Thanks to this week’s “Digging for Gold,” in which we look at the second batch of songs from AM Gold: 1979, you can now cross the words “shriveled testicles” off the list of phrases you thought you wouldn’t read on the internet today.
That’s a wrap on AM Gold: 1978, friends. That means we have just one more year of Time-Life treasures to explore before our little experiment comes to an end. But as a wise man once said, all mellow things must come to an end. Or something like that.
As America celebrated its 200th birthday in 1976, two of its biggest hits were the theme song to a show about the 1950s and a retro disco number from a band recalling a fond night more than a decade earlier.
If there was any doubt that disco was quickly gaining traction in America in 1974, witness two of the three chart-topping songs highlighted this week. And then check out “Seasons in the Sun” so we don’t have to again.
