Where does the Bathtub Time Machine stop this week? Ah, the 70s! I think of a few things good and bad when I think about that era: Bad fashion, the Muppet Show, John Travolta, Star Wars, and of course disco. Of all the eras, this is probably my least favorite. But I WAS born in the 70s so I have to give it some credit!
Speaking of bad 70s fashion, the above picture is my husband’s attempt to bring back the 70s pornstache earlier this year. According to popular opinion it was epic. That stache is long gone, and now he’s working on more of a Tom Selleck look…
When I wrote my guest post I Go Back, Way Back for Jen Kehl last week, I mentioned LaToya, our Toyota Tercel station wagon. In the 70s my family had the iconic vehicles-a Volkswagon Beetle and a Volkswagon Bus! Talk about a way cool factor that negates a lot of the uncool things about the 70s! Unfortunately I don’t really have any pictures of these and my memory of them is too vague to find pictures that are close on the internets. What I do have for you however are some of my very favorite songs from the era:
Hotel California-The Eagles
Time in a Bottle-Jim Croce
Cool Change-Little River Band
Bridge Over Troubled Water-Simon and Garfunkel
While there isn’t a ton of music I love from this era, these are the ones that I can listen over and over to and not get tired of hearing them! This week I picked my favorites. Next week I’ll introduce you to what I refer to as “70s Earworms”.
I leave you with one last little ditty from the 70s, just for fun. Come on, you knew there had to be some sort of Muppet clip in here!
Movin’ Right Along
