First Hit #1: April 17, 1971
When this song came on the classic rock radio station I hated it. I didn’t like the excess for the sake of it production, I found the lyrics to be a bunch of nonsense, I found the lead vocalist to be the epitome of everything wrong with ’70s rock. More than anything, I found it to be a really annoying song with an inclusive but ultimately meaningless chorus. I couldn’t wait for it to end and be replaced by something a bit less terrible.
I still think that.
