HOUR 3    11 AT 11: "HARD"

More randomness for playlist generation, plucked from the dictionary, and with an additional filter applied. Details to come.  

So, what I did was to troll the Billboard charts from the 60s, 70s, and 80s to find out what the biggest hits were that had the word “hard” in them. Odd, I know, but…it was interesting. And some good songs, too!

Here they were, in reverse order, from #11 to #1:

Hard Rock Café—Carole King (#30, 1977)
Don’t Take it So Hard—Paul Revere & the Raiders (#27, 1968)
So Very Hard to Go—Tower of Power (#17, 1973)
Hard Luck Woman—Kiss (#15, 1976)
Try Too Hard—Dave Clark Five (#12, 1966)
Hard To Say—Dan Fogelberg (#7, 1981)
Easy to Be Hard—Three Dog Night (#4, 1969)
Hard Habit to Break—Chicago (#3, 1984)
Breaking Up is Hard to Do—Neil Sedaka (#1, 1962, 2 wks, 7 wks Top Ten)
A Hard Day’s Night—The Beatles (#1, 1964, 2 wks, 8 wks Top Ten)
Hard to Say I’m Sorry—Chicago (#1, 1982, 2 wks, 12 wks Top Ten)
