    1970s music

    I absolutely love music from the 70s some absolute classics came from that decade, but the thing I love the most about that decade is the way they didnít care that the lyrics didnít always fit with the soundtrack, they just made it fit by shortening or elongating the lyrics to suit the soundtrack. My favourite is Toto, Africa. Genius.

    Iíve just realised that toto was the 80s. Iím away to bed to dream about bands that had that 70s sound in the 80s. This message will self destruct in 54321Ö.

    Rising like Olympus over the Serengeti

    Great song, strange lyrics and not 70ís😂😂😂



    Much prefer Rubber Bullets by 10cc or No more Mr Nice Guy by Alice Cooper.

    There's loads of 70s stuff like the Police, the Jam, etc. that I'll always associate more with the 80s.

    For me the 70s were the likes of

    T-Rex
    https://youtu.be/XNkwe86LY6Q

    Sweet
    https://youtu.be/WNXFtVWB47E

    The Eagles
    https://youtu.be/hG4gGsb_iyM

    Bryan Ferry/Roxy Music
    https://youtu.be/bnr5eCEoXro

    I'll stop there.

    Too Much Too Young couldn't have been the 70's could it?

    Just. 1979.

    Brilliant whatever year.

    That's one I'll always incorrectly lump in with the 80s. It's probably because I think of the 80s as secondary school (for me) onward, even though I started in 1979.

    First LP I ever bought, EP came out in 1980 in case anybody getting confused.

    70's music is when I got seriously into music, Boz Scaggs - Silk Degrees, Average White Band - AWB and Cut the Cake and Steely Dan - Can't Buy a Thrill are just some of my favourites. In the late 70's The Jam, The Police, almost forgot Lou Reed and Robert Palmer. Some great music in the 70's.

    Thw Average White Band and Steely Dan are 2 of my favourites from that era. Don't think many people who listens to AWB realise they're from Dundee. Another from the late 60s early 70s that I like listening to is The Doors. I'm not really into music from that era, can't be bothered with the Beatles or Rolling Stones, but The Doors I can listen to. Jim Morrison was a bit of a space cadet but some entertainer.

    And that's just the artists that I liked, there were many more cult artists that didn't float my boat back then but I'll happily listen to now. No other decade comes near the 70's.

    So many great bands from the 70s. From the Stooges and the MC5 at the start of the decade, the punk bands of 76/77, two tone and the start second wave of punk bands. Great decade for music.

    Hers one of my particular favourites

    Started secondary school in 1970 then it was T. Rex, Bowie, Slade, 10cc, Sparks, through heavy rock like Led Zep and Nazareth into punk/new wave and that was it, way way too many too mention there.

    The 70s was a golden era...shame most of the 80s was so pish for music!

    Here's a perhaps less well known 70's classic, September Gurls by Big Star.


    https://youtu.be/BNKSs1J38EA

    The singer is the late Alex Chilton (who had a number 1 in the USA when aged 16 as vocalist for the Box Top) But for poor management, record deals and just plain bad luck they could and should have been massive.

    For Rock/Rock and Roll in the 70's I suppose it was it was a perfect storm. There were thousands of artists wanting onboard he gravy train and record companies were willing to gamble and allow a band time to grow over two or three albums even if they were hit-less during that time.

    So artists had room to experiment and find some kind of individuality, which was a potent mixture if there was genuine talent -which leads to all that great music from that decade. There was also a huge amount of pesh though, as with any decade.

    IMHO by the early 80's all the experimentation possible was over, the post-punk bands drained that well and after that there are very few "original" rock and roll bands, some good bands and songs through the 80's and 90's but for bands starting in those decades they are all walking around in other people's shoes.

    All the cutting edge switched over to House and Hip-Hop. The same thing happened to Jazz in the late 50's early 60's and the same thing is happening now with Hip-Hop.

    Only saw 11 of the above bands

    Found my love of music in the early 70's with the Glam rock of Slade, Sweet, Wizard and the likes before progressing onto metal and a very eclectic taste over the years.

    A few mates at school were into the Northern Soul, so i could be at Clouds one night and Nicky Tams Tavern the next.

    What a list! We're separated at birth - if only musically.

    I'm sure we have at least as much in common as that that we don't.

    Not sure if anyone listens to Sounds Of the 70s on Radio 2.

    On Sunday, Johnnie Walker was talking to Bob Harris about Whistle Test being 50 years old 😳

    2 of my favourite DJs from that time, discussing my favourite ever music programme 😍

    Early 70s glam rock was superb, slade were probably the best band i've seen, they were fantastic live.

    Leith town hall rocked when they played there, the atmosphere in that place was as good as any Wembley or murrayfield concert.

    Wish I'd been there.

    Queen and Mott at the Caley was as good as it gets but I think we've raved about that gig already on here

    I saw Slade at Norbreck Castle, you'll know the place mate. Was far too near the speakers I swear I couldnt hear properly for about three days. They were brilliant. Slayed was probably about the second or third album I possessed.

    Bowie, 10cc, Thin Lizzy, Motorhead, Clash, Specials, Tom Waits and Madness in that order as new loves. Special mention for Slade, Pilot, Blue Oyster Cult, Ian Dury, Rockpile and Springsteen.
    Elvis Costello and Steely Dan were 80s deep dives.
    Anyone else remember Albertos Y Trios Los Paranois?

    Silver Springs from the same era is a fantastic song. Intended for the Rumours album it didnít make the cut, ended up a B side but regularly performed since, and the lyric is well in keeping with the rest of the album so a shame it missed out.
