Walk This Way...

I just noticed that "Walk This Way", my second favorite song, is ranked as the 69th best song of the 70's on AM.

Am I the only one who finds this coincidental and funny?

Re: Walk This Way...

Well, my motto is: When the forum coughs up a puerile topic, rise to the occasion!

You asked for it:

…the 1950s: Marty Robbins – Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs
…the 1960s: Creeedence Clearwater Revival – Willy and the Poor Boys
…the 1970s: The Modern Lovers – The Modern Lovers
…the 1980s: U2 – The Unforgettable Fire
…the 1990s: Jane’s Addiction – Ritual De Lo Habitual

Besides having the one album and two songs listed above, Creedence Clearwater Revival is AM’s #1 artist of—you guessed it—1969, a year in which they have three ranked albums and five ranked songs. Clearly, they are the champions of this category.

Good night.

of coarse, a lot of great things happend in 1969. A man on the moon, Woodstock and of course, the Mets won their first World Series!
