Re: Remember This? What Were you doing?

Don't recall the music .... never much interested in soul music.

 

In 1971, I turned 29 .... living in LA about a year and working at a major stockbrokerage firm ..... and planning to relocate to SF.

So fab!

 

Love the song and the slow drag dance moves.  The voices!

 

The outfits are perfection...all that natural hair is beautiful and amazing!

 

I was 21 that year.  I'd like to go back!

 


Me too!

I don't remember it and have no idea who is singing it. 

 

1971?  Working Graveyard Shift/Auto Racing around the Midwest/Playing in, and running my Adult Hockey League. Working those hours wasn't conducive to having too many dates.

 

Many I dated didn't think spending a Sunday/in the hot sun/listening to loud race cars/in an area with dust in the air, as a great date.

I think the movie The Five Heartbeats was based loosely on a combination of the Chi Lites,  The Dells ...  along with the Temptations ...  it's a good movie with some great songs:

But they were the ones that said "I would love to go with you"! Most never went a 2nd time. Guess they weren't into getting a nice sunburn and sweating(perspiring) and leaving with a thin layer of dried dust(mud) on them. They didn't even seem to enjoy the beer later at the bar, they did eat the food though!

 

Couldn't take them to the hockey games unless they drove there themselves. I had to leave games early at times and head to work, yep I was and am always early, even my jobs. Don't remember any girls taking me up on hockey games. 😥

@Lilysmom - I was also a freshman in high school.  I remember our embroidered peasant blouses and bell bottoms, chunky platform shoes, and long straight hair (no bangs) that we literally ironed on ironing boards!  I was a huge fan of both American Bandstand and Soul Train.  Love the perfectly coordinated dance moves on ST! 

 

This all reminds me of the show American Dreams starring Brittany Snow.  Loved it.

@CJC I guess these artists were on Soul Train, I heard them on the radio.
