Favorite Songs When Your Airstream was Built

The popular thread about the IPOD shuffle, got me thinking about my Sovereign and the songs that were coming out when it first hit the road back in 1972.

List five of your favorite songs that were either released or were big hits the year that YOUR Airstream was made.

Here are mine:

1. Go All The Way - The Raspberries
2. Witchy Woman - The Eagles
3. Nights in White Satin - The Moody Blues
4. Vincent - Don McLean
5. For Emily, Wherever I May Find Her - Simon and Garfunkel

1958 Overlander
2011 Wolf Creek 850N TC
2011 Ford F-250 Crewcab (6.2L), 3.73RE

WBCCI #5661/AIR #5661/TAC # AZ-6
4CU 1st VP

YouTube - Merle Haggard - Big City

Well, it's off by a year . . . but it's simply too good, even if the Hag is word-playin' us again. Got to be One of the Top 3 "I'm a'hitchin' up the trailer and gettin' gone" songs ever written (not to mention gear-climbing under a heavy load, gauging the footwork by an N14 Cummins turbocharger whine . . . back out onto The Road).

Big City

Merle Haggard

(Any other four would be well beside the point).

1990 35' Silver Streak Sterling; 9k GVWR.
2004 DODGE Cummins 305/555; 6-manual; 9k GVWR.
Hensley Arrow. 9-cpm solo, 15-cpm towing

One of my favorite Beatles tunes - Do You Want To Know A secret
And what about the infamous - Louie Louie - The Kingsmen
I liked their later stuff better - Do Wah Diddy Diddy - Manfred Mann
I will admit I liked this group. Hey I was only 9. Where did Our Love Go - The Supremes

Always liked this one - House Of The Rising Sun - Animals
And then there were a couple that I positively hated, you know, Deadmans Curve, The Last Kiss, Leader Of The Pack, things like that.
I cheated here, I confess. Geegle came in handy.
