Twenty songs from 1972

Wherein More Details are available

So that’s who the New Seekers are. I should go back to 1970 and cross out that song. While it isn’t that great a song, the recent update by Coke is even more insulting. Put a bunch of slackers on a city roof practicing hippity hop scat really references the touchy-feely narcissism of the early 70s. Uh-uh, I’m switching to RC Cola.

Two versions of a coke commercial charted? 1972, you suck.
