This is a great year for music

My others would've been some of the songs off Zeppelin's ZoSo album, but apparently they didn't really chart, as they focused more on the album as a whole.

Zep IV was actually released in late '71, which I guess would explain how Stairway to Heaven didn't manage to crack the Top 100.

Some of the singles off that album, like Rock & Roll and Black Dog charted in '72 though, but apparently not well enough.

1972!!  I turned 8 -- My parents sent me to summer camp, every 'transistor radio' played Three Dog Night,America and Chicagoyes classics....My third grade music teacher always spun 'Saturday in the Park' and Ramblin' Man' ....Guess I'll never grow up!

When I worked at the radio station in college, if I hadn't picked out music before I got to the station, or when "nature called", I'd put on Roundabout, cause it is over 8 minutes long.  If I was REALLY stumped, I'd use Kraftwerk's Autobahn, at 22 minutes long
