Two months ago when I signed up for this year's challenge, I thought maybe I should switch gears slightly and go with another slightly personal, yet universal theme. In ten minutes I had over half of the letters filled in. In just a bit more time I had all but u and v taken care of. I had some photos I planned to use, but something was missing. I was passionate about my topic, and still am, but was not convinced I could strike a chord with others using it.
Then something happened...I saw trending on facebook (my teens just love it when I say that) that the Captain and Tennille were divorcing. That was some rough news for me to see just sort of hanging out in the sidebar of a page. What would my seventies have been without Daryl Dragon and his dashing wife? How could their muskrat love have failed? They practically taught me what love was, along with a whole host of other artists of course. I longed for the comfort of my childhood living room, my giant brown earphones and those sappy, sweet and soft rock seventies songs. That was it!
I had that other list all filled in though, and I hate to see a good list go to waste. I started to fill in some of the letters with seventies songs, but just couldn't commit. I finally took some time today to fill in the whole alphabet, and while I am sure I will change some around the night before each letter goes up, the seventies serenade is ready. The catalog is much more diverse than last year, as much of my taste in music back then was largely dependent on whatever adults around me were listening to, since this was my first decade of life.
I hope that you will stop in, hum a few bars...and that some of you are old enough to remember the songs as well!
How about a teaser?
