    70s Were The Best Era

    Even though I was just a kid in the 70s I really miss everything about it. People were friendlier, I remember walking down the street and strangers said hi to each other.  The music was amazing, so much diversity from light hearted and happy sounding rock songs to crazy...

    I Missed The 70's In The Worst Way,

    I wasn't born till 76 so I was still in diapers and being pottie trained...really wished I experienced that decade...I love the music, the laid back atmosphere, the free love...but really I don't know. Maybe the time I did grow up was better, you always want what you can't have...

    Yep, Miss The 70's

    Born In 1962. Graduated 1981. The 70's were a time that was somewhat between past and inventing the future. Computer tech was kind of a mystery, yet it was really coming to fruition. The music and art of the time was always searching for the cutting edge, even if it was...

    It Was An Exciting Time!

    I was born in 1970 and as the decade progressed I have so many memories. In many ways I feel fortunate to have been a child in the 70s and a teen in the 80s. There are so many things I miss. The 70s get a bad rap and I don't understand why. The music (in spite of a lot of one-hit...

    I Wish I Was A Teen In The 70's

    I was born in 1970, so all of my memories of, IMO, the greatest decade ever, are through the eyes of a child. Whenever I watch an old movie (I watch tons of 70's cinema) or listen to classic rock (I've been to every KISS concert since 1979), I get a fuzzy feeling in my belly. My...

    Young As I Was, I Remember Them Fondly

    Lately, while doing housework, I have been listening to audio clips of radio talk-shows from  1970-76, complete with commercials and news reports, and just get taken back in time.I turned 10 in the late autumn of 1979, and the '70s was a great decade in which to be nurtured...

    The Best Of Times

    Do you remember when a loaf of bread was under a dollar? Orange, brown and yellow were the "it" colors? Disco was alive and well, and we didn't know what the 80's held for us? It was a really exciting time for many of us who were lucky enough to experience it! Lots of folks only...

    I'm Stuck In The 70s & I Want To Go Back

    I was born in 1968 and I miss everything about the 70s, the "good old days." I miss the music, the hippies (my mother was so beautiful), the world before computers, iPads and cell phones! I miss "Happy Days", "Welcome Back Kotter", "Laverne and Shirley", "The Jeffersons", "All...
