#4M: 1970 - A Decade of Rock


Our guest musical conductor this month is Me! I get to choose our themes this month. All month long, Jingle Jangle Jungle celebrates Rocktober. You can follow the posts labeled #RMF2020, and you can also join in the celebration if you’d like. There’s more detail about the celebration here.

Today, in honor of Rocktober, I’ve made a simple challenge to the group of Monday’s Music Moves Me participants to choose a decade and build a playlist of rock music from that decade.

I know. This isn’t going to come as a huge surprise to anyone. The decade I have chosen is 1970.

Well, alrighty then… Let’s get to it!  

Please enjoy this week’s playlist:

  • 1970 - Rare Earth - Get Ready
  • 1971 - Rolling Stones - Brown Sugar
  • 1972 - The Hollies - Long Cool Woman In A Black Dress
  • 1973 - Dr John - Right Place, Wrong Time
  • 1974 - Redbone - Come And Get Your Love
  • 1975 - Grand Funk Railroad - Some Kind of Wonderful
  • 1976 - Wild Cherry - Play The Funky Music
  • 1977 - Manfred Mann - Blinded By The Light
  • 1978 - Eric Clapton - Lay Down Sally
  • 1979 - The Knack - My Sharona

Today’s post is part of the Monday’s Music Moves Me blog hop, hosted by X-Mas Dolly, and co-hosted by Stacy Uncorked, Curious as a Cathy. , and Ramblin with AM. Be sure to stop by the hosts and visit the other participants.  If you have a MUSIC* post, feel free to join in the fun! *sorry non-music posts are not permitted in this blog hop.


  1. We picked the same decade - but all different songs. Blinded by the Light and My Sharona are my favorites of your playlist.

    1. Thanks, Alana! I haven't yet made my way to the others, but I suspect several of us chose the same decade. I'm not complaining.. it's my favorite decade of all for music,

  2. Mary,

    Great theme for the dance floor. The 70s mewsic is what plays in my head frequently. There are so many good tunes from that decade. Your playlist is spot on this morning. Have a boogietastic week, my dear!

    1. Thanks, Cathy!

      You know I'm a huge fan of this decade. Looking forward to making my rounds to listen to everyone's choices. Have a great week!

  3. I love the theme and your choices. The 70's had great rock. Thanks for hosting.

  4. Whoa, everyone loved your theme for today including myself, and your choices are outta this world girlfriend! I think (and many others) my favorite one is Grand Funk Railroad - Some Kind of Wonderful & Wild Cherry - Play The Funky Music and of course anything by Eric Clapton for sure. So CAN I GET A WITNESS TO THAT! WOO HOO! YEP, SOME GREAT THEMES YA GOT GOIN' FOR US THIS MONTH! YOU TOTALLY ROCK GIRLFRIEND! hugs & stay healthy! HEY DON'T FORGET THAT MASK!!!!! HUGS

    1. Thanks, Marie! I'm rather partial to those tunes myself. Glad I could get your day moving..

  5. Great playlist, Mary! I really liked "Play that Funky Music", "Blinded by the Light", and "My Sharona". "My Sharona" is perhaps my favorite song by a two-hit wonder ("Good Girls Don't" was a minor hit by The Knack). And a couple days ago, when we got into the truck, "Play that Funky Music" was playing, and two of my teenagers started singing along! I was like, How do they know this song?

    1. HaHa! It's good to know that your musical choices are making an impact on the younger generation.

  6. Amazing: we both did the same decade and only matched on one song. Good picks for today!

  7. Great playlist, Mary! Most of those I'm not familiar with, so I enjoyed the introduction. Three I did know, Brown Sugar, Play The Funky Music, and Blinded By The Light are favorites from that era. :) Thanks for the rockin' dance, and thanks for being an awesome co-host and providing a great theme! :)
