I have no memory whatsoever of Sister Janet Mead. Ditto for The Rubettes. Or Prelude.

I know I listened to a lot of country in the early- to mid-70s, but still... .

I only know three. Quite possibly I slept through most of 1974.

So I--child of the 1970s, aka DiscoDollyDeb--claim the crown on this one. I know every single one of those songs, and some are pretty good, like Beach Baby, Life Is A Rock, and After the Gold Rush (a spooky cover of a song that was rather spooky to begin with). But that nun's version of The Lord's Prayer was NEVER heavy metal!

Amazing how many of those (9) I do remember. Although I was still listening to a top 40 radio station in 1974. And "The Lord's Prayer" is not one of them, although I doubtless heard it at least once.
