I always thought American Pie was from that Year. I guess it has been a long time.

Ah, James Taylor and Janis Joplin in the Top 40. Those were the days!

I was born in 71, so I guess it was a good year!

:-)

Wow.... Okay some good Stuff ... Alice Cooper for example and Three Dog Night. Cant say I was born that year..... but was driving a 40 Dodge Pick up on the truck farm (you young'ns will have to ask what that is), my first consistant driving experience. But I was gawking at the cool Mustangs back in tha day.:D

Here's tune from 1972 some of you might remember. Dead Skunk (in the Middle of the Road)

 

Crossin' the highway late last night

He shoulda looked left and he shoulda looked right

He didn't see the station wagon car

The skunk got squashed and there you are!

 

You got yer

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road

Stinkin' to high Heaven!

 

Take a whiff on me, that ain't no rose!

Roll up yer window and hold yer nose

You don't have to look and you don't have to see

'Cause you can feel it in your olfactory

 

You got yer

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road

Stinkin' to high Heaven!

 

Yeah you got yer dead cat and you got yer dead dog

On a moonlight night you got yer dead toad frog

Got yer dead rabbit and yer dead raccoon

The blood and the guts they're gonna make you swoon!

You got yer

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

You got yer dead skunk in the middle of the road

Stinkin' to high Heaven!

 

C'mon stink!

 

You got it!

It's dead, it's in the middle

Dead skunk in the middle!

Dead skunk in the middle of the road

Stinkin' to high heaven!

All over the road, technicolor man!

Oh, you got pollution

It's dead, it's in the middle

And it's stinkin' to high, high Heaven
