I like music of the 1970s. The 70s were my influential years; the years I entered my teens, graduated high school, fell in love for the first time and became married. I believe some of the best music came out of the 70s. Who remembers ‘Hotel California’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, ‘American Pie’, ‘Lean On Me’, ‘Bennie And The Jets’ and ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’? There are so many classic songs that debuted in this decade, and we cannot forget Disco music; ‘Staying Alive’, ‘Night Fever’ and ‘Le Freak’. These songs never get tiring and will always be nearby for our enjoyment.
This music brings back so many wonderful memories for me. 70s music is all I listen to when I am exercising at the gym. I can be walking on the treadmill, hear a particular song and it transports me back to a time and place where life seemed simple. I know this world had conflicts back them, but to me my little world did not seem too bad. Yes, I had some problems; just getting good enough grades to graduate high school was a struggle for me. Psychological symptoms started to manifest and would be more pronounced and harmful in the 1980s.
But when I listen to the music of the 70s, it takes me back to good times, before my life became complicated and difficult. I by no means want to go back to the 1970s, but I sure do like the music. There are only a few current songs that I care to listen to in today’s world. Call me old fashioned, but today’s music is just not the same – not as good as the music of the 1970s.
