Boston – Music & City


Friday 17 April, 2015 by Uncle Spike

Boston is a city close to my heart for a number of reasons; but here’s just three:

1 – I spent a few weeks lurking there way back when

2 – Kissing on my 22nd birthday, also way back when

3 – Love the band too…

This is an iconic tune from Boston (the band) that many will recognise I’m sure. Yes, I’ve returned once again to my favourite musical era of the mid 70s, but happy to admit that some 39 years later, I’m still playing it in the car, albeit with a seven year old singing along beside me!




These Friday afternoon musical look-back posts are part of my run called Tunes I Love. Basically it’s all part of my trip down memory lane, and another way of sharing snippets from the life and times of me, Uncle Spike 🙂

    The mid 60’s to mid 70’s is my favourite era for “Western pop and rock”, as well as for Bollywood music. Having said that, I never did hear much of Boston’s music. A bit of Chicago’s music, but not Boston’s

    I couldn’t hear as it wasn’t available in my country…so I header over to another spot and gave myself a listen.

    Could not “play” as the “Uploader has not made it available in “your” country. But went to i-tunes and listened. Very familiar with this upbeat song, as I once used is as a great background for a slide show of the beginning of a vacation to Alaska (Pictures from Newark Airport – to Anchorage from the plane – a very upbeat and memorable time) The music fit in well, although Mary Anne is not any one we know!
