Throwback Tracks -- December 28, 2017

Throwback Tracks -- December 28, 2017

David R. Smith

Okay. I've only got about a half hour before I need to run away. The perils of trying to get one of these written every week, including during the holidays. So this is going to be a quick list to tide you over to next week where we start the new month and new year. Until then, here are 5 songs written and/or sung by artists who passed away this year. Kind of our memorial to those we lost this year. 

2017 was a hard year for me in this respect. I lost two of my top-3 singers; Gord Downie and Chris Cornell. Add Tom Petty and others on top of that, and it was a difficult time. I understand that this is a part of life and we have to accept this. I just can't believe two men whom I loved so much died. I'm just hoping Eddie Vedder can make it at least 3 more days (but hopefully much, much longer.)

RIP to all of these on the list. Thanks for the rock. 

The Guys From do not hold the rights to any of these songs, it is more our hope to expose our readers to new (*cough*) and different retro music, or re-expose them to things they may have forgotten about.

At the top of each section, will be the song name, followed by the artists' name linked to their website (if possible...which is totally hit and miss with oldies), so you can fall down the rabbit hole, finding and supporting what you dig.

The Last Of The Unplucked Gems - The Tragically Hip

For Those About To Rock (We Salute You) - AC/DC

Slaves and Bulldozers - Soundgarden

Breakdown - Tom Petty

That's it. No more for 2017. Hopefully a year from now, I won't have to add another list of 5 artists we've lost, but let's be realistic; it seems to be the trend. Which is a bummer. But such is life.

But hey; we're all still here so let's enjoy it, right?

Happy New Year, readers!

Here are all the playlists.
