Worst of the Hit or Miss – ‘Attitude Dancing’ by Carly Simon
Simon’s record sales declined considerably with 1975’s Playing Possum and 1976’s Another Passenger. Playing Possum was a Top Ten album, with a Top 40 single “Attitude Dancing” and two other charting singles, but Another Passenger produced only one single, “It Keeps You Running”, with the Doobie Brothers, as which barely scraped into the top 50. 1976 also saw Simon contributing backup vocals on the song “Peter” on Peter Ivers’s album Peter Ivers. She also made her only appearance on Saturday Night Live. It was a pre-taped performance—a rare occurrence on that show—because Simon suffered terrible bouts of stage fright.
