70's Music ?
« Reply #40 on: July 23, 2013, 10:22:04 AM »

Very true. You can't get much more sugary than this from 1969:
The Archies - Sugar, Sugar (Original 1969 Music Video)

This was Billboard's #1 song of 1969!!

http://www.bobborst.com/popculture/top-100-songs-of-the-year/?year=1969



...with Andy Kim on vocals.

He had a few hits in the 70's like " Baby, I Love You ", or " Rock Me Gently ".

Jeff Barry and Andy Kim wrote Sugar, Sugar and probably provided backing vocals.  Ron Dante (The Cuff Links) sang it...

So that's who that was. I always liked that song but haven't heard it in a long time. That video made me wonder what all the pictures with "Jackie" at the top were:

"Jackie was a weekly British magazine for girls."

That's one of the few 60's bands that I haven't been able to like. LOL

They served a purpose, though, along with others like The Ohio Express.  Psychedelia was a bit much for young kids in the late 60s.

Yep! That's one of the first videos I watched on YouTube. Ted was better then. I liked other stuff too, like when my brother and his band played this at The Red Lion:

Blue Cheer - Summertime Blues (American Bandstand,1968)


That's the wildest!

I loved Dick Clark. Bandstand was great of course and I always looked forward to those shows he used to have periodically with 50's and 60's clips. They're all on YouTube now! Now the blooper stuff he did...eh. LOL

Yes, Dick Clark was special.  He kept an open mind when it came to music...

In rock/pop music, there's nothing like the 60's, before or after that decade. Even my favorite albums of the 70's were done by 60's artists: Plastic Ono Band, Imagine, Mind Games, Walls And Bridges and Rock 'N' Roll by John Lennon; Band On The Run by Paul McCartney; All Things Must Pass by George Harrison; Who's Next, Quadrophenia, The Who By Numbers and Who Are You by the Who; Sticky Fingers and Exile On Main Street by the Rolling Stones; Lola by the Kinks; Morrison Hotel and L.A. Woman by the Doors; Workingman's Dead and American Beauty by Grateful Dead; Twelve Dreams Of Dr. Sardonicus by Spirit; etc.

Those 2 Stones albums are their best IMO, due to a large part for having Mick Taylor in the band and theyve never been as good since he left. (which is a long long time ago) ;)

I prefer Let It Bleed, I think that was their peak. Mick Taylor was already playing with the band, though he had less participation here. But Sticky Fingers is another excellent album, and my second favorite record by the Stones. And Exile On Main Street is very good considering that it's a double-album, where fillers are usually present, and their last truly great album in my opinion.

I tend to refrain from one-sentenced opinions when it comes to things as vast as a whole decade. I don't think it's fair to say that "the 70's were worse than the 60's" or "the 80's suck" or anything like this, because we're not talking about a song, or an album, but a whole freakin' decade. Yes, some of the 70's and 80's mainstream may have sucked more than before (Eagles selling that many albums is a crime). But let's not forget that there's much more to it than the radio hits. Tons of different musical scenes, filled with tons of different artists, playing tons of different styles. It has always been that way and it still is now. I don't see how it can be possible for one to hate a decade as a whole (hell, even a year as a whole), unless the said person hates rock/jazz/pop/blues/etc. music altogether. It's just way too vast of a subject, and deserves days and filled forum pages of analysis.

This is not a replay to anybody in particular, just some thoughts.
