Fire and Rain
This song in September of 1970 marked the first appearance of James Taylor on Billboards charts. He would later be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame (2000). It is the centerpiece of our theme today - Fire and Rain.
I Love A Rainy Night
In November of 1980, Eddie Rabbit topped the charts with this big hit! He picked up a gold record too! He got his break when Elvis Presley recorded one of his songs, "Kentucky Rain" in 1970. The rest is history!
Light My Fire
Talk about career starters! This song by the Doors would begin a lengthy run of hits and gold records. It was their first chart hit and spent 3 weeks at number one, and also earned them their first gold record. It's a hit today on Theme Thursday!
From the one-hit-wonder department comes Arthur Brown. In September of 1968 he had a #2 hit and also grabbed a gold record with this one. It is easily recognizable form the opening shout, "I am the God of Hell Fire".
