Today's 10@10 is an extended, maxi-length visit to a year that's a treasure trove of classic pop singles and soul gems -- 1970!!!! Yes, I confess, I've once again gone a wee bit past the 10 song structure, but I guarantee it's worth it. (And I think the set is still shorter than the prog-rock girth-fest --which I LOVED -- that we heard a couple weeks ago.) So with no further ado, I give you... 1970!!!

Part of the songwriting duo behind Fountains of Wayne and and the man who wrote the irresistibly catchy title song for "That Thing You Do" (among many other credits) passed away today in a hospital in New York, suffering from COVID-19.

I am bereft.
