Smack dab in the middle of the decade, 1975 was the polyester peak of the '70s, the year that captured all the glorious excesses of the Me Decade. Elton John presided over the pop charts -- his pull so powerful he could help give Neil Sedaka, that old pro who last topped the charts in the years before the Beatles, not one but two number ones -- and he ruled a year that saw Morris Albert sing about his feelings, a year where Captain & Tennille preached that "Love Will Keep Us Together," a year where Glen Campbell was a "Rhinestone Cowboy," and a year where everybody was "Kung Fu Fighting." It was such a gaudy, glitzy surface that it seemed like nothing might exist underneath, which is naturally the time that a lot of interesting things are happening.
