It’s all about the pursuit of romance (or a version of it) in these quintessential love songs of the 1970s. I can imagine couples on the dance floors proudly strutting their feathered hair and flared pants as these tunes warbled from the record players.
How Deep is Your Love by Bee Gees
This song is all about emotional intimacy between lovers. They want love and devotion, but they also request something more. They need a level of closeness that doesn’t allow secrets or inhibition.
Last Dance by Donna Summer
In this song, they aren’t looking for everlasting love. All the person is asking for right now is tonight. I can’t be sure that you’re the one for me / But all that I ask is that you dance with me.
Take a Chance on Me by ABBA
The catchy tune supports the breezy confidence of the lyrics. Sure, it’s unrequited love…for now. This person is telling their loved one to take their time, they aren’t going anywhere.
Looking for music that evoke the images of summer love? Listen to these songs!
