“Muskrat Love” was a hit in the 1970’s not once but twice–first by America in 1973 and then by Captain and Tennille in 1976!

1970's FM GoldI am an aficionado of 1970’s songs. I have over a thousand 70’s hits in my iTunes folder, almost all of which I can sing at a moment’s notice. (This talent does NOT endear me to my family.) I spent the last few years of high school–class of 1979–in South Florida listening to WSHE and WHYI and the occasional cassette tape, driving along to a blend of pop, rock, soul, disco and bizarre. (What else would you call Meatloaf’s Paradise by the Dashboard Light?) Some songs I can’t stand to hear today–anything from Hotel California makes me feel queasy–but many of them I still love.

Every few years I make a playlist called 70’s FM Gold. I include the good and the bad and the crazy.  I just finished making my current playlist and thought I’d share a sampling. I think of these songs as part of the soundtrack of my life. So, bring out your own musical memories for…

    Oh, where to start?!?!! “C’est La Vie” by Emerson Lake & Palmer, “For My Lady” by the Moody Blues, and “Turn the Page” by Bob Seger come to mind right now.

    I was only introduced to them after they broke up, but 70s rock for me is defined by Traffic – love, love, love Low Spark of High Heeled Boys — and the Boss. But radio rock is Bob Seeger and the Doobie Brothers. And, gee, no Abba on your 70s list?
