I grew up in the 70’s. It was a wild time, with wild hair and wild clothes. Looking back on it now is a bit…horrifying. =) Oh, I still listen to the music, but you’ll never again get me into a pair of elephant legged bell-bottoms. Never.
100 Best Songs of the 70’s Even though this links says the 100 Greatest Rock Songs of the 1970’s, it’s really the top 250. From disco to hard rock, this is the place to see what songs you remember and why. Backseat of the Mustang? Staircase Disco slow dance? What’s your favorite 1970’s song and memory?
Oh the Monkees. When I was a raging-hormone-filled teen girl, these were the men of my dreams. Especially Davy Jones. Siiiiiigghhhhh. Davy’s now 65. Now how old does thatmake me feel?
The summer between sixth and seventh grades, I chopped my hair off. Probably one of the best moves I’ve ever made. Ponytails just weren’t my thing. Although I do remember wearing a sailor hat for two years, before I believe my mother threw the darn thing away…
I owned a pair of black and tan suede platform shoes, with Coca-Cola on the heels. I have a feeling they went the same way as the sailor hat. Moooo-ooooo-oooommmmmmm!!!!

My first date was to Jaws. Why????? Why was that a good idea? I remember the guy at the theater turning the movie OFF and demanding we settle down or he was kicking us all out. I screamed and screamed and….well, that was the end of that date.
