Renaming the thread -- as I'm going to update it from time to time...

As a child of the 70s (and late 60s), I was big fan of bubblegum music. This song certainly belongs to that genre. It only reached #20 on Billboard Charts. A different version from a British group made it to number 1 in the U.K (it's also on Youtube -- with the band performing for 'Top of the Pops', but failed to chart in the States. I heard it several months ago on an oldies channel and recall liking it -- though I had no idea what the title was or who was singing it. I recently purchased a new vehicle that has Sirius XM -- and this was on the 70s channel the other day. It's by a brother/sister act - Mac & Katie Kissoon (though if you can determine what Mac brought to the group in the way of vocals -- you're better than me).

It's very catchy -- as most bubblegum music is -- despite the somewhat inane lyrics. You can almost imagine this as a song playing while Scooby and the gang -- or Josie and the Pussycats attempt to evade a bad guy (loved those musical chase scenes).

Sirius 70s on 7 is becoming a bit of an addiction of mine. Here's a song I never heard before today...

Ffun by Con Funk Shun  Afro



Good Summer song.

I was very fascinated to find out that Punk Rock was actually invented by 3 black dudes from Detroit ( aka Motwon ) of all places.  Also, they invented it in the early 70s.  Fucking amazing!

The opening song is good. So were these guys popular in the punk scene? I really only knew the punk artists that found their way into the mainstream.

From what I understand, nobody really understood them.  They recorded the album, but no label would sign them.  'Punk' didn't exist yet, and people hated their name.  The masters just sat untouched in the one dudes house for decades.  They have only recently been 'discovered'.  Kind of a shame.

I saw this thread and reminded me of a Mrs. Nerd conversation recently. Mrs. Nerd is the more musically inclined and probably knows more about it than I do about toys, TV and movies put together. I was watching The Big Lebowski and asked if she knew who did the What Condition my Condition Was In song. She didn't and also didn't believe me when I said it was Kenny Rogers. We had to Google it. It is the only time I have done that in anything musically related with her.

The internet has been a truly awesome musical resource to me!  Finding out undecipherable lyrics in a matter of seconds has came in so handy!

Yeah, that was before he hit it big as a country pop/rock star with Lucille. He was leader singer for a group called First Edition. They had another midling hit named "Something's Burning". I was never a fan of 'Lucille', but did like the Gambler and his duet with Dottie West (Don't Fall in Love with a Dreamer).

I remember my mom playing some of these on 8-track when we were camping. I always liked Coward of the County.

Almost Saturday Night

You may have heard this song before -- as a cover by either Dave Edmunds or Karla DeVito (Danny's sister who toured with Meatloaf). But the original version was by none other than John Fogerty. I wasn't aware of the original version until recently -- as it only reached #78 on the top 100 way back in 1975. Hard to believe -- as it's a great feel good song.
