So which is it, The Village People or Electric Light Orchestra? They both suck pretty bad, but I had to give a slight advantage to The Village People.

REO Speedwagon and Styx suck very mightily.

KC and the Sunshine Band. Bay City Rollers. They must be hunted down and "disabled" before they do something stupid like a reunion tour.

Toto. I hate them because I had a sexually frustrated gay housemate who played them over and over and over on an 8-track. His favorite song was "Love isn't always on time" - He thought it was about him. I also hated Styx, The Knack, and all the bands that sounded like Kansas but weren't as good.

ELO was pretty cool. Jeff Lynne is a class musician - good music. Maybe just not your type of music. And REO!? "Take It On The Run" was a great tune! Okay - worst bands that played in the seventies: Grateful Dead. [XX(] Bay City Rollers. Lipps Inc. Ambrosia.

Im gonna fight for this one. [b]ALL OUT OF LOVE (Graham Russell/Clive Davis) I'm lying alone with my head on the phone Thinking of you till it hurts I know you hurt too but what else can we do Tormented and torn apart I wish I could carry your smile and my heart For times when my life feels so low It would make me believe what tomorrow could bring When today doesn't really know, doesn't really know Chorus: I 'm all out of love, I'm so lost without you I know you were right believing for so long I 'm all out of love, what am I without you I can't be too late to say that I was so wrong I want you to come back and carry me home Away from this long lonely nights I'm reaching for you, are you feeling it too Does the feeling seem oh so right And what would you say if I called on you now And said that I can't hold on There's no easy way, it gets harder each day Please love me or I'll be gone, I'll be gone Chorus Oh, what are you thinking of? What are you thinking of? Oh, what are you thinking of? What are you thinking of? Chorus(3x) [/b] [puke]

I love Steve Miller! First concert I ever went to, in 1990. Also saw SRV that summer, a month or two before he died.

Definately the Village People. I was driving around town with my girl friend one night in 1978, when this YMCA "commercial" keeps playing on the radio for something like ten minutes (It was her car and she didn't have a... 8 track stereo player) Anyway, I was thinking "OK, OK, the YMCA is a great place, now how about playing some Hamilton Joe Frank and Reynolds!" (just kidding) Anyway, the joke was on all of us because it wasn't a commercial, it was a "song" performed by a band of flaming pole smokers. The worst part is, our local radio stations played the Village People and the rest of that disco shit 24x7 for something like ten years. It was a horrible time to be alive. IMHO, the only good music in the 70's was the stuff they never played on the radio. Oh yeah, that band that did the song "Float On" (I'm Larry...and I'm Aquaris...)they sucked mightily.

Nope. I'm the guy who is listing all the dinosaur bands that should never have been allowed into the studio. Then again I'm just a bumpkin from Tennessee who knows zero about music so who would listen to me? [b]BTW: "Float On" was by "The Floaters" and they did indeed suck. [/b]

Man I got almost all of these songs. [:D] ELO kicks ass too. Styx, REO and many others were pretty cool. Course I was just a dirtball little kid at the time. Gonna give the nod to that Afternoon Delight bullshit though. Village People really sucked. If your gonna be that fucking gay you better be able to kick out the jams like Queen did.

Oh? I'm sorry Jim, I must be the one who misunderstood the topic. This is bands/artists of the "70s" right? Oliver was the "60s" but then again you're the expert. Even with those lesser known bands such as Bloodrock who never really got out of their hometown of Fort Worth except that time they played your sweet sixteen. Must be why you're so fascinated by them.

No, Oliver was the seventies. You mentioned Steam, who were a sixties band. Their one hit, "Goodbye," was from 1969 to be exact.

You know more about them than I do, so...... Don't get mad, just do what your mood ring says. Slap on some High Karate, jump in your Earth shoes, and head on out.
Link Posted: 5/3/2003 5:49:25 PM EDT
Actually Jim, Steam's song "Na Na Hey Hey" entered the Cashbox charts in 1970 which would qualify. As I understand it, titles, records and artists which entered prior to 1/1/1970 are allowed here and Oliver entered the charts last on 12/20/69 which by my calculations is about 11 days shy of the 70s. Of course you wouldn't know that seeing how you're still intoxicated by Jade East.

I think you mean either BJ Thomas or Blue Swede. The Blue Swede version has the "ooga a chaka" chanting at the start & was the '70s, BJ Thomas did his version in the '60s . Almost all 70's album rock is on my 'no play' list. As cheesy as The Village People/disco in general are I can't stand Eric Clapton/BTO/Eagles/Skynyrd/Pink Floyd etc. Mostly because they've been played to death. Still like LedZep & Sabbath. Good thing nobody mentioned the Ramones or else things might get ugly...wait a minute, that didn't sound right (Joey Ramone was one fugly mofo). Disco sucks, but Donna Summer & Chaka Khan..
