Sayings from the ’70s

The other day, our daughter need some saying from the ’70s for a school assignment. My wife found a list online and here are some I remember. If you grew up in the ’70s, they’ll put a smile on your face.


Can you dig it?

Catch my drift?

Catch you on the flip side.


Don’t give me that jive.

Dream on!


Far out!

Foxy mama!


Gag me with a spoon!

Gimme some skin.

Good night, John boy.

He’s such a wackoid!

Here’s the skinny…

Keep on truckin’.

Let’s blow this taco stand!

Let’s book it out of here.

May the force be with you.

Mellow out!

Outta sight!

Pop a wheelie.


Say what?

Slam dunk.


To the max!




What’s happening?

Do you remember any ’70s slang that you’d like to add?

    Thanks, Blast from the Past. I remember that one now. I added it to the list. Keep it up.
