May Retro Country Rewind (Part 1) #MewsicMovesMe

It's been a couple years since we premiered our mewsic feature "Retro Country Rewind," a look back at favorite songs that hit #1 during that month from 30, 35, 40 plus years ago. This year we're delving into #1 hits from 1971, 1976, 1981, and so on. Let's take a look at part 1 of our May selections (since we found too many great songs for just one post) for this freebie week in the Mewsic Moves Me blog hop...


50 Years Ago - 1971, How Much More Can She Stand, Conway Twitty

One of my top 10, maybe even top 5, favorite Conway songs. 
Read more about its history in my Crazy In Love With Conway blog post HERE!


50 Years Ago - 1971, I Won't Mention It Again, Ray Price


45 Years Ago - 1976, After All the Good Is Gone, Conway Twitty


40 Years Ago - 1981, I Loved 'Em Every One, T.G. Sheppard


40 Years Ago - 1981, Seven Year Ache, Rosanne Cash


We hope you enjoyed our picks this week!

How could some of these be 40+ years old?

When you said 1971 was fifty years ago, I said "that can't be right." Then I subtracted 50 from 2021 and... yep, 1971. I'm old (I was a sophomore in high school). Good set!

M&M,

TG Sheppard is a name from the past. He really had a good voice. I love "I Loved Them Everyone". Great song pick! I wasn't a fan of Rosanne Cash in the days but she had the a good voice. The revelation of many artist from yesterday regardless of genre I've come to appreciate talents, even like their songs. The so-called singers today all sound the same. I get so tired of hearing 'you have a unique identifiable voice' which couldn't be further from the truth. Thanks for sharing these #1 hit songs with the 4M dance party, furriends!

I have to admit, I love the T.G. Sheppard song. I think he was one of those under appreciated artists in his day. This was a great tune you shared with us today. Thanks for the stroll down country lane.

It's interesting how country music has changed through the years. I enjoyed Rosanne Cash the most. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

One of the difficult tasks that almost every essay writers student of the university has to complete is writing an essay. Such a task provides for the presentation of one's own opinion on a specific issue, however, the scientific part of the work should be fully preserved.
