WHILE the sound of Led Zep­pelin may have you feel­ing a whole lotta love for the rock­ers, the sight of the hair­yarsed quar­tet will leave you dazed and con­fused.

But, thank­fully, the same can’t be said for pop’s sex­i­est songstress Katy Perry, 27.

Even if songs like Cal­i­for­nia Gurls and I Kissed a Girl don’t float your boat, mu­sic videos fea­tur­ing curvy Katy al­most burst­ing out of a bikini should do the trick. Be­cause of her alone, the mu­sic scene’s never been bet­ter than right now! THE 70s had a tough act to fol­low ar­riv­ing im­me­di­ately af­ter the fa­mously swing­ing decade that brought us the sex­ual rev­o­lu­tion, The Bea­tles and Twiggy.

And if you were born af­ter 1979 your knowl­edge of the disco decade is prob­a­bly based on blurry nights in Flares bars and your dad’s tales of the good old days.

But your old man’s not ly­ing – the 70s did pro­vide us with some ab­so­lute gems.

Whether it was the foot­ball skills and leg­endary off-field an­tics of Ge­orge Best, the mu­sic of David Bowie or the bouncy fun of a Space Hop­per, there was some­thing for ev­ery­one. In fact, his­to­rian Do­minic Sand­brook reck­ons the decade shaped the Bri­tain of to­day.

And his four-part se­ries The 70s, which kicked off on BBC2 on Mon­day, looks back at the decade and its last­ing legacy for to­day’s so­ci­ety.

But to help you de­cide just how hip the 70s re­ally were, we’ve com­pared the best the decade had to of­fer with what’s at our dis­posal to­day.

Here’s a look at the best babes, mu­sic, telly, fash­ion and films from the 70s and now.
