Music Flashback: 1976

I was so surprised and super excited to find out that the lovely Helen at Doing A 180 gave me the coolest award EVER...The Incredibly Prestigious OH MY BLOG Award. Here's the deal:

I have to choose ONE of the following options of accepting the OMB award:

  • Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight.
  • Write about your most embarrassing moment.
  • Write a “Soundtrack of your childhood” post.
  • Make your next blog a ‘vlog’/video blog.
  • Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning, before you do anything else (hair, makeup, etc) and post it.
Pass the award on to at least three other fabulous bloggers.

This one was a no-brainer for me.

As far back as I can remember, my happiest memories have always revolved around two things: food and music.

In the 1970's when I was growing up, music was always playing in our house. In fact, some of my earliest memories of my mother are of her dancing around the kitchen and preparing food with the radio blasting. Come to think of it, this is something she still does today.

The soundtrack of my youth would be all of those wonderful--sometimes cheesy-- but always happy songs from the 1970's that were almost as delicious as the food. There are too many to name, but I have picked one that always puts a smile on my face. Enjoy...

Finally, I am passing this award on to all of my favorite bloggers, because I can't possibly pick just 3! So if you are reading this, consider yourself awarded.

Now go listen to your favorite cheesy 70's song and whip up a nice aspic. Trust me, it will make you feel great.

Thanks for the blast from the past. Now you know why I was thrilled with my 1970's Disco 50th Birthday Party! Nothing like that music (and now I sound like an old fart!).

Oh boy, now we know what song will be running through my head all day today and maybe even into tomorrow.

Ah, cheesy 70s music! I love it too, brings back my childhood/teenage years like nothing else except maybe Jell-O with fruit salad in it ;)
