I just heard Boston's "More than a feeling" which is one of my all time top 10 songs. Whenever I hear it I'm right back in my first year student digs on the Hagley Road in Birmingham in the autumn of 1976. I like many of the time, was a big fan of the Alan Freeman Radio 1 show every Saturday afternoon. He always seemed to play something slightly different as well as new stuff from the US.
I remember thinking that the mid 70s was a pretty lousy time for me on the music front and I was blown away when I first heard Alan play this. I remember trawling the record shops of central Birmingham trying to buy a copy of the LP.
So, what song takes you right back and what were your circumstances?
Is it just me, but who else thinks on reading this article that people like this should simply take responsibility for their own actions. First year university student takes out unaffordable finance on an Audi. FFS what is the matter with some people.
