For some inexplicable reason - clearly involving lack of taste - Jackie likes that horrible song.
Hard to believe such crap evolved (or devolved) out of such a great band as Jefferson Airplane. Although by this time only Grace Slick remained.
We saw Jefferson Airplane with a very pregnant Grace Slick (so it must have been late in 1970). Someone sent a stuffed animal for the baby on stage and she, gracious as ever, threw it back into the audience.In between sets was a Hot Tuna set.I miss the old days.
I didn't like the song when it came out, but it's FAR from the worst song ever. For one thing, Starship made an even worse one: "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now".
True.And let's not forget (though I wish we could) "Copacabana."
When I used to go to aerobics (yeah, there was a time) in the 1980s, this song was ALWAYS on the instructor's mix tape, no matter what other songs or styles were on it.
Anything by Styx has to be right up there.
I can think of a thousand worse songs. In fact, I like this one.
There is said to be an instrumental spot in the song, and Casey Casem once explained any station could therefore put their call sign or a promo right in the song, city after city, it was a different callout recording... if that was true it could explain why it became more popular.As Cap'n Bob says, there are plenty of other songs more over-played and more hated than this 'We Built This City', I think.
meant -> 'Casey Kasem'
