Music was expanding in all directions in the 1960's; one of my favorite genres is the psychedelic/garage rock from that era. Few songs capture the sound & the spirit of that style as "I Had Too Much To Dream (Last Night)" by The Electric Prunes. Take a trip with me back to those halcyon days with one of the flagship songs from the psychedelic period.   "I Had Too Much To Dream" (Annette Tucker & Nancie Mantz) Copyright 1966 4-Star Music; copyright 2004 Acuff Rose Music Limited — This show is one of many great music-related podcasts on the Pantheon network.

Before there was Ziggy Stardust, there was Arnold Corns... Thanks to a legendary performance on Top Of The Pops, "Starman" was Bowie's first hit since "Space Oddity" and proved he wasn't a one-hit wonder. In this episode, we dig into the history of this song and the origin of Ziggy Stardust.

After 2 years of COVID-19 shutdowns, live music is beginning to return. Let's celebrate the power & importance of live music by looking back at a critical moment in history. April 5, 1968: Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated the day before. America was on edge and riots were breaking out in cities across the country. But the city of Boston, MA held it together. Why? Because the Godfather Of Soul-- James Brown-- was in town. — This show is one of many great music-related podcasts on the Pantheon network. You should check them out!

In our previous episode, we looked at the history of instrumental songs that topped the pop charts. For my money, there's never been a more unlikely hit instrumental than the synth-infused, riff-heavy stomper that is Edgar Winter's "Frankenstein". This episode, we break down this instrumental classic featuring Edgar Winter on keyboards, sax and drums.

Years ago, instrumental songs were everywhere-- on the radio, the jukebox, and the Billboard Hot 100 chart. But over time, the instrumental faded from mainstream popularity. When was the last time you heard a new instrumental, or saw one topping the charts? In this episode-- our 100th show-- we explore the history of the pop instrumental as we ask the question.

The "Albums That Made Us" series continues as Brian Jacobs (Pods & Sods contributor, and one of the most thoughtful music-lovers I know) joins us with a look at two central albums that have grown with us over the years.

Nothing came easy for Badfinger. Though they had success with their first few albums (all of them are must-have classics), they soon had a tough time, thanks to terrible management, record label indifference and bad timing. In 1974, worn-down & exhausted from the non-stop touring/recording/touring again grind, they dragged themselves into the studio... and, with help from producer Chris Thomas, made one of their best albums. Many fans say it IS their best. Unfortunately, few people heard it as it was withdrawn from stores shortly after its release, thanks to legal shenanigans. Things only got worse after that. But this record is a masterpiece; let's celebrate it with a look at the song "In the Meantime/Some Other Time".  If you liked this episode on Badfinger, then check out our previous show on "Day After Day": https://lovethatsongpodcast.com/badfinger-day-after-day/ "In the Meantime/Some Other Time" (Mike Gibbins, Joey Molland) Copyright 1974 WB Music Group ASCAP — This show is one of many great music-related podcasts on the Pantheon network.

Aerosmith was a band on the brink of self-destruction when they set up in an old convent to record their next album in 1977. But despite the tension, drug abuse and general bad behavior, they managed to lay down a few great tunes, including "Kings And Queens". Let's dig into this Aerosmith classic.

Wilson Pickett only recorded 9 songs during his time at Stax in Memphis, but they were defining records. "Ninety-Nine And A Half (Won't Do)" is the last of those singles, released in May 1966. Though not as well-known as "In The Midnight Hour", "634-5789" or "Mustang Sally", this song is still a stone-cold classic in my book. Let's see what it's made of.

Join us for this Halloween Episode where we take a deep dive into one of the spookiest songs to ever hit the charts. There's a reason why this song has shown up everywhere from TV shows like "Supernatural", to films including "Halloween", the videogame "Ripper"-- its lyrics are even quoted in Steven King's "The Stand": because few songs are able to create a mood as deep and rich as this one. And it features one of the best guitar parts of all time. (And yes, we mention the cowbell.)

In the novel Lost Horizon, Shangri-La is the mystical, hidden paradise of legend. In the The Kinks song, it's the name given to the humble home of Arthur, the main character in Ray Davies' concept album/rock opera Arthur (Or The Decline and Fall of The British Empire). Written as the accompaniment for a TV movie that was never produced, Arthur still stands as one of The Kinks' best works, and "Shangri-La" is the stand-out track from this album.

1971 was a banner year for great rock albums, and one of the best of the best that year was "Sticky Fingers" by The Rolling Stones. On this episode, we take a dive into a key track from that album, "Can't You Hear Me Knocking", where the Stones begin with a killer Keef riff and end up 7 minutes later in a completely different place. How did they get there? Let's take the journey with them… and along the way, we'll pay our respects to the late, great Charlie Watts. If you enjoyed this episode, be sure to check out our deep dive on The Stones' "Gimme Shelter"-- one of our favorite episodes!

The Who released a string of classic albums, but many consider Quadrophenia to be their best. It's certainly one of their most ambitious. Pete Townshend wrote the songs, but the stunning performances by Roger Daltrey (vocals), Keith Moon (drums) & John Entwistle (bass) bring the songs to life. Nowhere is that more evident on "The Real Me", which features all four members in top form, showing why they were one of the all-time great bands.
