Your 70's Musical Guilty Pleasure
« on: October 19, 2016, 05:49:31 PM »
Right, Buc's disco thread set me thinking about 70's music.
Since we've had an influx of auld bastards onto DT recently there must be a fair few out there who lived through that decade, so come on and share music that was miles away from your norm back then but represented a guilty pleasure. I'd like to set the ball rolling with this absolute belter from The Kursaal Flyers. I can still smell the cheese forty odd years on  ;) :thumbsup:

Another one.

Incredibly this song was banned on Radio 1 back in the day.
Apparently references to getting a handjob weren't allowed.
Amazing considering what their DJs were apparently up to at the time

This was in the charts when i started high school. Nick Garvey has to be one of Britain's most underrated songwriters ever.

Co writer Andy McMaster was Scottish.
 
Great band The Motors. Apart from Forget About You and the obvious Airport, my favourite track was this:

 I Effing loved that song,(still do) ^^^^


 But,by guilty pleasures I look at it as songs you were embarassed to like.As more a heavy rock man back in the day,c/w the long hair,and the Rush/Led Zep sew on badges on the back of the Levi jacket, a few songs slipped thru the net

 

 and..er

Another guilty pleasure. Could never ever ever have admitted it in the 70s. It would have killed my old man for one...

MY SQ ref was more that my Mother liked the original Hank Williams? country version then I played her this!

Iwas/am still a huge SQ fan (but not the awful cover-band era shyte)

I went to buy this single at the newly opened Asda at dyce.
When I got there I saw that they had a greatest hits album for 99p that had the track on it so I bought that instead.
All of the other tracks were pish of course.
The slagging I took over the years for having that album in my record collection was incredible.
