    1. The middle and late ’70’s were another great time for music. There was a lot of diversity, and people could really mix it up. If they were building a playlist, it’d have soul, country, rock, easy listening, even jazz all mixed in there.

  2. When I saw #10 I thought to myself did the Carpenters do that? I guess being a Canuck the original by Klaatu fills that spot in my tiny brain! Love looking at these!
