I was gonna say Mother Freedom!

I remember DJ-ing at an A.C. station and I was always wanting to play songs that had some form of UMMPH to them.
Believe it or not with the junk we played Ride Like the Wind (Christopher Cross) was decent.
Sister Golden Hair (America) worked too because of the guitar.

After midnight on Fridays and Saturdays (the program director was usually drunk by that time) I played rockers from records I brought in.
A BIG NO-NO!
But he was too s-faced to care!
And the owner lived too far away to get our signal.

Hardest in what way?

I thought the Association's "Along Comes Mary" was quite a change from stuff like "Windy" or "Never My Love".....oh yeah, and "Cherish".

Actually, since "Along Comes Mary" was their first national hit, "Windy, "Never..." and "Cherish", were the change.

@Timothy:

Yeah, I guess I did word that sloppily. I WAS there when ACM came out. I thought the group had promise. For me, based on what they did afterwards, I was wrong.

jpl: What do you mean by hardest - heaviest, most difficult to play?

Posted on Dec 11, 2012 7:08:28 PM PST
All I Want to Do - The Beach Boys (on the 20/20 album)

Stab in the dark: Good Vibrations . . . because of the song structure.

The first Joel song I ever heard that included distorted Les Paul power chords.

Lots of different definitions of soft rock in this thread. I haven't heard the term used since the 80's.

Posted on Dec 12, 2012 12:31:33 PM PST
"The Shape I'm In" and "Kamikaze" by Ambrosia. Both songs are from their album "One Eighty".

Great choice! The Hollies actually did a number of harder edged songs in the 70's. Check out "48 Hour Parole" and "Russian Roulette" from their 1976 release, "Russian Roulette".

if any casual fan only knew Chicago from their soft rock ballads of the mid 70's onward they'd be shocked to hear some of the heavy tracks laid down throughout the Terry Kath era such as South California Purples, Free, I Don't Want Your Money,State Of The Union,Hideaway
