Track Sample:



There were some great moments in the 70’s both political and social.

• End of the white Australia policy.

• End to conscription.

• Start of recognising land right for the first Australians

• And of course, some great sounds from amazing iconic bands during that decade.


It was a passionate era for music hanging on the coat tails of the 60’s revolution and music went on to voice the times of the 70’s. People in those days who spoke out socially and politically were silenced and considered trouble makers, so musicians used the stage as their podium and lyrics as their speeches,” in order to make social comment.

Ode top the 70’s © Copyright (LYRICS)






You won the trophy, I am woman hear me roar, hear me roar, hear me roar

Don’t need the money, just wanna be free to sing my song, I’ll be gone, sing my song


We’re living in the 70’s, The words you sang, they set us free Yeahhhhhhh



You made a new sound, you rocked and we turned up the radio, the radio, we turned up the radio.

The crowd attacked you, they rocked the stage and they wouldn’t go, they let go, they let go.


We’re living in the 70’s, you rocked, you rolled, you set us free Yeahhhhhhhhh



The sacks were packed we voted stay, we brought them back from hell that day

With white we ruled, for years before, now black and white, we stand for more

Gu-rin-da-ji they made a stand; Gough Whitlam gave them back their land

Much wrong to right, now it’s time, even Canberra made top 40 Yeahhhhhhhhh.





Not yet a woman not quite a child, you rocked, you rolled you drove us wild Yeahhhhhhhh



The stage was blazing, and the crowd exploded with dynamite, dynamite, TNT Oh dynamite

The metal grinding, you rocked the stage with Rock and Roll, see me rock, hear me roll


We’re living in the 70’s, you rocked, you rolled, you set us free Yeahhhhhhhhh





Not yet a woman not quite a child you rocked, you rolled you drove us wild Wildddddddddddd.
