Weekend Ear Candy – 1976

As promised, here are some of my favorite songs from one of my favorite years – 1976. That year I had my first transistor radio that also had an FM band so not only did I get to listen to WFIN and CKLW but also WIOT in Toledo. There were a bunch of hits that I loved that year and I remember that summer, camping with the family at Sulphur Lake near Arlington and the only thing that I constantly had besides my swim trunks was my transistor radio.

These are in no particular order:

Devil Woman – Cliff Richard

Silly Love Songs – Paul McCartney and Wings

Theme from S.W.A.T. – Rhythm Heritage

Don’t go breaking my heart – Elton John & Kiki Dee

Afternoon Delight – Starland Vocal Band

S.A.T.U.R.D.A.Y. Night – Baycity Rollers

Rubberband Man – The Spinners (Live 1976 Midnight Special)

Shake your booty – KC and The Sunshine Band

Car Wash- Rose Royce

Blinded by the Light – Manfred Mann

*Note* I had a problem coming up with a good 10th song to mesh with this list. My first choice “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald” by Gordon Lightfoot was a favorite but just killed the buzz of this list.

But if you want to see that one, follow the next link:
