I usually do a Google image search of the year in question to find a picture to go at the top of the post. It’s an interesting exercise, bringing up a ragbag of magazine covers, film posters, logos from sporting events, cars and soft porn.
In this case, there were a few images accompanying a survey from a couple of years ago claiming that 1976 was the best time to be young. I’m not buying it, personally – I’m not finding a huge amount to get excited about musically – but then again, I wasn’t born. So what do I know?
