Subject: Imagine...Coma patient wakes up...And find they missed it....

Written By: Banks on 08/09/06 at 10:20 pm

Okay...

Imagine that someone you know went into a coma  late in 1969. Through some kind of miracle, they wake up with all their faculties today.

They ask you what has happened in the world over the past 37 years. They want to know about the political events, the wars, the fashions, the music, the movies and TV in the 1970's especially.

How would you describe the 1970's to someone, who has absolutely NO idea in any possible way of what had occured during that decade?

Most people who didnt get to live in the 1970's have heard at least some of the music, have an idea about the fashions, have an idea about the news events and have probably seen or have an idea of the movies and TV shows that had been around back then. But this person you 'know' knows absolutely NOTHING about the 1970's.

So, what would you tell this person about the events of the 1970's and why?

What songs would you play for them and why?

What TV shows would you show them and why?

What movies would you show them and why?

How would you allow them to see the fashions?

In what way would you allow them to see the disco era?

How would you get them to experience the 1970's in the most fullfilling possible way?






This is just about fun, its not meant to be taken too seriously, though I would like to see what you guys wouuld suggest and how you'd go about describing this great decade?

Good question. For the disco era, a combination of the Pure Disco cds and a viewing of Saturday Night Fever.
Fashions: the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Three's Company, and although its a period piece, the movie Dazed and Confused (which is also a good overview of music.)
The Led Zeppelin box set, didn't they own the 70s?
I'd be sorry to have to break it to them about Jimi, Janis and Jim and the Beatles not to mention Lennon even though that was 1980.
