Ebony Eyes

I remember hearing this song on the radio the year that I was going to turn 16. At that time I did not know that Bob Welch was a band member of Fleetwood Mac, before Lindsey Buckingham and Stevie Nicks had joined the band.

I think that this song has very cool sounding music to go with the quirky lyrics, which, in my book, is usually a very good combination.

When I found this song on the web and played it, it was like a rush of memories, from my teen years had started flooding into my head, some were good, and some were not so good LOL, but none the less, this song, as well as many others, from that time period, seem to always have the power to take me back to how I was feeling, during that time in my life.

Back in the 70's, I had a small stereo type record player that also had an AM & FM radio. I would sometimes take it outside on my
porch, which was on the second floor, and I would play records, while I was hanging out with a bunch of my friends.

We had no computers, no portable electronic gadgets, and no video game systems to play with. Yeah, I know that the younger generation can't imagine what it would be like to not have any of these play things, and they are probably thinking,'how boring that must have been."

Okay, enough with the talk already LOL ... here is the video for you to enjoy.

What do you miss about the 70's? I miss hanging out with my friends, and not having a care in the world, except for worrying if my hair and make up looked okay :)
