by Anonymousreply 5312/27/2012

The only way to get through "Having My Baby" is to sing along with the alternate lyrics:

"I'm having your baby -You're a creep and a coward and I wish I'd never known you. I'm having your baby - And looking back now I wish I'd only blown you. I'm having your baby - For a momentary thrill threw 'way my reputation. I'm having your baby - Been three months now since my last ovulation. Let me put it to you - I'm gonna sue you. You did me, boy, but now I'm gonna do you... I'm having your baby. Gonna get me a lawyer and let the whole world know it. I'm having your baby - you reap what you sow and you're the one who sowed it.. Oh gee, I knew it! Why'd I let you do it? You lied to me when you said you withdrew it. I'm having your baby. I'm a woman in trouble but it's no great disaster. I'm having your baby - For the rest of your life you'll be paying for the little bastard."

Delta Dawn!!

by Anonymousreply 7312/27/2012

Yellow Submarine

by Anonymousreply 7412/27/2012

Delta Dawn is a killer mix with a backup vocal that counts as one of the best of the decade. Story songs, particularly Southern gothic story songs were one of the most eclectic fads in '70s music. Delta Dawn by Helen Reddy is one of the best.

Yellow Submarine perfectly encapsulates the trippy sunshine pop of it's time. It's roots in the tradition of English pub singalongs contrasts brilliantly with the camp sensibility of the day.

I grew up in the eighties and thought the music was crap at the time. Some songs are now sentimental favorites but after looking up all the hits from that time on link below I still say 90% of it was dog shit.

I really don't get the love for Michael Jackson after The Jackson Five. He had real talent but his music was shlocky and souless.

I also don't get how beyond her great voice Kelly Clarkson has had so many hits. Her song all sound the same and are boring. Nothing awful just dull.

How old are you, r118? Those sounds are all from 1971. Both 'Put Your Hand In the Hand' and 'Stay Awhile' were part of the mini Canadian invasion that included stars like Anne Murray, Gordon Lightfoot and Joni Mitchell. Three Dog Night and Paul Revere scored their biggest hits with 'Joy to the World' and 'Indian Reservation(Lament of the Cherokee Nation Indian)'. I'm sorry you didn't have a better time because I think 1971 was one of the best years of music we ever had.
