Twisted Mix Tape Tuesday-70’s Summer Lovin’


OK people out in the blogosphere…this week’s Twisted Mix Tape Tuesday @ www.jenkehl.com  is again the 70’s and I was going to do a montage to Disco Duck but then (luckily for all of you) I started thinking about all of the songs that I used to listen to with my siblings and I decided that I would share some of those songs with you instead! You all can thank me later for not torturing you with Disco Duck!  HAHAHAHA! Sooo….let me give you a little bit of back story here…don’t fall asleep…it’s not like I am going to torture you with a photo slide view  show or anything that boring...so stay with me here…I promise you that it will be short and relatively painless!  So I am the youngest of three children in our family with the age difference of my brother being eleven years older than I am…so let’s just say that when you are a high school boy in the 70’s and your sister is like four…that is some serious dating candy right there!  He used to drag me along with him everywhere because all of his girlfriend’s thought that I was adorable therefore my brother was so sweet to bring me along!  Sheesh…those girls were such SUCKERS!  Any hoo…I spent a lot of time with him and the following songs remind me of spending a 70’s summer with him cruising around in his re-modeled Ford Model T Truck, with a custom welded chain link steering wheel!  What a visual huh?  So here you go blogosphere…the top five 70’s summer songs…well according to my brother!  Happy Listening!

Bonus Pick: I had to add this song...I grew up on a farm and this song ALWAYS reminds me of horseback riding and the smell of wild grass blowing in the wind on a hot summer day!

    1. Hey Thanks! I spent a lot of time with my brother that summer and these songs really remind me of all the fun that I had with him! Now...his girlfriends were kinda dumb to fall for the whole "I brought my sister" bit...but hey it seemed to work for him! ;)

  6. Wonderful list this week! My country-music-loving son heard the commercial where the kids are playing the intro to Smoke on the Water on their iphones and ipads and looked at me in wonder as I was "singing" along with it. I was able to give him a rock education, play him the original song and he even requests I pull up the video for him to watch every now and again when he sees I'm on my laptop. I might be able to convert him yet.

  9. My brother is 10 years older than me, although his girlfriends were losers and did not think I was cute, he did influence my music listening quite a bit. I totally get that, although I would not have complained about Disco Duck either! Thanks for the awesome memories!

  14. Gordon Lightfoot - Love. Somebody else picked this one - was it Jen? I forgot to mention how much I love him - and particularly this song. So I'll say it here. This song reminds me of going to the library in the summer time. Don't know why. It just does. ;)
