Awakenings: And the music goes on…Stuck in the 70s

on December 26, 2013

See on Scoop.itAwakenings: America & Beyond

Different from the numerous musical genres of past decades, only a handful can be considered of the most successful and most popular during the 70s. First to be mentioned is SOFT ROCK (which was the “pop music” of that generation). This genre was led by artists such as Elton John, Chicago, The Eagles, Paul McCartney and Wings, The Doobie Brothers, Fleetwood Mac and Bruce Springsteen.

Sharla Shults‘s insight:

Where would be be without the music…the sounds, the lyrics, the showmanship? Each song tells its own poignant story, it is life within the moment. You can take an inanimate object, write about it in a song and it comes to life. Each tune touches the heart, opens the mind, stirs the soul.

  1. The two things that really evoke a time past for me are smell — and music. Especially music. It carries me like nothing else in the world.

  2. Rock music was the only good thing to come out of the 1970s!

    I only remember vaguely music from the 70’s. I was too little…
    I found out about later – and most of the time I don’t like it too much… I like some of it – there are a few singers I like – one of them Janis Joplin. She was amazing (whenever she was sober… LOL)

      You are right about Janis Joplin but I love her music. The 70s is one of my favorite eras. Lot of great musicians and music out of that era. I am learning a lot doing the Awakenings postings. Most of the songs I remember but never did learn the different artists. Good to put a name to the recordings!

    I love 70s music.
    For me the answer is simple – Born to Run – The best song from the best album of all time by the greatest rock artists Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band!
