MCA Big Rock Hits of the 70’s

Friday, September 11, 2015
MCA Records was a leader in signing and distributing some of the biggest rock stars back in the seventies. From Elton John to The Who, their stable of artists were a major influence in the soundtrack of my youth. Today’s pick six is some of the great hits from that era. Enjoy.

Don’t Do Me Like That - Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: No list of consequence wouldn’t include Tom Petty. I know Tom had his problems with MCA over the price of his records, but he along with Jimmy Iovine on the boards, released music that has stood the test of time.

The Real Me - The Who: Influential iconoclasts The Who dominated FM AOR stations in those days. They have plenty of songs to choose from their golden days, all guaranteed to hit all the emotional notes of being a teenager.

FM - Steely Dan: Of course I would include Steely Dan. Progenitors of Jazz/Rock fusion, their smooth sound lulled me to sleep on many a night.

We’re Here For A Good Time (Not A Long Time) - Trooper: A nice jam from a band that is not easily remembered. A slight Jamaican vibe permeates this song that sums up the feeling most of us had

Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting - Elton John: True story, my mom turned me on to Elton John. She must not of listened to Bernie Taupin’s lyrics very closely. This is yet another catchy tune from the prolific pair.

She Flies On Strange Wings - Golden Earring: I know Golden Earring is best known for the great Radar Love, but this song has just stuck to me all these years. I think it’s the guitar. You have to admit it’s pretty impressive.
