Opening Lines to Songs 10/21/12 1972
Back again through the years....we set the way back machine to 1972, the year of Mark Spitz winning 7 golds in the Olympics, Nixon TROUNCING McGovern (R.I.P.), A's winning first of 3 straight World Series Titles....I give the opening lines to some of the top 100 songs from that year, you guess the artist and title.  All these songs were in the Top 100 from Billboard from that year.  The next poll will be a little more modern, with 1982 being the year.  Have fun!

Got 5 out of 5 too, so what did I win?  Hope you all had a great day a super weekend of football.  Hope you have a better day of football next weekend if yours sucked like my game sucked the big one!  Really. . . I thought the song game was fun for 1972, unfortunately it is my year, among several, that fit with my profile so well why wouldn't I get them all!!!!
