I won't agree with you, but I was very young and still in my formative years in the 80's. I imagine listening to that music at that age must've affected me in quite a different way than it did you. But....bbbuuuutttt, there are some good songs on your lists.

I totally agree with you...the 70's had some awesome music and some fantastic singers and songwriters...I was a teenager during the early part of the 70's and I miss the music from that era...I bombard my kids with it on a regular basis. I try to show them what really great music is...and they like some of it...THE 70'S ROCKED!!!!

The '70's are ultimately the BEST for music. I also like the '40's too.....then the '60's and '50's were'nt to shabby either. That's as far as I go!!!!!!!!!!!!

How about patchouli oil, and herbs naturally grown. There is just way too much to mention. Shirt and purses with little mirrors on them. All we are saying is give Peace a chance. How about that? 70's rockkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk. So do 80's!

Mmmmm!

Anything by Bread, Russ Taff with or without The Imperials, Chris Craft, Oak Ridge Boys, Roger Miller ("The human mind is a wonderful thing, it starts working from before you're born and doesn't stop till you sit down to write a song"), Glen Campbell, James Taylor, Barry Manilow, The Carpenters....

70s music is my favorite era. That's when the radio music finally became complex in chord structure. And finally, Christian Contemporary music took off and had its own music stations. Heaven on earth!

Jan did you raid Barry Manilow wardrobe. Sometimes you are funny. I mean that in a nice way. It is just that we don't have the same taste in music. I like John Lennon and you like Barry Manilow.

My kids were in their teens back then, they brought me into the 70's music. There were some I never liked (Stevie Wonder's 'You Are the Sunshine of My Love' grated on me), and loved others that spilled over from the 60's (Marvin Gaye's 'Heard it on the Grapevine' -- he owned that song). Michael Jackson's 'Ben' was one of the purest songs I had ever heard. BUT we gotta include the Bee Gees and ABBA -- my daughter was hooked on the former, I on the latter. Name of the Game, Take a Chance, Chiquitita, SOS, Dancing Queen, Does Your Mother Know are just a few -- I'll always be a fan.

I can't agree with this one. The fashions were downright ugly. Those goofy looking suits were a joke. Almost as bad as the tie-dyed, psychedelic sixties. Cars had evolved into boring, lifeless hulks, gas embargoes created headaches for everybody. Bad movies were dumped on us. The beginning of the double nickel speed limit along with the price of gas made travel a bitch, cocaine was the new hip drug, we were stuck with two deadbeat presidents,,,one crooked one and a do-nothing moron, and we saw inflation go from 6% to 15%, The music was OK though.

Whenever there's a dress-up "Hippie" social occasion, I turn up in purple kaftan with embroidered butterfly on the front, complete with wide purple head-band.
Folks wonder at how I managed to find THAT.
What they don't know is that it has always been mine....I've had that since the 70s!
Once a Flower Child, always a Flower Child!

Pink Floyd will always be the essence of the 70s for me; much as I've loved Led Zepp and others, "Shine On, You Crazy Diamond" and "Wish You Were here" will always do it for me.........the list is endless!

I smile in delighted amusement that Gen X and Gen Y love the same kinda music.

Peace, brothers'n'sisters!

Actually Sandy, my bicycle years were the 40's, a terrible decade but my memories were mostly good because, like you, all that grown up crap didn't bother me. I turned 13 in 1950,,my favorite decade although it is much over rated today. We had the birth of rock & roll ( white boys R&B), bomb shelters, (a real shot of optimism), and cookie cutter housing, but I had my cool greasy ducktail with my pegged pants, blue suede shoes and acne explosions. Gas was around 25 cents a gallon so cruising also had it's birth. Jobs were their for teens and that was great because our all important cars required at least one hours maintenance for every eight hours of driving. My high school class of '56 was too young for Korea and too old for Viet-Nam. Our biggest drug at the time was 3.2 beer. I didn't even do a joint until the sixties. We all had bad diets ("Eat that fat Donny, it's good for you"), but we hadn't even seen the beginning of the cholesterol bomb of the fast food generation yet. Hey, all my best friends are still alive!
"Sh'Boom" is still my favorite song,,as bad as it is,

And gave us that great line that Spock quoted - so it must be important if it was important enough to be used on Vulcan.

And I can't let this thread pass without saying,

I LOVE DISCO. I've never understood people hating it or making fun of it or killing it. I loved it, I loved dancing to disco, I loved watching disco movies.

My Sharona? That has to be one of the worst songs in the history of music. Oh, wait. that wasn't music. The Knack didn't make music. They made cr*p with a beat. The same beat - every song.

IMHO, of course......

But .. Lodi ... didn't you have a basket adorned with cute flowers?

I never wore platforms but I thought Famolares looked cool ... until one day I stepped on a teeeensy rock and tore up my ankle and ended up on crutches for a week.

I loved the 70's, again the music. I couldn't have worn those clothes in any decade, I'm only 5'1" and the flare would have begun at my waist . I recently viewed a video of Michael Jackson, age 13, singing "Ben", and he looked great in that style, it wasn't exaggerated. So handsome, so talented, such stage presence ... so sad.

I loved the glitter rock of David Bowie, you know Ziggy Stardust. I worked in a Disco at College and every guy wore a tight shiny polyester shirt unbuttoned with gold necklaces, it was crazy.

I didn't have the basket. And thanks for bringing up that painful memory.

I eventually moved on to the ten speed. Red, white, and blue, because I bought it in 76.

We wore short running shorts with striped tube socks. I remember my 1st junior high Sweethearts Ball. I was crowned the 7th grade princess and I have a picture with crown, flowers, long dress, with striped tube socks and tennis shoes underneath. (I never did really fit into one particular mold).

8th grade was when I started wearing Hash jeans with the star on the back pocket and San Francisco Riding gear. Oh, and didn't we have A. Smile pants too?

The platform shoes were so short people could wear those flares

My wooden soled platforms were actually some of the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned, no nylons though, bare feet only. Cold in winter.

When I was in college in a little town in Southern Illinois. They blocked the streets off for Halloween and everyone was streaking. Not me (too shy) they were on motorcycles and on top of roofs it was crazy! It was a definite fad lasted about a year and then stopped. Maybe we should bring it back.

George & Harry were sitting on the porch of the retirement home, rocking away in their rocking chairs. Along comes Bessie, streaking across the grass, buck-nekkid. George turns to Harry and says "Was that Bessie that just ran by here?" Harry says "I believe it was." George says to Harry "What was that she was wearing?" Harry replies "Dunno but it sure needed ironed."


Let's not bring streaking back.
