the seventies: 1977
it’s been a busy week or few weeks for me now, but i’m proud to say that’s we are almost done with the seventies! it’s been long, i know, so thank you for being patient with me while i juggle work and my online class, along with getting a good amount of sleep.
*the top hit of the year was rod stewart’s “tonight’s the night (gonna be alright)”, which was first released at the close of 1976 and carried on over to january of 1977.

as we get closer to the eighties, the artists and the songs are getting more foreign and more foreign to me… but that doesn’t stop me or anybody for that fact from getting to know them better.
that’s all for now.
