Pop Culture In The Seventies
Flash Back To The Decade Of The Seventies
A typical day in the 1970s is cruising in your car listening to your loud music using a 8 track tape. It was cool to go to a park on a Sunday afternoon and just cruise around checking out the cars and of course the guys. I thought that I was so cool driving around with my red camoro, only to see one that looked exactly like mine, but cooler because it had tall big tires. lol The taller the better I suppose.
The time of the Baby Boomers, mood rings, bell bottoms and for me my short mini leather black skirt with my high heeled boots. But yea a lot of bell bottoms the wider the better lol.
Disco and soul music was my thing back in the 70's. Remember the bump? That was a dance back then. Going to dance clubs and after hour clubs. The worse thing I remember is the wet tee shirt contest nothing compared to today as I seen my children go to clubs the women have no clothes on now a days. Well maybe a little but not much.
I just loved the music. Funky groove was the name of the game in the 70's :) The Temptations, Steve Wonder, Isley Brothers, Ohio Players, Kool & The Gang, War, Donna Summer. Earth Wind & Fire, Jackson 5, The O'Jays, Bee Gees and the list goes on and on. Some of the best music was in the 70's
Guys would have long hair, I loved the pony tail with one ear pierced that was so hot back then and still is as far as I am concerned :) Those guys were called studs hehehe. Then there was the afro the bigger the better just as long as it wasn't on me that was ok with me. Oh can't forget their high platform shoes lol.
There were a lot of pot smoking as I can recall in the 70's at least with the crowd that I would hang out with. Now that doesn't mean that I smoked it. Well maybe on occasion but not often :). We would go play pool and foosball after school and sometimes hitch a ride and go to the park. Far Out! Groovy!

This is me in the 80's - but still dressing like the 70's
Wearing my jeans and hairstyle like a hipi. I liked wearing hairbands that went around my forehead instead of on top of the hair it was cool. The time of the 70's seemed to be an environment where the people were more friendly.
The movies were of good taste not like today where there is a lot of cussing and the child is telling the parent what to do.
I go to see a funny movie and I am disappointed because it is nothing but sex involved and it is actually stupid. There are few that are really funny and good.
The songs actually had meaning, but now you can't even understand half of the things they are singing or yelling about now. There are a few exceptions, no bad intent.
You could get a hugh candy bar for a nickel and now the same candy bar is over a dollar. The gas was cheap the cost of living is way up from the 70's. There seems to be more people under stress with more worries that can't cope with the challenges of this decade.
School isn't even safe to attend anymore, going shopping isn't safe in fact just going to see a movie or out to eat it isn't safe. The 70's is a time that I miss, it was so different then it is today. The memories are so much better all around.
Todays technology has the teens and children of today losing touch with reality it isn't the same like it was in the 70's where the children played out all night in the neighbor hood and the parents looked out for each-other's kids and each other. Now you can't even trust a neighbor. It is so sad especially for our children and those who have grandchildren of this decade and the decade to come.
I miss the 70's the music, television, prices, people in general, fashion, the 70's are the best memories that I have.
