Saturday Song-suasion 51: Hits from 1974

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

In the early 1970s the first Native-American rock band attained brief success. Recently, I was reminded of one of their one-hit wonder. Although this song never reached the #1 position, it was one of the top songs in 1974 resting at number 5 on the Billboard Top 100 list and remained on the charts for 24 week. I present to you, Redbone with Come and Get Your Love

Bald River Falls off Cherohala Skyway

Last week’s WW contribution was a view from the  Cherohala Skyway. This week, I am submitting for your pleasure another view that’s off the beaten path so to speak. Bald River Falls is situated about 4.5 off the Cherohala Skyway, but the drive is worth it. This photo is easily captured from your window, but I got out of the car before snapping my camera.

Being the somewhat perfectionist that I am, I try to incorporate musical inspiration to go along with my photo selection of the week. This doesn’t always work too well. Thus, I have decided a new routine in picking songs and that is to use musical talent from my favorite groups beginning with the letter of the alphabet. That being said, let me kick things off from the beginning. Now let’s flashback, Wayback Wednesdays style, A is for…

America

This 1974 song became this band’s 4th top-ten hit in the USA, spending three weeks in November at number four on the Billboard 100 Hits, just after ranking #1 in October on the Billboard easy listening chart.

My Teenage Rock n’ Roll Groove on 4M

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Welcome to Monday’s Music Moves Me! This week’s theme Ashley@ Dr. Pepper Diva suggested, “Music you listened to as a teenager” or if you wish you can keep with our original theme “Bloopers of any kind”.  It’s time to get this party on the show.

I’m not getting any younger but in my heart, I’ll be young forever. I decided to go with Ashley’s theme choice. In 1974, I was officially a teenager. I didn’t feel any different when I hit 13 and it’s funny I feel about the same today. Just like then I loved to dance, so let’s shake our bootie to these great 70s tunes!



 

These are only a few hits I listened to over and over and over again. You can check out more popular tunes from 1974, here.
