We’re going retro this week—to the 70’s! I know, some may say “why?” or “ew,” or even “the 70’s were lame.” On the contrary. The 70’s were pretty epic, and the music scene was heavily evolving!
It’s time to embrace the music!
What better way to start out than with the Queen! Most people will say, but it’s so overplayed, and “I remember that song from Wayne’s World! Party on, Wayne! Party on, Garth!” True. . .but it’s a great song, and is featured in many, many prominent flicks, and playlists. It’s just that great. . .plus Mr. Fahrenheit. What’s not to love?
I’m gonna say this is pretty self-explanatory. I don’t care if you think it’s overrated or not, this is an essential song to rock, and its evolution. Climb that stairway, you crazy diamonds.
Pink Floyd’s Rock opera, The Wall, gave us the incredible three part [traditionally so]. Most probably are familiar with part two of Another Brick in the Wall, which is about Education, and well, play that one the most. It’s a great album, and a great set of songs. IF you haven’t gotten to listen to all of them in its splendor. . .do so.
A true anthem for the night. It’s also one of the many songs used in Saturday Night Fever, starring John Travolta. You gotta love that Disco. . .even if you might hate it.
Aside from being already an awesome song. . .it’s pretty much everyone’s favorite anthem, song, theme song, and so on. It’s also the song for Supernatural. What? You didn’t see that coming? Seriously, the 70’s were freakin’ awesome, and should be appreciated. . .because music is the heart that helps keep us going. Without it, we’d be such boring, sad saps. . .or worse. . .Puritans [or something far worse, and uptight.].
That wraps it up for this edition of Music That Inspires You. Check back Wednesday for more retro fun!
