meme from clobby via elkay -- top 75 songs from the year I turned 18Collapse )

Some notes on the music of 1975 -- the big themes were funk, disco, (and funky disco), but with a strong representation of classic rawk and lots of ghey-hey-hey gloopy pop. I'm probably kinder to the disco now than I was then. The real dark horse -- well besides George Harrison's 'Dark Horse' -- was Kraftwerk's "Autobahn." Believe me, if you were a chemically altered punk riding around in your gigantic rusted-out land shark, burning 27 cents/gallon gas, "Autobahn" was a total mindfuck.

On the teeth-grindingly-bad tip: The Bee Gees -- they ruined falsetto for a generation. On the ridiculous-but-compelling tip, Jimmy Castor Bunch's "Bertha Butt Boogie." That's where that sample of a guy saying "We're going to go back. Way back" that's all over hip hop records came from...

Papoose rocks 50 Shots WARNING: Way too raw for playing on speakers at work.

Every so often Hip Hop hits the nail on the head. Ice Cube used to do this -- drop raw truth -- before he became a movie star.

Extra points for biting Sam Cooke.

*UPDATE* copied mp3 to cornwarning.com so it won't turn into a dead link...
