This was a very tough call between this song and my number one song. Sort of my theme song, Couldn’t Get It Right by the Climax Blues Band. Don’t know why, but this songs always stuck with me. 1976, I was a young man back then (and a budding young lady as well!). I had a morning paper route and every Sunday would listen to the late Casey Kasem’s countdown after my deliveries (still do, reruns of course). When this song hit the charts, it grabbed me and I rooted it well into the Top 10 (okay, so I had no life….).
A few years later they also scored with I Love You, a beautiful ballad. A few years back I found a greatest hits CD for Climax Blues Band and really love everything on it! Some real bluesy stuff as well as some quality pop. This song, in my humble opinion, is the best song prominently using cowbell.
