Songs I Loved as a Kid - 1970s




Ah, nostalgia. It's great, innit? Well no, not always. To steal a phrase from the obscure French guy, our remembrance of things past can be clouded by so many things, not the least of which is romanticising without clear perspective. When people talk about the good old days, they're usually referring to that time in their life when they felt the most happy, unencumbered by work, financial burdens etc., blithe to the problems of the world. But when it comes to the pure of enjoyment of music from bygone days, nostalgia can be a wonderful thing. (Shake your groove thang...)
