What's Going On?

Appropriate for Memorial Day.

I've been off the grid for the past ten days, but wanted to get a couple more 1971 songs in before the end of May. Very few 1971 songs better than this one.

Dreaming of the past

From one ex-Beatle to another

I can think of younger days

The BGs first #1 hit in the USA (that inexplicably wasn't a hit in the UK)

Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time

From one touchstone to another

Made up my mind make a new start

I love the "LED ZEPPLIN" banner at the beginning!

I've been unable to post to blogger for the past two days, so I might need to machine gun multiple posts this weekend to make up. A reminder that the year is 1971!

Hubcap diamond star halo

Get it on, bang a gong, get it on

When evening rolls around

and it's time to go to town, there you go.

And I won't forget to put roses on your grave

Definitely one of my favorite post-Brian Stones songs.

Where's your mama gone?

Before ABBA, there was Middle Of The Road
(doesn't Sally look like Frida?)

1971 was the year I discovered AM radio, so I give songs like "Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep" a lot more importance than they probably deserve.

I get my back into my living

I'm doing songs from 1971 for the month of May. Starting with the first song on Who's Next (even if you play the songs in alphabetical order).
