40 Years Ago - Rock Me Gently Hits #1!

Postby Laura » September 28th, 2014, 12:55 pm

Hi everyone,

Can you believe it's been 40 years since "Rock Me Gently" reached the top of the charts? How time flies! It was September 28, 1974, when Andy Kim's enduring classic hit #1 on the Billboard Top 100. (Of course, back then it wasn't yet an "enduring classic" but a new record, which was getting lots and lots of well-deserved airplay!) Here's a blog post I just published as a tribute:

One of the great things about writing this blog was that I was able to listen to RMG several times while doing so!

Congratulations, Andy, for your success with this delightful tune, which has continued to withstand the test of time.

Thank you, Music Man, for giving us such a great song.
