Anything ABBA or Supertramp take me back to long summers of babysitting and swimming. Also anything by Billy Squire. As I got older, older than 16, I started really getting into Adam and The Ants, The Go-Go's, Blondie, etc. I was definitely a 70's & 80's gal. I still listen to all these as much as I can along with new artists such as Pink, Adele, etc. I loved the era I grew up in. Times were definitely easier and kids could be kids.

Come and get your love, Redbone, 1974. 
I have said before that the 70’s were the

best time of my life. This song which hit

the airwaves in January 1974 is still a

huge favorite of mine. Redbone, to me,

is a very underrated band from the ‘70’s

I'm still wondering which girl Bob married ....Roseann, or Donna ? Fun reading.

Back to the 60's music:  My son was four yrs. old, and he loved Englebert's , '"Lonely is a Man Without Love".   He would put his ear right up to the phonograph !  Funny, because when he grew up his taste changed drastically.  It turned to Led Zeplin and others I cannot remember.  

I have to say that the music after the 70's changed for the worse. Disco was a lot of fun ( Sorry 'bout that for you younger folks.)  In our day we danced cheek to cheek and did the jitterbug along with disco dancing.. Nostalgia and Romance was in the air. It was a great time to be alive.not worrying about what was going on around the world.

This is going to seem not on topic, but for me:

 

"Time After Time" - Ms Cyndi Lauper 

 

Our lives collided during similar medical issues at same time; she wouldn't know then but she healed me as she healed herself...

 

Since then, I've always gone back to those 80s events and thanked her silently for her words...

Chances Are  by Johnny Mathis.   First song I heard from his wonderful voice way back in the late 50's.

Then there is, Al Martino's , I Have But One Heart. and Look Around And You'll find me there.  

Both of these songs hold a special place in my heart.  Al's concert was my first date with my husband.

Today is the fourth anniversary since his passing.  : ( 😘

See Me, Feel Me/Listening to you by The Who in my 1st car heading to Robert Moses Beach. I had put in some speakers and had wires spliced together all over the car and I cranked up that 8 track, oh it was magical. Whenever ever I hear that song that’s where I am.

Frampton Comes Alive, released in 1976.
I was in 
Nursing School and this is an

album I played to death loud as can be.
Everytime I hear a song 
from this album,

it’s a trip down memory lane!

 

Something’s happening
Doobie Wah

Show me the way

It’s a plain shame

All I want to be (Is by your side)

Wind of change

Baby, I love your way

I wanna go to the sun

Penny for your thoughts

(I’ll give you) Money

Shine on

Do you feel like we do

In 1976 I was stationed at Naval Training Center, Great Lakes, IL, going through Hospital Corpsmen training. In the barracks, one of my roommates would play a cassette by Fleetwood Mac EVERY MORNING for a wake-up.  Loud as that little cassette player could go. My particular favorite song was REANNON (spelling may be wrong here). So, every time I ever hear this song it does bring me back to a time when I was a young future Navy Corpsman. By the way, after training, I was sent to Field Medical Service School at Camp Pendleton, Ca for training with the Marines. URR RAH FMF DOCS!

Stairway to heaven, Led Zeppelin, 1971. 
I have always been a lover of Led, but 

this song when it was released, to me

was groundbreaking. It was long, but not

too long, had differing tempos and unique

lyrics. It places number one on so many 

record countdowns. Still to this day in my

top five of fav rock songs 🎼

What makes me stop in my tracks is any doo-wop song from from the 50's and early 60's. Memories of watching the "Submarine Races", and going to the local drive in burger shop in my souped up Ford.
