[ # ] 70s Music still lives today
April 26th, 2017 under Uncategorized

In the 70s, a new kind of music was created which was the flawless melodious bridge from the defiant of the 1960s to the emergence of a happy 1980s. Dissimilar to the counterculture of the 60s, the 70s music was relaxing and could make people move. Through the 80s music, people could forget the war of the past decade, and enjoy some good music in dance clubs. That is when the Disco movement started as people needed a place to vent their frustration. Indeed, the 1970s was not the only decade which created a real transformation in terms of music, however it was unique.

If a word could define the musical style of the 70s, then Disco is the utmost perfect word, and Betty totally agrees with this. Betty has always admired the music style of the 70s. Betty Balls loves looking at these old song videos on YouTube occasionally, and she always hum of these songs while doing her daily activities. Do you know who Betty is? She is the darling of Lucky Pants Bingo, and the true love of Luke. Lucky Pants Bingo is the one place you will always find Betty and Luke while playing bingo games only. Those two lovely bingo mascots rock the bingo rooms every Saturday with their cheeky words, and amazing tournaments. If you want to know more of their unlimited love-tales, take a trip to one of UK’s best bingo website- Lucky Pants Bingo, and feel the bingo-love with the amazing Bingo couple.

It is no wonder that Betty loves that type of music. Despite that the 70s-music’s popularity was short-lived, that genre of music rocked the discos, and consisted of a great deal of artists and songs. Until now, fans still dance to these songs, and this music genre had a great influence on fashion as well. For instance, “The Hustle” by Van McCoy is still known as the first ever disco song. That song is said to have set the trend for disco tracks. Gloria Gaynor also gained popularity with her very famous “I will survive” which is still played at weddings and themed clubs. Do you still remember The Bee Gees? They literally defined the disco genre with their hit song “Jive Talkin”, and their most popular song still is “Stayin’ Alive”.

Other famous blockbusters of the 70s are The Village People’s “YMCA” and “Macho Man” which gave even more popularity to this genre of music. Rod Steward and Diana Ross also have a hand in shaping the 70s music when they added disco elements to their music releases, as well as releasing disco albums.

But disco music was not the only trending genre in the 70s. Other music genre such as popular rock from Pink Floyd, Queen, Electric Light and Kansas was also part of that culture. Funk & Soul songs from James Brown, Wind & Fire, Earth and The Isley Brothers were quite known, and we cannot forget Punk Rock from Patti Smith, New York Dolls and Talking Heads.

All we can say is… AH, AH, AH, AH, Stayin’ Alive!
