Hey, it’s Jerrald Hayes….Do you remember the music you listened to in high school? I think we all remember “Woodstock: Music from the Original Soundtrack,” but what else were you listening to back then?
I was listening to tunes while out riding my bicycle the other day and I put together some of what I recall from back then. I can recall hanging out just outside the gym before I’m guessing what was a summer time football practice listening to somebody’s car radio playing a song by this new guy named Bruce Springsteen called “Spirit in the Night” (Or maybe it was “Blinded by the Light“? It was a long time ago.)
What do you recall? What were you listening to back then?
In addition to helping Ian Gilchrist with photographs from the period for the proverbial slideshow, Peter Ruppert has offered to put together the music soundtrack for the show. Way to step up, Peter and Ian!
Some other songs I vaguely recall…
- Moondance, by Van Morrison
- Bad, Bad Leroy Brown, by Jim Croce
- You’re So Vain, by Carly Simon
- Reelin’ In the Years, by Steely Dan
- Tiny Dancer, by Elton John
- Stairway to Heaven, by Led Zeppelin
That’s about all I can dig up right now. Please add your favorite songs below, so Peter can try to add them to the soundtrack.
