I wasn't acquainted with most of the songs you listed so I checked them out on youtube. What a year indeed.
I instantly fell in love with "Heart of Gold": "I've been to Hollywood, I've been to Redwood, I've crossed the ocean for a heart of gold...I've been in my mind, it's such a fine line, keeps me searching for a heart of gold...and I'm getting old." Traveling alone and sometimes being hit with feelings of longing, those lines hit me hard.
Thanks for these gems.
