The 1970s Play Here

It’s Thursday and that means another trip back to the 70s and seven unforgettable classic songs.

The medley is not intended to wake you up or calm you down, but it serves as a reminder that great music didn’t stop when the 60s ended.

No, the last song does not end with a mistake. Just saying. 🙂

    I woke up with the energizing feeling of it being Friday and though it’s “only” Thursday, I appreciate I will get to feel this way two days in a row! Then I add in your musical kick off to the day and I’m on cloud nine! Smooth and classic 70s…you never miss a beat! 😉 Stay warm today….I know if you could bottle our good feelings from your medleys, you would need to open your window to keep from overheating! 🙂 XOXOXOXO 🙂

    Good Morning, Ray. You know the old saying, “if you remember the 70s, you weren’t there!”, let’s see if that’s true. Nice start with The Bee Gees. I like their earlier stuff better than the Disco Era, but this is a catchy tune, a real ear worm. A talented bunch. You don’t get smoother than Marvin Gaye. A dependable guy who made everything sound so natural and effortless. Also, not afraid to share the spotlight by singing a duet. A real plus. The Stones getting back to basics, they do that so well. Journey, is it me or were they never taken seriously? They were enormously popular but I have the feeling that they deserve more acclaim then they received. Three Dog Night, wow they could always get the party started! The novel approach of three, count ‘em , three lead singers. Who would ever think of that? Hit after hit but internal struggles and personal demons did them in, sad. The Beatles took us down many long and winding roads, as both they and we grew up. Chicago proved that you could use more than a saxophone in Rock and make people happy. They pulled out all the stops and it was fun. Good work Ray. You did it again. Rock on my Brother.

      Thanks, Don.
      I concur on the Bee Gees. The earlier music was, in my opinion, better but they did rule the 70s so I can’t ignore that.
      Marvin had so many internal demons and the last few years of his all too short life were not happy ones. That said, the man had an incredible voice.
      Journey, just like Three Dog Night, had far too many internal problems. When Steve Perry left Journey and Chuck Negron left Three Dog Night, that was the end for me.
      I’ll give you a heads up. I’ll be here with a very special Valentine’s Day medley on Sunday. Grab your bride and be ready to (slow) dance. ❤️
      ROCK ON, BRO!

    what a fabulous set of songs from a great era. Back in the day I knew the songs and the words to the songs but most I didn’t know who sang them. Growing up, music was my escape from a not so great childhood so who sang what didn’t matter much. Wasn’t until later that I tied names to the music. When I was getting ready for my hs reunion last year, was going down memory lane and brought up the bee gees. Did not realize how popular they were nor how far back they went. I too, was not impressed with the “disco era” but in my research of the bee gees there was/is so much more to them. Not only great singers / songwriters / producers BUT brothers. I can guarantee if me and my siblings tried to do anything like them (never would since none of us can sing .. LOL) we likely would have killed each other .. LOL (sorry for rambling) and don’t want to forget Joy to the world ….. love it ….. as well as the others …….. have a safe and warm evening …….. rock on!

      Thank you, Penny 🙂
      Barry, Robin and Maurice sold over 160 million records before Maurice and then Robin tragically died. I guess they did something right! A very talented family, for sure.
      Ah, and Joy To The World (written by Hoyt Axton whose mother co-wrote Elvis’ Heartbreak Hotel) was and is such an upbeat and joyous song!
      Stay Warm! Spring is coming! ❤️
