This is a disc from the Time/Life AM Gold CD series. As seen on TV.
- Brother Louie - Stories: Peaked at #1 in August 1973. In the '70s, I was unaware that this was a controversial song about an interracial love affair, so I would just sing along with the lyrics. Still like it.
- Brandy (You're a Fine Girl) - Looking Glass: Peaked at #1 in August 1972. I was indifferent to this song. Still am.
- These Eyes - The Guess Who: Peaked at #6 in May 1969. I've always liked this song.
- Sara Smile - Daryl Hall and John Oates: Peaked at #4 in 1976. Since I didn't like ballads when I was 10, I didn't appreciate this song at the time, but now I can enjoy it. Very soulful.
- Afternoon Delight - Starland Vocal Band: Peaked at #1 in July 1976. I had no idea what afternoon delight was back then, so, again, I would just belt out the lyrics. It isn't a very good song, but now I can't listen to it without thinking of the movie Anchorman.
- One Toke Over The Line - Brewer and Shipley: Peaked at #10 in 1971. a little too twangy for my tastes.
- Put Your Hand in the Hand - Ocean: Peaked at #2 in 1971. as a preacher's kid, I was forced to sing this song at church ad nauseam, so I've got issues with it.
- Brand New Key - Melanie: Peaked at #1 in December 1971. I can't stand this singer's voice. The roller skate and key is rather Freudian, no?
- Seasons in the Sun - Terry Jacks: Peaked at #1 in March 1974. Harmless, forgettable pop.
- Wildfire - Michael Martin Murphy: Peaked at #3 in June 1975. Not my thing, but as young boy, this song frightened me with its haunting, eerie mood and ghostly lyrics.
- Wedding Bell Blues - The 5th Dimension: Peaked at #1 in November 1969. Even with the strange choice of having a honky-tonk piano in the background, I have always liked this song. Bill better hurry up and propose.
- Everybody's Talkin' - Nilsson: Peaked at #6 in 1969. from the movie Midnight Cowboy
