Music Time – 2Fer/Double-Play

Remember in the early 80’s and radio station 98 Rock?  On Tuesdays, KPOI 97.5 or 98 Rock FM used to play 2-fer-Tuesday: 2 back to back songs from the same artist.



And now, KUMU 94.7 has Back-In-Da-Day-Double-Play: 2 back to back songs from the same artist.



So, I thought we’d play our version of MLC 2Fer/Double-Play.
– Think of a favorite artist and list your 2 favorite songs from that Artist (so much for the one-hit wonders).
– And just for this, I changed the settings to allow 2 links in one post – so your post won’t go into moderation – just in case you wanted to include YouTube links.


Here’s a couple of 2Fers to get us started:


James Gang:


Three Dog Night (THEN):


Three Dog Night (NOW):






Okay, you get the idea.  List your favorite 2 songs from your 2Fer/Double-Play artist.




And don’t forget – coming up next Saturday (4/21):

    Sorry; don’t know how to find links on youtube. Many know the first song but very few know the second. In the mid-60s, I heard a local group (The Phive Lads) play “Hurting Inside”; then I learned it’s from DC5’s “Come Home” album. If someone can find the links, I’d appreciate it.

    @sally – Speaking of Batdorf & Rodney, we met up with c0hiba and c0shiba a couple of weekends ago and caught the Gail Mack Duo at Terry’s Place. Gail performed this Batdorf & Rodney song that I thought nobody knew! She said it was a song that she lives by. During the break, I told Gail how much I love, love, love that song. It’s my all time favorite B&R song.
