I'm a child of the '70s. I grew up with my little transistor radio and loved so many of the hits of the day. They were the soundtrack of my growing up years. That said, it's hard to pick an absolute "favorite". And in what genre? In my home, I had "hippie" parents who exposed me, well, from in utero, to great classic rock bands like The Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, Led Zeppelin as well as others like Bob Dylan and Donovan and many more. But since I was a kid in the '70s lots of the songs that bring back childhood will be what you might have heard on AM radio, and the infancy of FM radio when everything was more freeform and you'd hear a lot of great stuff instead of the programmed type of playlists you hear now. DJs actually KNEW music and didn't have pre programmed "playlists" that they had to follow. And commercials were a little bit less as well.

I'm going to start with T. Rex - Bang A Gong (Get It On). Just one song that will instantly remind me of my old neighborhood and friends and school. We used to have roller skating in the gym after school on some Fridays in grade school and this would be a song that got played a lot.




Runners up:
The Hollies - Long Cool Woman in a Black Dress (also The Air That I Breathe)
The Steve Miller Band - Fly Like An Eagle
Wild Cherry - Play That Funky Music
Rod Stewart - Maggie May
Jackson 5 - I Want You Back
Janis Joplin - Me and Bobby McGee
Cher - Gypsies, Tramps, and Thieves

Heck, let me just link you up with my Spotify playlist, called Songs From My '70s Childhood, that should give you a nice idea of what my childhood sounded like.

I LOVE "Bang a Gong..." There is one moment near the end when Marc Bolan just sort of ... breathes... and that moment has made me weak in the knees for as long as I can remember! Ha ha. Such a great song.
