Lay Back and Think of England . . .

Soft Rock, 70s, America, Pop Culture
One, was the younger brother of soft rock duo Seals and and Crofts – the other intentionally misspelled his name for ease of pronounciation.

England Dan and John Ford Coley will hardly go down as household names in the world of soft rock – yet surprisingly still managed four No.1’s on the US charts over the space of just two years

10 Reasons To Love ELO

ELO, Band, Music, Free Downloads
When Jeff Lynne joined the band the Move in 1970, it was with the condition that the group blend their basic rock moves with classical music.

We both loved and loathed.

They inspired stylists and wig makers alike – but just who should lay claim to having the most famous TV trusses of all time

The Beatles Animated Series

the Beatles. Fab four, pop culture
As a kid, I had alot of early television memories. Fury, Ruff n Ready, The Many Loves of Dobie Gillies and My Three Sons among them.

Perhaps it was the cheap babysitting ideal the timber veneer His Masters Voice set represented - who knows - but as a three year old plainly televsion resonated

It’s been the 80s all over again at my place the past couple of weeks, with a never ending series of re-runs featuring ‘classic’ big hair, shoulder pads and dance moves.

The latest instalment was a screening last night of the quintessential high school saga – Pretty in Pink

Ripper, Hits, 70s, compilation
Most of us who grew up in Australia in the 70's would remember the K-Tel compilation albums that came out every couple of months or so.

Disco, Hits, Worst, Best Of, Pop Music, Rock, Rolling Stones
It was the era of Donna Summer, ELO, Racey and KISS.

When names such as Patrick Hernandez, Cheap Trick, Blondie and Ami Stewart ruled, and The Cars, Leif Garrett, Earth, Wind and Fire, the Village People, the Bee Gees and 10CC were commonalities

16 Again . . .

Couples, teens, love, romance, SMS
When you’re young, the whole ‘girlfriend’/’boyfriend’ thing is a little like prescription medicines, they come with an expiry date.
