Musical palate cleanser, glam battle edition

Friends, let me take you back to a simpler time, the early ’70s, when dudes could wear weird looking shoes, do, um… interesting things with hair and mix pop and hard rock together to come up with glam.  For a few years there, it was big, trust me.

Here are a couple of catchy numbers for you to wallow in.

Sweet’s “Fox on the Run” was a world wide hit, charting at #5 in the US.

Meanwhile, Slade scored a number one hit in Britain (only reached #98 in America, though) with “Cum On Feel The Noize”.

    And we can’t have a battle with a Roxy Music tune herein because it would be no contest for the other. (Unless it was TRex, then we’d have a battle.) Just sayin.’

    Sweet was one or those bands that you liked but you just wouldn’t admit it to anyone. My personal favorite was ” Love Is Like Oxygen. “

    Fox on the Run was on the local skating rink playlist rotation. I tended to skate faster when that tune came on. I also crashed harder.

    People laugh, but jamming an 8 track Sladest tape into a rigged-up player on the car floor, while driving about 60 mph down a curvy road, takes a special kind of talent.

    During the first few seconds of the Sweet video I thought Ann Wilson was the singer.

    I got the Quiet Riot cassette on my 13th birthday that had Cum On Feel the Noize. I’ve known it was a cover for decades but I’d never heard the original until today.

    Wow…. I had no idea that Cum On Feel The Noise was a cover. Thanks for sharing!

    • “Mama, Weer All Crazee Now” was also a cover of a Slade song. Weird to do 2 covers of the same band imo. I guess Van Halen did the same thing, but they did a lot of them and their Kinks covers were several albums apart
