Thanks to Danica from Living the Beautiful Life for nominating

For today’s post I decided on a  quick tour of some of the music
that I listened to and loved in the 1970’s.

The 70’s begin with the harmonies of Crosby, Stills, and Nash.

Carry On

And the driving Rock of Led Zeppelin

Whole Lotta Love

 

As Diana Ross Leaves the Supremes.

Someday We’ll be Together

In 1971 Alice Cooper releases Killer and the song

Under my Wheels.

By 1972 we’re listening to Lou Reed’s Transformer Album

Satellite of Love

 

David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust

Suffragette City

 

and Cat Stevens.

Oh Very Young

 

In 1973 Disco is born when the Hughes Corporation releases Rock the Boat

 

In 1974 Joni Mitchell delights us with Court and Spark.

Help me

 

In 1975 the Jefferson Airplane becomes Jefferson Starship and releases
Red Octopus.

Miracles

 


In 1976 Donna Summer moans Love to Love You Baby

 


Steely Dan releases AJA in 1977

 

And by 1978 everyone is dancing to Saturday Night Fever

Night Fever

 

While Hanging on the Telephone with Blondie

 


And listening to More Songs about More Buildings and Food By the Talking Heads.

The Good Thing

 

We say good bye to our musical tour of the 1970’s with Devo’s Clock Out
from Duty Now for the Future.

Clock Out

 


Today I nominate everyone. 🙂

      1. The last half of the 20th Century saw a burst of creative expression in all of the arts.

        By 1978 there’s an abundance of new music and the emergence of multi-media. My list doesn’t include, Kraftwerk, Ian Drury, Television, and Patti Smith.
