Jim, maybe you define "radio hit" too narrowly, or just differently. I have no idea how one defines that term, especially in terms of different types of stations (top 40, AOR, whatever); maybe there are separate top 100 lists for different genres. But Whipping Post and especially, especially Midnight Rider got tremendous amounts of play on certain types of radio stations back in the day. Midnight Rider is a radio hit, without doubt. Sitting here, now being someone who doesn't listen to much radio (in the car it's CDs all the time), I am having trouble recalling Jessica and Ramblin Man, but Whipping Post is clear and Midnight Rider is one of those songs that one wishes one hadn't heard quite so often over the years.

Ramblin' Man is their biggest hit. That's like saying you've never heard Copa Cabana by Barry Manilow.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramblin...s_Band_song%29

Edit: Ok, I stand corrected on Midnight Rider. I have heard that quite a bit on the radio over the years. However, the other two I commented on never received radio play like Jessica, Ramblin' Man or Midnight Rider.

You guys do realize that different stations have different playlists, right?

Sometimes when I'm in other parts of the country I am floored by some of the music getting played on classic and oldie stations - stuff I haven't even thought about in decades, and yet gets a lot of play in Cincinnati or Tuscon.

One of the heaviest played songs in DC my freshman year was Modern Man by Four out of Five Doctors. Now, try and even find that on the internet. I couldn't last time I looked.

Of course Adelle, the Beetles, any super, superstar rises high above that, but all of these famous acts with two to ten hits fall into what I am talking about.

Just looked at the lyrics for Ramblin Man, oops, I certainly remember it now. Have also heard that one too often.

Just found a video of Jessica. Yup, too often. Just didn't recognize the name. Great music, though.

Edit: Well, that was easy.

Okay - I posted without searching - last time I searched for it was about four years ago. Things have changed.

Now going to order the remastered CD.

Here is my blast from the past:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wIT2DpdcPzI

I always wondered why they didn't make it big, they were fantastic. Hmm, 1:08 wordless repetitive intro for a 4:37 song, that just might have had something to do with it.

I will say that it sounded better back then. I suppose that is how life goes.

Wow - FLASHBACK to a previously utterly forgotten memory - but I do remember that song.

But it gets MUCH MUCH MUCH freakier than I just remember it. I had a Six-Degrees of Kevin Bacon with Robert Hazard. My college girlfiriend's father (lived in Philadelphia) had a jeweler he went to all the time. That jeweler had a helper named Robbie who was the absolute best at cleaning jewelery and fixing jewelery and even putting it together.

One day, my girlfriend's father goes in and Robbie's not there. So he asks, "Where's Robbie." The owner says, "Ah... he went to be a rock star. He's famous now and I can't get anyone as good to help out around here."

And that was Robert Hazard.

Okay - now that I've spent an hour in 1980, I'm going back to work.

My forgotten classic is David and David "Welcome to the Boomtown." from the 80s

"Ms. Cristina drives a -9-4-4
Satisfaction oozes from her pores
She keeps rings on her fingers.
Marble on her floor,
cocaine on her dresser
Bars on her doors"

I heard it on an 80s night on a local radio station and nearly wrecked

Wow - another flashback beyond the depths of previously retrievable grey matter. Had completely forgotten this one... and totally remember rocking to it now.

Nope, not forgotten! I think I even have their 2nd album on cassette. In a box, in the basement.

Kids, don't even bother asking about "cassette".

I see your Boomtown and raise you a Motortown:



(by the way, Boomtown is a GREAT song and definitely a forgotten classic)

Yep - that's another one that I had totally forgotten about - but do now remember. Funny.

I noticed the Monongahela roster was shot with a Coolpix P&S, but the Saudi was shot with a D80.
