[Classic_Rock_Forever] Re: Song of the year 1977 finals rd. 1


Clint, you are correct. I resist voting for the song because it was a hit (and a memorable one) in 1979, but barely noticed in 1977. To me, it's not just about picking the best songs from the list, it's also about picking the songs that personify "1977" (give or take a month or two). If Stairway To Heaven or Free Bird showed up on the 1984 list, I wouldn't vote for that either. :)

There will be a 1984 list, won't there (eventually)? A lot of great songs from that year.
