It's like stepping back into a car in the '70s, all the songs from then.,

First. I sure do not love -- or even like -- all of these songs. Gawd. Lots of disco represented here, just other things that don't much blow my skirt up, as it were.
But I know every song on this collection, it really is like a time machine for me, and bittersweet, too, good memories but definitely mixed in with other experiences.
But the magic of music seems to be that it takes me right back there, in feelings, too. Good and bad feelings from then but the bad has faded off mostly, seen from a perspective of decades off, I have clearer vision, not clouded by the immediacy of the situations, either, which also helps distance.
Yet even with the distance and clarity, the songs still make it through, loud and clear; I'll skip past the ones that I don't like but even hearing the intro to them takes me to a time -- I didn't like the songs then, either.
Any old ways, I'm real glad to have this collection. It's a time machine.
