|A look at the songs that have shaped|
my life and ended up on my devices.
I've learned this song had incredible staying power in the Billboard Hot 100, remaining on the chart for nearly six months before peaking at #12. It stayed in my head for considerably longer.
Something about the long stretch of Highway 69 in Kansas lent itself particularly well to soul ballads, although I'm not sure why. And it seems during the early 80's, quite a few of them hit the pop charts and would eventually make their way into my iPad and smartphone. Great road music never dies.
