Enough of the damned politics.
Fearless Maria and I weren't able to get our act together to write a Guilty Pleasures tonight, so I thought I'd try something different. I'm going to offer you two video links from the late 1970s. These are two songs that I personally like a lot. Tell me if you think these songs work together well, because I think they do.
The first was probably the biggest hit for the Los Angeles funksters the Brothers Johnson, from 1977:
About a year later, we heard from the British band 10cc, who were a pretty spotty outfit overall but had a habit of hitting their singles on the nose:
These are two different songs but they have always shared space in my brain because they are both soft-spoken, minor key songs with a medium tempo with a somewhat dream-like quality, I guess. I think that's it, at least.
So here are my questions for you:
1) Do you hear the same thing I hear?
2) Are there any two similar songs that share space in your brain the way these two songs share space in my brain?
