Okay so there’s obviously so many great 70’s songs I can’t list them all, but here’s a few of my personal faves.

Some great 70’s movies to watch are probably ‘Grease’ and ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’; both of these films also have amazing soundtracks!!

I don’t know any good books from the 70’s but I’m 110% sure there’ll be some out there!
