1. "Do You Know The Way To San Jose?" by Dionne Warwick
My earliest memories of liking music are sitting at the breakfast table and Mum would have the radio on. Dionne Warwick and Burt Bacharach were all the rage in the late 60's.
I can remember thinking my cousins (all boys, a couple years older than us) having really cool taste in music and this was one they had just bought on a single. Every time we visited we asked them to play it. Looking at that clip, I'm cringing just a little bit.
3. "The Wild One" by Suzi Quatro
One of the first ever birthday parties I went to, they were playing this song over and over again, again on a single on an actual record player. All the really cool people had one. We even had a record player.
4. "Bye Bye Baby" by The Bay City Rollers
I could have put any of The Bay City Rollers' songs in here and it would've been my favourite. Just watching the clip gave my heart a little flutter. I was so, so in love with these guys as a young girl. Why, I don't really know.
5. "Roll Over Lay Down" by Status Quo
The local horse race track (Eagle Farm for those in Brisbane) used to hold an annual kid's Christmas party with rides, food and a kid's disco. This was one of my favourites they played. We all loved Status Quo and I'm sure us kids were the original air guitar heroes of the day. I'm not sure "roll over lay down and let me in" were the best lyrics to be letting an innocent 9 year old listen to but I didn't have a clue back then.
So there you have it. A bit of a mixture. I'd pretty much say the above are still pretty much liked, except maybe "Little Arrows". What was I thinking? Thanks Kate for another great Listography. I expect there'll be quite a few classics in this lot. Head over to Kate Takes 5 for a look to see what everyone else has linked up.
