leejohnson's current selection is:
48 Crash
by Suzi Quatro
So much easier today to take all the song's info from Wikipedia (the one decent blog treatment I found had some shocking language in it, so "pass" on that). Even "Songfacts" was almost blank:

_____________________________________________________

"48 Crash" is Suzi Quatro's third solo single and was released after "Can the Can". It was included on her debut album "Suzi Quatro" (known as "Can the Can" in Australia). It later appeared on her 1995 album "What Goes Around" as an album track. The single peaked at No. 3 in the UK in July 1973, and No. 1 in Australia for one week. It also hit No. 2 in Germany, and charted well in other European countries. This third solo single was released after she moved from the United States to Britain. In the United States she had already released two singles with all-female band 'The Pleasure Seekers'. The song "48 Crash" was written and produced by Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn. The [B-side] song "Little Bitch Blue" was written by Quatro and Len Tuckey and produced by Mike Chapman and Nicky Chinn. The song has long been assumed to be about male menopause. However, according to the British writer D J Taylor, one alternative theory is that, having boasted of their ability to write "a song about anything", Chapman and Chinn were issued with the challenge to come up with a treatment of the 1848 United States economic crisis.

Really? Not for me to say, although I will admit that I never took much notice of meanings where 'Chinnichap' songs were concerned - I just enjoyed their inimitable songcraft and the energetic performances of all the artists who recorded their stuff, such as with today's gem. Chartwise, all that remains for me to say is that it did not feature at all as a single in the USA (Quatro's first chart hit there was a cover of Elvis Presley's "All Shook Up" in 1974!).

Rewind to the Seventies! Anything from 1969 to 1980 appears here.......
Born in 1954, leaving education by 1972, 'glam' was my thing, "Ziggy" Bowie my hero. I was even the only guy in my town with the haircut (though not the carrot red colouring!). Therefore every seventh selection is a Bowie track.
