What was that song?

In 1974, I badly wanted, and could not find in my hometown of Wausau, Wisconsin, a somewhat obscure album from a Detroit band getting some regional airplay.

Likewise, my pal who went to college in another town could not find a Babe Ruth album he wanted. So we looked for, and eventually found, each other’s albums.

The album I wanted? “Seven,” the seventh album from a still-young Bob Seger.

The song I had to have? “Get Out of Denver.”

The next year, in 1975, I had one of those “What was that?” moments while listening to the FM radio of the day.

The song I had to have? Seger, again. It’s from this week’s side over at The Midnight Tracker.


“Katmandu,” Bob Seger, from “Beautiful Loser,” 1975.

  1. Two great Bob Seger tunes. If you don’t have ‘Live’ Bullet, it’s a must-get for Christmas. In college, I loved to play Travelin’ Man/Beautiful Loser together. 8:53 of the best stuff ever from Seger.

  2. Turn The Page is still one song that gives me goosebumps when I hear it.

  3. Shark

    I saw Seger in concert just once…in 1978. Although I already had “Live Bullet” and “Night Moves” in my album collection, I wasn’t hooked on Bob Seger just yet. After seeing him in concert that April night in Madison, Wisconsin, I became hooked. Soon after, I got myself a copy of “Stranger in Town,” which contains one of my all-time favorite songs, “Hollywood Nights.”
