Here are my top 10 artists/bands from the 70s:
1. Carole King - My mom had the Tapestry album and I used to play it over and over again. My favorite song is "Where You Lead."
2. Carly Simon - To this day, "You're So Vain" is still one of my favorite songs.
3. Joni Mitchell - "Help Me" is my go-to summer song. I can't kick off the season without playing it several times.
4. Elton John - I'm instantly transported to the 70s whenever I hear an Elton John song. He's still one of my all-time favorite artists. I love too many of his songs to have one favorite.
5. REO Speedwagon - You Can Tune a Piano, but You Can't Tuna Fish is my favorite REO album. It contains two songs I'll never get tired of: "Roll with the Changes" and "Time for Me to Fly." I like to listen to them at ear-splitting decibel levels.
6. Fleetwood Mac - One word: Rumours.
7. Queen - My dad introduced me to the album A Night at the Opera (on eight track, no less). Singing along to those songs is one of my favorite childhood memories.
8. Kansas - the song "Dust in the Wind" is like musical Valium to me (in the best possible way). I also love "Point of Know Return" and "Carry On, Wayward Son."
9. Meat Loaf - This is another artist my dad introduced me to in the late 70s. I had no clue back then what that baseball metaphor in "Paradise by the Dashboard Light" was all about.
10. The Eagles - In On the Island, Anna sings along to "Take It Easy" while riding in T.J.'s SUV. However, my favorite Eagles song will always be "One of These Nights."
Thirty-year-old Daisy DiStefano has two people she holds dear: the grandmother who raised her, and her three-year-old son, Elliott. But when Daisy’s grandmother is killed in a seemingly random act of violence, Daisy must take steps to protect herself and her child.
Despite a thriving career in San Francisco, thirty-six-year-old Brooks McClain has returned home to spend what little time his mother has left before she succumbs to the deadly disease that is ravaging her. The seasoned investigative reporter has taken a position with the local newspaper and been on the job less than twenty-four hours when he’s summoned to cover the death of Pauline Thorpe.
Brooks is all business, but the more time he spends with Daisy DiStefano, the more invested he becomes; there’s something about a single mother, a defenseless child, and an unsolved crime that has stirred Brooks’s protective instincts like nothing ever has before.
And when the unthinkable happens, Brooks will do whatever it takes to clear the name of the woman he’s fallen for and the child he’ll protect at any cost.
Romantic and suspenseful, Every Time I Think of You shows how far two people will go to fight for the ones they love, and the life they’ve always imagined. (Synopsis courtesy of Amazon.)
