No. No, That’s NOT The Best Of The Seventies. At All.

I heard a “Best of the Seventies” station at the dentist the other day. It was an actual XM Station though, not Muzak, so there was no excuse. They played Abba, Neil Sedaka, Paper Lace, and whatever that Do The Hustle song is. This is NOT the best of the seventies. The best music of […]
