Old music may be old, but there are reasons it has endured all these years. It’s nostalgic and fun. It doesn’t carry the baggage that most of today’s music does, although that doesn’t mean it’s just fluff. Some of it is quite deep. It speaks of eras long gone but fondly remembered.
You can keep the legends alive by planning family parties around a particular era or decade. Want to recapture the 1950s? Find or make poodle skirts, leather jackets, and learn some of the dances. Have someone dress up as one of the famous heartthrobs and deliver some good old-fashioned tunes.The whole story can be found at http://www.designmom.com/2012/04/disco-ball-helmet/
The 1960s was a decade of change. Play records from well-known artists, watch movies or television shows made by classic singers, or have everyone dress up as a garage band. Perform some oldies classics or even write new and silly words to existing songs.
For the 1970s you’ll need a disco ball. Or something to reflect light like one. Bell-bottom pants and peace symbols were famous items of the decade. (And in the late 1960s, too.)
With a little imagination and creativity, it will be easy to think of unique and decade-specific activities for you and your family.
