1/2/18: Fleetwood Mac “Gold Dust Woman”
Written and sang by the incomparable Stevie Nicks, it isn’t difficult to figure out what Gold Dust Woman is about: cocaine, relationships and fame.
1/3/18: Buffalo Springfield “For What It’s Worth (Stop, Hey What’s That Sound)”
From 1966 to 1968, Buffalo Springfield was at the top of the game. Stephen Stills and Neil Young are household names today thanks to their early success as members of Buffalo Springfield, and the band itself marked the beginning of the folk rock genre.
1/4/18: Aerosmith “Back in the Saddle”
Yesterday, I was thinking about coming back to work after spending some time away. There’s a phrase for that, getting “back in the saddle,” and thinking about those four words is what got this song stuck in my head!
1/5/18: Badfinger “Baby Blue”
I’m guessing you’ve probably never heard of an English band called The Iveys. They were the first group to sign with the Beatles’ Apple Records, back in 1968. The Iveys changed their name soon after signing to one I’m sure you’ll recognize: Badfinger!
