On and on the songs roll on

And soon you are caught up

Stephen Bishop is also responsible for the theme from "Animal House",
and one of the funniest scenes in the movie (IMO).

I may be climbing on rainbows

but baby here goes..

Because of the name of the band, I used to think this song was about making bread.
"Bread - Make It With You" = I want to make bread with you.
It makes perfect sense when you're eight!

Just like Andy and McCoo

"This is his first Solid Gold hit, and we're sure he'll have many more.."

Or maybe not. Bertie fickin Higgins, that's who

Electric word life

It means forever and that's a mighty long time.

Angel in the shape of something wild

Probably too hard for soft rock.

Like a worn-out recording of a favorite song

Come with me and escape.

Dan Seals was never a member of Seals & Crofts

It was his brother Jim and Dash Crofts.

How did they create such a crunchy groove with an acoustic guitar & a mandolin?

It happens all the time this crazy love of mine

Country rock or soft rock. You make the call..

The Biggest Part Of Me

Wash away the past so we may start anew.

Iimmpeccable arrangements by soft rock renegades

"In the early '70s, rock music mellowed out. Singer-songwriters, acoustic guitars, and sun-soaked melodies took over the airwaves and the sound of soft rock was born."

What I'm trying to achieve is the first volume of this series ("Summer Breeze") without the bad 80s songs, and fewer songs by white people.

You will be soft rocked by me

Trying to come up with a theme for September blogging, I've gone back to assembling my "Ultimate Collection of 70s Soft Rock (as seen on TV)".

I have a handful of songs picked, and here's what I'm aiming for.

You will be soft rocked by me
I use the passive voice to show how gentle I'll be
When I soft rock you
You will know it's true
That you've never been soft rocked 'til you've been soft rocked by me
