I was born in 1967, so I was raised in the 70s and was a teen in the 80s.
I have a tremendous nostalgia for those years, and life was pretty great.
I grew up in Rotterdam, The Netherlands and the 70s were a time before mobile phones, personal computers and tablets, and there were only 2 television channels. If you wanted to listen to music you either turned on the radio or listened to your record collection. And vinyl albums were awesome, and still are!
Today, we all just download music from Spotify or YouTube but back then, you got on your bike and rode down to the record store and bought that Kiss album you’d been saving up for, then rode back to your house with your friend and the two of you laid on your bedroom floor listening to the album for the next two hours while play backing and air guitaring the songs. It was pretty great.
Growing up in the 70s, we didn’t worry about terrorism or school shootings, and racism didn’t seem to be nearly the problem it has become today. There were no massive Black Lives Matters campaigns, and political correctness was still many years away.
