Chapter 122: Hooked On A Feeling

70s pop & pop rock

Do you ever think about how lucky we are, that thanks to the wonders of recorded sound, we can still hear the singers of 40+ years ago preserved forever? You can listen to Michael McDonald drip his rich buttery coo into your ear like it was 1979. Mac isn’t the only unforgettable singer on these marvellously square 70s pop selections. Steve Perry had immediate star power on Journey’s first Top 40 hit. Toni Tennille’s voice wraps around you like a satin blanket on “One More Time.” And I hope the ‘ooga chaka’ guys from “Hooked On A Feeling” got serious points on the record deal; they’re the real heroes here.
