Oddly obscure, groovy 70s hits

I'm thinking of things like MacArthur Park and One Less Bell to Answer. Melancholy, boppy seventies songs. Any ideaS? I'm making a play list.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 16107/30/2014

Sharing the Night Together by Dr. Hook.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 106/04/2013

Up The Ladder To The Roof - The Supremes (one of the hits they had w/ Jean Terrell on lead vocals post-Miss Ross).

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 206/04/2013

The original "McArthur's Park," i.e., the one that's actually a little bit obscure, is a groovy '60s hit. Jimmy Webb wrote it. Richard Harris sang it. A lovely bit of LA ephemera.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 306/04/2013

Two songs that totally ruled, though they might not be precisely obscure, were "In the Summertime" and "Spirit in the Sky."

"Have a drink, have a drive, go out and see what you can find."

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 406/04/2013

Your two examples are far from oddly obscure.

Young Hearts Run Free by Candy Stanton.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 606/04/2013

FREE -- "All Right Now"

Great riding-around-fast-song when I first got my driver's license.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 706/04/2013

The Fifth Dimension was groovy, and "California Soul" is not overplayed.

Herman's Hermits' "No Milk Today" is bouyant AND moody.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 806/04/2013

"Grazing in the Grass" by the Friends of Distinction

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 906/04/2013

Nathan Jones and Stoned Love by the Ross-less Supremes.

Smiling Faces by the Undisputed Truth.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 1606/04/2013

If you want obscure, try the extended play version of "Smiling Faces" by the Temptations.

The arrangement by David Van De Pitte of this Norman Whitfield/Barrett Strong classic is magnificent.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 1706/04/2013

Kenny Rankin's album INSIDE, from 1975, has lots of obscure, groovy songs. No hits, as it were. Here's his version of Stevie Wonder's "Creepin'":

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 1806/04/2013

Peter Allen's "Six-thirty, Sunday Morning," from his TAUGHT BY EXPERTS album. One of the best obscure songs from 1976. The whole album is perfect, his best record. I don't think it's out on CD.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 1906/04/2013

I second NATHAN JONES. It brings back so many good memories. Gay Liberation. It was a great song but not good enough to keep The Supremes on the charts without Diana. I loved the quadrophonic effect in the bridge.

Another gem from Robin Trower, with James Dewar's killer vocals -- "In City Dreams."

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 5106/05/2013

"One Fine Morning" - Lighthouse

This song reminds me of I'm Your Vehicle, with all the driving, blaring horns.

Starlight, ELO.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 5306/05/2013

Speaking of ELO: "Last Train to London" (maybe a little more "disco" than "groovy" though...)

I Can't Stand the Rain (Disco version by Eruption - 1978)

Originally recorded by Ann Peebles in 1973. I never heard this song in my life before last month then saw this clip from the BBC's Top of the Pops rebroadcast, heard it being played in the supermarket AND a friend started singing it out of the blue. All within the space of a week.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 6206/05/2013

R62, it's also on Tina Turner's "Private Dancer" album.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 6306/05/2013

Sundown by Gordon Lightfoot.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 6406/05/2013

Not obscure but about as "groovy" as you can get: Afternoon Delight by the Starland Vocal Band.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 6506/05/2013

R65, that is one of the worst songs of any decade.

It's so much worse, even, than "We Built This Country," which so many people think -- or have been sheepled into saying -- is the worst song ever, that I can't believe anyone put it on a list of "groovy" anything.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 6606/05/2013

[quote] It's so much worse, even, than "We Built This Country," which so many people think -- or have been sheepled into saying -- is the worst song ever

There's another song you should hear. People think it's really bad. It's called, "We Built This City."

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 6706/05/2013

That's it. Thanks, R67, for the correction. And the side of cunt.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 6806/05/2013

Father Christmas by the Kinks. Possibly the only holiday song about robbing and beating up Santa Claus

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 6906/05/2013

Its groovy and 70's,the song might have been a hit but this cover can probably be called oddly obscure

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 8007/10/2013

R76 "One Less Bell To Answer" from The Fifth Dimension is from 1970.

"Moonlight Feels Right" by Starbuck "So Into You" by Atlanta Rhythm Section

Summer is a great time to watch "Swingtime" a 13 episode drama series about life in the seventies that aired a few years ago on CBS. The music was great and it starred Lana Parilla, who went on to star in "Once Upon A Time" and the awesome Miriam Shor. A really fun show.

Strawberry Letter 23, first done by Shuggie Otis (obscure version) later by the Brothers Johnson (top ten hit I believe). Great trippy tune that screams 70s groove to me whenever I hear it.

I LOVE Strawberry Letter 23 by the Brothers Johnson. I have it on my ipod and blast it in my car. The Brothers Johnson had a lot great tunes.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 10107/19/2013

I think it was the 70s - a song by a former Vegas showgirl, can't remember the name but the last line in every verse was "bla bla Billy Joe Macalester bla bla bla the Tallahatchee Bridge". It was a big hit and a great song. Does anyone remember the name?

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 10207/19/2013

"The Lord's Prayer" by Sister Janet Meade. Just the grooviest, weirdest spiritual Top 40 hit I ever heard.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 10307/19/2013

Andy Kim's song "Rock Me Gently." Every time I hear it, I know the lyrics are supposed to say "Fuck Me Gently." ("... me slowly. Take it easy. Don't you know? That I have never been loved like this before.")

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 12303/03/2014

"Sundown" by Gordon Lightfoot and "Baker Street" are by no means "obscure." They were both huge hits. You still hear them on the radio today. "Baker Street" is considered a classic.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 14303/08/2014

"Step Out" is a mellow early-70's single off of the Mamas and the Papas vastly underrated final album ("People Like Us"). I love the groovy bass, the melancholy tone, and Michelle's tender vocals. It's one of those songs that should have been a hit.

by Burt Bacharach's toupeereply 14403/08/2014

I'm listening to a retro American Top 40 show from July 1978, and the song "You" by Rita Coolidge is the highest debut. It took me back to that time, I was pretty young, but can remember the music my parents would listen to. They preferred the easy listening variety, and this song seems to have a disco/easy listening feel that seems unique to this era.

I was also a little surprised that this is the only version I could find on You Tube, for a song that was a minor Top 40 hit.

R145 Thanks for giving some props to that Rita Coolidge song. A great song that deserved better than its Top 30 peak on the Pop Charts. Diana Ross' "Gettin' Ready For Love" is another song from around the same time that has the same Disco/Easy Listening feel to it and has become virtually obscure and forgotten today.

R50, Oh my God! Please tell me you're not a lesbian! LOL. Not that there's anything wrong with lesbians, but it's rare to find a gay man who has a clue who Robin Trower is.

Hearing Trower's music takes me back to the mid-'70s, when I spent my days surfing and hanging out with friends. We surfed a lot of waves, smoked a lot of pot, and sucked a lot of surfer dick (and got mine sucked by a lot of hot surfers), while listening to Robin Trower, Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, The Who, The Stones, The Beatles & Grand Funk. Those were the days. Life has sure changed. I haven't surfed in decades or smoked pot in 30 Years. LOL.

R25, THAT is an obscure list of rock classics. I haven't heard many of those since the '70s.

R55, I love that song. ELO rocked!

Thanks R154, I actually found a disco version of "You" as well. I never knew Rita had disco remixes.

I've been listening to the song all week. I don't know why it's bringing back so many memories for me all of a sudden.
