Back in the day .... Most teenage girls had the hots for Peter Frampton, did you?

This was the time when we thought that we were the coolest thing to ever exist. We were young teenagers who hung out in groups of no less than 4 people at most times, and yes occasionally we would get into some kind of trouble, which was caused by adults posturing ... Yeah they did LOL
Anyways, beyond that I really did have a pretty cool teenage life when you don't count some of the bad decisions that I made when I was a freshman in high school. There were parties and sleep overs, and sometimes "girls behaving badly" We would play drinking games and sometimes sit around in a circle and puff puff pass. We would giggle so much and then the paranoia would set in and last but not least THE MUNCHIES ;)
As all this was going on, the radio was usually playing in the back round, and the song in this video would play, and we would all sing along wishing we could be Peter Frampton's girlfriend, even though he was probably something like 26 or 27 years old at that time and we were considered to be jail bate LOL
So,listen and enjoy this video, also try to think back to what you were doing when you first heard this song. I would love for you to leave a comment, so that we can compare notes LOL

Records? What are those?

Remember when (if you were a teen in the mid to late 70's), you would get together with your friends to just hang out and listen to a bunch of record albums? ( Yeah, I know, "Records? What are those?") LOL
Not to veer too much off of the main subject but, both of my kids , who are grown up now, know all about records because I use to play them for my kids when they were little, and believe it or not, my oldest child likes to listen to a lot of the cool music from my generation like Led Zepplin, Pink Floyd , and AC/DC. But anyways, back to the main topic...
My friends and I grew up in a small upstate N.Y. town. The school had a total of 500 kids, K-12, yes, all in the same building, except that the elementary part of the school was on the far right end of the school, which have 2 classrooms for each grade level which is k-6 grades. Where as the left side of the school has an upstairs section for grades 9-12, and the downstairs of course is for grades 7 & 8. Well, needless to say, most of the kids in and around the grade that I was in, knew who I was. Where I am going with this is that a few of my friends were younger, and a few were the same age, and a few where older than me but, all of them seemed to liked the same kind of music that I listened to at that time.
Here is a video for you to watch, from yet another cool band from the 70's. I hope that you enjoy it :)
