“Some people are like Slinkies - not really good for anything,
but you still can't help but smile when you see one tumble down the stairs.”
I think it's a toss up between the 70's & 80's, both are equally cringeworthy.Geez this will give me nightmares tonight thinking about it.
As a baby boomer, gimme the music (oft voted the most innovative, ever) but you can keep the lava lamps & fondue sets & absolutely shove the 'burnt orange' decor that ranged from saucepan sets to cars, FFS ...
I know i'm going to regret this;"oft voted the most innovative, ever"Ok - watcha got, please for the love of god don't say the beatles or elvis or dylan or the stones or someone who is either dead or a pensioner.
Likely a 'Nam/FlowerPower influence + improvements in recording technology (as always) - covered a little on 'Old Tim's' - nowadays 70s originals/cover versions seem to dominate film soundtracks.Personally, the early 70s with (US) chick ballads of Roberta Flack***/Carole King*/Carly Simon**; Glam Rock (The Doors/T-Rex, et al) and associated guitar riffs; Dark Side of the Moon/Tubular Bells, et al and their stunning recording quality (Quadraphonic (surround) sound had just come in).Shaggie's recent morphing of 70s hits Gangster of Love + Angel of the Morning to produce 'Angel' is nothing short of brilliant.*Locomotion cover launched Kylie's career**You're so Vain: who doesn't know it***The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8j_S7IQYIKwKilling Me Softly With His Song:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-B1wdau8uHU
We have hip-hop and hoodies; I think it's a draw.Cheers
