Twenty songs from 1973

Wherein More Details are available

What’s up with Tie a Yellow Ribbon? Not that I don’t appreciate the sentiment, but couldn’t we have come up with something more appropriate to pay tribute to loved ones away from home than a song about a guy getting out of prison?

I did not realize there was no love in my heart for Roberta Flack.

A conversation with song titles. Scene is a man and woman meeting in a bar.
Man: Let’s get it on.
Woman: Touch me in the morning.
Man: Will it go round in Circles?
Woman: Stir it up.
Man: Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree.
Woman: You’re so vain.


Thank you!
