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 a little from the original.
Tough to pick one song out from this excellent countdown! Debuting at #38 is Jackson Browne’s second AT40 hit. It comes from his LP The Pretender, and it’s probably less well known now than the title track, which got to #58 later in the year. Tragedy struck while JB was recording the album: his wife, Phyllis Major, committed suicide. Unrelated but at least a little interesting is the fact that Ms. Major’s mother shares writing credit on this tune. It peaked at #23.
