Songs, Fashion, Styles And All The Awesome Things We Miss From The 70s Memories


We’ve all met people who refuse to move out of their favorite decade – either through their clothing style, the music they listen to, the shows and movies they watch. 

They feel comfortable or have such good memories of a certain period in their past that they chose to stay there.  It’s comfortable and for some reason, the times give them a warm fuzzy feeling. 

I used to have a desire to drag these people kicking and screaming into the here and now.  One particular friend refused to listen to the radio or any new music.  He was a musician that loved the music of the ’70s and ’80s and didn’t think there was anything new worth listening to. 

I knew what he liked and introduced him to some newer groups and dang if I didn’t change his attitude and opened up a new world to him.  These days I probably wouldn’t even try.  There’s nothing wrong with living in an era that speaks to you and maybe full of the best memories of your life.

Living in a comfortable era can help deal with the fast-paced electronic age that we currently live in. Having a little escape from our current environment sounds downright appealing.
