and now for the songs — August 26, 2021

73) The Carrie Nations (Lynn Carey), “Come with the Gentle People”

Another beguiling song from the Meyer/Ebert cult classic film Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

“Come with the gentle people, spread love across the land, come with the gentle people, we’re the only ones who understand.”

74) Jose Feliciano, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”

Feliciano’s version of “Light My Fire” became a #3 hit, but his “Satisfaction” (from ‘70’s Fireworks album) was even better.

75) David Bowie & the Lower Third, “Can’t Stop Thinking About Me”

1966, and indelibly Bowie.

“Remember when we used to go to church on Sundays. I lay awake at night, terrified of school on Mondays. Oh, but it’s too late now. I wish I was a child again. I wish I felt secure again. I can’t help thinking about me.”
