Hey OP this one was written about his fatherís passing, not many know about that. Would have never guessed myself. David Gates had a sweet soulful voice, wasnít my really my thing when I was younger but it puts me at ease today. That said my older sister had the Best of Bread when we were kids and I did listen to it when no one was around...

The corporations that control today's music took over in 1996. Since then, radio stations and other musical outlets have become increasingly more segregated with their music. There is no variety.
All of their playlists are sent from higher ups who have decided on what you should hear. These higher ups have deals with record labels on who will be promoted and shoved down your throat. There is nothing organic about it, and does not reflect on what is really going on in the world musically. It's a very evil brainwashing machine.

Re: 70ís Genre Music Can Heal a Nation
Wonderful thoughts, OP. When I listen to 70s pop music (my era)it takes me back to much happier carefree times when races all got along much better and seemed to be moving forward together. Too bad much of the pop music of this decade reflects the ugliness and divisiveness within our nation.

bingo

The 70s were awesome. Most people got along great. We were much more unified back then.

Before all the shit-stirrers came on the scene and poisoned the well.

I work for a local non-profit thrift store, and I am the guy removing the donations directly from good folks vehicles. What I have noticed is these old white folks donating old vinyl records all seem to have a very large percentage of black artists in their collections. Something like 20% of their collections are black artists.

I buy the 70's and 80's vinyl that is in good shape, and I have most of the artists listed by the OP. All great music, and those 70's records sound fantastic on my 1973 Yamaha NS-670 monitors.

70ís Genre Music Can Heal a Nation



(Note: I wrote all this myself so am quoting 100%)

I am an American Negro, aged 59, and I grew up listening to Pop music radio stations. We did not listen to the so-called ĎBlack Onlyí radio station. I was exposed to music from both white and black artists.

If you are a negro in America and only listened to Black artists then I think you may have missed out on part of the American Heritage. Music is a great uniter. Music reaches the soul and moves the body. The lyrics of songs can inform the mind. I propose that hearing popular music from both races grows love in the listener.

By contrast, most white Americans grew up listening to music by both races. The 70ís music genre had an excellent mix of talent and artistry. You have great groups like Chicago, the Doobie Brothers, the Eagles, The Bee Gees, the Four Tops, the Oíjays, the Temptations, the Jacksons, the Isley Brothers, Earth Wind and Fire, the Spinners, and more. We also had great solo artists. The music was soulful and expressive by both races. Who doesnít love John Denver?

Why do I call myself a negro instead of a black or Afro-American? Simply put my ancestors were already here in America before the White European immigrants came.

[link to webstersdictionary1828.com]

The definition of ĎAmericaní in 1828 proves my point:

AMERíICAN, noun A native of America; originally applied to the aboriginals, or copper-colored races, found here by the Europeans; but now applied to the descendants of Europeans born in America.

By reading this definition we see that at first, we colored people were the Americans, but now the term American applies to the white people whose forefathers came here from Europe. Black Americans, and Afro-Americans, start calling yourselves Americans! And if you want to differentiate by race, then we are American Negroes. Our ancestors were not African slaves brought here by ships. You will have to do your research on the slave industry of those times.
You are an American

We have been lied to. We have been a people with no country for decades and no culture but a pseudo-culture developed by our grandparents. Listening to only so-called Black music helped develop that fake culture. Add a lack of proper education and you see the plight of American Negroes in todayís America. Learn the truth and know that you do have a country, and you were born in it. You are an American!

With this new mindset, and by challenging yourself to listen to some 70ís music, you can begin to feel like you belong to something real. You can heal the divide between the races simply by embracing the music of the 70ís by both Negroes and whites. Listen to the love songs. Listen to the songs that evoke emotions. Hear the soulful crooning by white artists. Snap out of your brainwashing that says that white people are your enemies. No, they are the sons and daughters of people born here in America also. They only know themselves as Americans, and you should know the same truth. Look at yourselves, and agree that American Negroes do not even look like African people.

All we American Negroes needed was this one truth, that we are Americans, and proper education so that we could become effective citizens of this great country. I propose that you make a commitment to listen to 70ís genre music. There is a website that provides this music for free.

[link to www.musicchoice.com]

This site works with most cable companies.

graphic - musicchoice cable menu

At the top, click on Music Channels, and in the drop-down menu, choose 70ís. Last, you just log in. While you are browsing the internet, just listen to the music in the background. Push yourself, if you want to heal, and keep listening for several days. The music is good. The 70ís music can heal this nation. What a way to celebrate Black History Month, with the truth, we are Americans!

I leave you with one song and ask you who is Barry Manilow singing about?

Everyone also loved/loves 60's Motown, it was a great unifier.


"Reach Out (I'll Be There)" still gives me chills.

It's funny, I was thinking similar thoughts recently. Mine were darker, like who are these Sorcerers who figured out how to use music to separate us and make us hate each other?

Because it really started with music and the culture it nurtured/destroyed.

I'm with you on this.

2nd generation English/French Canadian and also a big fan of 70's music. I often nod off to sleep in the evening to that same music choice channel (though I wish the artist notes were better)

I bet it's because none of us gave a crap about race in the 70s. We just accepted everyone! Even as a young white girl, some of my favorite shows were Sanford & Son, Good Times and The Jeffersons, because they centered around the "humam" condition, not race!


Sure wish the younger bunch could experience it for a day, then they would see though all the liberal race baiting B.S.!
