock Around the Clock and You Ain't Nothin' But a Hound Dog. He was also the guy whose arguably biggest song ever was about what a pain it was to go out on tour. well here's an idea, bob: don't sing the song about going on tour, and then you won't have to GO on tour, and then you won't have to endure the angst and loneliness that led to the song!

Bah, bob segar. I've never been much of a fan.

Don't want to pile on Bob Seger, but whenever I hear the first 8 notes of "Old Time Rock N' Roll" I immediately change the station. I've just heard it way too many times and could care less if I ever hear it again.

On the other hand, I love this song, especially the way the drums keep slamming along non-stop:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2aBOTNGWMY

The clip is from a show called "Happening '69" (back in the innocent days when the phrase "happening 69" wouldn't even cause so much as a snicker) hosted by Paul Revere and the Raiders. Paul Revere does the intro.

Seger looks like he's about 17 here, and for crying out loud get the man a mic stand already! ::)

That's how I feel about some other classic songs too. "Ramblin gambling man" is another good song by Bob. One of my favorite live albums is "Nine Tonight" by Bob Seger, a 1981 album. "Mainstreet", "Feel like a number", "Trying to live my life without you" and others. I'm not that much of a fan of live albums. This one I like.

Great guitar riff to open the song, classic Richards. This was during the Stones "Mick Taylor" period, they came up with lots of really good rock and roll songs on Sticky Fingers & Exile on Main Street.  This track is from "Sticky Fingers". If you had the album (like I did), it's the one with the zipper on the front.

The guitar work at the end of the song belongs to Mick Taylor.

They were British?! That's amazing! I totally lumped them in with the Ted Nugent/Pat Travers genre of blues-based California-style guitar rock.

Blue Cheer - Summertime Blues (1968)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YXcYZsqkZ-g

I like their version of 'Summertime Blues". It's one of the first songs to ever make the pop charts that can be classified as "Heavy Metal". I love the guitar work on here. Very Hendrix like in my opinion.

Creedence Clearwater Revival ~ Down On The Corner (1969)

"Down On The Corner, out in the street, Willy and the Poor boys are playin', bring a nickel...tap your feet."

Such a fine song to sing along to, or tap your feet. This song often lifts me up when I am down, it has a good vibe to it, a "morphic field" about it.

Indeed he does. And he was actually 9 then, as he didn't turn 10 till November. And from what I have read, the song's content has nothing to do with his own life, but rather that of Jim Vallance, who co-wrote the song.

used to cover this in a band i played in. i hated this song when it got airplay but i enjoyed covering it 20-odd years later. it gets such a strong reaction from people and it's so simple but honest that it won me over.

We only got 1 album out of those guys.  It was essentially "Cream", but replace Jack Bruce with Winwood  ;D
Winwood and Baker created another band soon after but Winwood left and then (I think) he joined Traffic, or something like that.

The Sweet were an amazing glam rock band. My dad and uncle loved them and I got influenced as a kid. Teenage Rampage, Little Willy, Blockbuster, Hell Raiser, Fox on the Run and Wig Wam Bam are probably more amazing to hear now than back then because the energy they had back then came with the era and seems to be sadly lacking nowadays.

Ballroom Blitz is a good choice. :)

Procol Harum ~ Conquistador (1972)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F945LQG6fuA

This live version was recorded in Edmonton Alberta (With the Edmonton symphony orchestra). It's majestic, ancient, historical, Iberian, meaningful, grandiose and powerful.

"Conquistador there is no time, I must pay my respect
And though I came to jeer at you, I leave now with regret
And as the gloom begins to fall , I see there is no, only all
And though you came with sword held high , You did not conquer, only die "
nice one warped, one of my favorites. if I had to put together a compilation for early 70's rock, this one would be on it. it got tons of airplay back then. it's very dramatic

I love this song because it had so much energy, and it's so self-relective, it gives me chills.

"Looking out at the road rushing under my wheels
I don't know how to tell you all just how crazy this life feels
Look around for the friends that I used to turn to to pull me through
Looking into their eyes I see them running too"

Often my life feels like I'm running on empty, but I just keep going. This song helps.  :)

When we went to see her in concert a few years ago, when she sang this song, she said that one line she REALLY HATES and refused to sing it. She told the audience, "You know the words, YOU sing it." So we did.

From Ozzy's first solo album. I love the guitar on it. Randy Rhoads' work is exceptional. Another song I like to crank up to "11".

All aboard!


Now this is rock!

38 special ~ Caught up in you

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

A good rock song from the early 1980s. One of the guys who formed "38 special" was Donnie Van Zant, brother of Ronnie Van Zant, singer of Lynyrd Skynyrd who died in a plane crash in 1977.

Derek and the Dominos ~Layla

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WUdlaLWSVM

From all the songs Eric Clapton ever wrote/performed, this one is my favorite. The desperate wild aggression of the first part, with the awesome beauty of the 2nd half. Apparently the song was inspired by Clapton's then unrequited love for Pattie Boyd  (Beatle George Harrison's wife)

Just listening to Duane Allman & Clapton go all out in their guitar solos is epic. This song is a masterpiece.

During the course of their relationship, Mick Jones would frequently take the train across town to see his girlfriend Viv Albertine. Alas, his efforts were often fruitless as the meetings would seldom see Jones departing a 'satisfied' and happy man...hence, the train ride having been an effort in Vain."

From the album "Close to the edge".  A great progressive rock track. Yes was just amazing at incorporating rock, jazz and they played their instruments so well. Steve Howe (guitar) & Rick Wakeman (keyboards).  I'm guessing many here will have never heard of this song before, although they heard of the band because of their 80s "90125". If you want to hear the best of Yes, I suggest you listen to their early 1970s material.

Saw them in concert several years ago-but we were very disappointed. The acoustics were awful which made them sound awful. The people next to us left after they only played a couple of songs. I hate to say it but it was one of the worst concerts I had been to. It was a shame for a great band.

Max Webster ~ High Class In Borrowed Shoes (1977)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aq8GoJUzvPs

Another Canadian song that gets lots of airplay on the radio. A great rockin' sound from Max Webster, a Toronto band that probably is best known for their 1979 album "A Million Vacations" which just about everyone had a copy of in high school back then.

Not much, I'm afraid. They were a good Toronto band and became famous around the same time another Toronto band did (Rush). They were overshadowed by Rush. There were some concerts that Max Webster opened for Rush.  They toured together at times. I like Max Webster much more than I like Rush. Can't tolerate Geddy Lee's voice. I only like Rush's instrumental stuff and their songs (until Geddy Lee starts to sing  ;D)

I know most in the USA never heard of them. You missed out on a great band.
Once on a Toronto rock radio station back in 1979 or 1980, they beat out "The Beatles" in a battle of the bands contest. Yup. They had lots of fans. Mnay of my high school mates preferred Max Webster over the Stones or The Beatles.  I'd wager they were as popular in Toronto between 1977 and 1980 as much as any Canadian band/artist during that time, except for Rush. I know... I was there.

Traffic ~ Dear Mr.Fantasy

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vxVlN-LzIks

Sung by a very young Steve Winwood. He wasn't even 20 yet.  Traffic was a 60s band that you just don't hear enough in this country, maybe America too. This is one of their best songs.  Winwood (after Trafiic and Blind Faith) had a decent solo career.  Playing bass & harmonica on this song is Dave Mason (he had a hit in the 70s 'We just disagree")

I haven't been keeping up with this thread though I should because you've been posting some great songs.
I have a little anecdote for this particular tune. One of my favorites by the way.

One night back in '78 I was at a friends house. It was the friend we all had, his house was the party house.
Anyway, we were in his backyard doing things of questionable legality and having a good time. He was a huge
Stones fan so that is what was usually on the turntable. He had a beat up garage with, and I kid you not, a red
door. After a late night we woke up early to go over his house to finish off the rest of the questionable legality
thing and there he was...covered in paint from head to toe and the once red door was now black. He looked at
us and said, "Mick told me to do it." Ah, those were the days.

Nice.      The song reminds me of the summer of 1982. My summer job was to water lawns around a large apartment complex and it's greenhouse. too.  There was a lady who used to tan outside ever so often...and she looked a little like David Bowie did in the early 70s. She'd lie there, drink beer, smoke her cigarettes...and the song "Rebel, Rebel" came into my head. I had just bought my first walkman too and I'd listen to Bowie (this song and others from the early 70s) when I'd get close to her area while watering lawns.
Can't hear this song anymore without thinking of her, even if it's been 30+ years.

Buffalo Springfield is know for their song "For What It's Worth", but this one is so good too. Neil Young & Stephen Stills before CSNY. A really good rock and roll song. Guitar riff similar to the Rolling Stones "Satisfaction" IMO.

From wiki:

The tune is perhaps most famous as the opening theme to the original BBC TV show Top Gear, and for the 2002 format of the show, albeit a modernised cover version. In one episode, James May recreated the tune using nothing but exhaust notes from several cars, while in another episode the tune in its full version was heard to be played over the radio (most likely Sacramento Area radio) of the cars which the three presenters tested in America (the Chevrolet Corvette C6 ZR1, the Dodge Challenger 2008 and the Cadillac CTS-V). During the 18th series of the show, ex Guns 'N' Roses guitarist Slash played his version of the tune. "Jessica" is also used for most international versions of Top Gear, including the US version, which used it as its theme only during the first season.

This song comes off of the album War. I bought the album back in the '80s. Yeah, I didn't like the subject of the title but I loved the music-especially New Year's Day-which is what I listened to the most on the album. Then one day-some time in the '90s, I was listening to the album-the ENTIRE album and especially THIS song, it finally hit me. They weren't advocating war-they were PROTESTING it!!!!  :o :o :o  Ok, so I was a bit naive (or stupid) in the '80s.  :D ;D ;D ;D

The Monks were a UK band and had huge success in Canada with songs like this one, “Drugs in my Pocket”. “Johnny Be Rotten” “Love in stereo” and  “I ain’t getting any”.  Look for these songs on youtube, they are really good. A combination of New Wave and Punk Rock.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vr1bz877zE0

Byrds great cover of Bob Dylan's song. Roger even sounds like Dylan  ;D, but with that special "Byrds" musical sound makes it so much better.

"Yes, my guard stood hard when abstract threats, too noble to neglect,
Deceived me into thinking I had something to protect
Good and bad, I define these terms, quiite clear, no doubt somehow
Ahh, but I was so much older then, I'm younger than that now"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mb3iPP-tHdA

A song everyone here knows. It's overplayed on the radio. There's a reason though. It's such a great song!  Great tune, Love the hammond organ and the bizarre lyrics.



I cannot hear this song without thinking of the 10th Kingdom with the singing mushrooms. Of course when you listen to the lyrics, it does sound like some kind of LSD trip-not saying that I would really know since I have never tried LSD.

Sure, no problem. Everyone has different tastes in music. There are MANY famous artists that I never saw any appeal to: Micheal Jackson, Bon Jovi, Mariah Carey, Nirvana, lots of hair bands, disco artists, all rap and hip hop artists (to name a few). Never understood why any of them were famous.

I think this is a great choice.The Trees has always been one of my favorite Rush tunes even though it has been rumored
to be about how Canadians feel about Americans. Neil Peart has continuously stated the song was inspired by a cartoon
but it still screams of anti-socialistic behavior, the have-nots blaming the haves for their problems. To a point where the
whole system fails from their inability to compromise.

I like the song for different reasons, I love the different time signatures. I like how the 6/8 and, the unusual, 5/4 time
signatures are incorporated in the usual 4/4.

"The trees" is one of my favorites as well. I have heard stories as to what the song means. One story I heard on the radio is Neil Peart (the drummer) wrote about a cartoon he saw, or about a class vs class struggle (Maple Vs Oak). I have never heard that it was how Canadians feel about Americans before.

Yesterday really was a Stevie Nicks/Fleetwood Mac day. At our barbecue, we started talking about her/them. And then last night I was "scanning the band" and came across Fleetwood Mac in concert on some network that I didn't even know we had. I only watched it for about 15 minutes or so because it was getting late and I didn't want to stay up just to watch it but within that time, they did do THIS song. So, I guess it truly was the Song of the Day.

Give a Little Bit ~ Supertramp (1977)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0dfilmbdFFk

Hard to find studio versions of Supertramp's music on youtube, so I got a Roger Hodgson one here.

A happy tune. One of Supertramp's better known songs outside of the songs from "Breakfast In America"


I like this song.

The Wall: For me this was the start of the downfall of Pink Floyd. I am not a fan of anything by Floyd after this album. Even this
album is a mix for me. Comfortably Numb and side 4 is it for me, my wife is side one.

Comfortably Numb and the Philadelphia connection: (From Songfacts.com)

In a radio interview around 1980 with Jim Ladd from KLOS in Los Angeles, Waters said part of the song is about the time he got hepatitis but didn't know it. Pink Floyd had to do a show that night in Philadelphia, and the doctor Roger saw gave him a sedative to help the pain, thinking it was a stomach disorder. At the show, Roger's hands were numb "like two toy balloons." He was unable to focus, but also realized the fans didn't care because they were so busy screaming, hence "comfortably" numb. He said most of The Wall is about alienation between the audience and band.
Exploring further, Mojo asked Waters about the line, "That'll keep you going through the show," referring to getting medicated before going on-stage. He explained: "That comes from a specific show at the Spectrum in Philadelphia (June 29, 1977). I had stomach cramps so bad that I thought I wasn't able to go on. A doctor backstage gave me a shot of something that I swear to God would have killed a f---ing elephant. I did the whole show hardly able to raise my hand above my knee. He said it was a muscular relaxant. But it rendered me almost insensible. It was so bad that at the end of the show, the audience was baying for more. I couldn't do it. They did the encore about me."


I was at that show, and probably just as Comfortably Numb.  ;D

Saw Bryan Adams in concert a few years ago. When I saw he was going to be in the area, I said to Carlos, "We ARE going" not, "Do you wanna go?" It was his "Bare Bones" tour-just him with his guitar & a piano player-no one else. It was VERY enjoyable because the theatre is very small and if he had his full band, it would just be too overpowering for our aging ears. One of the best concerts I had been to in my life.

My brothers were in junior high (maybe high school) when they bought that album. It's cool that I can remember when all these seminal 70's albums came out. We'd go to church on Sundays and then afterwards we'd go shopping at this drugstore down the street and my brothers and sisters would peruse all the new albums. I can remember when they bought Kiss: Alive, Leftoverature by Kansas, Hotel California, Rumours, Silk Degrees by Boz Scaggs, Frampton Comes Alive, and so many others.

This song TOTALLY takes me back to high school. I was ALWAYS the New Kid in Town. Went to one school for 9th grade-which was actually a jr. high, another for 10th & 11th-and a third one for my senior year. Since I started school at the age of 5, I went to 11 different school before graduating-and that doesn't include college. In 5th grade I went to 3 different schools. Yeah, it sucked-that is the reason why some of my education was lacking. I always thought this song was written about me.  :D ;D ;D ;D

Linda Ronstadt ~ Long Long Time (1970)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKAtM9xS-fA

I listened to this song about 20 times yesterday  :D  so I thought I'd share it. It's my favorite Linda Ronstadt song. Don't know why, the song always gives me chills and rips my heart out at the same time. She was so great at torch songs. And she was so amazingly gorgeous too.
Millions of guys were in love with her during the 1970s.

"Bay-ay-be-ee"  8)

The Band ~ I Shall Be Released

Not their most famous song, but my favorite of theirs, and one of my all-time favorites. Something about this song just speaks to me. What I hear: One day...you shall be released for your pains and sorrows and as a prisoner of your own mind and body. Maybe it's a crime you did and were framed for. You shall be released. Maybe it's a heroin addiction you can't overcome. You shall be released.

I feel the singer's pain.  :(

My memory of it was I was with two of my sisters and a whole bunch of friends. (Actually, it was a neighborhood "club" that we started-but didn't last very long.). We started singing this song and once we got past the line "was a good friend of mine" no one knew the next line-except me. Yeah, I was the youngest in the group and I was so proud to be the only one who knew it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9shvi2T_90

She is just about my favorite female vocalist of all time. She has such a beautiful voice. She can sing pop, rock, country, torch songs, Spanish songs so effortlessly. She would sound great singing the phone book...or the dictionary.

Just found out she was diagnosed with Parkinson's..so she can't sing anymore. What a terrible loss.

The Five Man Electrical band had many hits in Canada, and it's main lead singer (Les Emmerson) also had some solo hits here, but I think this is their best song.

Ah, I just checked why. It was #1 in Australia and New Zealand, #13 in Canada and only made it to #53 in America.  In the several "80s music threads" that whistledog created recently, about 75% of the songs Howard posts (usually Funk/disco R&B stuff) I never heard of, maybe those songs did well in America, but I don't think that genre had much success on the Canadian charts.

Another great Led Zeppelin song. Nobody could ever touch these guys when it came to loud rock. These guys were the only band at my High School that 100% of the people liked.  Not everyone liked the Beatles or Stones (There were a couple of guys who didn't). But everyone liked Zeppelin.

What could have been our high school musical motto "Love Zeppelin, hate Disco"  ;D

This song came out just before Christmas exams at University in 1984. At the time I was quite interested in a really nice girl. This song was going through my head often at the time.  Just before Christmas holidays, she asked me to go to Florida with her..during Christmas/New years.  I kinda panicked and wondered what would happen if I did, so I said no.  She was a little surprised at my answer.

E.L.O ~ Can't Get It Out of My Head

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qe936dnLBHw

This is my favorite E.L.O song. It's very Beatlesque. E.L.O had their own distinctive sound in the 70s and early 80s.  Great band.
