I don't know about songs no one knows but I'm totally into 70's and early 80's music lately - stuff no one may remember or think about anymore. The cheesy stuff that would have probably been on one of those K-Tel records commercials. It just makes me happy. I guess it's nostalgia. This is what I remember from my childhood.
Do you remember these?
This one's even from Solid Gold! Do your remember that show?
I've always loved both of those songs, I Go Crazy and Cool Night, but I never knew who sang them (I was young when they were popular) so when I looked them up and saw that they were by the same guy I was so surprised. They're in heavy rotation on my itunes. I do also remember that song '65 Love Affair Ted Bell.
sportsgirl, I'm intrigued by that last one you posted. I never heard of it and will definitely be checking it out.
wendylou, speaking of coincidences, Neil Diamond is my all-time favorite singer and the first time I heard the song Flame (first video I posted), I loved it but had no idea he wrote it. I found out he was the songwriter when I got his anthology set called "In My Lifetime," and it was on there. I was shocked.
Ted Bell, here's instructions from our How-To section on how to embed a video here. It works with YouTube and a handful of other formats. I hope this helps.
John Davidson. Wow! I remember him showing up pretty much everywhere on television in the 70s. Don't remember him being a singer.
Oh Ted Bell , yur killin me! ELO is like a drug for me. Re: Tony Joe White "I Get Off On It" It sounds familiar but not enough to ring any bells
wendylou LOL I'm with you on the K-Tel records because music is all about the happy!!! Paul Davis is so sigh-worthy! And Michael Martin Murphey's Wildfire, well, I need Marlena to help me figure out why 14-year-old me was so mesmerized by that song. Still gets me 40+ years later.
Here's a little ditty that sways me every time. Give it a minute for the song to start. *deepsigh*
