Why does music have such an impact ?
Music is the love of the soul and stressed minds are relaxed with good music. Music also has the ability to make people dance. Music of all types lies buried in our memory. You only have to hear something on the radio to remember where you were and what you were doing 20 or 30 years ago. One writer said that there are two beautiful things introduced by man on this earth and those are “Maths and Music”. Artists may protest but there is a beauty in the symmetry of sound.

The 70s decade is known for the rise of disco. There are many other trends from the 70s, but disco music stands tall. People have made many lists for the best hits of 70s. We all have a list of songs of our all-time favourites. God created the best musicians and singers for this decade and it is really difficult to make a list of 100 or 1000 best hits as every song deserves to be at the top. Everyone has a different taste and sense of music and that is why we have different method of selecting personal favourites for the hit list.

There were other types of music also introduced in 70s. These included jazz fusion, rock, hard rock, funk, art rock, progressive, soul and smooth jazz etc but the disco music was very warmly welcomed by people across the globe. It did not restrict itself to Europe, and variants of disco music were introduced in America, Asia and Africa at the same time. Even today, people love to listen to disco music and many people maintain large libraries of music from the 70s.

Our site lists resources and ideas for 70s parties, whether that be a nostalgia party or simply those today wanting to recreate a decade that carried great influence.

90s fancy dress costumes

At the start of the 90s club-goers were gathering in places that were not mainstream.
Aircraft hangers and large fields were typical venues and attendances for raves, and they grew to as much as 20,000 people.
All that separated society in terms of political or football affiliations, were put aside in this new culture.

The fashion icon was Kate Moss.
Getting to know her personality was more interesting than the clothes she wore and perhaps was what helped propel
her to iconic status, something she still enjoys today.

In the States fashion brands were using early stars such as Mark Walberg to sell their underwear.
This was the start of movie driven promotions using personalities.

With so much to choose from it is not surprising that the fancy dress sector did very well .There was a richness of new trends such as overalls with straps down, roller blades and associated t/shirt and shorts, bleached hair and pants with 1 trouser log rolled up.

One of the biggest groups of the time were the spice girls. So many in the fashion industry today recall the influence they had on the fashion scene.
Parents would forbid certain garments paricularly dangerously uncomfortable shoes which led to all sorts of foot injuries. Emma Bunton’s broken ankle and
high heels which allegedly caused Victoria Beckam’s foot deformity, spring to mind.

The Spice Girls were a major sensation and had no compunction about using provocative fashion to enhance their visibility on the pop and fashion scene.

As is well known now , those early days had a big impact on the career of Victoria Beckham today in the world of fashion, where she is now established as a well-known brand.

Food Menus for Disco Parties

70s Themed Menu Ideas

If you are planning a themed party, you have to go all out. This includes the menu. The following list includes some of the most popular foods from the 70s that guests are sure to love today.
Anything in a Jello mold. During the 70s, Jello molds were all the rage. Seriously, it was not a party without one, so be sure to have one at your party.


Fondue became popular in the 70s, so this is a great option. You can cook some spicy chicken, teriyaki, or Mexican food and serve it with an array of cheese fondues. Not only do the pots act as serving ware, but they can also be used as a centerpiece. To make sure your guests are interacting with each other, put a different type of fondue on each table. Don’t forget about serving chocolate fondue for a delicious dessert.

Necco Wafers or Pop Tarts

Quiche: any flavor will do
Ambrosia Salad: This is a type of fruit salad that includes everything from fresh pineapple to maraschino cherries, strawberries, bananas, grapes, Mandarin oranges, mini marshmallows, coconut, and crushed pecans.
Tater tots: Yes, they are still loved today, but their deliciousness was first discovered in the 70s.
Bugles, Chex Mix, and Lays Chips (any flavor will do)
Ritz crackers topped with Cheese Whiz
Lipton Onion Dip (to go with the Lays potato chips)

Pigs in a Blanket

Meatballs topped with a jelly or jam sauce
Rumaki: Technically an appetizer that consists of water chestnuts and broiled, bacon wrapped marinated chicken livers, this was a favorite during the 70s. Stick a toothpick in them so they are easy to serve.
Hawaiian Punch and Tang were the drinks of choice during the 70s, so be sure to serve them at your party.
For a more mature party, serve Sangria, Harvey Wallbangers, and Cold Duck Champagne.

Just as you would at pretty much any party, opt for buffets filled with finger foods. This gives your guests the opportunity to eat as they mingle and dance.
