Southern California soft rock band Ambrosia had five singles that were hits, which were enough to emblazon them in the tapestry of 70s pop culture fabric forever. One of their best is "How Much I Feel," which was a single released from their Life Beyond L.A. album in the summer of '78 and this sultry tune definitely made it hotter.
Written by David Pack, the band's guitarist and vocalist, it went on to claim the numer three spot on the Billboard Hot 100. All of their hits were ballads that crossed a few music genres, including soft jazz and pop. "How Much I Feel" has such a high-level of angst that it drips with realness. As opposed to early 70s ballads, this relies more on electric acoustics instead of bare essentials. One certainly feels a blanket of emotion when listening to this 70s classic. Like most 70s songs, it reels you into the emotion of the song and resolves your emotions with strong, logical lyrics.
