A modern day Rip van Winkle
Suppose in this fantasy world I'm creating, someone fell asleep in 1970, and didn't wake up until January 20, 2009, a full 39 years of lost time.

After reading key stories and headlines, and catching up on the news and historical events, it becomes time to teach this person about the REAL things in life he needs to learn about--entertainment and the arts.

What bands or singers should he become acquainted with?

What artists should he be aware of?

What TV shows would you want him to watch or tell him abour?

What movies should be be familiar with?

Your top fifteen, please--combined, not individually. It would take forever to do separate lists!!

I'm afraid my own list would not be as liberal as it should be. My own suggestions are:


1. Star Wars (and sequels)
2. John Denver
3. Star Trek (and sequels)
4. The Godfather
5. All in the Family
6. Alan Parsons Project
7. Harry Potter
8. Oprah Winfrey
9. Michael Jackson (for better and worst!)
10. Madonna
11. Raiders of the Lost Ark (and sequels)
12. Footloose
13. Stephen King
14. E.T.
15. adult cartoons

So tell me--what would--could--you add to his education that happened AFTER 1970 in entertainment?
