lol no dont remember the 70's the music was horrible i mean not all of it. but disco was trash the begginings of hair bands ugh.

60's on the other hand great time for music. i would say the 30's to the sixties was a great time for music in america. rap on the other hand is great both for its rawness, honesty, and does have great music. this is one of my favs.

this is a verse from still standing, goodie mob.....it seems he feels as you do lol

Verse Four: Cee-Lo

Yeah..
Each and every element that exists in this
universe is manifested from a thought first
Through the inner mind's eye of the unseen power in the sky
Gave birth to Mother Earth and all it's worth to you and I
This most loved invention, my conciousness is an extension
of Him, yet I'm flesh and bone with a mind of my own
To dig deeper than the surface, whether I learn
from your upcomings or your downfalls we all have individual purpose
It's amazing, how the streets do the majority of raising
of children who end up dead before hearing what you said
And it's sad, so all I can write about is what I had
Interpretations of life good and bad with a pen and pad
It seems like abortion, when I just write a small portion
It's either crumpled up or torn without lettin the thought be born
Young minded, and blinded in those days; I didn't want to
have a thought that I couldn't raise, nurture, and care for
Be there for, help prepare for, the times ahead
When someone doesn't agree with what is said, huh
And if they did, don't get all arrogant cause that's my kid
Just be thankful that it's good and somebody overstood
Now, the listener in here want the same flow but I gotta let it grow
Clever enough to let it go, if I don't wanna rap no mo'
And I'll make sure that no one ever forgets
It's immortalized forever, on wax CD's and casettes
And when someone goes to the store and purchases it for ten
The life cycle starts all over again
And I was granted this music as my soulmate, to procreate
and give back what I was given, a life worth livin
And I, am Still Standing, unscathed
Pain is for suckers to feel
MC's are running out of things to say, and
radio stations running out of songs to play, #!
We Still Standing, unscathed
And pain is for suckers to feel, huh
And MC's running out of things to say...

You were a nerd in the 70's weren't you. laffs...

i'm kidding relax.. I just wanted to make the point that people back then were more intune with being at
peace and against war and all the crap that this generation is fixated on. This TV generation is the most embarrassing generation to have ever existed. I dont mean those born into this gen i mean those who have bought into it.

um if im not in error the veitnam war happened in the 70's, along with iran contra, along with american spitting at veterans when hey came back to the states. it seems as though the 70's was a just as fixtated on war as the 2,000's are! and um t.v. been around lot longer than the 90's LOL so um i dont think they qualify for a label as T.V. generation. so looking back at america for me the 70's where the biggest embarisment. It was just a mess. But i guess no more than today its just rap is alot louder than the delphonics but thats when music started getting loud wasnt it, well i mean rock bands and dudes blarring it out of their car. They did it long before we did.

I just like the peacefulness of the 70's and apparently i'm not alone there are others who agree. Sure others played loud music before the babies of the 90's appeared on the scene. My point is that people behaved differently, and if you weren't part of it, you probably wouldn't remember that.

The 60's and 70's were the best years of music and my life.

BJ Thomas soothed my soul:




I remember slow dancing to Walter Egan & Stevie Nicks:

I was born in 1973 so this is some of the earliest music I can remember hearing. These songs (and a few others) started my life long love of music. Great thread !







and so sorry about the disco, but this song makes me smile
