Throwback Thursday: 1972

10. America - A Horse With No Name
9. Ringo Starr - Back Off Boogaloo
8. Aretha Franklin - Day Dreaming
7. Al Green - Look What You Done For Me
6. The Stylistics Featuring Russell Thompkins,Jr. - Betcha By Golly, Wow

Ok, I know I said in the comments last week that I'd pick the hardest, proggiest, Edgar Winteriest track on this weeks countdown. But the selection of that kind of song is pretty thin and I think it'd come down to America or Ringo Starr. Plus, come on. This song is magical.

5.  Michael Jackson - Rockin Robin
4. The Staple Singers - I'll Take You There
3. The Chi-lites - Oh Girl
2. Joe Tex - I Gotcha
1. Roberta Flack - The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face

1972 and in May I'm still 14. I could not stand that Roberta Flack song...bore-o-rama. Every time it came on, I would switch it, and it went on and on and on. But Betcha By Golly Wow? Magic.-Nat

This came on 70's on 7 the other day and I was transported. So I knew I was going to play it when I saw it on the countdown. I probably would have just played the America song if I hadn't heard it recently.
