Just like I made a playlist for the 60s, the good old 1970s gets its own spotify playlist.
I’ve tried to cover as much ground as I could – from disco (Bee Gees, ABBA), Heavy Metal (Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin), R&B, funk, and soul (Al Green, Isaac Hayes, Marvin Gaye), lo-fi and punk (Buzzcocks, The Clash, New York Dolls), soft rock (Fleetwood Mac, Elton John), singer-songwriter (Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor), to good old rock & roll (Bowie, Springsteen, Aerosmith). I also tried to throw in some deep tracks, including songs from Ann Peebles, Candi Staton, The Damned, David Essex, Dr. John, Fela Kuti, Freda Payne, Jorge Ben Jor, The Osmonds, Richard Hell, Rodriquez, The Slits, and more.
And yes, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Dazed and Confused soundtracks are on here too.
I had a nice and relaxing Thanksgiving break, but it’s time to get back down to Bloomington and finish off this semester strong.
“Country road take me home, to the place I belong.”
Today is a great day. You’re in a great mood and it’s beautiful outside. You go out for a walk and you take the time to smell the roses and count your blessings.
These are the songs that should accompany you for these moments.

The Head and the Heart – “Down in the Valley”
