This was the month and week when a coach which carried 50 people in the UK was bombed killing children and off duty soldiers. The bomb went off on m62 in Catterwick, and was en-route to Manchester. Twelve people were killed, and the IRA were the prime suspects.
Luckily the music of the time was much more uplifting, and the BBC top twenty continues in the 1970s.
Living For The City by Stevie Wonder
From the album Innervisions this Tamala Motown hit from Stevie was a true classic. The song tells a story of a boy growing up im Mississippi with lack of money and having to deal with the racism of the time. The song then switches to a young man now arriving in New York and getting mixed up in drugs. The last verse you can hear the anger in Stevie’s voice, this was needed to make the song work and was achieved by getting Stevie really angry in the studio. Next month Stevie would perform at Madison Square Gardens his first concert after a car crash the previous year that had put him into a coma.
