    1970s music

    What would be your favorite best and worst song(s) of the 1970s? I'm talking about music that just defines the era for you - the tunes that when you hear them, they take you back to where you were, how you were dressed, and what you were smokin (ha!) when you first heard it. My taste in music is really eclectic, so please differentiate between the good, bad, or ugly, as I'm apt to like it all!

    I'm doing a mix cd for work - we're dressing 1970s for Halloween. I will name the CD "1970s - The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly".

    I'm making a sock puppet out of a knee high stocking - it will look like Cher. I'm getting a cheesy mustache and I'll be going as Sonny and Cher Energy! I see a really bad ventriloquist act in my future.....but it'll be fun! Yes, I know, Sonny & Cher were more of a 60s thing, but you couldn't have the 70s without the 60s right? And that's when their tv show was on too.

    And I thought a mix cd would be fun as well.

    So....songs? Ideas? So far I'm thinking:

    I Will Survive (good or ugly, depends on what time of the month it is!)
    Disco Duck (really ugly)
    YMCA (GREAT)
    American Pie (good)
    Afternoon Delight
    Rapper's Delite (ugly)
    Play That Funky Music (I double dog DARE you not to shake your booty to this one!)
    Shake your booty (good)
    Stayin Alive (good)
    Grease (good)
    Theme from Jaws (GREAT)
    Da Doo Run Run by Shaun Cassidy (cuz he was my first celebrity crush, but hey, I was 9 and it was the 70s)
    Muskrat Love (ugly)

    And NO CHEATING from internet searches....because most of the above came from one!

    Can't wait to hear your ideas.....

    Thanks,
    Gina

    I love (and constantly play) anything by The Eagles. Your party sounds like lots of fun!!
    I pray for peace today and hope I don't have to tomorrow.

    I like all the songs you listed and I like about anything music from Big Bands to some today. Anything song really that has a good sound, beat, etc. In the truck we listen to an oldies station playing mostly 70s-80s. I'm 67.

    Cherish by the Association....love that one. Or any of the Rightous Brothers songs....Reminds me of my dating years. Isn't it funny how some songs just bring back memories of what you were doing at that time in your life?
