My Top 1000 Songs #590: Fox On The Run

Back in 1975, when I was 9 years old and just discovering the delights of Top 40 AM radio, Sweet's "Fox On The Run" was my first favorite song. I went out to the local Sears and used my allowance to buy Desolation Boulevard, the first record I ever bought with my own money.

Since then, I've had countless favorite songs--well, at least 1000, as we're working our way through right here. But "Fox On The Run" still holds up (the poppy single, not the original harder-rocking album track), a deliciously cheesy burst of sleazy bubblegum glam, the perfect song to turn a 9-year-old boy on to a lifelong obsession with music.

Anyway, here's a couple pages from Jittery White Guy Music
