Tiny Dancer

I've been listening to the 70's satellite radio channel on the TV lately and I forgot how much I love some of the music from the 70's. True, I was a wee tyke back then, but I have fond memories of wearing a tube top, short shorts, knee high socks (you know, with the stripes!) and being really tan because I was outside all day. Oh and I loved to roller skate around my back yard pretending I was a Solid Gold dancer on roller skates. I listened to music on a little radio in my room or my parents would blast their 8 tracks thru the house. This was a simpler time when kids were able to wander and play with no shoes on and we didn't worry about things so much.

Check out this clip of Elton John's Tiny Dancer from the movie Almost Famous. For some reason this scene and song put together really get to me.

Definitely glad I grew up during those times! Hopefully I can help create a little of that for my boys :)

Loved Solid Gold!
My kids might be little, but we have tons of barefoot innocent fun! I hope we can keep it up for years.
