PostPosted: 10/22/10 6:11 pm    ::: Friday Cheesy 70's Song of the Day Reply Reply with quote

I offer to my fellow RebKellians, from 1974, one of my favorite "guilty pleasure" songs of that time period:

Reunion's "Life Is a Rock (But the Radio Rolled Me)" Cool

Cheesy 70's?

I offer something that is in no way a guilty pleasure, but it damn sure is cheesy

<embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/KGuFn0RPgaE?fs=1&hl=en_US&color1=0x234900&color2=0x4e9e00" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="480" height="385"></embed></object>

I also offer my apologies for putting this here. Some things should really stay in the 70's.

Nah, without ABC we don't end up with OPP, so thanks from me to the Jackson 5.

The Dead Kennedys certainly documented cheesy social situations as well as cheesy social problem solutions.....

Haha ... that's what I was originally going to post before changing my mind to Baccara.

If a Wisconsin gal says it's cheesy, it's seriously cheesy.

Tough choice. "Billy, Don't Be a Hero" was # 1 on Billboard charts for two weeks, displacing "Band on the Run", which enjoy only a 1 week run. What does that say about where brains were at in the 70's!!! Embarassed

Yes, I have Life Is a Rock & Billy Don't Be A Hero...

Eres Tu - Mocedades

Wham Bam Shang-a-Lang - Silver
The Night Chicago Died - Paper Lace (who did the original Billy Don't Be a Hero)
Third Rate Romance - Amazing Rhythm Aces

Oh have I got one for you. Shoot, this duo alone is the embodiment of 70s cheese and I could give you more singles than the one here, but thought I'd go with this one. The video may be from the 80s, but the single came out in 1976.

Great, or rather, a "grate" choice of a song!

Quite possibly, one of the worst songs of the 70's. It's more reminiscent of the teenage tragedy soap opera songs from the early-60's (examples: "Tell Laura I Love Her", "Leader Of The Pack", etc.)

Wow, if you are talking top 40 radio AM, in the 70's, all I had, I think the more valid Question would be least cheesiest.

A short list:

- at least 95% of the disco songs.
#1 Disco duck: ( I rest my case) Laughing
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=97RjuC9YeXg

99.9% of CB/Trucker songs:

No link here, can't remember a single title.

This song really, really sucks. It sucks. Worse than Disco Duck, for a factor of something.

If you can't have the Osmonds (the 70's version), you might have to settle for an imitation of them...

I have Meri Wilson's "Telephone Man" on one of Rhino Records' 'Have A Nice Day: Super Hits of the 70's' compilations. According to the liner notes, that song made the Top-40 charts on the same week that Elvis Presley died. And it concluded, "now we know what really killed him." Razz

This has been a bad time for "old school R&B" acts in the last few days!

Earlier this morning, Etta James passed away. And Johnny Otis of "Willie And The Hand Jive" fame also died.

Another one, Jimmy Castor, also passed away. And to commemorate his passing, I offer you his demented song from the early-1970's...

Now you've done it. I'll have this stuck in my head now until I find a way to get it out.

ETA: I didn't even get to listen to it, just looking at the title did it.

Of course nearly anything by Tony Orlando would qualify...

You probably never heard of this original version by Jackie DeShannon. And it was nowhere near as popular as Kim Carnes' mega-hit cover in 1981.

I have almost every one of these songs on my ipod I'm proud to say as a teenager of the 70s. That includes Bertha Butt Boogie, Life is a Rock, Clap for the Wolfman, and My Girl Bill.

Lemme know when you find a video for "Wham Bam Shang-a-Lang" by Silver!
