12th May 1979

Saturday 12
Work 9 -6.00pm
£4.50
Phoned Sam at lunch time
He phoned at 6.00 but I wasn't home
I phoned him back but he was out
His dad said Sam would phone back but he didn't
Baby sat 8.30 - 1.45am
Got £2.00 (oh what slave labour!!!)

I am a bit pushed for time tonight .. a combo of Chinese torture aka pilates class and studying (eek I have mock exams in 16 days. I was rubbish at studying 30 years ago ... nothing has changed since !!)

So I threw 1979 into 'you tube' to see what came up!
This is definitely a sign of what happens when you get older. I remember this track as a teen and the fact it was Herb Alpert & Tijuana brass turned me straight off ... this was the stuff my Mum listened to .... scarily I found this quite mellowing now!!!




hee hee I remember dancing to this just a few weeks ago..... hadn't realised it was out in 1979

I never liked Queen in the 70s.. it was Freddy, his outfits and teeth.Sorry but that is the truth. Hey that is a teenager thing!! As as an adult I realise just how talented Freddy was (Hammersmith Live 1979)


Now this band I was heavily into in the 80s but this was out in 79 I have discovered .. 'Japan'

I loved Queen. Freddy? Not so much. Could have been the shirtlessness.

Oh my God! It has happened. I have become my mother. I really liked the Herb Alpert track.....

hey I think herb alpert is pretty cool now too

70steen said...

Annie girl ~ I do like Queen music now, I think as I said up there it was Freddy that put me off & as for Bohemian Rhapsody just couldn't get along with that at all

70steen said...

Diane~ it is scary I find I am more and more like my mother every day .... particularly when I am nagging my teen about her bedroom etc.... The final straw will be thinking Burt Bacharach is cool....hopefully I will resist lol

Hi Teenage diary girl & Welcome to 70steen & blogland :-)
It will be interesting to see how your blog develops and to see how being a teen on the late 80s/ early 90s differs to my teen years.

DP ~ what did Diane do????
You know however that to resist is futile and typos are the futuere *snigger*

70steen said...

B4by ~ Japan were so cool .... The Strokes? I must take a wander in to you tube and take a peek

Happy Tuesday to you too :-)

70steen said...

Yep NM ~ it just creeps up when you are not looking lol :-)

Daddy Papersurfer said...

I've just been doing some correcting over at Baby's place ...... hope you did better in your examinations today.........

70steen said...

thank you DP ... I am old school and thankfully the exams are too... good old pen and paper, (very strange writing for all that time and trying to be legible... mostly though it is legal references though) so no typos just the occasional strike through

I don't think I will ever master this darned typing lark lol :-D
