Last in Line Episode 4

Written by on March 31, 2022

This week’s Billboard chart was from November 2, 1974. The songs were very distinctly from the middle of the funk decade, with songs from infamous names like The Jackson 5, The Isley Brothers, and Blue Swede. Some favorites of mine were Clap for the Wolfman by The Guess Who and Sexy Ida (Part 1) by Ike & Tina Turner, but I highly suggest looking through the playlist to find some of your own favorites. Maybe you’ll enjoy the best title we’ve seen yet on the show, Don’t Eat The Yellow Snow by Frank Zappa.

Perhaps the one and only exciting thing to happen during the week of November 2, 1974 was “The Rumble in the Jungle.” Muhammad Ali faced George Foreman in the fight for the world heavyweight champion, which Foreman was defending and Ali was returning for after a seven year without the title. Ali knocked out Foreman in the eighth round, earning the latter his first loss. This was also the match that Ali first showed off his now-infamous “rope-a-dope” tactic.
