70s logic.

70s music really gets me down sometimes. When I was a child in the 70s, I had such a clear idea of what my adult life was going to look like. I would be thin and stylish, and there would still be lots of feathered hair and discothèques. OK, so most of my sense of what adulthood was like probably came from watching too much Love Boat and Fantasy Island (with a pinch of Cinderella thrown in for good measure), but I was definitely certain that all of my problems would be solved by the sheer act of growing up.

I hear 70s music now and sometimes I just feel so fucking ripped off. This is not the bill of good I was promised. I want a fucking refund!

Ever see "The Ice Storm" based on the book by Rick Moody? It takes place in the 70s and makes everything about the 70s (especially the culture of the upper classes) look utterly fucked up.

Er, probably best not to watch it any time soon though.

I say you write an open letter to "70s Music" and bitch it out for its failures. It would be a fun writing exercise and perhaps it will help you focus your anger and aggression creatively...and amusingly!

(Sorry, I had to edit this a bazillion times!)

I have the same issue but with the 80s.
