Earlier this month we threw a 1970s themed party. Among the polyester, platforms and mustaches was an amazing 70s playlist.
Dear Husband took it upon himself to create the perfect 70s playlist. He worked on this bad boy for weeks, possibly months. All the music had to be from 1974 or earlier and was a perfect mixture of soul, funk, rock and very early punk.
He had 4 hours of music plus an alternate list for the late night guests. This is just a sampling of his master list:
Carl Davis – Kung Fu Fighting
Barry White – Can’t Get Enough Of Your Love Babe
Love Unlimited Orchestra – Love’s Theme
Stevie Wonder – You Haven’t Done Nothin’
Kool & The Gang – Jungle Boogie
Jackson 5 – Dancing Machine
Neil Diamond – Cracklin’ Rose
Hall & Oats – Rich Girl
Elvis Presley – Suspicious Minds
Bill Donaldson & The Haywoods – Billy Don’t Be A Hero
Andy Kim – Rock Me Gently
The Isley Brothers – That Lady
Friends of Distinction – Grazing In The Grass
Isaac Hayes – Theme from Shaft
David Bowie – Rebel Rebel
Chicago – 25 or 6 to 4
The Commodores – Machine Gun
Bay City Rollers – Saturday Night
Sweet – Ballroom Blitz
B.J. Thomas – Hooked On A Feeling
Billy Preston – Nothing From Nothing
The Kiki Dee Band – I’ve Got The Music In Me
Led Zeppelin – Over The Hills And Far Away
Have a listen and let me know what you think of our super 70s playlist.
This month my friend Mari from Mari, Quite Contrary is hosting a mixed tape link up. Got a mixed tape of your own? Check it out and link it up.
