That stuff & The Hollies

What a mixed bag. Many I don't even know - though I'm sure if I heard them I would - must be a Transatlantic thing or maybe cos I'm so much younger than you lot. Some I would cross the street to avoid ;Paper Lace, The Partridge Family,
KC & The Sunshine Band , Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods etc. Others knock most of the stuff that's talked about round here into a cocked hat if you're talking songwriting ; Carly Simon , Elton John , ELO , Hall & Oates , 10CC , Stealers Wheel , The Hollies , Todd Rundgren , Andrew Gold , Abba etc

Abba were on the other night on our VH1 in the UK and when you listen to their stuff you can't help but be amazed at it. Not so much the choruses which were mostly fantastic pop but some of the chord progressions and piano lines. Benny could easily have been a top pomp rocker if he'd turned his mind to it. That Hollies song too, anybody ever think that the turn at the end of the chorus is one of the most maudlin and evocative snippet of music as the vocals tails off and the guitar comes in, absolutely astonishing that there is so much emotion in a simple couple of seconds of music? or is it just me?
