#a2zchallenge with the Eagles on Saturday Song-suasion #33

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

We are kicking off day 6 of the  April 2014 global event,  A to Z challenge. Out of the more than 2000 blog participants, I rake 1515. I am relatively one of the low gals on the ladder so to speak. Who pays attention to numbers anyhow? I plan to make up for my slow response by dazzling all that stop by.

My overall theme for this challenge is things I am learning A-Z, but this morning I will break away and share with you instead one of my favorite music groups from the alphabet prompt on Saturday Song-suasion.  Let’s give up for the Eagles!

It’s time to sit back and TAKE IT EASY…

 

I am not a WITCHY WOMAN…

 

and there is no reason to feel like you have to TAKE IT TO THE LIMIT…

 

 

Don’t worry, you will not find me hiding behind LYIN’ EYES…

 

All I want to do is give you THE BEST OF MY LOVE…

 

Do I give you a PEACEFUL EASY FEELING…

 

 *This is a re-post from August  24, 2013*

Which is your favorite Eagles tune? Do you like their old or new stuff best?

Saturday Song-susian #27 ~ Grand Funk Railroad

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

Earlier in the week, A Daft Scots Lass spotlighted a song from a 70s crazy popular American hard rock band. There’s a saying that goes, “If you remember the 70s, you didn’t live it.” Well, I am here to tell you I was there, remembering and loving the music!

However, as time goes by my memory begins to fade on who did what songs. I wanted to review the heydays of this group, so please raise your hands in the air and get ready to live or relive the sounds of Grand Funk Railroad!

First let me say, I really wanted to start with a song by Grand Funk Railroad from 1969, the band’s birth year, but none of their music resonated as being remotely familiar. I guess I was too young to take note. When the 70s rolled in, this hard rock bluesy sounding group were cranking out highly favorable tunes with the bands’ fans.

My clearest musical recollections of Grand Funk Railroad is from these selections…

One Bad Apple

Puritan's Pride Vitamins

In December 1970, The Osmonds recorded One Bad Apple landing it the #1 spot for five weeks on the Billboard’s Hot 100 Chart in 1971. This song was written by George Jackson with the Jackson 5 in minded. At the time of its debute many people thought it the Jackson 5. It wasn’t until later the Jackson 5 covered the popular tune.

 

They sound nearly identical, don’t they? Which is your favorite?

Mid to late 70s rockin’ down the house on 4M

Welcome to week #168 of

A few weeks back Vandy J was our spotlight dancer. For her theme choice this week, she wants to know What songs did you listen to in high school? I don’t know about you guys, although that’s been a lot of years ago for me I still find myself boogieing to those same tunes today. Let’s rock the house down to some mid to late 70s sounds!

My freshman year 1976-1977 of high school, I was more than likely dancing to these Paul McCartney and Grand Funk Railroad.

 

Our lovely hostesses, XmasDolly, would like to thank you for joining the party and as always JAmericanSpice, Stacy Uncorked, Just the stuff ya know & myself are happy that you came.

Now, it’s time to get our groove on with you so remember to link up and shake your bootie with the fellow rockin’ blogger buds below!

We aren’t music snobs if you have tunes to share that don’t fit in with our theme, then no problem! As long as you have music to share, then everything is cool coz all we want to do is dance with you! 

During my sophomore year from 1977-1978, I might have listened to songs by Andy Gibb and Lionel Richie.

 

 

As my sophomore year gave way to my junior year 1978-1979, these tunes were popular hits by ARS and the Queen of Disco.

 

 

Winding things up in 1979-1980 for my senior year, I can’t forget these fab hits by two outstanding female artists.
