ademas,

Sad to say, I'm still on dial-up, and can't watch these things. But, to answer your question about 'did we do the 70's', OH YES, and I did them WELL.

Now that I've dated myself, I just today got an alert about my 35th freakin' High School Reunion for next year. GEEZ.

Part of me just sagged some more. Boo Hoo.

Bye for now,

Zephie

I did the 70's very well also, Zephie.....what a decade.  $5 would fill my tank to the brim, when it was on "E".   I love disco music, and still listen to it frequently.

BTW, I love the song Eres Tu....


Here's something from MY 70's:

LOL @ Eric

I have a friend who always 'mis-hears' the words to songs....he thought Donna Summer's "Spring Affair" was saying "Swing your Thing".......

He thought "Mama don't take my Kodachrome" was "Mama don't take my corn pone"......

He thought "Happiest Girl in the Whole USA" was saying "Happiest Girl in the Whole Human Race"........

Another Eurovision song, from 1976, "Save All Your Kises For Me." I loved this song as a little kid, wore the tape out.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B1jQDG02RnA
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

Thank you Ademas! I really like that song. In 1973 Spain was still a dictatorship under General Francisco Franco. Many things have changed for better but others for worse...
Watch this video of Baccara. They were two Spanish women discovered by a German producer during his vacations in the Canary Islands. The were singing at his hotel. If you are able to understand what they say you deserve a prize! They sing in English without knowing what are they saying...

My '70's memories:

Buying David Bowie 8-tracks @ K-Mart. Still have my "Heroes" 8 track tape.

That horrible movie Sgt. Pepper with the Bee Gee's and Peter Frampton it was so bad I walked out in the first 5 minutes.

The first song I danced to in a gay bar was "Dirty Back Road" by the B-52's on Jan. 11, 1979 @ George's in Memphis. I was 16 yrs old.

Remember the band KISS? I used to love lookin' at those hairy chest & cod pieces. Now I know why...

Listening to Talking Heads, The Clash, Sex Pistols, The Ramones... Reading Trouser Press Magazine. Discovering weed, & loosing my virginity in the backseat of  my father's Buick Electra 225 with Tina S.

One of the first disco hits was Gloria Gaynor's "Never Can Say Goodbye", which was topping the charts back in 1974.

Other favorite include Yvonne Elliman's "If I Can't Have You" and the following songs from the Bee Gees:

*Stayin' Alive
*Night Fever
*More Than a Woman
*You Should Be Dancing

and let's not forget Donna Summer  (aka LaDonna Andrea Gaines) :)

Hi Jordan,

I love that pic of LaDonna !  Ahhh, the memories all this 70's talk stirs up....

I went to see the Village People in 1977 (I still have the ticket stubs!) and Gloria Gaynor was the opening act.....I just LOVED "Never Can Say Goodbye"...after the concert, of course we all went to the gay bar (Birmingham, AL) and in strolls the Village People about 1:30 a.m.!    I danced with the leather man, I'll never forget it....

A bunch of us got together recently and watched "You Can't Stop the Music", it is a really fun look at that era.   My favorite song from that is "The Milk Shake" number....

OK I'm back to reality, and I'm almost FIFTY years old !!!  YIKES where did the years go?

In Rolling Stone, there was an article about Atlanta Rhythm Section's song Imaginary Lover.  If it was played at 45 speed, it sounded just like Stevie Nicks.  She said it was the type of song she would do, the way she would have done it.  She mixed it in with some demos and played it for Christine McVie and got compliments.  Have the best day

I was a child in the 70s so for me the big deals were Star Wars, Wonderful World of Disney, Saturday morning cartoons, etc. By the time I came out in 1985 AIDS was in full swing, so I look back at the 70s as the golden age of wild sex without the paranoia. Born too late...

I remember a few things about the 70's but I was only a Princess then since I was born in 69. The music of the 70's was good, liked it quite a bit. What I hated was afro puffs and bell bottoms....

I have somewhat mixed feelings about the 70's.

We were a very daggy (uncool) working class family. I remember going on holidays in our Valiant station wagon (about the daggiest car an Australian family could drive at the time. They were referred in a derogatory fashion as 'wog chariots', but dad swore by the Hemi 245 engine). I remember my sisters in boog tubes, and me in Coca Cola pants, zinc cream on our noses, the Bay City Rollers (a Scottish pop band).

On a positive side, it was the only time in my youth that my football team ever had any chance of success, but like a typical down and out working class team they always stumbled at the final hurdle, never quite reaching the ultimate heights.

I remember the day Grace Jones came into the restaurant where I worked and stole
our sous chef (a hunky black guy with a great personality)...and then the time she
showed up at Backstreet Atlanta and danced the night away....

The woman was incredibly dynamic!

I thought Credence Clearwater was singing, "There's a bathroom on the right." 

How funny!  That's exactly what I heard, too.  I thought "I Love the Nightlife" by Alicia Bridges was "I Love a Night Light".  On a related note, www.amiright.com has tons of mis-heard lyrics.

ademas: Love that avatar! It cracks me up everytime I see it.

70's : 1970 was Woodstock, NY. A time of living in a communal living, of pot, hash, mushrooms, peyote, LSD, mescaline--let's see, have I missed something? Nope.
It was in the mid 70's when I became comfortable within myself as a gay man. Therefore, sweet memories the rest of the decade and into the early 80's.
