    On this, my 38th birthday (birthday wishes to Roger Waters here), I thought it would be fun to revisit that great year of 1970 that brought us not only a whole bunch of great people :D but more importantly for the SotD Journal, so much great music!

    Credit where it's due: This list of my favorite songs of 1970 was originally sparked by a timely entry earlier this week from the same guy that posted up that idea of using album market statistics and awards to compute a list of Top 20 Albums (a favorite of Grant's!)

    Below is my own submission to his call for our own favorite songs of 1970, slightly edited and with some additional commentary.

    But I don't want to stop there¹! One day for 1970 isn't enough, so I thought it would be good to have a full week celebration of 1970: starting tomorrow and for each of the next 7 days, I will choose seven² of my Top 10 of 1970 as a SotD, and then cap it off with the first of what I have been talking about publishing for…
