Any other period and it just isn't as funky

 

They never turned this mutha out as much as before

I got one paragraph for you.

 

Italian Disco fever! Anything that hailed from Italy during the 70's was pretty damn rad, especially Vivien Vee. Heavy metal was seeing it's best years. The hippie counter-culture was dying. Synthesizer was just becoming a tool used in music, mostly pioneered by Pink Floyd. For me, I liked the simple New York folk that originated around during the time. When the riots (In New York) of '76 passed, a change could be heard in singers, calling for change. One in three high school students admit to smoking marijuana, as well as the LSD craze slowly dying. At the end of it all, disco was gone, change brought, and metal was slowly changing into a chic hair spray fumed business.

 

Anyway, here's some Vivien Vee, because she is awesome.

The 70s is a bit broad a subject, isn't it? So I'm just gonna go ahead and say that it was Neil Young's best period and that he is the best thing that has happened to the world ever.

Didn't Neil write 'Heart of Gold' in '74? That has to be the best f*cking song I have ever heard most of the time.

I've no idea when it was written, but it was quite a bit before the recording of Harvest ('72) considering he performs it on Live At Massey Hall 1971, though then it was segued with "A Man Need A Maid". "Heart of Gold" is a really beautiful song and what originally got me into NY in the first place.

Probably my favourite icon14.gif

Some of the most influential bands released their most influential albums in the 70's. To start it off Led Zeppelin killed off the 60's by releasing 3 albums in 12 months and kicking The Beatles' Abbey Road off the top spot in the charts.

 

Also one of the most influential artists to come to fame in the 70's were Kraftwerk. Producing albums like Trans Europe Express, Autobahn and The Man Machine they would influence a section of electronic music we know today giving the the title The Godfathers of Electronic music.

If anyone knows Planet Rock by Afrika Bambaataa they'll definately recognise the melody in this track.

Given I have been enjoying him as of late, I tend to agree. I was thinking someone here had a thread already solely in his honor. The man is a living legend. Again, a unique artist who's surprising the more you know about him

 

 

BUT, I've still no idea what the lyrics mean to this classic

 

 

Will say about Sugar Mountain, one of the best Young ballads, right up there, and this show looks like it's 1985's Live Aid

Somehow, this song from the Xanadu motion picture got in my head recently, but truth be told, this lady is one of the nicest in Show Business. Always grounded despite tragedy

 

 

 

For the guys, gotta love the Croce! hahaha

So much Bowie. The rest of the Berlin trilogy, plus a number of albums between Ziggy and Low, and also a pretty impressive outing in 1970 too with The Man Who Sold The World. Too many songs of Bowie to pick from, but here's one that's been playing in my head for the past while now:

Anyone who's been here any sizable amount of time should remember how much I used to like AC/DC, especially in the 70s with Bon Scott. tounge.gif

Yeah, I SEEM to remember that ^ Being on something of a Pink Floyd bender, This is the full 1970/71 broadcast an Hour with Floyd, back in the Pre Dark Side days, I believe they were asking if you'd like a copy on DISC??! haha

 

 

 

Good to see Tygers back to rockin, Live. I suspected they called it a day some time ago!

 

 

 

Gonna append even more on here...

 

 

Example: Songs with a religious slant on them can impart what's GOOD about Faith, and a Higher Power. People opposed to such things are not getting the picture they should, and I think denying what's good about religion is doing yourself a disservice. The best ones translate on the spiritual level music has and embodies ^

I was heavily influenced by The Moody Blues when I was younger.

 

I had to make sure I picked something from the 70s, and than I noticed that they had a lot of great hits in the 70s.

 

 

 

I used to f*cking love this song.

 

 

Edit:

I figured I would include this one since it was pretty popular

I was gonna look up something related to Convoys and Interstate Truckers, was on something of a kick about all that in my very young age, but the song dates to 1968! I was sooooo young then! haha

 

Here's WHO from 1979

However, it should be added Sister Disco is once referred by Townshend as their worst song... Well, I can't see it, not at all

 

 

 

The Above, let's all vote (online petition) for inclusion into GTA game ^^^^!!

 

Heck, this one too! \/

 

 

 

Lennon enjoyment, without McCartney! haha

I hope I won't be outta line bumping one topic myself, Girish? I never got on your case, man.... Just sayin' Let's not get hostile, co-exist is the plan, Stan!

Here's another from the Miller Vaults, I love this because it jokingly fits the saying that Steve Miller is the Poor man's Eagles... This sounds like an Eagles song, and it tells a musical story as well...

 

I will edit even more tunes for your Jukebox online

I prefer the 60s Rolling Stones but that doesn't mean they weren't great in the 70s

Well, I'm a black American, born in 1961. I grew up on all that good s*it you're talking about. Sadly, you're right - the music hasn't been the same since those days. That goes for R&B/Soul also. The songwriting/singing/musicianship isn't the quality it was during the late 60s, 70s, even the 80s.

 

I really miss the big bands from back in the day - Ohio Players, Brass Construction, Parliament/Funkadelic, Bar-Kays, Average White Band, BT Express, etc.
