As I constantly work on Manning history, I often wonder how something like the "music of the time" influences people - both good and maybe bad.
I'm sure it does in ways most of us will never realize or willing to admit.

Some songs from 1973
Billy Joel "Piano Man"
Carpenters "Top Of The World"
Donny & Marie Osmond "Paper Roses"
Doobie Brothers "Jesus is just alright with me"
Godspell "Day by Day"
Helen Reddy "Delta Dawn"
"Knockin' on Heavens Door" Bob Dylan
Olivia Newton-John "Let Me Be There"
Paul Simon & Dixie Hummingbirds "Loves me like a rock"
Roberta Flack "Killing Me Softly With His Song"
Rolling Stones "Angie"
Paul Simon "Kodachrome"
The Allman Brothers Band "Ramblin' Man"
"Will it go round in circles" Billy Preston
