"Let's see. Over in the UK, Close to the Edge by Yes came out and Black Sabbath Volume 4 came out. Yeah, the stoner album of there. Yeah. My first image of Black Sabbath was looking through my sister's albums and I saw the cover and I thought they were like a hippie band because on the cover Ozzy's like, you know, he's like doing that. And this is some hippie band. Yeah. Good album. That ballad. Let's see. November 1972. Catch Bull at Four by Cat Stevens. Big album. Yeah. All Directions by The Temptations. Then a month after it came out in the UK, Days of Future Past by the Moody Blues came out. This, this album, I can't believe this is an album because it's only known for one song and that's the title song that Ben by Michael Jackson based on the album. This is on a stupid movie. Best song ever written about a rat. They should have just left Will It Alone because that was a good movie in itself for its time. Ben, you're always running here and there. It's terrible. Wait, Lou, sitting on that couch and singing, it's disturbing. Ben by Rat. Let's see. Rock of Ages by Band. That's how they got it. Great live album. Yeah. Unleash the Lou on this one. Why don't they just tell you, they just wrote band, not the band. It's the band. I know. I'm like, what the fuck, people? That's a great album. Was that the Academy of Music? It's got Alan Toussaint did the Horn Arrangements, but they did the album with a horn section. Yeah. It's great. It's great. Yeah. If you're a band fan, it's cream. Yeah. Rhymes and Reasons by Carole King came out in the US in 1972. So she had three albums that year. Three albums, yeah. Yeah. And then a month later, the London Chuck Berry Sessions were released in the US. Then you jump over to the Across the Pond. What do we have? Anything? Let's see. Back and Front, Gilbert O'Sullivan. The Best of Bread. The Best of Bread. Great album. Good tournament. In December 1972, getting to the end of the year, Seventh Sojourn by the Moody Blues. Sojourn. Sojourn. Sojourn? Yeah. Is there an R in there? No, it's J-O-U-M. I thought it was Sojourn. Is it R-N? Is it R-N? Yeah. Sojourn, meaning a journey. They have it here. S-O-J-O-U-M. Sojourn. It's like sorghum. Is it a gluten-free album? Sojourn in Gomorrah. Let's see. All Directions by the Temptations. Fourth time you're mentioning that. Yeah, I know. Yugoslavia. Number one in Yugoslavia. Living in the Past, Jethro Tull. Let's go. Did I say Close to the Edge by Yes? Yeah, you did. My favorites. And what song was all that? And You and I, one of their best songs. And I think I mentioned this at the beginning. Summer Breeze, Seals and Crofts. You did not? Yeah, Summer Breeze came out in December. Summer Breeze in December. That's good. And then Santayana. Yeah, I hit the album that made him not popular anymore. It was a jazzy album. Yeah, very jazzy. Like a Miles Davis of that period. Very experimental. Yeah. He ran his course with me. Let's see. What do you guys got for Stuff? You want to go first? Sure. Jackson Brown's self-titled his debut album. What do you do with Doctor My Eyes and Rock Me on the Water? And I got a stye in my eye tonight. And you're talking about Doctor My Eyes. Doctor My Eyes. Pause me. Dave Edmonds put out the album called Rock Pile that had I Hear You Knockin' on It. Recorded. Recorded at Rockford Studios in Wales, which we discussed on the show. Like Rockford, like Rockford Files. Harry Chapin put out the album Hearts and Tales with the song Taxi on it. Remember the song Taxi? Great song. It's a great song. Great song, it is. I put on my Facebook page a couple weeks ago. I had some friends just disparage it. That's a great song. It's a great story. What is it? She handed me $20 for a 250 fare and said, Harry, keep the change. Now another man might have been angry, and another man might have been sad. But another man never would have let her go. That's a pretty good imitation. What's that? That's pretty good Harry Chapin. I got skills, I told you. That's why I'm the lead singer. My favorite song of Harry's is 20,000 pounds of bananas. Nothing beats that. That's great. It's like me with Nelson. It's lime and the coconut. I just love that fucking song. I really do. Only Kermit the Frog can sing that. I love that fucking song. I don't know why. Everybody misinterprets the song. He can't get out of your head. I think a lot of parrot heads like that song too. Yeah. Get out of here. It's island. Parrot heads are done. No, there's going to be a thing now. Jimmy Buffett. Yeah, well good luck with that. You guys know who Lee Michaels is or was? Do you know what I mean? You know what I mean? That was a two piece band. Yep, it was like the precursor to White Stripes in a weird way. You know who the drummer was? No. Bartholomew Smith Frost. Do you join? What's that? Do you join like a band after? Oh, I don't know. It was just something where it was a drummer and a keyboard player. I love that name. Bartholomew Smith Frost. B.S.F. B.S.F. We said that one, right? America did the album Homecoming with Ventura Highway on it and Don't Cross the River. Ventura Highway. See Lee Dan. Can't buy a thrill. It's going to be like Deadheads. It's going to have to be a Jimmy Buffett tribute. Deadheads beat the hell out of Parrot Heads. They don't even fight. Parrot Heads don't care about music. Deadheads don't fight though. Oh, I've seen them fight. How about this? I've seen Sisters Divine. I saw some blood. There's a lot of closet Parrot Heads. I think it's a guilty pleasure thing. Yes, it is. I've seen them on my Facebook page. There's a lot of people paying tribute to them. You're a Parrot Head. So, Lou, you just mentioned Staley Dan. I sent you guys that clip today of Kid Charlemagne live last night in Boston. Somebody posted it. I was like, what the fuck? Did you share it on my Facebook page? I think I texted. I sent you a text. You know what? For such a perfectionist, the guy that spent a one year recording one solo. Why is he letting it get... I don't know, man. I don't know. I just think he's just mailing it in. He's doing it for the money. I talked to somebody today that saw the Madison Square Garden Eagles and Staley Dan. I can't say Staley Dan because Becker's not there. He's a Staley Dan fan. He said, I have to say that the Eagles... Uh-oh. Uh-oh. Mark's cutting out. He's cutting out. He's frozen. Uh-oh. Uh-oh. There you go. Are you there? Yeah. I'm shaking my head so you can see. So he said that he went... How am I? I'm saying I'm having connection issues. Anyway, he said he went as a Staley Dan fan, but he said the Eagles were better. And I think what he meant was Staley Dan didn't sound so good. I think, you know, at the heart of the band, the soul of the band is gone. Yeah. How old is Fagan now? He's going to be 75 or something. Yeah. You have to see how these old guys can sing at that age. He said Don Henley had it. Don Henley sang perfect. They set their bar very high. Yeah. I know Don Henley is very vain and they can't sing. He won't tour anymore. He doesn't want to be up there. Right. In 1972, the Eagles put out their debut album. Glyn Johns. Glyn Johns, yeah. The legend or Glyn Johns. I don't know. Recorded in England. That's right. That's actually the first two records. Yeah. Two or three, maybe. Whenever they recorded with Glyn Johns, they recorded in England. Weird to think. Jim Croce put out... You don't mess around with Jim. I think he was really good. Yeah, right. He was going to be huge. Yes, he was. And Jack said, whoa, whoa, whoa. You can't say that. He was going to be huge. Yeah. He got the posthumous bump, unfortunately. Yeah. But those songs, I mean, the quality of the writing, time in the bottles on that. That is a beautiful song. The guitar playing. All of it is. One of the most beautiful songs ever. Yeah. Yeah. And I think what? Time in the bottles. I think that was written to his wife or something. Yeah. What else you got? Frank Sinatra's version of Bad Bay Leroy Brown is criminal. It's so bad. It's so bad. I got to look that up. It's horrible. Something by the Beatles. Something in the way. It will show. You know, he's being a rat pack on it. That's why I like William Shatner. I like his covers. Nobody can touch him. He's untouchable. Yeah. All right. What do you got, Mark? I got obscured by clouds by Pink Floyd. May never have heard of that album. It's one of my favorites of theirs. It was a soundtrack to a very, very low budget French film. Great album. On the Corner by Miles Davis. He was in a funk period. But Miles Davis doing funk was eight minute jams over a baseline. You know, I loved it. Great stuff. Chick Corea. Now, Lou, you know, Return to Forever. But he put out the album called Return to Forever. So a lot of people say it was their debut. It really wasn't. It was him. Very Brazilian influenced. He's number 10 and the most Grammy nominated artist of all time. Deserves everything. That was that was weird. So last week's show, we did the most Grammy nominees, the top 10. And Chick Corea, this jazz fusion pianist was number 10. Up there with Jay-Z and Beyonce and Michael Jackson. He puts out quality work. He's put out like 50 albums. I'm surprised. I was surprised. That was pretty cool for someone that's in that realm. Yeah. And now you see him and Herbie Hancock. The two of them never aged. So when Chick died, I was shocked. Back in the 80s, you know. Rocket. Did they do Rocket? Yep, Rocket. That was a cool video. That was that was considered a wacky, almost groundbreaking video with the robots. It's creepy. And sit ups or whatever. You remember that one, Scott? What's that? Rocket by Herbie Hancock video. Oh, yeah. With the legs. It was kind of it was creepy. There was one there was one robot in there that was going like it didn't look right. He was just like, yeah, what is he doing? Yeah, yeah. Did you like that? That was my robot imitation. Yeah. OK, you guys, I don't know if you ever heard of Wishbone Ash, but they put out one of the best albums that year, Argus or is it Argus? English band. They're kind of like. Proggy, sort of like folky Prague. Right. But they had a guitar duo that was almost like the precursor of these heavy metal guitar duos, you know. Genesis put out Foxtrot. Now, that had the song Suppers Ready, which is one of the magnum opuses. It's 23 minutes. Peter Gabriel claimed he wrote it when him and his wife had a fever and they hallucinated. Come on. They were doing drugs. It was like hallucinating about the apocalypse. Jesus, the devil. Come on. You were doing drugs. In addition to Machine Head, Made in Japan by Deep Purple came out that year, one of the best live albums. Greatest live album ever. And that's the first thing I ever heard from Deep Purple. So when I put it on, I heard Highway Star live. And when Blackmore comes in for a solo, you just hear Yngwie go, sorry, you hear Yngwie go, come on. And then you hear just Blackmore turn up the distortion, you know, and I was like, I was like eight years old. I'm like, holy shit. And like I've said this before, the story behind that is they didn't want to do this. They didn't want to do any of it. They didn't want to go to Japan. They didn't want to do an album. They don't want to do a live album. And they said, all right, if we're going to do it, we're going to use our own engineers. We're going to use our own people. And it's not getting edited. It's not going to the studio. You're going to get what you get. And what you get is absolute 100% pure live concerts, two nights in Japan. And it was fucking unbelievable. And even back then, people were overdubbing live albums. Oh, absolutely. Kiss Alive was as overdubbed as it got. I think Gene Simmons said only the drums are live on that album. Yeah, it's just so overdubbed. But I mean, Made in Japan is pure live album, as pure as it gets. And those guys were fucking on their game that night. The band, the engineers, everybody involved was on their game those two nights. That's what it takes? And they didn't really listen to it. They didn't listen to it till they got back to the States and they get into it. And they were like, holy shit. Like this shit came out good. I think, I think going to Japan, you know, the fans in Japan are crazy about they like a band. And I think that gave them the confidence. American rock and roll too. Yeah. That's right. That's launched. And then they put out Made in Europe. Didn't compare. No, they didn't.

See, I do like that kind. I don't like this current, from the 90s on, even maybe the 80s. 80s. I just stopped. It turned into pop music. It's pop country. It's not country music. It has to mean something. It's going for the Western. You could sing about crying in your beer, but make it meaningful. They're all pretty boys.

I think they are. I think they are. I think they should be. They better be. Come on. And they really stayed relevant from the 50s through all that change in the 60s going into the 70s. Yep. The TV show. They were still relevant. And I think next to Carly Simon, Bowser has the best mouth in Rock and Roll. Oh, my. Oh, my. Boom. Boom, my friend. Low C. C. No, they're not in the Hall of Fame. They're not in the Hall of Fame. They're not. They're losing the penalty box, so that's all that matters right now. I didn't get to do this. Bowser had it. No, because you had to. I couldn't wait any longer. I was doing show research. It's a valuable thing. Listen, I'm with you, buddy. I know. And Lou is making bad jokes about Carly Simon and Bowser. Well, he is sitting on the porn couch. Don't mess with Carly Simon's mouth. That's all I'm saying. I said he had the second best. That's the best. I can't even compare. And I said Sheryl Crow is number two. Why is she so good? She's got a good mouth. I've seen it. I've seen better. Give me an artist other than Carly Simon has a better mouth than Sheryl Crow.

I met him on a Smith's chat site and he was a total asshole. Oh, he's right. You probably loved him right away. Yeah, that's right. He was a total like, he would just tell it like it is. He's not even like polite about it. He just, and I just, we went back and forth and I was like, I kind of like this guy. He's pretty cool. I like him.

What's that, Lou? Nice and funky. That was his funky period. Oh, okay. Apparently the band opened up for him on that. And they were like, they were scared shitless to play. They go up in front of Miles and they hated it. There was a dread. You get selected by him. Better show up. You better be good. Wow. That was like James Brown. He could hear everything. He knew everything. That's a literally genius level to be on stage, singing, dancing, and still hear that the guitar missed a note or somebody's pitch was off. A drummer. Oh, and he would penalize the shit out of them. I wouldn't want to be his drummer. No, no. You're going to make a mistake. Although funky drummer, funky drummer. He nailed that. Yeah. That funky drummer, drummer. Let's see. October 12th, 1972. Diana Ross makes her acting debut, of course, in the successful film. In 72? Yeah. Mahogany? No. Come on. Come on. Where you going? Super.

Gunnering her first Academy Award nomination for Best Actress. Never came close, really, after that. Diana Ross? She got a nice one. I don't know. I just like... They're all second to Carly Sings. Yeah, yeah, yeah. There can be an argument for second place. Okay. I'm unwrapping it right now. Ready? Here we go. Here we go again. I'm afraid to open my mouth with this show. No. November 3rd, 1972. We're moving through to 72 pretty fast. James Taylor and Carly Simon, my girl, are married in a tiny ceremony in Simon's Manhattan apartment.

On November 12th, 1972, 51,778 fans packed San Diego Stadium for a concert promoted by KGB AM to see Jay Giles Band, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Foghat, and Doctor Hook and the Medicine Show. That's a pretty diverse concert. And early in Foghat and Jay Giles' career. Yeah, yeah. Very early. Jay Giles must have been off the hook. They must have had so much energy. Back then, yeah. They had an Al Mountain 72 also. Yeah. Doctor Hook from New Jersey. Yeah, yeah. November 26th, 1972, family touring North America as the warm-up act for Elton John played their last concert on US soil in St. Petersburg, Florida.

New Year's Eve. What's that? It says Petty. Yeah. It's for equipment. Let's see. On New Year's Eve, December 31st, 1972, the first New Year's Rockin' Eve with Dick Clark airs on NBC before moving to ABC, with Three Dog Night as the featured act, Blood, Sweat, and Tears, Helen Reddy, and Al Green also perform. And a five-year-old Ryan Seacrest. Yeah. Let's see. And really, nothing else happened in 1970. That was pretty—it was a lot of interesting stuff. I don't think anything happened after December 31st. Usually, there's a little leftover at the bottom of this list. It's like also—it's like an afterthought. You couldn't have squeezed it into the timeline. There's always this group of bullets, and it's all also in 72. Why didn't you just put it in the timeline, people? Lazy editing. Lazy. Lazy. Let me jump—see, this is where the laptop comes in. I can jump to different pages. Let's see. Bands that formed in 1972. ABBA. Yeah. Ace. Ace. How long has it been going on? Alabama. They were one of the groups that ruined country. Look how long it took them to do it from 72 until whatever. They were determined to ruin country music. Average white band. Pick up the pieces. People still don't know they're Scottish. They're Scottish, yeah. I know. Captain and Tennille. 70s hottie. Tony Tennille. Tony Tennille was the 70s. She had that haircut that—what's her name? The figure skater. The Dorothy Hamill haircut. That was called a wedge. Is that what it was? I think it was called a wedge. Yeah. I think once Dorothy Hamill won the gold medal in figure skating and everyone started calling it like the Hamill or something. I don't know. It was the Mark Hamill. It was the Mark Hamill. Oh, God. East Street Band was formed in 1972. Free. The band Free was formed in 72. That didn't last long. No. The Jam. The Jam. 1972 they were formed, yeah. You just got me on that one. Yeah, right? Talk about bands from the difference in music. You know they weren't the jam that we know. No, no, no. And Love Unlimited Orchestra. What was her big hit? It was Barry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra. Okay. Except when he started singing with it, that's when it became Barry White and the Love Unlimited. But he was conducting them, I believe. Let's see what I have here. Bands that broke up. I already said that. No, I didn't. Bands that broke up in 1972 are Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jefferson Airplane. Kinda. Yeah. It kinda broke up. Yeah, Stevie Van Zant, Little Steven, born in Winthrop, Massachusetts. Did not know that. Wow. Winthrop Hospital. Yeah. I actually went in Wikipedia and put a little bullet in there about that. Cool. I contributed to Wikipedia. Look at me. But did you donate? Did you give a dollar? They ain't getting my fucking money. I don't give it to them either. Bunch of liberal communists. Watch. Here we go again. No. I'm just kidding. Wikipedia. Because someday, Milk Crates and Turntables is going to be in Wikipedia. That's my goal. You can add it, you know. We should, shouldn't we? Yeah. Why not? All of a sudden, viewership jumps like by seven. Have the chronology, the members. Yeah. Martha and the Vandellas break up in 1972. MC5 breaks up in 1972. Whatever. Overrated, maybe? Eh, yeah. Yeah, pretty much. Break out the jam. Isn't that like the one, the big song? Bluerse Colt did it better than they did. Yeah. Them breaks up in 1972. Van Morrison. Leading to Van Morrison's solo career. And the Velvet Underground breaks up in 1972. Who cares? Exactly. Exactly. Again. I'm not a big Lou Reed fan. I know they're so influential. Lou is alright. Lou is alright. I mean, one of the best concert albums ever, Rock and Roll Animal. Yeah. Great, great concert. I mean, one of the best intros to a song ever, Sweet Jane, the intro to Sweet Jane on that album. He just suffered from classic. It's not long enough. It's not long enough for me. It is the longest, one of the longest intros ever. Oh, good Lord. He just suffered classic rock burnout. Like the radio stations, he's played a couple of singles from him. I don't know. And then you get him in the 80s and he's like, and I love you, Suzanne. I love you in the noon time. And he's like, Dan, I'm like, Lou, what are you doing? Well, he also moved, he moved to New Jersey. He lived there. He was like New York City guy. He moved to the suburbs of New Jersey. Yeah. And he got rid of coal. Then he did those Honda scooter commercials. Oh, Lou Reed on a scooter. Yeah. Buster bad-ass on that scooter with leather jacket on the dirty Boulevard. Let's see. Let me move over to here. Albums that came out in 1972. So I might not have all of them, but I'm going to go month to month. And I know you guys have your lists, right? So of course, I'm just going to cross out whatever you say. Yeah. But feel free to comment on the need. I mean, that's, you know, by the way, Scott, there's one out of my not going to bring up because I know Lou's going to bring up. That's all I'm saying. Let him bring up. He knows what I'm talking about. And there's one movie he's going to bring up. Well, you know what? Let's start an album. There's an album. I could build this up. But I got to jump right into it. Lou, give us the album. The debut album by Bluerster Cult. The anonymously titled Bluerster Cult. Hang on. With the classic track, she's as beautiful as a foot. City's on flame with rock and roll, the whole thing. The other one is Andy Williams, the love song from The Godfather. Ah. It's actually an album. Of course, the movie came out in 72 as well. Yeah, it did. That's right. So you know that theme song. Do you guys know the title of that song? I don't. The theme from The Godfather. Yeah, right. That's what I knew. It's called Speak Softly, Love. Speak Softly, Love. Check out the brain on Lou. You're a smart motherfucker. Yeah, thanks. I'm hungry. Yeah. Let's see. Music by Carol. This is in January. Music by Carol Kane came out in 72. So she must have had two albums that year. It's called Music? She had one album called Music, then Tapestry came out probably later on, right? Yeah. Yeah, it did. She had two. She had two. American Pie, Don McLean. Can anyone name another song off that album? Narcissisma. Look at Lou. Fuckin' Lou is just like... Mark, what's wrong with you? That's like the album that has, by Harry Chapin, what's his big hit? Cats in the Cradle? Name another song off that album. Yeah. Fuckin' worst song ever. I got American Pie. I got American Pie for Christmas. That was my first cassette album. My dad got me a cassette player and I got that album for Christmas. The only song I liked was American Pie. Everything else was like, what is this? Not quite for a 10-year-old. But that dude made Bow Load O' Money on that. Good documentary that I just watched recently. I mentioned it a few shows back on American Pie. Oh, yeah, yeah. That's right. Where he says at the end that God basically, the meaning of the Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost took the last train for the coast, basically meaning God sold out. He's going to LA. And I had some Christian friends that didn't like that I put that out there. And I was like, what's that? You're interpreting? I said, no, this is the guy. This is the guy that wrote the songs. And they're like, well, that's his interpretation. He wrote the songs and his interpretation is really the only one that matters. And then I showed the clip of him actually saying that and they're like, they still refuse to believe that. It's amazing how people hang on to something from a song. Yeah. Right. There's that thing in Genia Fleck thing, you know, that stuff. But Donna Klain is actually Jewish. Yeah. Yeah. So he wouldn't acknowledge the Son because Jesus and according to the Jewish Lord, he's not the Son of God. A Jew with the last name McLean. I got to look into my history. Have you done the, what's the new DNA test? I don't know. They will never get my DNA. I haven't done it. My brother did. I let my cousin do it. He's like, we got Viking in our blood. I was like, okay. Dude, look. Yeah. I could see you on a little boat coming into the English Channel. We're here to kill all of you right now. Yeah. Yeah. I was going to let my beard grow in that whole thing. I'm like, no, I can't do that. Throw logs on Sunday afternoon for fun. Yeah. So where I work with the horses now, the therapy horses, and one of the women that does it, she teaches yoga with horses and she's very good. And she has this horse and it's a, what kind of horse is it? It's like a Clydesdale. It's in that kind of family, right? It's not as big. It's not as tall as a Clydesdale. Yeah. But this thing is like white with like black on it. It's got one blue eye. Oh, cool. And I'm like, that is a fucking Viking horse if I ever saw one. It's got the fur around the hooves. Take a picture for us. I will. You know what? I will. I'm like, if I ride any horse, it's going to be that one. That is a fucking Viking horse right there. Yeah. Have you ever ridden a horse? Years. Long, long time ago. Right now I'm just doing groundwork with them. And that's what I really like because it's more of the behavioral aspect and figuring them out. And you never can though, but it's, you know, and then watching how they really do help people. Like we have veterans that come in with PTSD and we have treatment centers that come in and, you know, like you get these guys and they're just like, this is so fucking cool. It's such a, it's almost like a, it's, it's kind of an under the radar type therapy, but it's, it's really, it's really fucking amazing stuff. I'm sure, I'm sure. I went to a farm and there were goats, old, young, and they all came and surrounded me and I wasn't afraid, but it was the coolest thing, you know, the smell for one thing. But you're like. Smell like a goat. We used to say that. Yeah. Right. I mean, they're not threatening, but you know, they actually like you, you know, but to be surrounded. The horses are just so powerful. Oh yeah. Like just to be next to you, this, this guy today, he even said, he goes, wow, this is like, this is amazing when you're up close with them and then just stand in there and they're very mellow and they're just very calming. They're huge. Yeah. Fucking powerful. Big animal. Yeah. I got kicked in the stomach by a Shetland pony when I was a kid.

"Let's see. Over in the UK, Close to the Edge by Yes came out. And Black Sabbath Volume 4 came out. Yeah, the stoner album of their kind. Yeah. My first image of Black Sabbath was looking through my sister's albums and I saw the cover and I thought they were like a hippie band. Because on the cover, Ozzy's like, you know, he's like doing that. This is some hippie band. Snowblind. Is it Snowblind on that album? Snowblind, Changes, that ballad. Let's see. November 1972. Catched Bull at Four by Cat Stevens. Big album. Yeah. All Directions by The Temptations. Then, a month after it came out in the UK, Days of Future Past by The Moody Blues came out. This album, I can't believe this is an album because it's only known for one song and that's the title song. Ben by Michael Jackson. Based on a stupid movie. Best song ever written about a rat. They should have just left Will It Alone because that was a good movie in itself for its time. Ben, you're always running here and there. Yeah. It's terrible. Wait, Lou, sitting on that couch and singing that, it's just disturbing. Rat. Let's see. Rock of Ages by Band. That's how they got it. Great live album. Unleash the Lou on this one. Why did they just tell you they just wrote band, not the band? It's the band. I know. I'm like, what the fuck, people? That's a great album. Is that the Academy of Music? Alan Toussaint did the horn arrangements, but they did the album with a horn section. It's great. If you're a band fan, it's cream. Never a Dull Moment finally came out in the US a month later by Rod Stewart. Rhymes and Reasons by Carole King came out in the US in 1972. So she had three albums that year. Three albums, yeah. Yeah. And then a month later, the London Chuck Berry Sessions were released in the US. Then you jump over to the Across the Pond. What do we have? Anything? Let's see. Back in Front, Gilbert O'Sullivan. The Best of Bread. Baby, I'mma need you. Good time, man. Baby, I'mma need you. In December 1972, getting to the end of the year, 7th Sojourn by the Moody Blues. Sojourn. Sojourn. Is there an R in there? No, it's J-O-U-M. I thought it was Sojourn. Is it R-N? Is it R-N? Sojourn, meaning a journey. They have it here. S-O-J-O-U-M. Sojourn. It's like sorghum. Is it a gluten-free album? Sojourn in Gomorrah. Let's see. All Directions by the Temptations. Fourth time you're mentioning that. Yeah, I know. I don't know. They just keep repeating these things. They came out in Yugoslavia that year. Number one in Yugoslavia. Living in the Past, Jethro Tull. Let's go. Did I say Close to the Edge by Yes? I did. One of my favorites. And what song was on that? And You and I, one of their best songs. And I think I mentioned this at the beginning. Summer Breeze, Seals and Crofts. You did not. Yeah, Summer Breeze came out in December. Summer Breeze in December, that's good. And Caravan Ciari by Santana. Yeah, hit the album that made him not popular anymore. It was a jazzy album. Really? Yeah, very jazzy. Like a Miles Davis of that period, very experimental. Yeah. He ran his course with me. Let's see. What do you guys got for Stuff? You want to go first? Sure. Jackson Brown's self-titled, his debut album. Jackson Brown. Doctor My Eyes and Rock Me on the Water. And I got a stye in my eye tonight. And you're talking about Doctor My Eyes. Yeah. Pause me. Dave Edmonds put out the album called Rock Pile that had I Hear You Knockin' on It. Recorded. Recorded at Rockford Studios in Wales, which we discussed on the show. Like Rockford, like Rockford Files. Harry Chapin put out the album Hearts and Tales with the song Taxi on it. Remember the song Taxi? It's a great song. I put on my Facebook page a couple weeks ago. I had some friends just disparage it. No, that's a great song. It's a great story. What is it? She handed me $20 for a 250 fare and said, Harry, keep the change. Now another man might have been angry. And another man might have been sad. But another man never would have let her go. That's pretty good. What's that? That's pretty good Harry Chapin. I got skills. That's why I'm the lead singer. My favorite song of Harry's is 20,000 Pounds of Bananas. Nothing beats that. That's great. It's like me with Nelson. It's Lime and the Coconut. I just love that fucking song. I really do. Only Kermit the Frog can sing that. I love that fucking song. I don't know why. And everybody misinterprets the song. He can't get it out of your head. I think a lot of parrotheads like that song too. Get out of here. It's Island. Parrotheads are done. No, there's going to be a thing now. Remember Jimmy Buffett. Good luck with that. You guys know who Lee Michaels is or was? Do you know what I mean? You know what I mean? That was a two-piece band. Yep, it was like the precursor to White Stripes in a weird way. It was the drummer. You know who the drummer was? No. Bartholomew Smith Frost. To join. What's that? Did he join like a band after? Oh, I don't know. It was a drummer and a keyboard player. I love that name. Bartholomew Smith Frost. BSF. Rock of Age. We said that one, right? America did the album, put out the album Homecoming with Ventura Highway on it and Don't Cross the River. Ventura Highway. See Lee did. Can't buy a thrill. Robert Kirkman says that parrotheads are going to be like deadheads. It's going to have to be a Jimmy Buffett tribute band. Deadheads beat the hell out of parrotheads. They don't even fight. Parrotheads don't care about music. Deadheads don't fight though. They don't fight. Oh, I've seen them. How about this? Like this? No. I saw some blood. There's a lot of closet parrotheads. I think it's a guilty pleasure thing. Yes, it is. I've seen them on my Facebook page. A lot of people like paying tribute to them. You're a parrothead. So Lou, you just mentioned Staley Dan and I sent you guys that clip today of Kid Charlamagne live last night in Boston. Did you share it on my Facebook page? I think I texted. I sent you a text. You know what? For such a perfectionist... You and Mark, I sent you guys a text. Yeah, for such a perfectionist, the guy that spent, you know, a one year recording one solo, why is he letting it get... Well, it could have been one bad show though, you know. I don't know, man. I don't know. I just think he's just mailing it in. He's doing it for the money. I talked to somebody today that saw the... at the Madison Square Garden Eagles and, you know, I can't say Staley Dan because Becker's not there. And he went, he's a Staley Dan fan. He said, I have to say that the Eagles... Uh oh. Mark's cutting out. He's cutting out. He's frozen. Uh oh. There you go. Are you there? Yeah. I'm just shaking my head so you can see. So he said that he went... It's insane I'm having connection issues. Anyway, he said he went as a Staley Dan fan, but he said the Eagles were better. And I think what he meant was Staley Dan didn't sound so good. I think, you know, at the heart of the band, the soul of the band is gone. It's just a bunch of studio guys around. Yeah. How old is Fagan now? He's got to be 75 or something. Yeah. Yeah. You have to see how these old guys can sing at that age. Yeah. He said Don Henley had it. Don Henley sang perfect. They set their bar very high. Yeah. I know Don Henley is very vain and they can't sing. He won't tour anymore. He doesn't want to be up there doing less. In 1972, the Eagles put out their debut album. Ah. Produced by... Glyn Johns. Glyn Johns. Yeah. The legend or Glyn Johns. A lot of people don't know. Recorded in England. That's right. That's right. Actually the first two records. Two or three maybe. Whenever they recorded with Glyn Johns, Jim Croce put out, you don't mess around with Jim. Ah. He was really good. I think he was really good. Yeah. Right. I had that argument with Jack and I still to this day say I'm right. He was going to be huge. Yes, he was. Jack said, whoa, whoa, whoa. You can't say that. He was going to be huge. He got the posthumous bump, unfortunately. Yeah. But those songs, I mean the quality of the writing, Time in a Bottle is on that. All of it is. All of it is. One of the most beautiful songs ever. His guitar player, he's a guy, Marty Muehlhausen. A lot of people didn't know that there was a partnership. Yeah. Great guitar player. Just beautiful playing. And I think what? Time in a Bottle was, I think that was written to his wife or something. What else you got? Frank Sinatra's version of Bad Bay Leroy Brown is criminal. It's so bad. I got to look that up. It's horrible. Something by the Beatles. Something in the way. He does this guy. He goes, stick around, Jack. It will show. He's being a rat pack on it. That's why I like William Shatner. I like his covers. Nobody can touch him. He's untouchable. What do you got, Mark? I got, uh, obscured by clouds by Pink Floyd. May never have heard of that album. It's one of my favorites of theirs. It was a soundtrack to a very, very low budget French film. Great album. On the Corner by Miles Davis. He was in a funk period, but Miles Davis doing funk was eight minute jams over a bassline. You know, I loved it. Great stuff. Chick Corea. Now, Lou, you know, Return to Forever. But he put out the album called Return to Forever. So a lot of people say it was their debut. It really wasn't. It was him. Very Brazilian influenced. He's number 10 and the most Grammy nominated artist of all time. Deserves everything. That was weird. Last week, Scott, we did the most Grammy nominees. The top 10. Chick Corea, this jazz fusion pianist was number 10. Up there with Jay-Z and Beyonce.

"harry chapin" Discussed on Milk Crates and Turntables. A Music Discussion Podcast

"Just do a music news podcast last night. Almost. But I'd rather hang out with my wife. I'll just throw something in there, you know. It is kind of easier for me to stay up late on a Thursday than a Wednesday, because I only have to get through Friday. But then I gotta remember, Lou works through the weekend, so. Yeah. I have Sunday on. I have Sunday off. Well, you do that other show. That other show. And I also, I do, for religious reasons and for money, I play the church on Sunday. And I have everything fixed this week. I have the comments is fixed. And we're on the right feed. We're on the right feed. Yep. Yep. YouTube is up there. I can get all these messages saying, I can't find it. And I'm broadcasting at 1080p. I found that. I was in 720 for a while. I don't know if people can tell the difference. Really? Okay. Yeah. So moving on. February 10th, 1972. David Bowie introduces his Ziggy Stardust persona at the second show of the 1972-73 Ziggy Stardust Tour at the Toby Jug Pub in Tallsworth, Surrey, England. Wow. So you had Wings debuted, and then a day later, Ziggy Stardust debuted. And the English were kicking ass in 72. Yeah. And staying in that realm. February 13th, 1972. Led Zeppelin's concert in Singapore is canceled when government officials will not let them off the airplane because of their long hair. You love that. That offends me. That was a big problem back then, right? Your long hair. You couldn't enter a country because of your long hair. I almost kept Mark off the show for his long hair, but he's a hippie. Hey, I'd get a night off. I could watch you guys. I'd get a night off. Like I cracked the whip on him. I have worked up some PTO, you know, Scott. Oh, I used it. I'm sorry. He is a Grateful Dead fan. Yeah, that's true. That's true. Let's see. February 14th through the 18th. John Lennon in 1972. John Lennon and Yoko Ono co-host an entire week of the Mike Douglas show. How fucking boring must that have been? You ever see any of it? No. All right. You got to check it. That's my video of the week. That's my video of the week. Okay. I guess I should check it. I probably have seen clips of it, but very forgettable maybe. I know you're a big Yoko fan. It's John. Chuck Berry is on a guest. So John and Chuck Berry are jamming. I saw that. You've seen that. Yeah. And the look on Chuck Berry's face is like priceless. Like, what the fuck is that? Yeah. Yeah. Oh, man. And she just did not care. She's like, I'm John Lennon's wife. I can do whatever I want. I wonder what he really thought. Chuck Berry? I hope he was all about it. Chuck Berry was his idol. Chuck and Elvis. So you're jamming your idol, but you can't hear your guitar over a caterwauling. Yeah. And how John Lennon let her get away with that is amazing. We don't know what happened afterwards. We know. February 29th, John Lennon's US immigration visa expires because of his co-hosting on the Mike Tubman Show. He got deported. Because of Yoko's performance, they've pulled his visa. Talk about collateral damage. Why'd they pull his? Why didn't they pull hers? Beginning his three and a half year fight to remain in the country. Let me back up a little bit. February 23rd, Elvis and Priscilla Presley separate. And okay, let me back up to February 15th. I had to jump ahead just to keep those two in order. February 15th, the United States gives federal copyright protection to sound recordings. Prior to this, phonograph records were only protected at state level and not in all states. Sampling, the rap would have loved that. The pop artist would have loved that. February 19th, a few things happen. Paul McCartney's single, Give Ireland Back to the Irish, inspired by the Bloody Sunday Massacre in Ireland on January 30th, 1972, is banned by BBC. Gee, you don't say. The controversy caused by the banning only increases the song's popularity and ends up in the top 20 in England. So why have record companies and people, politicians, why have they never caught on to the fact that if you put a label on that, it's just going to make it bigger? I think the record companies agree to it knowing they're going to sell more. Yeah, the record companies, you're right. I'll tell you that, that sticker that just said, you know, that sticker from the 80s. What's the lyrics? Guaranteed sales. I bought records because of that. Don't drink alcohol. Don't smoke pot. Yeah, you're going to do it. You know, it's the whole thing. When it becomes forbidden, you want to do it. It's music related. Also on February 19th, 1972, Sammy Davis Jr. makes a guest appearance on the television show All in the Family, leading to the longest laugh in the history of recorded TV up to that point. And I don't think anything has ever beat it. I think it's like a two minute laugh, like they just couldn't get out of it. They couldn't stop recording because people were still laughing. It was so great when he says, on three, one, two, and then he kisses Archie. Snaps the picture. That was a great episode. Second to that was, would you like some sugar in your eye? That was the second funniest. Which one was that? That was when Sammy was sitting in Archie's chair and they're giving him coffee or something. Would you like some sugar in your eye, Sammy? That's right, yeah. Let me see, March 15th at the 14th Annual Grammy Awards. In 1972, it was the 14th Annual. Hosted by Andy Williams. Winners include Carole King, Chris Kristofferson, Colin Davis, Michael LeGrand, Isaac Hayes. Nobody wore a chain vest better than Isaac Hayes, I'll tell you that. Julian Bream, Vladimir Horowitz, and the Juilliard String Quartet, and Bill Withers. And Bill Withers, yeah. Carole King wins Album of the Year for Tapestry, of course. Record of the Year for It's Too Late, and Song of the Year for You've Got a Friend. Monster album. Monster album. Monster band. With Carly Simon winning best mouth in music. She did not. Well, okay, best new artist, but there was a side. Best new mouth. That I gave her best mouth in the history of music. Greatest mouth. She won that award. I gave it to her. She deserves it. Doesn't deserve to be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and she deserves that award. Also on March 15th, LA disc jockey Robert W. Morgan plays Donny Osmond's puppy love nonstop for 90 minutes. Police are called, no arrests are made. Why not? Did they kill him? Why not? Did they shoot him? Yeah. On March 21st, 1972, Terry Knight announces he is launching a $5 million lawsuit against Grand Funk's new manager, John Eastman, one week after being fired as the band's manager himself. It triggers a series of suits and counter suits between Knight and the band throughout the coming months. March 25th, 1972, the 17th Eurovision Song Contest held in... Who cares? It's held in some Luxembourg or something. I don't know. March 31st, 1972, official Beatles fan club closes down. Wow. Yeah. In 72. Only two years after they broke up. Bunch of quitters. Really? What is the longest running fan club? I brought that up. Elvis. Slim Whitman. No, it's some other group. Longest running fan club. The Go-Go's. The Go-Go's. Go-Go's. April 2nd, 1972, John Lennon, the Yoko Ono, hold a press conference in New York. The Lennon's discuss their appeal against the US Immigration Department's decision to deport John. April 9th, 1972, first solo concert of Valerie Leonardo. Okay. As you can tell, I don't prove reason. I don't go through. Great show prep tonight. Great show prep. April 16th, 1972, Electric Light Orchestra makes their live debut at the Fox and Greyhound pub in Park Lake, Croydon, England. What does Marie Martin say? She says, Radio Luxembourg. Any singles became hits because of that station. Okay. Yeah. I'm Luxembourgian, actually. Oh my God. On my mother's side. He's a Luxembourgian on LinkedIn. Not anymore. Not anymore. Not anymore. I got bad. I shut down again. Looking for executives in all the wrong places. Electric Light Orchestra makes their live debut right at a pub. How did they fit on? With all those cellos. How did they fit everything in there? There was three customers. The rest is the group. They spilled beer on the cello. Oh man. Yeah. They were sitting in the audience playing. How does that work? What was the name of the pub? Fox and Greyhound pub. You know, England has like, why do they always have multiple names? I like Cock and Bull. Cock and Bull is the best name. You know, I could take a video clip that you just said I like. I could just clip that. I dare you. You gotta watch it. I dare you. I hear everything. I trust you. I trust you. Oh, look at that. What does he think of Jack now? Don't pick on Jack. Let's see. April 29th, New York City Mayor John Lindsay announces that he is supporting John Lennon and Yoko Ono and their fight to remain in the United States. And nobody cares. May 2nd. Very famous mayor. He was a very famous mayor. John Lindsay. That was like Kevin White was a mayor in Boston for a long time. He was the inspiration for the Mayor Lin Seed from the Batman TV series. Oh, good one, Lou. Thank you. One of the greatest series ever. May 2nd, 1972. Stone the Crows lead guitarist Les Harvey is electrocuted on stage during a show in Swansea, Wales by touching a poorly connected microphone. Harvey dies in a hospital a few hours later. One of the band's lead singer, Maggie Bell, Harvey's longtime girlfriend, is also hospitalized, having collapsed on stage after the incident. Imagine watching him, watching your man get electrocuted. I read up on that. They said it was one of the most horrific on stage executions. Like, people watched him for like a minute. Remember, I brought it up on the show a year ago. They just tried to help him. They would get electrocuted. No one knew. Like, put something over your hands. But he was writhing for like at least a minute, which is horrible to see. After he touched the mic. He touched the mic with his face. Yeah. He grabbed it or something. But that happened a lot back then. There's a lot of people. Keith Ralph died that way. I had that happen to me. In Elwood Park, I had a live mic. It wasn't grounded. And there's a cassette. The scream I put out is so high pitched. It didn't sound human. Wow. And I saw a spark. I had a burn on my face. Can you find that cassette? It's somewhere. Gotta find it. I know. I wish I had it. If you didn't leave it in the Walkman tonight, you were listening to B.O. Sad. If you want to see what it looks like, just watch Ian Curtis concert footage from Joy Division while he was still alive. He'd go into this trance and he would just start doing this herky-jerky shit on stage. He was David Byrne before David Byrne, I think. And Tom York. And Tom York, yeah. What Rolling Stone song has the words herky-jerky in it? Brown Sugar. And The Car of the Night. A herky-jerky little G.I. Joe. Oh, that's right. Let's see. May 8th, 1972. Billy Preston becomes the first rock performer to headline at New York's Radio City Music Hall. That's a good trivia question. May 27th, the Opryland USA Country Music Theme Park opens in Nashville, Tennessee. In June, it doesn't give a date, founding member Roy Wood leaves Electric Light Orchestra lineup just as the band scores its first hit single. June 3rd, the Rolling Stones open their North American tour in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. That's that whole Disgraceland episode about the Rolling Stones and Trudo's wife and the cocaine and the girl with faraway eyes and, yeah. Yeah, Marie Martin. You're acknowledging country. See, I do like that kind. I don't like this current shit from the 90s on, even maybe the 80s. 80s. I just stopped. It turned into pop music. It's pop country. It's not country music. It has to mean something. It's going for the Western. You could sing about crying in your beer, but make it meaningful. They're all pretty boys. I mean, there's no one like Waylon Jennings and Johnny Paycheck that were out just going fucking nuts, Merle. Just absolutely out of control, George Jones. They were rebels. They were literally rebels. None of the new guys have great mugshots. No. No, they're all pussies. The only modern one that does is Randy Travis. You know, you don't look too good now, but... There's a couple. There's a couple. Is he still alive? Yeah, he had a major stroke. Yeah, yeah. He doesn't... So he's made some kind of a... But he did have that classic look. You're right. He did have that classic country look, yeah. Perry will tell you that his biggest influence was Lefty Frizzell, who was one of those old traditional country guys like Hank Williams. Yeah, yeah. Lefty Frizzell, yeah. June 10th, 1972. Elvis Presley does the first of four concerts at Madison Square Garden. He sells out all the shows in one day, of course. Actually, not. He was... I mean, who was it? Someone sent me a message or a comment on Facebook that said, in 72, they said, Elvis Presley was hot in 72. Good looking hot. Not like a 1968, though. No. No, that's still... That's like the... Yikes. You got Elvis. Yeah. Yeah. June 14th. Oh, yeah. It was Marie Martin. That's right. She's the one that sent it to me. Yeah. Let me see. June 14th, Simon and Garfunkel reunite briefly to perform live at Madison Square Garden at a campaign benefit for Democratic presidential candidate George McGovern. He went big that year. Other performers include Peter, Paul and Mary, and Dion Ward. Jesus. What a... What a... Like a... Losing proposition. No. Concert that must have been. No excitement there. Nixon won 49 states, I think, that year. Yeah. Yeah. Landslide. George, do you know the way to San Jose? Yeah. That's the only state he won. No. City. July 24th, 1972, Bobby Ramirez, drummer for Edgar Winter's White Trash, is beaten to death in a Chicago bar fight reportedly because his hair is too long. Holy shit. That was a lot of long-haired shit, even from Singapore to fucking New York. That was on my album in 1972. It's about my hair. They mentioned the drummer. Almost cut my hair. Let's see. August 5th, 1972, Clive Davis signs Arrowsmith to Columbia Records at Maxis, Kansas City in New York City. One of his best signings. Yeah. Yeah. It definitely was profitable. Yeah. August 30th, 1972, John Lennon, the Yoko Ono headlined the one-to-one concert at Madison Square Garden to benefit mentally handicapped children. Have you ever seen the live stuff in that? No. It's good. Come Together. Elephant's Memory, man. Elephant's Memory, Roberta Flack, Stevie Wonder, and Sha Na Na also performed. It was still relevant in 72. Are they in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame? I think they are. I think they are. I think they should be. They better be. Come on. And they really stayed relevant from the fifties through all that change in the sixties going into the seventies. They were still relevant. And I think next to Callie Simon, Bowser has the best mouth in rock and roll. Oh, my. Oh, my. Oh, my friend Lou C. No, they're not in the Hall of Fame. They're not in the Hall of Fame. They're not. Lou's in the penalty box, so that's all that matters right now. Bowser. I didn't get to do this. No, I couldn't wait any longer. I was doing show research. It's a valuable thing. Listen, I'm with you, buddy. I know. And Lou was making bad jokes about Callie Simon and Bowser. Well, he is sitting on the porn couch. Don't mess with Callie Simon's mouth. That's all I'm saying. That's the second best. That's the best. I can't even compare. And I said Sheryl Crow is number two. Why is she so good? What is so great? She's got a good mouth. I've seen it. I've seen better. Give me an artist. Other than Callie Simon has a better mouth than Sheryl Crow. I mentioned her. Oh, shit. Not from the Divinals. Oh, suddenly last summer. Oh, Martha Davis. Martha Davis. Really?

And I've said this I don't know how many times, but he pops up every once in a while. I met him during COVID. I met him on a Smith's chat site and he was a total asshole. Oh, he's right. You probably loved him right away. Yeah, that's right. He was a total like, he would just tell it like it is. He's not even like polite about it. He just, and I just, we went back and forth and I was like, I kind of like this guy. He's pretty cool. I like him. Actually, you know, we've been friends for a couple of years now on Facebook.

That was his funky period. Oh, OK. Apparently the band opened up for him on that. And they're like, they were scared. They were scared shitless to play. But they go on for a while. They hated it. There was a dread. You get selected by him. Better show up. You better be good. Well, that was like James Brown. He could hear everything. He knew every. That's like that's a literally genius level to be on stage, singing, dancing and still hear that the guitar missed a note or somebody's pitch was off. A drummer. Oh, he penalized the shit out of them. Yeah, I wouldn't want to be his drummer. No, no. You're going to make a mistake. Although funky drummer, funky drummer. He nailed that. Yeah. That funky drummer, drummer. Let's see. October 12th, 1972. Diana Ross makes her acting debut, of course, in the successful film in 72. No. Come on. Come on. Where are you going? Super. She got nominated for an Academy Award in this one. Evergreen something. The lady sings the blues. Oh, that early. 72. Wow. Connering her first Academy Award nomination for best actress. Never came close really after that. Diana Ross. Yeah. She got a nice one. I don't know. I just like they're all second to Carly. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. There can be an argument for second place. OK, I'm unwrapping it right now. Ready? Here we go. Here we go again. I'm afraid to open my mouth with this show. No. November 3rd, 1972. We're moving through to 72 pretty fast. James Taylor and Carly Simon, my girl, are married in a tiny ceremony in Simon's Manhattan apartment. Then Warren Beatty jumped out of the closet and said, it's all about me. And Mick Jagger. And Mick Jagger, yeah. On November 12th, 1972, 51,778 fans packed San Diego Stadium for a concert promoted by KGB AM to see Jay Giles Band, Quicksilver Messenger Service, Foghat, and Doctor Hook and the Medicine Show. That's a pretty diverse concert. And early in Foghat and Jay Giles' career. Yeah. Yeah. Very early. Jay Giles must have been off the hook. They must have had so much energy. Back then. Yeah. They had an Al Mountain 72 also. Yeah. Doctor Hook from New Jersey. Joy easy. November 26th, 1972, family touring North America as the warm-up act for Elton John played their last concert on US soil in St. Petersburg, Florida. December 23rd, 1972, Grand Funk Railroad completing its 1972 tour with a sold-out concert at New York City's Madison Square Garden, with the proceeds from the concert benefiting the Phoenix House Drug Rehabilitation Program, and with the show being filmed for ABC-TV's In Conscience series, the band is met by a lawsuit taken out by their former manager, Terry Night, who attempts to block the show from going on, attempting to seize their equipment, and a court injunction is given later in the day, allowing the concert to take place. New Year's Eve. What's that? It says Petty. Yeah. It's for equipment. Let's see. On New Year's Eve, December 31st, 1972, the first New Year's Rockin' Eve with Dick Clark airs on NBC before moving to ABC, with Three Dog Night as the featured act, Blood, Sweat, and Tears, Helen Reddy, and Al Green also perform. And a five-year-old Ryan Seacrest. Yeah. Let's see. And really, nothing else happened in 1970. That was pretty—it was a lot of interesting stuff. I don't think anything happened after December 31st. Usually, there's a little leftover at the bottom of this list. It's like also—it's like an afterthought. You couldn't have squeezed it into the timeline. There's always this group of bullets, and it's all also in 72. Why didn't you just put it in the timeline, people? Lazy editing. Lazy. Lazy. Let me jump—see, this is where the laptop comes in. I can jump to different pages. Let's see. Bands that formed in 1972. ABBA. Yeah. Ace. Ace. How long has it been going on? Alabama. They were one of the groups that ruined country. Look how long it took them to do it from 72 until whenever. They were determined to ruin country music. Average white band. Pick up the pieces. People still don't know they're Scottish. They're Scottish, yeah. I know. Captain and Tennille. 70s hottie. Tony Tennille. Tony Tennille was the 70s. She had that haircut that—what's her name? The figure skater. The Dorothy Hamill haircut. That was called a wedge. Is that what it was? I think it was called a wedge, yeah. Yeah. I think once Dorothy Hamill won the gold medal in figure skating and started—everyone started calling it like the Hamill or something. I don't know. It was the Mark Hamill. It was the Mark Hamill. Oh, God. East Street Band was formed in 1972. Free. The band Free was formed in 72. That didn't last long. No. No. The Jam. The Jam. 1972 they were formed, yeah. You just got me on that one. Yeah, right? I was surprised at that. Talk about bands from the difference in music. You know they weren't the jam that we know. And Love Unlimited Orchestra. What was her big hit? It was Barry White and the Love Unlimited Orchestra. Okay. Except when he started singing with it, that's when it became Barry White and the Love Unlimited. But he was conducting them, I believe. Let's see what I have here. Bands that broke up. I already said that. No, I didn't. Bands that broke up in 1972 are Creedence Clearwater Revival, Jefferson Airplane. Kinda. Yeah. It kinda broke up. Yeah, Stevie Van Zant, Little Steven, born in Winthrop, Massachusetts. Did not know that. Winthrop Hospital. Yeah. I actually went in Wikipedia and put a little bullet in there about that. Cool. I contributed to Wikipedia. Look at me. But did you donate? Did you give a dollar? They ain't getting my fucking money. I don't give it to them. Bunch of liberal communists. Watch. Here we go again. No, I'm just kidding. Wikipedia. Because some day, Milk Crates and Turntables is going to be in Wikipedia. That's my goal. You can add it, you know. We should, shouldn't we? Why not? All of a sudden, viewership jumps like by seven. Has the chronology, the members. Yeah. Martha and the Vandellas break up in 1972. MC5 breaks up in 1972. Whatever. Whatever. Overrated, maybe? Eh, yeah. Yeah, pretty much. Break out the jam. Isn't that like the one, the big song? Bloor, Sir Cole did it better than they did. Them breaks up in 1972. Van Morrison. Leading to Van Morrison's solo career. And the Velvet Underground breaks up in 1972. Who cares? Exactly. Again. Again. I'm not a big Lou Reed fan. I know. They're so influential. Yeah. Lou is alright. Lou is alright. I mean, one of the best concert albums ever. Rock and Roll Animal. Yeah. Great, great concert. I mean, one of the best intros to a song ever. Sweet Jane. The intro to Sweet Jane on that album. He just suffered from classic. It's not long enough. It's not long enough for me. It is the longest, one of the longest intros ever. Oh, good lord. He just suffered classic rock burnout. Like the radio stations. He's played a couple of singles from him. I don't know. And then you get him in the 80s and he's like, and I love you, Suzanne. I love you in the noon time. And he's like dance. I'm like that. Lou, what are you doing? Well, he also moved. He moved to New Jersey. He lived there. He was like New York City guy. He moved to the suburbs of New Jersey. Yeah. And he got really cool. And then he did those Honda scooter commercials. Oh. Lou Reed on a scooter. Yeah. Busted badass on that scooter. With a leather jacket on the dirty boulevard. Let's see. Let me move over to here. Albums that came out in 1972. So I might not have all of them, but I'm going to go month to month. And I know you guys have your lists, right? So, of course. I'm just going to cross out whatever you say. Yeah, but feel free to comment on them either. I mean, that's, you know. By the way, Scott. There's one album I'm not going to bring up because I know Lou's going to bring up. That's all I'm saying. Let him bring up. He knows what I'm talking about. No, I can't wait. No, I can't wait. There's number one on my list. And there's one movie he's going to bring up. Well, you know what? Let's stop. There's an album. There's an album. I could build this up, but I got to jump right into it. Lou, give us the album. The debut album by Bluerster Cult. The anonymously titled Bluerster Cult. Hang on. With the classic track, she's as beautiful as a foot. City's on flame with rock and roll. The other one is Andy Williams, the love song from The Godfather. Ah. It's actually an album. Of course, the movie came out in 72 as well. Yeah, it did. That's right. So, you know that theme song. Do you guys know the title of that song? I don't. The theme from The Godfather. Yeah, right. It's called Speak Softly Love. Oh. Speak Softly Love. Check out the brain on Lou. You're a smart motherfucker. Yeah. Thanks. I'm hungry. Let's see. Music by Carol. This is in January. Music by Carol Kane came out in 72. So, she must have had two albums that year. It's called Music? Yeah. She had one album called Music and then Tapestry came out probably later on, right? Yeah. Yeah, it did. She had two. She had two. American Pie, Don McLean. Can anyone name another song off that album? Narcissisma. Look at Lou. Lou is just like, Mark, what's wrong with you? That's like the album that has, by Tom, Harry Chapin. What's his big hit, Cats in the Cradle? Name another song off that album. No. Fucking worst song ever. I got American Pie for Christmas. That was my first cassette album. My dad got me a cassette player and I got that album for Christmas. The only song I liked was American Pie. Everything else was like, what is this? It was not quite for a 10-year-old. But that dude made Bow Load O' Money on that. That's it. Good documentary that I just watched recently. I mentioned it a few shows back on American Pie. Oh, yeah, yeah. That's right. Where he says at the end that God basically, the meaning of the Father, Son, and the Holy Meaning, God sold out and he's going to LA. I had some Christian friends that didn't like that. I put that out there and I was like, what's that? You're interpreting. I said, no, this is the guy. This is the guy that wrote the songs. They're like, well, that's his interpretation. He wrote the songs and his interpretation is really the only one that matters. Then I showed the clip of him actually saying that. They're like, they still refuse to believe that. It's amazing how people hang on to something from a song. Yeah. Right. There's nothing in genuflecting, you know, that stuff. But Donald is actually Jewish. Yeah. Yeah. So he wouldn't acknowledge the son because Jesus and the son of God, a Jew, the last name, McLean. I got to look into my history. Have you done the what's a new DNA test? I will. They will never get my DNA. I haven't. I haven't done it. My brother did. I let my cousin do it. It's like we got Viking in our blood. I was like, OK. Dude, look. Yeah. I could see you on a little boat coming into the English Channel. We're here to kill all of you right now. Yeah. I was going to let my beard grow in that whole thing. I'm like, no, I can't do that. Throw logs on Sunday afternoon for fun. So where I, you know, I work with the horses now, the therapy horses. And one of the women that does it, she teaches yoga with horses and she's very good. And she has this horse and it's a what kind of horse is it? It's like a Clydesdale. It's in that kind of family. Right. It's not as big. It's not as tall as a Clydesdale. Yeah. But this thing is like white with like black on it. It's got one one blue eye. Oh, cool. And I'm like, that is a fucking Viking horse. If I ever saw one, it's got the fur around the hooves. Take a picture for us. I will. You know what? I will. So that I'm like, if I ride any horse, it's going to be that one. That is a fucking Viking horse right there. Have you ever ridden a horse? Ah, years. Long, long time ago. Right now, I'm just doing groundwork with them. And that's what I I really like, because it's more of the behavioral aspect and figuring them out. And you never can, though. But it's, you know, and then watching how they really do help people. Like we have veterans that come in with PTSD and we have treatment centers that come in and, you know, like you get these guys and they're just like, this is so fucking cool. It's such a it's almost like it's it's kind of an under the radar type therapy, but it's really it's really fucking amazing stuff. I'm sure I'm sure I went to a farm and there were goats, old, young and they all came and surrounded me. And I wasn't afraid, but it was the coolest thing. Yeah. Well, for one thing, but you're like smell like a goat. We used to say that. Yeah, right. I mean, they're not threatening, but, you know, they actually like you. You know, they're there. But to be surrounded by horses are just so powerful. Oh, yeah. Like just to be next to you. This this guy today, he was said he goes, wow, this is like this is amazing when you're up close with them and they're just standing there and they're very mellow and they're just very calming. They're huge. Yeah. Fucking powerful. Big animal. Yeah. I got kicked in the stomach by a shetland pony when I was a kid. That hurts. Fucking hurt. I don't know if we have time, but someday you got to tell me that story. All right. Let's get back to the show. Yeah. Albums that came out in January 1972. We always get. This is why this shit runs two and a half hours. All right. We got all these rabbit holes and it's like, Jesus. Let's see. Led Zeppelin four came out in 72 in January. Chicago at Carnegie Hall. Oh, I got that. That's a great. Yeah. George Harrison and Friends concert for Bangladesh. I got that album. Cat Stevens teaser and the fire cat. Carole King tapestry. Sly and the Family Stone. There's a riot going on. Yeah. Probably, arguably, most definitely the coolest band ever. Yeah. Sly and the Family Stone. Just the absolute coolest band ever. Interracial band. Just, but so smooth. So smooth and so cool. They weren't slick though. They weren't slick. No. Let's see. Grand Funk E Pluribus Funk came out. Round record cover. Just like a, I got that. Good. Any notable songs on that? I can't remember. He's drinking wine out of a funk. It came out. No, it's actually a whiskey classic. It came out of a mason jar. Might as well. Might as well. Come down by me. Come over there and do the mason jar. TV soundtrack, All in the Family came out. Soundtrack? Yeah. So they got the theme like for 45 minutes? Yeah, but like what else could there be? Is it the first EP? Is it the first extended? Probably 20 minutes long, 10 minutes a side. It's got snippets of the show. It's got Gene Stapleton singing opera. Let's see. February 1972. Let me see. They already had this one. Music. Hot Rocks. 64 to 71, Rolling Stones. The first one. Yeah. Faces. A nod's as good as a wink to a blind horse. Oh, that's a good album. It is. I love that album. Maggie's Farm. Yes. Fragile came out. Yeah. Monster. Yes. Name the songs on that album. Roundabout going into, I can't remember the name of the Rick Wakeman, South Side of the Sky, Long Distance Runaround, The Fish, Heart of the Sunrise. Yeah. That's the album that launched them. Yeah. No doubt. That's the album that launched them. Those were prog rock songs on the radio. They were hit prog rock songs. Yes, but they weren't up and done much. You hear Roundabout all eight minutes to this day on the radio. Yeah. A friend of mine, I mentioned him on Facebook the other day, an Italian kid from South Philly, right, grew up as South Philly as you could get. Like him already. Huge Yes fan. Huge Yes fan. My friend Dominic Marty. That was a warring camp. There were ELP fans and Yes fans. And I never got that because I love them both. You know, it's like they just- He said something about it. He didn't like them before so-and-so left the band or until somebody came into the band. There was something that you Yes fans always kind of- Prog fans, I told you, Scott, they're opinionated. Well, don't get five prog guys in a row. I didn't like it after so-and-so. If you had to choose between Yes and ELP, if you had to. Ooh. Sophie's choice here. Sophie's choice. Let me tell you something.

Thank you, sure. It's great to have you. And of course, the lovely and talented Lance unit officer I haven't seen you in so long. It's so good to see you again. I'm glad things are going well. I'm glad you're tamagotchi is still alive. More or less. How did you get a Pokémon in there? That I want to find out more. It's for the kids. But the kids, by the way, I was going to say that as a parent of adult children now. Whatever they're sleeping habits are when their babies get used to it. That's their sleeping habits for life. Really? Oh, wow. I want to tell you we're going to say it's going to reverse when they're teenagers. No, no. More broadly, the personality that you're looking at. That's true. Oh, yeah. That's the bizarre thing ever, because you think you have some influence on your kids. But they come out fully baked. They are the way. And it's so funny to watch the continent. I agree with you because my kids are grown too. The continuity is fascinating. It's Jennifer. Our daughter will go, yeah, remember when she did, she's still doing that. That's so interesting. Does it put things into perspective with yourself? Like how maybe you just have always had those behaviors? Well, the best thing about kids is talk about self perspective. They tell you the truth. You immediately know what a jerk you are. I'm scared. Throw it right back after you. Yeah, it's amazing. You know, I never, I never got better, but I remember when I first got a BlackBerry, how upset they get off your BlackBerry dead, get off it. They're like 8 or 9. Get off the BlackBerry. No, but I gotta get off it. They were so mean and now, of course, it all comes round. I'm at dinner with him. I said, get off the Instagram. Stop snapchatting. What are you doing?

"Anyway, this is described as Shibuya K and eclectic pop scene from Japan. It refers to the Shibuya shopping district of Tokyo. Anyway, it's should be okay. Indie pop. I think it was described as twee pop and sort of under the psychedelic pop genres too. Interesting. Yeah. Well, that'll be fun. And look at the album cover, it's kind of pretty. I do like that. It's even prettier, like, on the phone. I don't know. It's just, it's very stereo, except like none of like, well, maybe it is because I haven't looked at the lyrics too much, but I don't think that there are like marxists. So it's not like you go there and you go to the lyrics and you find like a political chant that just doesn't stop. Love stereo. I like the colors on that cover. You just show me it kind of reminds me of the sugar cubes. Yes. I think I've got a tie everything back to Björk and everything. So you should. Which albums of hers, if you listen to? I don't even know that I could name them because it's just like bits and pieces here and there, but she just always comes up. All right. The song, I'm picking the song for next week. Oh yeah. Yeah, so I picked this because you like to look into the meaning of songs and stuff. And to dive deep into the meaning. So that's when I have time. I don't know if you've heard of this song before. Today, how the song is cats in the cradle by Harry Chapin. I feel like maybe I've heard of it, or maybe I just heard of it on the spreadsheet that we share. It's an old song. Man, I can't remember if it was late 60s or 70s. It's a little acoustic Y folky. I guess. But no, you'll like it, but the song itself, it's a tearjerker. It's a tears worker. Is it about like maybe his son or something? It's a father and son relationship yet. Okay, so I do kind of know what it is. Yeah, I can do acoustic folky stuff sometimes, although the only real things that I'm referencing to when I say that are like maybe Carrie and Lola and Stevens, which I'm okay with. And punish her by Phoebe Bridgers, which is a ten for me. Well, no, this is a good song. I can't see you not liking it. I'm not worried about that. Especially with a week, you know? Yeah, I just think it'll be interesting to hear your response. Until I start crying on the podcast. Emotions of all kinds are allowed. No, not my emotions. Oh, okay. We got anything else this week? I'm going to actually look at the lyrics by the cocktail twins because I never thought to like the source. Well, yeah, I never thought to actually look it up on Google..

"He didn't really have any giant hits after that from 84. And you know what? The funny thing is is if you actually look at like in terms of like Grammy Awards and his, you know, him charting, you know, his song is getting on the charts. He did not have a ton that ended up on the charts. Like, if you look at the highest grossing, most popular, you know, David Bowie songs. His remake of dancing in the streets with Mick jag, which is a horrible. Horrible song. I like under pressure better than that one. Yeah. It's like number four in terms of the success that he had. You know, David Bowie was definitely he was an album oriented kind of guy. Yeah. Yeah. All right, so I said, what did I say, diamond dogs? What do you got? Did I pick so I have to go with space oddity. You know, they go wrong. Well, you know what? It was the first, right? So space oddity was my introduction to David Bowie. My parents used to play it. Right. You know, so it was one of those, you know, classic songs. Like, if you go back into the early 70s, you had a lot of singer songwriters out there that were actually writing songs that were stories. Yeah. You know, like Jim Croce was a story guy and I know one of your favorite favorite favorite people to Harry Chapin with cats in the cradle and that's like Harry cheap and I hate that song. Yeah. And I'm not saying that space oddity is on par with Jim Croce or Harry Chapin. But it had that kind of theme that was kind of like a story that was you could follow. And there was a lot of drama and there was a lot of mystery into it, especially for a little kid listening to it, you know, can you hear me major Tom? Like, you weren't really sure what happened to him. Not until scary monsters came out. But everyone ashes through ashes, right? Which is great, great song. Yeah, we know major Tom's junkie. That's when he finally came out and said it, but the thing about space oddity is this. It's very few songs very few performers can pull this off where they actually put you right in the moment of the song. You can visualize what's going on when that song is playing. It's no like Bruce Springsteen lyrics that none of them make any fucking sense on their own, but they sound good together. They started, he put you in there..

Harry, Chapin songs about people that have been terrible Life Choices. They're always Sumsung. It's just a bad idea. What so we took in an hour so far, there's are their stories you want to tell are there things that you have not told me about anything. You wonder marrying him concerts from I dead. You know, I just there's not necessarily a story, I can think of but I will say that when I have I have dated some relatively uncreated. Although that's probably be unfair. Shout out to All My Exes. May they be blessed and move on but it was German. Thank you next. Thank you next hardcore, but they have you know, when they want to be like home with a, you know, creative gift for me, they'll do they'll find out what my favorite movie is or my favorite whatever and they'll do that. Not one of them. None of all of the dude's I have dated has ever done anything in relation to Stevie Wonder and you can't keep that dude's name out of my mouth. Now granted. I'm not like every day like Stevie Wonder, see if you want. I'm not an insane person. Well, I'm a little insane, but I'm not like that. So how long he's been in the conversation. Yes, and it's it's probably playing in the background a fair amount of time. For sure is most of the time. So hence the wage. They are not subtle Jackie. They are not subtle and no one has ever done anything. And I'm not, you know, I'm not trying to be a brat. Like I'm grateful for every gift I get but like, yes, you can't get me a tee shirt that says I love Stevie. What took you there? Nothing nothing. So I would say like not a story but an energetic requests or anyone. The dates me in the future. Do something clever with my guy before he, you know, shuffles off the Earth. And this Mortal coil is Mortal for your brand. New brought you to the to that show. Yeah, that was incredibly long. Yes. Yes, like someone who gets you and was like, this might blow her mind and see if it does and it and it did it did. Yeah. And it was the same thing about that was that was so lovely is because of where we were seated. There weren't a ton of people around us cuz we were just kind of up so we got to dance the whole time at that concert. And that's, you know, that's my favorite shit off. And so dancing to my future husband whilst he serenaded just me and no one else and told me I love Leah was which oh, you know what? I will tell you this cuz most people don't know this. Another reason. I absolutely love him is because Isn't She Lovely wasn't about, you know, his wife or a girlfriend or whatever..

"harry chapin" Discussed on The Story Song Podcast

"Gone too far. So i'm going to speak a bit about harry chapin now we did do cats in the cradle and our first run. So i'm not gonna talk much about harry cheapen you know. I'm not going to get to deepen into cheapen. But i'll give a overview. He's obviously you know one of the most well known singer songwriters of our time. I have to say the more. I went through this. I told dan this. I think before michael was on the call but the the more i went through this i literally in researching. This started crying because he seemed like such a an incredible human being. He was not only an incredible singer songwriter but at incredible activist and philanthropist. That the more you read about him the more you just know what's been lost Let's talk about them a little bit. So harry chapin so. He was born in nineteen forty two grew up around music and film. His father was. Jim chapin who's percussionist. And after his parents divorced his mother married. Henry hart who was an editor for films in review and he cheated actually started out in the film industry and he worked in documentary filmmaking and he even because to talk about dreams unfulfilled dan. Ms film legendary champions was nominated for an academy award in nineteen sixty eight though. He's doing great. Why talking about unfulfilled dreams twenty six. And he's gotta be award nomination for crying out loud Harry obviously took a long time for him to hit. That's a lie. The kidding he his value was known from the start. He started playing clubs in new york city in nineteen seventy one and by nineteen seventy two. There was a bidding war on. Who was who. He's going to have a contract for between clive davis columbia and jack holes. Minute electra. and electra one. No come to the point. Where i think jack hausman said something where he stood outside his door at six in the morning and said i'm not leaving here until we have a contract on top of that. I think that's a quote from the godfather right. all combined. welcome by his debut album was heads and tails. You wanna guess how. Tales is spelled with a t. t. a. l. e. s. of is. Come on nice. It's like sole provider. Does right come on. He does of story songs. So yea if i mean harry chapin knows how to write a story. That's for sure It was a great success. It sold over a million copies it. Obviously you know this song. Taxi was huge and apparently this taxi song was so huge that a lot of memorabilia for harry. Chapin is taxi themed or checker taxi. So there's a lot of like stuff. Yeah of course so. This was on his debut album. It was on his debut album. He released albums the following two years. And then in nineteen seventy four It was verities and balderdash which was his biggest record. It's all like two point five million copies and had had on it. The number one classic hit in this like dice. Colonel cats in the cradle. oh nice. He's huge his biggest hit And he continued to be a prolific writer. He released albums every year until his death. I this i did not know. In seventy five he wrote and performed a broadway play called the night that made america famous and he earned two. Tony nominations a two drama desk. Nominations how does he write all this dreams. Unfulfilled stuff tony nominated. Maybe it's because he didn't win. Is that why i i also don't think that he won a grammy. Actually that he ever won a grammy one honoring grammy's like he won the he was in the grammy hall of fame and stuff. But i don't know He must have nominated for an oscar. Nominated for tony's so yeah and nominated for grammys. I mean no. That's why he's never won because they were like well. He can't ever fulfill a dream. We have to make sure that he doesn't actually win. Any that's right. He was up for best new artist and the person who won the same as the eagles and think alice burn some some other people but who was america is a bizarre year. Best of a for a best new artist but america is right great. America's wasn't that that's a that's a solid category right there. i'm saying but that year. I mean the eagles chief and in america alone and the other three were also big. Acts that i forget who was right now but it was incredible because i was like how harry chapin lose to. And the fact is vocal. Bet that's right. now he was. He was incredible. Like i said. He continued to be prolific writer. He released an album every year until his death. In nineteen eighty-one he's one of those successful and highest paid artists in the world at the time of his death and in addition to his music career he was an incredible activist and philanthropist. Bring attention to hunger poverty in america and Many of his concerts. I have his concerts. Were benefits organizations that he cared about Bruce springsteen said something in a concert. that's a basically Harry chapin told him. I do one for me. And one for the other guy He gave away so much of his money and and he was left with with little at his death Which gave rise to the harry cheapened foundation which supports arts and education community education and agricultural environmental programs. Unfortunately harry chapin died in a car accident on the long island expressway on july sixteenth. Nineteen eighty one. I i mean even reading this. I'm getting like choked up because the more you look into harry chapin the more you realize like how much he did not only for music but how much he did for society and like how much he could have continued to do because his ability to get people rallied and get people behind the causes that he cared about his really incredible and his legacy remains both in music and his activism. He's been inducted into the grammy's hall of fame received the congressional gold medal in one thousand. Nine hundred seventy or. I think an has an An cap humanitarian award named after him and in october. Twenty twenty the documentary. Harry chapin when in doubt do something was released so an incredible human being. He's thirty eight at the time of his death and just to think about what he could have done musically what he could have done You know for the world as a whole is a really incredible and and sad to think about but and did in his time in his short time is also really really really amazing. So that's harry. Chapin i'm going to go cry and curl up in a call Right well normally. I would end on a joke. But i think i was going to Wrap it up. I just want to say rachel. Because i didn't want to feel that i would like pushing you off the stage but i'm like i don't know what to say. That sucks. that sucks. Listen say is. I mean i would. I would sell to check out. Harry chapin foundation. They do a lot of incredible things and watch documentary and just see how many people really cared about this person and really Continue his legacy and his work. All right Let's take another quick break when we come back talk about the lesson. We.

"Wanted to really play a song songs that were very long So this dj. Jim connors on from boston's w amex he champs champion the song and it stay wound up staying on the charts for sixteen weeks and it was the most requested song ten weeks in a row so basically without jim connors. It might be that you know harry. Chapin would never take off number like he probably would. He's an incredible. But but he's like was the impetus for have a question. Yeah so he said the song is sixty percent true yes but then he never drove a taxi so which cannot attack. he had his taxi life. But i'm only saying but he thought what if she gets in my cab. Yeah okay so so the story together based on real events the lady's true and then and she also he also said that he based on the fact that this ex girlfriend of his married rich ran sort of gave up on her on her dreams and so was living that you know comfortable life. So that's where we're all that that comes from while i was hoping the other sixty one time. He found seventeen dollars the majority of the song with inspired by So shape and debuted the song on the tonight show with johnny carson became a huge hit And there's there's a story it can't be verified. There's a story that johnny carson was so impressed that he invited harry cheap back the very next day for encore performance but that was in seventy two and the The issue with that is that they don't have like the full episodes from seventy to just click on. So you know we you know. We can't tell but it was very impressive. He was on the tonight. Show like fourteen times. There was one time where he was singing. His song sniper and apparently Johnny carson and only gosh who's a sidekick ed mcmahon thank you ed mcmahon were so overwhelmed that they couldn't throw it to the to the commercial break so doc severinsen had to do it out so duck if it was like. This is my time but Can i just say something real quick. Yeah that's only ten generally related the reason why they don't have while you say the reason why they don't have clips is. After the episodes used the air they would wipe the tapes and reuse them. Yeah in saying we have before when we talk about like old like one thousand nine hundred fifty s. tv shows and stuff like your special show. Yeah yeah. But i'm saying but even in even the early seventies there were still there were like who cares who's ever going to wanted aired once. That's it no one would ever care and also videotapes very expensive. So they would wipe the tapes and reuse them. That's why most of most of the johnny johnny cash most of the tiny in carson. Tonight show is gone. Yeah it's gone that's why you see clips. It's only like a handful of clubs that they still have for whatever reason and the s and ninety stuff. But all the sixties and seventies stuff is gone. It's weird atoll. Yeah but the fact that you can't verify whether or not he was on the show you know now's was aired once and that was it against the list stuff it say that there's like a second encore performance. But it could be that. That's what was set to happen. And because he was so impressive the first night they brought him back then they didn't change it or whatever. The song was so popular that audiences would often ask about what happened to harry ensue. And so eight years later on an album sequel shape and wrote a sequel to the song called sequel. That was another seven minute song that continued the story of harry and suit. I listened to it. And i completely forgot to distill what the story is but okay i. It says that she's happy and stuff so But maybe we'll do. Maybe we'll do sequel. Who knows the song has been covered a few times. But most importantly william shatner performed on dinah and you guys you guys. I can't the mosier harry shape and brings out in me. Yeah if there was an opposite emotion I mean there's just such the the william shatner version is like an affront to everything that anyone should hold dear and out i will give william shatner. His do he says during the dinah like his interview he says. I can't sing. But i'm moved by singing so i decided by music so i decided to do this it is. I can't put it into words. I need like what my face is making express to you what i what i experienced. I just youtube william shatner dina taxi and menu need to experience it for yourself. If only.

"Talk about this for second. We may find conflicting information but she changed her name. That so the lady from nine and lionize all the same. This is all the same person. Yes one hundred percent agree with lionised. 'cause isn't there a part where it was rachel when you when you said that. She looks at the curtains and she's like she's still there. Isn't there part where she's standing there and pours herself. A strong one cuts in lying is yeah. I mean she married rich. Yeah to to escape. Oh my god. He picked her up from the cheat side of town. Oh that's what it is Yeah that's why she didn't wanna talk. She was that's right very focused. Yes yawn her alibi for where she was that. Yeah yeah not only where. She was also why. She's wearing a soaking wet so she's got a lot. She's got a lot of thoughts going. Their heads is a lot of story to make up to explain to her husband. What's going on because yeah so again. I think i think all three of those women are the same same person. He's got a lot of leftover lovers that she keeps running into awkward time. Yeah but i think i think. What's his aunt blanking on the guy's name. Sarah dan fogelman this. This is the part in the song where she's looking at the window and sees his cab. There she stares out at the stars up in the sky and then she looks down. She's like why is that cab. Still here they are still there another night. It's going to be a long one shade and hangs her head to cry. Come on because he was like wait. A minute seventeen dollars on a two dollar tip to for crying out loud mcgovern twenty first century.

Sure we'll taxi was written and recorded by harry chapin Harry chapin carpenter's this funding. It's not but they are distant cousins By harry chapin it was released march. Nine hundred seventy two on his debut album heads and tails. It reached number. Twenty four on the hot one hundred's number five in canada number nineteen in new zealand and number twenty on cashbox box. One hundred and number eighty five on the billboard end of year charts so we were talking about this before but cheapen said that taxi is about sixty percent true yes so half more than half so the su- and the story was based on a girlfriend that harrison had while they were both counselors for new. York's fresh air fund camps. She was a counselor at the girls. Camp counselor at the at the boys camp leur fairly young. The woman was claire. Mcintyre found this from his his brother gave a story to a clinic lower hudson website. she was the daughter of a former scarsdale. Mayor and eastern airlines president malcolm mcintyre and he did not like harry surprise surprise eastern airlines president. Yeah did they break up because this guy didn't get him a job as a pilot. But here's the thing he was also like like like involved in the air force like some sort of some sort of air force thing for the government. So maybe maybe he did. Maybe they were they he did have something to do with harry not being a pilot because harry chapin also did i think attend or wanted to attend the air force academy and so he wanted to fly at some point but he never did anyway. So why did. But why didn't he join the airforce. Like i don't know. Because he's harry chapin i was like i don't have a reason or he just like didn't do it. Delve deep into his air force Lifestyle i'm sorry i'll i'll do a i'll post on our website about it Just for you. Dan but Let the guys. I want to say this. I feel like my history of the air force. Podcast is really going off the rails. It's been a lot of time talking about stories on which i know you guys wanted to do. But i really want to get into the air force. Let's talk about it. Every time i bring it up every time i bring it up. There's a lot of like. I didn't do the research on the air force jet it. Fly right you're you know. I don't slow weasley. We'll see you next time on singer songwriters. Join the airforce yacht and you'll specific so he and claire dated on and off a for about two years and years later harry chapin was getting his taxi license and he i guess while he was waiting to get his they called the hack license he started thinking because he was going to be in new york city and he was going to be a taxi driver and the thing that he remembers. Is that so. Tom is harry cheapens. Brother tom and harry used to take the tom and jerry. Sorry used to take the subway but they would always say that clare would always have money to take a cap because Parents was very wealthier. Parents wanted her to take a cab and he started thinking about what happens if she gets into my taxi. What would i say And then it turns out he didn't have to drive a cab because e- got two job offers and he took them both but then i was reading something that his wife sandy said and she said that he did drive a taxi but basically it never happened. She never got into the cab but the idea that he was unsure about what he would say to this old girlfriend If she got into the cab was the impetus for the for the song you know. They'll most of his life was on the east coast. He was born in You know harry tape was born in new york. He all of his stuff was in new. York think spent a year in california but for the most part his whole life was on the east coast. So the question is like why did he set it in san francisco and to that. Sandy said he probably just came up with the wine. It was raining hard and frisco and went from there. Which if you come up with that for first line right solid you gotta go you gotta go with that. You got that So back then. The am radio was was big but they didn't never.

"Ten looks three from a chorus line was actually written about flying. Thank you michael to all six people who enjoy that. You're welcome yeah. Dan will explain that later. I'll it's about someone who she was an excellent dancer. Like a context clues i actually. I figured it out. So yeah you know again. I mean. I think that's that's an interesting thought rachel that that you know her well but the thing though is that it's matt's tough because the reason why they broke up was both the father dreams and then they find out that neither one of them did so it was kinda like maybe we should've stayed together or whatever or at least the reason why we broke up was turned out to be nothing. Yeah i mean it would be an interesting thing to have. Had there been like a joni mitchell. Do like a The other side of this story and tell suicide and you know what her feelings were about it. Oh and then we could hear both sides now. That's right but that's i mean i think i think there's just so much this is obviously we'll get into it in in story behind the story but there's this song is there's a reason. Harry chapin is harry chapin like this. There's so much packed in this song. Even in an every single verse right is all standalone and so You know he just has a way of like making you think about you. Know e- like you're saying it is a little bit of a literal like straightforward song. But within that there's so much emotional ambiguity to it and an ability to interpret what this person is feeling what this person is going through that that is. That's what makes it so great because it seems straightforward. But it's really not but that's also it makes it more realistic. Yes that's life. Life is about those emotional complexities as the stories unfolding. Exactly yeah i mean. Obviously i was joking about the straightforward thing but Yeah i well no. I was going to say i love that. You know. there's there's so much left unsaid. Yeah right because he's never like again he's never liked by the way she's loaded or by. The way never became an actress. Or you know by the way. I'm right now at my. It's the only other thing i'll say is that so. I listened to the song and then i put on Harry greatest harry tapings greats So there was this song there the first song on the album then. The next song was a song called like dreams. Go away or something. That was about a married couple. That like each ver- is another story song. Each verse was like oh. We're in school right now. We have to put our dreams on hold and then it was like. Oh you're having a baby. We have to dreams on hold and then the last versus. We're going to see her grandkids. We never lived out our dreams. And i was like and then the next song after that because i was listening to that song and i looked at my phone and the next one was cats in the cradle. And i was like harry because not only light this off. Not only can you write like we got the beat or something a happy light fun song. That doesn't mean anything. Okay it's just for people to dance to a but also be harry. I don't know if you know this. You are a successful musician. You'll live your dreams buddy like what is this subscription. You're doing great okay. You must've sorbet in between and it's crazy 'cause like he had a huge hit with his recording of the electric slide. So you would think that you'd put that at least in between one of those two songs right. That's what they but he rerouted it about. Electric slide didn't live stream is thinking about ending at all. So all right steve electric. I don't know yeah. Yeah yeah yeah. Now it drives a cab but it's being slide again Okay let's talk. Expanding universe x club with or is the same guy as same old lang sign. They goes around. is he. The same guy. He just goes around catching up with. I guarantee is she. Got out of that canvas. Snow turned into rain. Oh yeah without a doubt without a doubt maybe. The rain turned into snow. Oh opposite they didn't stop in a parking lot no but he was definitely drink in the nightcap. Driveway drove on the parkway I would think this is what i was saying. Earlier i think as they were driving You hear that chorus of angels. What actually happened was joey. was driving past them. The angels that were singing over. Joey's car sort of like jumped onto harry's cabin. They started singing. They were like oh joey over there. We gotta jump to back to joey's card like that. Yeah they were like doing an angel exchange. Give us two minutes. We're just gotta be help this guy out and then we'll be back to you promise. Every time he came to a stop light they jump to a different car. I feel compelled to tell the audience at home that that's the song run. Joey run that. We did a long time because i do like. The segment is good but sometimes we don't we just one like character name without explaining what we're talking about south. Hey look up. The song run. Joey run if you want to. There's a chorus sings and we decided it was of course of angel so make sense. Oh it starts off for strangers. You don't even have the whole songs in the first three seconds. That's a good point and don't bother because it's terrible so It's the greatest song ever written and i will have that argument right now I mean i have the album. Vinyl right here are present from a good friend of mine right extra. I could pull it out. So here's say this lady. Sue is her name perhaps perhaps if we we.

"The way i see is you know this is. I think probably he settled into this taxi. Life he's knows it's not what he wants to do. He sees this woman from his past and they were both had were so full of dreams. And it's reigniting. This idea of not being who he is so inning inside is this burning desire to be somebody else right. So wh- says i've got something inside me. Not what my life's about is i've been leading my outside the over till my time runs out right. So he's saying that his interior life and his exterior life do not match. He's atlas just saying he's got be dreams also this dream right well. I'm only saying because it doesn't like from a story song perspective like this part doesn't necessarily have anything to do with the story now. Now that does it. I'm just saying like in a more traditional. You would expect them to like explain what happens right you know like it doesn't say what happened was driving a cab but he still has these dreams of its explaining to himself as well as study says something inside me to drive a princess blind. There's a wild and wizard like hiding inside me illuminated my mind. Seventy just like sort of you know sort of filled with like. I don't know what like all like crazy energy and like rage building inside of him but there's nowhere for it to go because he just drives a stack the all night. Yeah i mean. I think that's i think that's right. I mean. I think that you know like i said he's probably has its. It's giving insight that you don't get a lot with story songs as the internal life of the person during the story. Because i do think that this is. This bridge is the spark. That's happening within him right like when you speak to somebody especially somebody am seen in a while. Maybe what if they're doing well and you're not doing as well. Maybe you're like smiling and nodding and having a conversation but inside. You're like what is wrong with me happened. Do you know what i mean like. There's so that's what this is. This is the internal monologue. He's having with himself while trying to make pleasantries with this person who has just stirred up all of these emotions and feeling of self doubt that have been lingering for a while. I just put a lot on. Harry chapin right there for you. We are so the next thing that happens is. There's this like falsetto voice. That sings what it says is baby so high that she's that she's skying yes. She's flying afraid to fall. I'll tell you why babies crying. She's dying aren't we all and there. It is harry to say. Hey here would just one comment. Jesus harry gummy come on. Holy moly like Really i mean and also that's puts a lot on on on poor su like i'll tell you why she's crying because she's dying. Are we all well here. Here's what here's i was gonna ask. What are we supposed. what is this like. Is this something he's thinking. Is this some third party angel floating above them like who is talking and are are they even talking about sue at this point. I mean i think so. I think that this is so if that first part of the bridge is about his internal monologue about himself. The second part is putting on putting his thoughts of what she's going through on her. She's probably saying yes. Things are great. I live near you know things are things are terrific And he's like that's not true. You're flying. let's aside harry cheapen. I get to tell people their emotions. It's what i do for a living so he said whatever she's doing great. Let's let's take that. But i'm saying like 'cause here's the only thing we know she gets at a cab. She runs into an axe and she's awkward. Yeah not surprising. So yeah again. Maybe the reason why she said is because she doesn't want to be in this awkward conversation and otherwise she's just great. She's great life. She cooks on sundays like going. She's starting like she really. She's really doing well. Yeah because we only know his like you know we don't have the actual information saying that. She's sad or that swearing a gown. She's a poor little rich girl. she's doing right. Yeah yeah. I mean point for her even if she's miserable right she's rich because harry is miserable and i've been there and i you know i'd rather be richard miserable. If given the choice so okay. So the other thing i want to say is i never. I have listened the song several times throughout my life. I never knew what they were saying right. Because they're like oh like ingelin voices from up on high like you don't really know what's going and i have to say i love this song. I love harry. Chapin's music i. There's something about this little like angelic chorus thing. I it happens in a bunch of songs. Not only his sons. But the i don't like it and it's just a personal preference but i'm just like it. It takes me out of the song that's happening. Yeah i get the point of it. But i also could do without it if i was an editor i i would have. I would suggest that he takes this whole chunk out because it's this whole song is rooted in reality and a very sort of straightforward. Like just the facts. Ma'am kind of thing and then report. I just feel like kind of comes out of nowhere. And and just seems weird. Well you're very big into literal Music writing dan. So you like. If it hasn't happened late you better. You better say it like just say it. Just tell me you went to the store. I don't know our speakers. I want the meal a simile. Don't those things i do. I want just the. That's your your record label. Just the facts right look. It's harry tape ends genius. He's doing fine. he doesn't need me. Tell them what to do. So i'm not. I'm not saying he did anything wrong. I'm just saying again personal preference. Gephardt always stuck out at strange to me. Well i i know what this part is for but i've got to save it for the next segment. Okay look at this guy. Wow all right and with that we're gonna be right back. Not the not the behind for the expanded universe. Make a note of that let it anyway. It's real facts. I don't have those. Why does michael like the part about wizards. We'll tell ya after the weather and this break.

I was happy but but no more Yeah yeah yeah so she. She does recognize him and she says how are you harry and i said how are you sue. And she said my name's not sue. Yeah the hell harry through the too many miles and the to money smiles too little smiles. of course. of course you get in but it took awhile but now i still remember while he looks like crap. Well here's my question about this whole first beginning okay. Does he actually recognize her. Does she actually recognize him. And she's just trying to avoid it because as we get into the story you'll see it's it's not a perfect story but An are is she trying to be like. No no no. it's not me Sorry sir you have me mistaken with somebody else more. Is it true. That is a truly that she's just coming. They're coming to the realization and being like. Oh that's who you are. I think. I mean i think she doesn't recognize him at first. I don't think she looks at him up to start that i think she gets in the cab. I think i think she does. What any of us would do. We get in a cab is sit down. Look out the window and not wanna talk to anybody. That's right no and again. I mean unfortunately this is seventy two but she would have immediately. Look have i gotten in an uber. Yes am i above opening up the notes app on my phone and pretending the tax. So i think that i think she gets in the car and she gives them the address and just looks out the window and it doesn't really look at them and when when he says You look familiar. She says he must be mistaken without having made eye contact us. Adchoices right cheap and song kind of mood. So she's and she starts looking in the Recognizes his eyes and then sees the license and it all comes because the other thing too is you gotta remember. She gets in the car. He's like hey lady blew whatever your dress and then he's like you look familiar. It's like no. I don't like you're you're you're you're doing a bit you're trying to pick me up. Whatever i'm not interested. Please leave me alone. But then she does like in the marriage. Ceases is the only reason. I say that is because otherwise. If she was trying to be like she didn't know she would just got all the way home and pretended that she didn't know the fact that she says she realizes who it is. It is famous singer. Songwriter harry tape in. She says doing harry. She starts to figure it out when he says taxi arrived just the other day picked up in the usual way when he turns on the radio and his song. Now i recognize you familiar voice. Yeah so yeah i mean like what what. What do we think's going through your mind at this point. I think i mean we get into later. But i do think there's you know they. They've we'll get into it now but they are in a relationship and if when you see an ex there's always the moment of oh how are you doing. And how do i frame myself to make sure i'm doing just as good as or better or everything's great. Everything is just great. It's not a sad smile normal. I'm happy with my life smile. I'm a billionaire now. I think that's what's happening is. Is that gauge of of how how how approaching this. We had a relationship. It's driving me home in a taxi. That's weird To begin with. And so how. How am i going to frame the rest of this. Hopefully six minute long car ride right you know. Yeah i mean yeah and there's like you know or even if you just like an old friend or something you know and there's that like like it's almost like you're going along in life and it's like a check of like how am i doing what. What do i want to say here like you've got a you've got to sort of plan those moments in advance and be like what have i been doing writing. That's what i mean. What is you need a checklist checklist. Every right go back to it every six months and be like what am i. Putting on my. You know. elevator. Pitch of my my years since i've seen right arson. It's like every six months like you should update your resume like you have to that for life in general resume like laminated card.

I definitely check. Do not wanna talk on uber. He is violating that immediately. Talk you know talking about storm. Say it's a shame down in the rain. Just other says sixty i later. Here's my question where you coming from that. She's wearing again in the rain. And what if it wasn't ruined by the rain. What if if she was just like excuse me. This is the design pig. Twenty five thousand dollars for this. Kim kardashian years ago wore a dress that was supposed to look like she was caught in a rainstorm to like the met gala. Maybe that's the whole deal. Maybe that's the whole deal. But i don't know what i mean. Also maybe gown. Maybe he's using gown a little A little loosely. But who knows or it's supposed to note that she's a super fancy lady. Well that's the thing we find out that she is very rich. So maybe this is just like everyday wear for her. Yeah like this is my uniform sheen. Nobody uses the word lady. Like harry cheapen his use of the word lady. The way he says it. The i get annoyed with the word lady. But for some reason when harry shape and says it. I'm like all right i could think of to people who use the word lady just as well as harry truman. I know you're gonna say mister kenny. Rogers no i was going to say jerry lewis and sticks i was i was gonna say jerry. He's never one for me by the way he not the first time. They've been mentioned in the same sentence together when the pollen halloween special. Thank you for teaching me up for my old standup routine. What if jerry lewis sang taxi. I would go a little something like this where you go in my lady. Oh my gosh. That would ruin the whole song. But i feel for her. He starts speaking and she looks out the window. I've definitely been in that situation where you get into an uber you get into a taxi and right away. He's a talk and you're like this is going to be the longest ride ever not. I'm not a person who speaks to anybody. I mean i'll i'll give you a polite like hey has has been okay and then after that after the first thirty seconds. We're both going to be quiet now and when you get into one and they're not playing music even if it's bad music if you're just sitting there inside oh what. A nightmare nightmare. Headphones always had funds plus plus. Unless he's singing this as they're going so he's literally singing to her where you go and my lady blue and then that would be more as it's like. This is going to be the whole time. He's gonna sing to six and a half minute long drive and by the way. He's playing acoustic guitar. And he does not have his hands on the wheel and the even if he's not singing you're going gonna get you get in that taxi uber. Lift whatever it is and the first fifteen seconds. You're like oh this. He gave me a nickname. This going to be one of those. Hey lady yeah.

Being a "Yes" Parent in a World of "Nos" (Part 2 of 2)

"You gotta I have an accelerator. And that's we have to ask ourselves. What's the higher purpose and that's really what we did at? What is the higher purpose of raising children? Well that's pastor mark foreman and you'll hear more from him and his wife Jan today as They talked about raising what they called. Big Picture Kids who love God and and make an impact on the world. There are guests on focus on the family and your host is focused president and author. Jim Daly thanks for joining us. I'm John Fuller. Hey John John. At last time we heard about the importance of saying Yes to our children and I try to do that sometimes. It's tough and sometimes it's hard to distinguish between you you know what's a boundary that deserves a now. And then what's a relational thing. That should be a yes and if you missed last time get the C. D. or the download and certainly get the book. Never say no. And we're going to talk more about that today with our gas but it is going to open up your parenting experience especially especially as a believer in Christ in mark is a pastor in San Diego. He and Jan have two children. Jon and Tim Foreman There in the musical musical group Switch Foot and the book that kind of forms the basis for a conversation that mark and Jan road is called. Never say no raising big picture kids at at market jam. Welcome back to feminist again. I love the conversation last time. Because I'm always thinking my in the right spot as a parent in my doing doing the right thing to help. My kids grow spiritually first and foremost and You Know Jan last time you talked about life being kind of like a deck of cards and I want to start Arthur again because we kind of went by that pretty quick. But what did you mean by that well. Every parent gets a deck of parenting cards from their your family of origin and We will automatically parent the way we were parented. So in my mind I see three piles one pile is a keeper pile l. for those great things that we want to bring into our own families but then there's always a discard pile where we have heard our mother's voice coming through US awesome. We're we're doing exactly the same things. It can be even subtle stuff but it has a different flavor but it is our mother or father coming through and we've definitely wanted discard that and do life differently. And then there's a rewrite pile where we have if we kind of want to nurture kids in that direction but we want to also do it our own way not just say your family wins. My family wins. But it's fine. The new US. What is that look like and I remember one time? We went to Mount Rushmore. And the thing that surprised us most. We're all the pictures of family reunions dressed identically. In t shirts they had some motto on the t shirt and I thought you know they were hoping their kids would play off this picture and and aspire to be great leaders but I thought the real story is going to be told by the motto on those t shirts in the same way we inherit from our families of origin mottos expressions ways of doing things. Talk these bumper sticker. A black could hang over your mantel in my family it was. What would people think and I lived under the shadow of that so? That's something very specific that I caught myself doing to my kids especially in ministry family saying I absolutely am Not GonNa care what people think I think tim is soccer. Uniform with cleats church socks. Yeah Yeah you're the pastor this trae that that make you feel well. I was raised in the church so I was fine with. You weren't apprehensive about feeling like no performance but then go ahead but just you know you can take those mottos and create a new motto and so in in our minds we could flip that around and say I want you to Eh. The Person God made you to be. Who cares what people think? I had to kind of be an iconoclast against that strong pressure that I was raised under in my family and in Mark Family we could talk about teasing is being or the motto in his. If you love someone you tease them right if you really loved him taste into tears and you know it takes a long time. I think it took me till I was forty two to figure that love language I was like Oh wow really love me Or if you really love someone you just work really hard and stay away from home working making money for the family man. That is so good mark. I'm telling you this morning I was on the Sofa. I got up early. I was on the treadmill. It's you know a new start and and And my youngest came down and we sat down over over a break not long ago I was talking about eating as many carbs herbs and maybe he should cut back on the CARBS and I apologize to him this morning saying no troy. That wasn't wise of me. Yeah you're you're you're in the right direction. You haven't even hit your full growth spurt. Yeah you know you're doing great. I had to catch myself but I needed to let them know it was wrong for me to comment. Ah Yeah that's hard to do for parents. It is it is because you're in that Rut My Dad was a you know. Post World War Two Guy So the way. You Love Your family. Is You just work hard. And then when you're when you're home you're off duty you watch football and hurt me. Yeah and so. I was looking for a dad that would interact. And we'd spend time in do stuff together and stuff and and I love my dad dearly. He's ninety he's just. We spend great times together now but it was kind of a cat's in the cradle. It'll kind of home. We'll get together then son. We're going to get together then And so when I saw myself starting to do that with my my son's At a very early age only now for God and for Ministry and Working Seventy hour work weeks a you know. I had a moment where I felt. God asked me. How will you feel if you win? Five thousand people to Heaven and lose your own children Because you're playing Harry Chapin Song and I said I'm going to reverse that song I'm going to get together with my kids now. Now not that. Yeah that's heartfelt and you know so many of us has dads. I mean we're feeling that. Yeah 'cause we're saying more next time or later. Yeah you know. We'll play catch but then you don't know how to do it. So what do I do. So I came upon a great book Doc That really saved the day. Ross Campbell's had a really love your child and he talks about a love tank. And when your child's love tank tank is full behavior. Problems are down when behavioral problems are up. Love tank is low so I wanted to know oh how to fill this. Love tank is this was going to reverse the Harry Chapin story and that was miraculous for me now. So so I discovered my boys that high touch eye contact and high time would fill their love tank. Think high time. Yeah yeah so the way I did it. When they were young was wrestling? We would wrestle half an hour to sixty minutes a day before for dinner we got was very gracious. Does give us a wife that my wife put up with a lot of sweaty bodies. The table will when they're older. It was playing soccer and football together in when later on it was playing music and surfing together and so active active. Yes spending time hanging out. Let me ask you though the the issue of failure You know again. I think one of the things that we struggle with as Christian parents is our kids failing. And hopefully if you're doing this well in the early years you're letting them experience failure so you can come alongside tried to instruct them and you use that Analogy last time about your boys right at the end of the program. Listen to music that frightened you because that's what you listen to before for. You became a Christian in somehow we've got to create an environment where failures okay. Yeah and I don't think and I for myself I mean I struggle with my my boys being able to give them that kind of space. How we recalibrate as inherent to say okay Try we do it. Incrementally I think the idea that we're going to raise our kids and then turn them loose on the world when they're twenty eight already go. Yeah that that. That's just she's not gonNa have them incrementally we increase their freedom which increases their risk of failure but it also increases their responsibility in their success. Just like taking training wheels off a bike and there's a chance chance of the child falling over
