Song 1980-38: Blackfoot, “Train, Train”

Question: What happens when you combine country, southern rock, heavy metal and a harmonica?

Answer: “Train, Train” by Blackfoot, a song that peaked at #38 in 1980.

On “Train, Train,” Blackfoot sounds like Merle Haggard, .38 Special, Ozzy Osbourne and Metallica all in one. The band placed two songs in the HOP 100 in the ’80s.

Memorable lyric: “Goodbye, pretty mama. Lord, get yourself a money man. You take that midnight train to Memphis.”
