Playlist: Where I Was In… 1972?

So I’m doing back to back 70’s and finishing the early to mid seventy’s all off today!

Here’s where you find 1970, 1971 and you are looking at 72 right now, 73 was just yesterday’s post and then here’s 1974 and 1975. Click on the years if you need even more 70’s music or something? I’ve not yet done any of mid to late 70’s that’s coming soon, OK?

I don’t what else to say about this time frame but it does seems I dig more freak out music that I think I did? It’s more funky than rock too, what else? The acts who’s popped the most in my little lists are Renee Geyer for the Aussie’s and then no surprises Lou Reed and David Bowie won overall but the bands are Can and Funkadelic, if you’ll like to know?

So my (Edit 5/12/19) 40 picks for the year 1972 are…

  • Taman Shud – Sea The Swells

  1. Interesting list. ‘A Horse With No Name’ was one of my favorites of 1972, and it’s nice to see Procol Harum’s ‘Conquistador’ there. I loved that song when it came out and thought it would be a massive hit, but no….

  2. Hi William,
    Another nice list with some earworms and some little-known songs. At the time I listened most to Most People I Know Think That I’m Crazy, A Horse with No Name, Alabama, Space Truckin’ and Dead Skunk (which was all over the radio).

    Also popular was You’re So Vain by Carly Simon, and I was listening to the same artists I mentioned in 1973, plus Van Morrison’s St Dominic’s Preview.

    Later on, I got into Lou Reed and Big Youth and Nina and Aretha.

    Dead Skunk!!
