70's Pop Music

Updated on October 25, 2014

I hate to admit this to anyone but I am still a fan of 70's pop music. Now don't rush out and tell all my friends they still think I am 70's and 80's rock guy with a little of the 90's and beyond thrown in for good measure. Still there is something about 70's pop which appeals to me

My First Crush

My first crush in the 70's was Olivia Newton John. She sang some beautiful songs like, “Have You Ever Been Mellow,” and “Please Mister Please,” to name just two of my favorites. I had ONJ posters on my walls. I had her albums and cassettes which I played in my car, when no one else was around. I was an ONJ fan up until she did the movie Grease and changed her appearance and musical style to fit into the new disco fad.

Whatever Happened to ABBA

One of my favorite pop groups of the 70's was ABBA. Yes I was and still am a closet ABBA fan. I had all of their albums, with my favorite being Arrival. All of their tunes were so catchy and were hard not to like and sing along with. Of course I never told my heavy metal and rock brethren back then because they might have disowned me but ABBA still remains a favorite of mine up to this day.

ABBA of course

Other 70's bands

A couple of my POP favorites of the 70's and 80's decade were Air Supply and Atlanta Rhythm Section. I know what you're thinking but Air Supply and ARS are not rock groups, they are to me two POP groups. Air Supply was know for their soft melodic love songs which drew hearts together. ARS was known for songs like “So Into You,” which is s soft POP song as possible. ARS did have songs which were a little more rocking but they are still a pop group to me.

My affection for 70's POP kind of wore off after I started listening to groups like Boston and Aerosmith but I still hold a place in my collection for groups like Fleetwood Mac, WAR, The Bellamy Brothers and more.

      I forgot about Grease and Barry Manilow, He writes the songs the whole world sings.

      Bring back the 70s and bell bottoms (well, they're sort of back)! ABBA, Air Supply, Barry Manilow... never going out of style. Still have the original vinyl version of Grease? :)
