Okay, I’m back with an another exhaustive Spotify playlist. This one started out life because one of my wife’s co-workers really liked Indiana Wants Me by R Dean Taylor and wanted to hear “more songs like that”. What I took that to mean was early 70s pop, heavy on the harmonies and melodramatics, perhaps evoking the daytime Radio 1 and 2 playlists.
For no real reason, the playlist has since taken onboard some “serious” songs, long efforts by Traffic and Elton John. But, for the most part, this a place for songs such as Me And You And A Dog Named Boo or Gypsies Tramps And Thieves, the kind of turntable hits that demographic shifts mean you will never hear on the radio these days.
So, has anyone go some suggestions for songs that would sit happily among these Teachers, Learners And Incense Burners? Let’s get a bit Bob Stanley, and celebrate the 70s radio of our imagination.
