Growing up in the 1970’s wasn’t really that much different than it is today. We all listened to music, whether it be rock, folk or disco music. I have been listening to a variety of music and bands since I was young. If it had a good beat, I was probably listening to it.
When I listened to music it was usually on my little radio, a Realistic from Radio Shack or my portable record (LP) player. I had a variety records that I would play. One of my favourite shows is That 70s Show. The music from the show took me back to those days so long ago, memories I will cherish forever.
What is Disco? Disco is a genre of dance music containing elements of funk, soul, pop, and salsa. it started around 1977 and began fading out in early 1980-1981. The disco era began with films such as Saturday Night Fever and Staying Alive.
There are many today, who refuse to admit that they listened to disco. I am not one of those people. I had a red pair of satin pants and loved to go to Roller Disco at the RoundAbout- A roller skating rink. 1979 was one of my favourite years growing up. I was 10, young and carefree.
When I do put music on these days, it is never anything in the past few years, it is always classic rock and some of my favourite disco tunes. I have created a few playlists to fill my need for days gone by. Yes, I am stuck in era when it comes to music.
