My 70s Music

Updated on July 16, 2014

Favorite 70s Music Pick List

I've always loved music, any kind of music.

However, I grew up in the 70s, I was a teen in the 70s.

We loved to sing and dance along with all sorts of great songs with interesting lyrics.

Walk along with me as I take you down memory lane with some of the best songs from the 70s.

Songs and music that teens in the 70s really loved to listen too.

I'd like to take this moment to thank kevinrosseel over at Morguefile for sharing his great big happy face with us!

Time waits for no one. However, the 70s were not so long ago.

Back then we were wearing Earth Shoes, which by the way are some of the most comfortable shoes you can ever find to wear anywhere in the world. I'm not sure if they still make them today or not, but believe me when you want comfort and lots of toe room, Earth Shoes cannot be beat. At least, the kinds we were wearing way back when...

The girls were wearing handkerchief shirts or kerchief blouses. Most of the time you could find them in stores, but they were so easy to make, you could use just a few large handkerchiefs and make them yourself.

We also did a lot of hand sewing with embroidery on our clothing and on our accessories. If it were made of blue jean material, we were embroidering our favorite 70s motifs and funky sayings on them and in various out of this world colors. We may not have been the generation to come up with the Happy Face and Flower Power, but we sure knew what to do with them while decorating just about anything.

We wore lots of crazy colors as well as solids in our headbands and scarfs. Wearing scarfs was way cool back then and you could find them to match just about any piece of wardrobe you had at the time.

We also listened to records on a record player or on an 8-track tape or on cassette and of course, we listened to music on the radio. We enjoyed dancing along with the songs from American Bandstand and Soul Train.

Life was not easier back then, it was just life and we were teenagers with years and years ahead of us to make our own special path into the world we live in today.

Listen to some of the music from the 70s. There were many great songs from that era. Lots of love songs as well as just fun songs to sing and dance along with. If you love music, you really should find out more about 70s music. It was great back then and it's still good today.

*Ok, so, I've been trying for hours and hours now to get photos to load to Squidoo, that is way too much time to waste to load a photo, sorry there are hardly any here.

The most important things about being a 70s teen was enjoying all the great tunes, you friends, family and life!

Some of the Best 70s music came from:

- The Bee Gees

- Barry White

- Bread

- KC and the Sunshine Band

- The Bay City Rollers

- Andy Gibbs

- Doobie Brothers


- Chicago

- Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

- and more!

70s Dance Music and Clothing

...what did they really wear during the 70s?

Teens of the 70s were caught smack dab in the middle of the trippy hippy generation and the glam punk generation. Back then just about anything was good. You either had a desire to be different and look like your own self or you might have the desire to look like everyone else around you or you might dress like some of the popular bands of the era.

70s Music and Teens in the 70s

...what was it like to grow up in the 70s?

Growing up in the 70s is somewhat the same as growing up today; however, it is also nothing at all like growing up today. Teenagers were doing many of the same things they do today.

The girls were trying out new makeup tips and techniques. We were blessed with some great smelling scents and perfumes form Baby Soft to all sorts of fruit flavors and we burned incense just because we actually liked the way it smelled and for not for some other reason. However, it is possible that there many have been some others who did.

We liked to look good and smell good. I do however, not remember there being such a focus on the types of brands that we wore. This might be because we did try different things and a lot of those things the teens of the 70s just had to have in everyday life.

70s Music and 70s Movies - ...what were teens watching in the 70s?

Going to the movies at real movie theathers were something special and the teens of the 70s loved to listen to music as well as watch movies. Many of the most popular 70s songs were part of the soundtracks of the different movies that we were watching. Some of the various top hits of movies and soundtracks in the 1970s include but are not limited to these mentioned below. However, no matter what we were watching or listening too, we were enjoying the experience of living while the 70s passed us by too...

      The early 70's album "If I Could Only Remember My Name" by David Crosby is some of the mellowest, most laid back music you'll ever hear. A masterpiece of superb music in my opinion.
