Music Nostalgia

I have been noticing old songs from my younger years are appearing in more and more venues and I must say, it does warm my heart.

On "So You Think You Can Dance" this was one of the songs a dancer used as music an audition .

It was a good fit for a lyrical number.    "I'd Rather Go Blind"   was from the year I graduated from high school.  I don't remember it from that time.  It made it to number 14 on the U.K. charts when it was sang by a little known group called Chicken Shack featuring Christine Perfect who became Christine McVie in Fleetwood Mac. but I couldn't find where it did much here in the states.  I don't know why.  It's a good song.

My favorite (maybe second favorite after Sir Paul) British rocker recorded it in 1973 and I have read that Miss Etta liked his version.  I'll let you decide.  I like both of them for different reasons.  I have the original by Etta on my MP3 player but being a Rod fan, I have to say that rocker boy wore it well.
