This Months Featured Song!
Pilot - January
“January” is a pop rock song recorded by Scottish rock band Pilot. Written by David Paton and produced by Alan Parsons, “January” was the sole number-one single in the UK for Pilot, coincidentally going to the top of the charts on 26 January 1975. It stayed at number one for three weeks.
In a video interview on Radio Borders, David Paton explained that the song was not about the month, but about a girl named January, the name being taken from a female protagonist in a book that his wife was reading at the time.
The verse is unrelated to the chorus and talks about the success of “Magic” and how it had opened up the world for him. It also charted in the United States, making a minor impression on the Billboard Hot 100, in early 1976. It also went to number one in Australia, where it stayed for eight weeks. During the month of January 2016, the song was a feature of adverts for ASDA stores within the UK.

It's all about the Seventies Music!
The 1970s saw the emergence of hard rock as one of the most prominent subgenres of rock music. During the first half of the decade, British acts such as Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Uriah Heep, Black Sabbath were at the height of their international fame, particularly in the United States. By the second half of the decade, many other acts had also achieved stardom, namely, Mountain, Grand Funk Railroad, Alice Cooper, Cactus, James Gang, AC/DC, Blue Öyster Cult, Kiss, Aerosmith, Van Halen and Ted Nugent. We play them all here on 70 Vibe FM.
(All means we play all the genre of this era. Pop, Rock, Country, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Psychedelic, Hip hop and many more!)
The music scene in the ’70s was like the United Kingdome in the ’70s – we had a lot of unemployment, we had inflation, we had lot of strikes going on, on a national scale, and a lot of discontent. That was reflected in the music.

The 70's Music Scene
In North America, Europe the decade saw the rise of disco, which became one of the biggest genres of the decade, especially in the mid-to-late 1970s. In Europe, a variant known as Euro disco rose in popularity towards the end of the 1970s. Aside from disco, funk, smooth jazz, jazz fusion, and soul remained popular throughout the decade. It is this influx of popular music that soon transformed into Rock ‘n’ Roll during the Early 1970s.
Rock music played an important part in the Western musical scene, with punk rock thriving throughout the mid to late 1970s. Other subgenres of rock, particularly glam rock, hard rock, progressive, art rock and heavy metal achieved various amounts of success. Other genres such as reggae were innovative throughout the decade and grew a significant following.
A subgenre of classical, film scores, remained popular with movie-goers. Alongside the popularity of experimental music, the decade was notable for its contributions to electronic music, which rose in popularity with the continued development of synthesizers and harmonizers; more composers embraced this particular genre, gaining the notice of listeners who were looking for something new and different. Its rising popularity, mixed with the popular music of the period, led to the creation of synthpop. Pop also had a popularity role in the 1970s.
All that stuff about heavy metal and hard rock, I don’t subscribe to any of that. It’s all just music. I mean, the heavy metal from the Seventies sounds nothing like the stuff from the Eighties, and that sounds nothing like the stuff from the Nineties. Who’s to say what is and isn’t a certain type of music?— Ozzy Osbourne
