Writer's Block: It was a very good year

Which year would you consider the best of your life so far?

1972.  That was the year that I discovered the radio had more than just talk shows and big band music.  I discovered rock and roll, bubblegum and [aah!] disco.  I still think the music of that year was the best ever.  How can you top 'American Pie' by Don McLean?  
That was also the year that I went to my first concert.  The Osmond Brothers at the Canadian Exhibition up in Toronto.  My sister took me, and we sat so far up, the boys were only about an inch tall.  I still love them, and go to see Donny whenever he plays around Buffalo.  
I had a major crush on a boy, and I remember roller skating a couples dance with him.  Oh, heaven!  And at the end of the year, I got a kiss.  It wasn't my first kiss (That was when I was in 3rd grade, I grabbed Freddy and gave him a good one on a dare.  But, that's another story!), but it was good.  
That was the last year that I consider myself still a kid.  I went to the new high school the next year, away from all my grade school friends. Boy, did life change.
