10 Great Country songs from the 1970s (videos & spotify playlist)

The 1970s brought us many great country songs, here are 10 I´m listening to today.

Kris Kristofferson – Help me make it through the Night (1970)

Take the ribbon from your hair
Shake it loose and let it fall
Layin’ soft upon my skin
Like the shadows on the wall

Chuck Berry: 11 often overlooked but great songs – Rest in peace

The legend, guitarist Chuck Berry, who merged blues, country, gospel, jazz and swing into the phenomenon of rock’n’roll, died on Saturday aged 90, according to Missouri police. We’re not putting together a greatest song list (maybe later…) but we will try to honour the master by finding 11 songs that are too often overlooked.

What is a “buried treasure”, “a hidden gem” or “an underrated gem” ? Well, to me, it’s a great song that seldom (or never) is on the “best-of” lists of the artist, and it could have/should have been.

I am talking about great songs that are often overlooked. We are talking about personal favourites that you wouldn’t rate among the artists top 20 (maybe), but deserve some more praise and recognition than they get.

Rest in peace great artist!

Great Spotify Playlist by Gorm Gullo

When my favorite Norwegian music magazine – BEAT – died for the 5th time back in 1997, the journalists were asked to create a playlist (or rather a C60 tape back then) containing the best music ever.. in their opinion. The time limit was 60min (C60 tape).

Some of the lists are really great and I will share them in a series of posts.
