Before I started this blog, I posted about songs from old AT40s on Facebook, January-July 2017. I’ll be moving them here over time. This entry has been edited from the original.
This countdown came two days after the great 78 blizzard that hit the Cincinnati area. Forty years ago today, one of the two fiercest snowstorms I’ve experienced walloped us (the other was in January 94). I remember watching Tony Sands, Channel 5’s veteran meteorologist, tell us about the remarkably low pressure accompanying the storm. I think we got about a foot of white stuff.
That’s not happening today, but we can pretend we’re snowbound and get down to some funk by the Commodores, from before they went all ballad-y. This was the follow-up to “Brickhouse;” it’s at #29, and would climb to #24.
