    You missed the good Bryan Adams music. You were left with the wedding song Bryan Adams music.

    I wish. Instead, I had the dumb hair-parted-down-the-middle look that everybody had at that time.

    Those make @ImJustKCClone and @MuskieCy lists oddly inviting, by comparison.

    I saw Edgar Winter in St. Paul in 1974, also REO Speedwagon, Bachman-Turner Overdrive (first US concert appearance), Climax Blues Band, and Brian Auger's Oblivion Express. All 5 bands, 7+ hours music, for $6.00.

    Those were the days.

    At the wedding we recently attended, our first dance song came on while my wife was in the bathroom. I sent my nephew and his extremely extroverted and loud husband to stand outside the women's room and yell into the doorway to get her out so we could dance.

    Once again, I wish. I think we all wanted to look like this.

    When I think Bryan Adams, I think songs like "Summer of 69," "Cuts Like A Knife," and "One Night Love Affair." You're right about the wedding music, it wasn't his best.

    Song of the Year: "In da Club" - 50 Cent
    Week of Graduation: "Get Busy" - Sean Paul or "21 Questions" - 50 Cent featuring Nate Dogg.

    Side note, can there be a bigger difference in #1 song than from "21 Questions" to "This is the Night" by Clay Aiken which followed it?

    1975 is the year FM began to dominate AM for pop music.

    Prog rock and pretentious noodling( So Cal Laurel Canyon waah crap), along with a totally stagnant British economy, led to a backlash which gave us punk and new wave.

    What has stood the test of time better, "hey, ho,.. let's go" or Dan Fogleberg?

    I saw Alice Cooper for like $6:50 at Vets round about 1977 or 78. If I see him again a beer will most likely cost more than $6.50

    It's hard to say which stood the test of time better.

    I recently saw Big Head Todd. His first encore was a Ramones song. He totally rocked it.
