Damn, I remember all those songs very well, I too enjoyed them and all Disco songs in the 70's, it was just pure fun times (all of it).

I was in Saint Vincents Home for Boys in NYC when most of those songs hit the streets, danced and sung many of them myself (when hitting the beer) :-)

Good pick (all of them) then again, there were so many I loved back then too, Rock and Motown, I guess that made me weird, I never liked Country back then (still dont, well, not most of them anyway)...
More than likely have "been there and done that at some point", it sure keeps you young if done correctly

My favorite back seat song
THIS GUY'S IN LOVE WITH YOU

Always let the song talk for you, never say the L word yourself... :whistle:

14.

I think I'm the youngest so far.

I'm in High School, Airman for the AFJROTC, and former Flight Commander.

Going to Embry-Riddle or possibly the Academy.

Don't you Viper Drivers drop a JDAM on my house, but I'm a Strike Eagle person.

Couldn't decide between the Viper or a Strike Eagle.

See, air superiority fighters won't be getting much action unless we get into a war with China or Russia anytime soon.

Vipers drop bombs on real targets everyday, and so do Strike Eagles. Raptors haven't been deployed into combat yet, the Navy dosen't have the planes the Air Force have (not to mention I'm an Air Force brat, frickin' swabbies :wink: ), the Eagle is kinda dangerous at the moment (recent grounding for normal airframes), and the -35 ain't here yet.

So that leaves me with the Viper, the Strike Eagle, and the A-10.

Viper is a true dogfighter. Kinda small, less range, but awesome plane. The A-10 may be slow, but it's infantry's best friends (besides Apaches/Cobras), and the Avenger cannon is AWESOME, and the Strike Eagle is still the beautiful Eagle, just with air-to-ground capabilites.

I noticed that my favorite WWII fighter was the P-38. I noticed I always had a liking for the somewhat bigger fighters/planes (ain't flying no C-5, though, WAAAY too big). If I was Navy, it'd be the Tomcat, hands down, if the were still in service.

A moment of silence for the death of the Grumman F-14 Tomcat. :cry:

Plus, my dad always wanted to be an Eagle driver (instead went as Civil Engineer; his scholarship sponser went bankrupt, therefore couldn't be an officer), and I guess if he can't live his dream, I can live both of ours.

So, that's my story. That was a mouthful :D

Figured this would be a good place for my first post!

I'm a late model "62"- just turned 45.

And for the record, the best Jimi Hendrix song was a Bob Dylan cover...
