Well, not all is lost because you get to claim " All By Myself" by Eric Carmen all by yourself ! Congrats on that. Well played.

"All By Myself" was Eric's first solo hit after he left the group The Raspberries which took "Go All The Way" to number 5 on the charts in 1972. Eric Carmen had a pretty decent career with 8 singles making the top 40 with " All By Myself" charting the highest at #2, he had " Make Me Lose Control" reach #3 and "Hungry Eyes" from " Dirty Dancing" peak at # 4. As a writer he wrote the love theme from the movie " Footloose". "Almost Paradise" by Loverboy's Mike Reno and Heart's Ann Wilson hit #7. Also. Shaun Cassidy took two of Eric Carmen's songs " That's Rock N Roll" and "Hey, Deanie" to top 10 singles.

JB
coldshoulder,

you may want to take a peek at post # 4917. You have received credit for Gordon Lightfoot and "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald" after all.

There was a communication breakdown between Bevo and myself, lol.
Anyway, congrats on both of your answers.

JB

Commutation - if not a full acquital is accepted.

Yes, I made so many poor decisions I am amazed that I am alive and basically was gainfully employed my entire adult life.

I actually had a "break through" around 30 where I had had so many of these horrible decisions that I stopped doing them because I literally couldn't stand the pressure of being nervous and potentially in trouble. Not maturity - just fear.

That and the love a "good" woman and several kiddos will gob smack the sass right out of you.

Good job, Bevo! There are many roads that will take us where we want to go. It's up to us to choose the right ones.

ROCK ON!

I'll attempt to start us off on this 1977 quiz:

3. "(Your Love Has Lifted Me)Higher and Higher" - Originally done by Jackie Wilson, but I believe the '77 hit was by Rita Coolidge
8. "Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue" - Loretta Lynn's sister, Crystal Gayle

ROCK ON!

OWK,

3. "(Your Love Has Lifted Me) Higher and Higher" by Rita Coolidge is correct. You are also correct that this song was previously a hit by Jackie Wilson ten years earlier in 1967, Jackie's hit only peaked at #6.

8." Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue" by Crystal Gayle is correct. A huge hit on the Country Charts was able to cross over to the Pop Charts as well as the Adult Contemporary Chart.. The song also won Grammys for Best Country Song and Best Female Country Performance and was nominated for Record Of The Year and Song Of The Year.

With these two answers is good to see the feminine side of OWK as we begin the recap 1977. Oh, relax it's a joke ! Thanks for starting off the quiz for us.

1. " Fly Like An Eagle" by Steve Miller is correct. While " Fly Like An Eagle" peaked at #2, two of Steve Miller's 3 previous singles went to #1 on the Charts "The Joker" and 'Rock'n Me" while the 3rd song " Take The Money and Run" wasn't too shabby at #11.

Many may be surprised to learn about Miller's formative years . . .his first guitar lesson was given to him by none other than Les Paul and by the age of 11 he had jammed with T. Bone Walker, in high school he formed a band with HS pal Boz Scaggs.

6. " Nobody Does It Better" by Carly Simon is correct. This song, of course, was the theme song from the James Bond movie, "The Spy Who Loved Me". The song earned Grammy nominations for Song Of The Year and also Best Female Pop Performance, but both nominations lost to Barbra Streisand's " Love Theme from "A Star Is Born". "Nobody's Does It Better" remained the best charting Bond theme ever until Duran Duran took " A View To A Kill" to #1 in 1985.

With these two correct answers we are now halfway through 1977, Four songs down and only four to go.

Love the snow. Going to melt here this weekend. Winter shoudn't be over but you never know. Hope there are a few more decent snows and I get to sit in front of the fire with two cats on the couch. ( And no other humans for a while!)

Trap game at Nthwestern for the Bucks. Glad to see the Minnesota game on Sat. is in N.Y. I believe it is classified as a home game for Minny; not sure what that is all about. Gives Diop and the team a showcase to do their thing. Win the next two and crack below number 20 in the next poll.

coldshoulder,


I'm In You" by Peter Frampton is correct. When "Frampton Comes Alive" became one of the biggest selling live albums of all time, topping the charts and producing 3 huge singles it set the bar very high for Peter Frampton, but his single " " I'm In You" actually charted higher than any of the singles off "Frampton Comes Alive" had. The album "I'm In You" sold 3 million copies but never was considered a big success compared to the "FCA" album previously. The album was released so close to "FCA" that the public failed to realize that Peter had a new album released because of the huge success of the live album. Guess it was a marketing/PR issue in retrospect.

EagleGuy,

" Keep It Comin' Love" by KC & The Sunshine Band is correct. Before " Keep It Comin' Love" hit #2, KC had 3 singles in a row reach #1 followed by a song that peaked at #37 and then saw "KICL" climb to # 2 and then the 2 songs that followed it both peaked at #35 and then the next song after that reached #1 again ! A real roller coaster ride of releases from high to low and back again. This streak continued on after the two #35 releases as the band followed those two songs up with another #1 hit and then a #2 hit before the last top 40 song peaked at # 18.

Before KC hit it big with his debut hit " Get Down Tonight" which hit #1, he had written and produced the #1 hit for George McCrae, " Rock Your Baby" which is a little known fact. The Sunshine band varied in size and had 7 to 11 members at a time.

7. "Boogie Nights" - Heatwave. Great tune to shake your tail feathers to.

4. I'm disqualifying myself, because I was curious enough to look it up last night. Having done so, I kinda recall hearing the song before, as if in the distant background of my life - but no conscious memory of hearing it on the radio and saying "Oh, boy - "Float On", or "Oh, no - not that sappy song again!" LOL. Interesting tune and vocals. I can appreciate it better now.

I can imagine that!

KC & TS - a big, fun group.

Like Zunardo, I peeked at humble #4.

1-2" snow now approaching 5-6". It happens, thankfully. Glad am not in the northeast though.

I did the exact same thing as you on #4, Zunardo. My reaction? Exactly the same as you. I honestly couldn't remember if I remembered the song or not. How could it have reached #2 without support from the two of us?

Zunardo,

7. "Boogie Nights" - Heatwave is correct. Heatwave was a German based band but Johnnie Wider Jr, an American who moved to Germany after his Army service ended hooked up with his brother Keith to form Heatwave. The band made several changes and eventually added a member named Rod Temperton, a keyboard/songwriter from England who ended up writing " Boogie Nights" which earned a Grammy nomination for Best Group R&B Performance but lost out to The Emotion's " Best Of My Love". After "Boogie Nights" almost all of the band had left for a variety of reasons. Rod Temperton had some very big success's after he left the band. Examples: he wrote both " Rock With You" and "Thriller" for Michael Jackson. The song "Boogie Nights" was used as the title of that film about the porn industry starring Mark Wahlburg and Burt Reynolds but surprisingly the song was never even used in the movie. . . sorry Dirk Diggler.

We can close out the 1977 Quiz once question #4 " Float On" is officially answered.

Zunardo, EagleGuy, and Monclova Steve, have all listened to " Float On" and recall the song if only slightly, but looking for someone, anyone, to disclose who recorded " Float On", which will close out the 1977 quiz.

Hello gentlemen,

I dropped off the face of the earth for the holidays and recuperation time afterwards.

As a bit of trivia, The Divine Miss M recorded "Higher and Higher" which became my solo in swing choir in high school. We had a band back us up, and the rest of the group were my backup singers. It was a rush! Check it out on YouTube. I loved that whole album.

Welcome back to the Divine Miss. D.

JB - Northwestern has me worried. Also, I keep thinking we aren't that good. I know our passing is a lot better than recent years but it still looks sloppy to me.

Gotta go to OSU medical on Friday for a 9:15 appt. Ninety minute drive on a good day; what time should I leave. It seems that no matter what I do, I can't best the rush.

The Floaters.

Bevo,

The Wildcats really made it interesting in the last few minutes and the Bucks looked somewhat rattled at the end but managed to hold on for the win. When they got up 15, I thought they had it wrapped up, but got a bit careless and NW took advantage of the miscues and then they had to hold on, but bottom line is a win is a win and any road win in the Big10 is huge.


Any drive into Columbus on a Friday morning is a challenge of one's patience. Living in towns like Lima and Upper Sandusky has really spoiled us when it comes to dealing with traffic when we hit a metro area. Whether you're on 71 S, 23 S., or 315 S. it's always going to heavily traveled, but it seems like there is always construction issues to deal with. I don't have any words of wisdom on best routes, times etc to pass on. My oldest daughter lives in Worthington area and has the drive every day from Worthington to Marconi Drive downtown and she says the drive home is much worse than the drive down in the morning. If you have a 90 minute drive on a good day I would recommend adding 20 minutes to the time you leave the house on Friday just to allow for the unexpected.

The Floaters is correct as the group that had the #2 hit, " Float On" and this officially ends the 1977 quiz. This Detroit soul group was a One Hit Wonder and the coolest thing I can add about these guys is the fact that Cheech and Chong nearly hit the Top 40 with a parody of " Float On" called "Bloat On" by The Bloaters. The tune reached # 41 missing the Top 40 by a single song.

"the floaters"

lol, poor me, I thought you were telling us why you were headed to OSU med. Typing for me is like playing an asteroids game.

Traffic: don't feel bad. Columbus anyplace, anytime flows like diarrea relative to Ann Arbor at rush, which is between 3 and 7pm to get a 1000 people out of town. Do not hire UM Traffic engineers. Can't figure out the obvious between sips of frappa whatevers.

#4: drat, I knew that one.

no you didn't

I did, I really did.

Telling Ma, you're lying on message boards.

"Float On" is an interesting tune. It has somewhat of a New-Age-y feel, with that dreamy production and airy vocals. I almost dozed off while listening to it the other day, it made me so relaxed. Thanks for bringing it back.

I see the Buckeyes are finally ranked, at #22!

You're not alone. Oh my...

Laughing at myself: I thought it was Float On by Modest Mouse, but just discovered that Float On is only eight years old. I just watched the video and followed the lyrics. Kind of a cool video and nice message: Grey skies are gonna clear up! I vaguely remember MM, but not this FO, either!

As a map nut, I have been wondering about the Columbus traffic. Sounds like Charlotte on steroids.

EIB: Share whatever you're having!
