A fractured semi-fantasy of what pop radio sounded like during the waning days of the Nixon era... LISTEN.

  • Sylvia, "Pillow Talk"
  • Terry Jacks, "Seasons in the Sun"
  • Sly & the Family Stone, "If You Want Me to Stay"
  • John Denver, "Annie's Song" (note: No. 1 on Billboard the week Nixon resigned)
  • Steely Dan, "Rikki Don't Lose That Number"
  • King Harvest, "Dancing in the Moonlight"
  • Dobie Gray, "Drift Away"
