I can’t believe I hated this song when it was popular.

My son was walking around the house
singing this song yesterday, which immediately

He assured me that they did not, and that he
in fact just really likes the song.
Album: Second Helping
Stevie Nicks - Edge of Seventeen (Album Version) 1982
Album: Bella Donna
Janis Joplin - Me & Bobby McGee (Album Version) 1971
This streak of 1971 songs is not intentional.
Just a good year for music I guess.
Rod Stewart - Reason to Believe (Album Version) 1971
This was the “B” side of the Maggie May single.
**Apologies to my followers under the age of 30
for whom the concept of a physical single record
carries roughly the relevance of Eli Whitney’s Cotton Gin.
Album: Every Picture Tells a Story
The Who - Behind Blue Eyes (Album Version) 1971
"But my dreams.. they aren’t as empty
as my conscience seems to be”
Album: Who’s Next (FYPM nominee for best album cover ever)
Christina Aguilera, Pink, Lil’ Kim, Mya - Lady Marmalade (Soundtrack Version) 2001
This was the first time I took notice
of how good Aguilera’s voice is…
When she belts “Hey, Hey HEEEYYYYYYY-AAAAA”
I thought my speakers would explode.

Mya is pretty cute though.
Soundtrack: Moulin Rouge

from the ice inside your soul”

It just seems like everything about this song is perfect:
The Marching Drum groove at the start, the lyrics,
the way she sounds like she’s lying on a bathroom floor…
Rush - YYZ (Album Version) 1981
I’m not usually one for instrumental songs.
But here’s a track that falls in the exception category.
I think all men are born to love Rush,
some just don’t know it yet.
