Time travel is easy for me, music is the force that does it, no Delorean having to reach 90 mph, just a song, part of lyric and I bounce back to when I was in my teens. (that’s time travel!)
The music of the 70’s seems more poetic, there was the hippie stuff, but there was also the fun music – The Streak, Float like a Butterfly, Elderberry Wine, all the Stones, the Aerosmith, the Alice Cooper “School’s Out!”, Radar Love, How do you mend a broken heart?, Just my Imagination, Crocodile Rock, Seasons In the Sun, Silly Love Songs, Spiders and Snakes, and one I will never forget. ” Hooked On a Feeling”
I was a regular roller blade guy on Monday nights in Vancouver. One week we would go to North Vancouver, then the next week we would go to Richmond, and then the next Vancouver. I would fill out the car with girls who wanted a ride, turn up the music and we would go and have fun.
The guys would zip around when it was men only, and that was always fun and a bit on the edge. There would be a big crystal ball in the middle and the lights would go down for the couples only. All fun and innocent, great times.
I also went to the ice skating parties also, never was the best at skating but that didn’t matter because it was just going around in circles and enjoying the music.
