70's Wuss-Rock Apocalypse

WFMU's Beware of he Blog has a great/terrible sampling of 70's MOR softrock hits:
This post concerns the most utterly mediocre music ever made, and the earth-shatteringly banal (and interchangeable) "bands" that made it - and yet I'm doing you a favor. Because I know you can't tell them apart, and it's been bugging you, as it's been bugging me, to match the SMOOTH HIGH-HARMONIED 1974-80 AM RADIO HIT to the ANONYMOUS WHITE, LIKELY MUSTACHIOED GUYS WITH THE LONG-FORGOTTEN NAME who made it.

Can you honestly tell the difference between Ambrosia and Pablo Cruise? Ace and Pilot? Have the words "whutchoo gonna do when she says goodbye? whutchoo gonna do when she is gone?" been permanently etched onto your ear, yet without the courtesy of an author to claim resposibility? I'm here for YOU. This is a PUBLIC SERVICE. Honestly, I'm sure this'll do you some good. (And I actually really like 2 of these songs! .... OK, one and a half.)

If you grew up in the seventies, these songs will likely ressurect long lost memories and traumas and may require hours and hours of Throbbing Gristle, Merzbow and Einst├╝rzende Neubauten to sand-blast these sound-bites out of the deepest crevices of your brain.
