Torn Between Two Lovers - Mary MacGregor

I agree that's crap. What's worse is that I remember it, so it musta been played to death at one time. Or maybe my mum bought it. She liked all that mushy stuff.

You must have a favourite from that year so we can cancel this one out.

1974 top 100

#1 Song - The Way We Were (Barbara Streisand)

Can't say I'm a fan - but only cause I never heard it before



best song on the top 100 list? Steve Miller of course!!!

Not crap. Subjective of course, but that is WAY better than the crap they churn out these days.

They call it music? It is not.

...this was popular the year i was born... if a guy ever said that junk to me, he'd be walkin with a limp for the rest of his life - unless he was kiddin and it was just kinky foreplay...





...i prefer SHAKE (rattle and roll) by The Stone Coyotes... couldnt find it on youtube but heres a link to their website where you can hear a clip and read the lyrics... they're an awesome band... i had the pleasure of conversing with barbara keith a few times... she's amazing...
