Popular Lists Of Everything From The Groovy Era

The "best of" everything from the 1970s, 1960s. Or the "worst," depending on the article. Top 10s, Top 100s, and curated lists of all of just about anything you can think of are an internet currency, and we'd like to think ours are the best versions of that kind of content for that topic. So if you wanted to know what anybody from the "Groovy Era" that's still touring is playing live, you could find that list here (i.e. The 24 Songs Elton John Will Play On His Farewell Tour). Memorabilia, lists of singers, cultural differences between the ra and now, cartoons from the '50s and '60s, Batman villains, and honestly anything you can think of. These are quick, fun, and easy to navigate because all the lists have items on them, so you can pick and choose what to read instead of combing through an entire narrative. So these popular lists of everything from the "Groovy Era" can not only be great time-wasters, but will make you more fun at parties, and generally more interesting because you'll eventually have tiny little facts and trivia about almost anything you can think of. If we're missing any important top 10s, lists, or countdowns, please hit us up on Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, or Twitter.✌️
