If any of you spend much time on Youtube, there are several younger folks who do a "first time hearing" playback and commentary...
Seems that most of them had never heard a singer of Ms Ronstadt's caliber..Most of the responses are just "wow, wow"...
But we knew, didn't we?

Donna went to the same High School as Linda Ronstadt in Tucson, few years apart.

I'm sure most of you know that The Bee Gees made some pretty good records in the 60's and early 70's LOL

Wiki calls this a protest song. To me, it could be heard as Pop, Rock ,Top 40, Crossover Country, even Folk Rock.
No matter..it was a big record in 1969, in an era of more electric and psychedelic hits.

"Games People Play" is a protest song whose lyrics speak against various forms of hatred, hypocrisy, inhumanity, intolerance, and irresponsibility, in both interpersonal and social interactions between people.[citation needed] Billboard favorably reviewed the song some three months after its release and eight weeks before it finally reached the Hot 100.[3]

The song was released on South's debut album Introspect and as a single, reaching No. 12 on the Hot 100.[4] It was also a No. 6 hit in the UK in 1969, No. 4 in Ireland, and won the Grammy Award for Best Contemporary Song and the Grammy Award for Song of the Year.[2]



In this song, South mentions a drag strip down by the riverside. Seeing Joe was born and raised in Atlanta, I believe he was singing about Yellow River drag strip, near Conyers, which has been a trailer park for many years...
