Goooooooooooood Morning Campers!

It’s another B E A utiful day!

1970 – 1979 Week!

This week, we are going to be having fun in the 70’s.

In truth not my most favourable time period, l remember them quite well. The early to mid 70’s l lived in Australia, whilst the later to end 70’s and the arrival of the 80’s l was living back in the UK!

The 70’s however has it’s followers as well as its critiques like most eras, l mean we had ‘shag carpeting’, but we also had the start to the sexual revolution, we had flares and seriously bad patterned shirts and the awful polyester and we had DISCO!!

Yeah!!

I am not a huge fan of the music from the 70’s, BUT l cannot deny the use is served, if not for certain 70’s genre, ‘certain 80’s genres’ would not have existied, so l have to be thankful!

As bad as the 70’s were they were still great, like most of life in truth!

  1. Very well done!! Three fabulous songs from three fantastic artists and one of the best movies of all time!!
    I only have one memory of 1971… changing my new baby brother’s diaper. I was three years old and very proud that I hadn’t jabbed him with the pins. (All cloth diapers back then) Rather than praise for helping, I remember my mother being very upset with me (worried about the pins).
    Well, off to bed… I’m very happy to go to sleep AND wake up later with these awesome songs!!

    1. I was 8 in 1971, and in truth just arrived back into Australia after 2 years in Malaysia. So my memories are pretty slim. But l DO remember the giant pins with cloth nappies as my Sister was only around 3 and wearing them, and l remember the buckets of nappies where they had to be washed.

      I remember more, but no specific music of the time, because my Dad didn’t listen to the music of the 70’s, but tended to listen to the likes of Sinatra, Don McLean and of course Neil Diamond, who l also did happen to like.

      Sleep well Grandma 🙂
