I wandered into the 70s aged 12 years and walked back out aged 22. In between I went from child to young man.
For me it was the decade of freedom from responsibility and commitments. Of teenage romance and carefree days. Of continual discovery and learning.
Every moment was accompanied by music just as every moment of today is. And, while I’ve lived through and enjoyed the evolution and extinction of so many musical styles and artists, it is the music of the seventies that plays loudest in my mind.
That music lives on. Each morning as I prepare for work I hear at least one song from those halcyon days. Some mornings it is a song I haven’t heard for many years and yet the lyrics come flooding back enabling me to sing along.
This blog is a tribute to those songs and the artists that produced them. Once a week I add a song that I’ve heard that day in the hope that it will bring back a flood of fond memories for you it does for me.
