Those crappy 70’s songs!

Wanted: Male volunteers FROM the studio audience.
Because: There are four very SADISTIC women running rampant on this site in dire need of a serious SPANKING!

Remember the 70’s? The sun shined so damn bright everyone had to squint? Everything was yellow and/or orange? The goddamned “happy face guy”????

Remember when I had Skarlet banned for life when she got us all singing “Hanker for a hunka cheese” for days?????

Well, now there are comments all over with REALLY bad songs FROM the 70’s. HELP!!!! Everything FROM “Three Dog Night” to “The Captain and Tennile”.

I’m looking at a CD here that I had to buy for my wife because “Run Joey Run” was on it:

“Songs FROM this era (early 70’s) were often depressing, and found the main characters in the story dead by the end of the song. Perhaps this was a contributing factor in the high rate of suicides during that time.”

YA THINK???? Oh and something else, you think your big sister was dropping acid, and your parents were smoking weed for any reason in particular?

Sure… they were hoping to stay stoned until the 80’s!

So let’s purge the fixation here… what is your list of some of the WORST SONGS of the ’70’s?

  1. So many nights I sit by my window
    Waiting for someone to sing me his song
    So many dreams I kept deep inside me
    Alone in the dark but now
    You’ve come along

    You light up my life
    You give me hope
    To carry on
    You light up my days
    and fill my nights with song

    Rollin’ at sea, adrift on the water
    Could it be finally I’m turning for home?
    Finally, a chance to say hey,
    I love You
    Never again to be all alone

    You light up my life
    You give me hope
    To carry on
    You light up my days
    and fill my nights with song

    You light up my life
    You give me hope
    To carry on
    You light up my days
    and fill my nights with song

    It can’t be wrong
    When it feels so right
    ‘Cause You
    You light up my life

  2. LMAO! So now you WANT the songs, eh? 🙂

    I’ve got a perfect suicidal song for you to start off with 🙂

    Alone Again, Naturally by Gilbert O’Sullivan

    Happy Happy Joy, Joy.

    Oh – and I’d like to thank YOU for again reminding me of the hanker for a hunka cheese thing, which, is once again, running rampant in MY head! Paybacks are a bitch, ain’t they? 😉

  3. *groaning at the two of you*
    Makes sense since “You Light Up My Life” was the #1 song of the decade… it had to make the list.

    Here’s one that throws me in a depressive funk every time…

    B-B-B-BENNY AND THE JETS!

  4. LOL!!!! Can I have a FEMALE volunteer to Spank NICO for that piece of blasphemy????

    Actually “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart”, and “I Started A Joke”…. ick. I can’t hear any Bee Gees pre-“Jive Talking”

  5. Damn, Solonor… I like half of those songs! “Thin Lizzy – The Boys Are Back In Town”???? That’s a classic!

    But I see a load on that list that I’d go into convulsions:
    “Leo Sayer – You Make Me Feel Like Dancin’ ” – BLEARGGH!
    “C.W. McCall – Convoy” – *twitch* *twitch*
    Neil Diamond – *slight epileptic siezure*
    No Eagles made the list…. so you ain’t too bad of a guy after all. :0)
    Neither did the Bee Gees…. you truly ROCK Solonor!

    I’ll get you a guy Nico…. but you’ll have to break the news to the line of girls around the block (talk about rough! heh heh).

  6. Billy, don’t be a hero, don’t be a fool with your life
    Billy, don’t be a hero, come back and make me your wife
    and as he started to go, she said Billy keep your head low-o-o
    Billy, don’t be a hero, come back to me.

    *volunteers to spank Nico so long as no clothes are involved*

  7. I have absolutely never heard Afternoon Delight by the Starland Vocal Band in my life… ack, ack, ack!
    It may not be depressing, but you’ll sure want top open your wrists after it, kinda like eating a 5kg bag of M and Ms with cheese and garlic dip

  8. Solonor! That list is hilarious! I was thinking of Rhinestone Cowboy for my next installment. 🙂

    But I got another that didn’t make your list and was one of Faith’s favorites back in the day:. Ready?

    Don’t Give Up On Us Baby, by David Soul a/k/a Hutch.

    *gagging now*

  9. we’re still worth one more try, I know we put our last one by. It’s written in the moonlight and on the stars, we can’t change ours……

  10. Other songs that drag me back to the “wretched era™”, and makes me queasy:
    “Saturday In The Park”, “Colour My World”, & “25 (or 6 to 4)” by Chicago (they were awesome in the 80’s)
    “Daniel” – Elton John
    “Ventura Highway” &
    “Horse with no name” – America
    “If you could read my mind” – Gordon Lightfoot
    “Time in a bottle” – Jim Croce
    “Get Down” – (Another Gilbert O’Sullivan suicide-fest)
    “Margaritaville” – Jimmy Buffett
    “Wildfire” – Michael Murphy (I have a love/hate relationship with this song.)
    “I’m not in love” – 10cc

    And songs guaranteed to hurl me out an open window…
    “Killing Me Softly With His Song” – Roberta Flack
    “The Night Chicago Died” – Paper Lace
    *** “Billy Don’t Be A Hero” – Bo Donaldson & the Heywoods
    *** Aqualung – Jethro Tull

  11. Just had to add…anything by Bill Withers (yawn)…

    Here’s part of his VH1 bio:

    He recorded demos at night while working at the Boeing aircraft company where he made toilet seats.
