Here’s my evidence:
- On Tuesday, Van Halen releases a new album. (Its first album VH1 came out in 1977)
- On Friday, Peter Frampton comes to the Palace Theatre in Albany to play Frampton Comes Alive (from 1976) plus other songs.
- Also on Friday, Star Wars Episode I (the “first” Star Wars, as confused young people who weren’t alive in the 1977 when the real first Star Wars came out, even though it was called “Episode IV”) returns to the silver screen in 3-D.
Now all we need is some new Donna Summer songs in the boom box, and the Pittsburgh Pirates in contention for the World Series.
Let’s not forget it’s the 35th Anniversary of Saturday Night Fever.
