Remember that thing for about two or three years where either you were a disco fan or a rock fan? One of the two. Then disco disappeared and no one admitted to ever having listened to it.

Nowadays the kids divide themselves up in several categories: rock, disco, hip-hop, emotionals (or whatever they call themselves), Goths, and wear the proper uniforms to show their allegiance in public.

But the absolutely strangest thing I've noticed is how GOOD the disco from the 70s is. I was chaperoning several years ago, and when YMCA came on the crowd went NUTS. It was heads and shoulders above all the other music that had been played that evening, and everyone there knew it.

Still, when Saturday Night Fever came out I absolutely LOATHED the music.
Stone- you're in Germany. Of course they like Disco. They also like David Hasselhoff Smile I'd argue that disco was so bad, it took American music a whole decade to recover.
The 70's was great, as it was a decade where we saw the birth and development of Hard Rock and Heavy Metal- Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Queen, Boston, Blue Oyster Cult, The Sex Pistols, The Ramones- I could go on and on... (Then the 80's hit, along with the hair bands and the ubiquitous 1-minimium Hard-Rock-Ballad-per-album, and it wasn't until the 90's when grunge appeared and brought metal's real image back...)

Two words. Iron Maiden.

Now we ARE talking about my favorites.

And let's not forget the underrated Rainbow!

For me it is the sound of Philly… The Stylistics, Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes, The Delfonics, etc. I lived across the river in Cherry Hill, NJ and then my family moved to Utah... Need I say more?

Let me guess, Utah is not a fun place. Do you ever get the cravings for a Pat"s cheese steak, or a real hoagie, or a professional baseball, hockey, football, or basketball game? I would guess that the Osmonds are not as good as Teddy Prentergrast was. Do you remember drinking a beer at the ball park? Do you remember going to the beach for the day? The last time I was in Utah all I could think about was WHEN THE **** AM I GOING HOME

Jazz = 43-24
76ers = 23-44

If you ever get the cravings for a professional basketball game, leave Philadelphia and go to Utah!

I saw the MC5 and they were the worst rock and roll band that there ever was. My ears were ringing for several days after I walked out of their concert, and all the political BS between songs. It has been over 40 years since I saw them, and I remember that nightmare like it was yesterday.

Lobo
Whoops you are right about the Utah jazz, so Salt Lake City is a one sport town, can you drink a beer at their games? I still wouldn't go there on a bet.

Thank you Mr. Politically correct

AL… When I moved to Utah at the end of the 70’s, there was a sign at the state line that said… Welcome to Utah, set your watch back 20 years.

Since then many things have changed… you can get a real drink there and there are some OK cheese steak places. I am now living in Denver CO, what a change, but still not much in the way off good Soul Music, but we have become Nugget fans.

Oh the Osmonds had a little soul with “One Bad Apple” … they did an OK imitation of the Jackson 5.

This is an example of bad 70's music.


I lived in Bristol RI for a short while in the 70s. There was a bar across the street. They played that, constantly.

Oddly enough, I kinda like the song. Just not at 11:30 at night when I'm trying to sleep!

1970s music is epitomized by the Brady Bunch kids singing "Sunshine Day."
