For many the ‘70s are the lost decade: a cultural Atlantis sandwiched between the hippie radicalism of the ‘60s and the incipient greed of the ‘80s. Not just an aesthetic wasteland concocted from polyester and shag carpeting, the ‘70s were a period when the values of the ‘60s-individual liberty, anti-elitism and respect for gender and racial differences became grounded in politics- where “doing my own thing” metamorphosed into “doing the right thing”, after national pride curdled amid political crisis. Yet despite a series of events that branded the ‘70s with an angry scar, people struggled to hold onto their optimism and innocence, however ironic, as depicted in those ubiquitous “Have a Nice Day” smiley faces. That sense of innocence unhinging was reflected in some of the song that topped the charts during those years.
