Best Pop Artist of the '70s

The Top TenXW

1ABBA

ABBA is by far the best pop group of the 70's. With #1 hits like Waterloo, SOS, Mamma Mia, Fernando, Dancing Queen, Knowing Me Knowing You, Money Money Money, Chiqutita, an Gimme Gimme Gimme becoming some of the greatest pop songs of all time. - MGBSG1

Not a disco band as a lot of people think - sold almost 1/2 Billion record units. Only The Beatles, Elvis, and Michael Jackson have sold more units than this band. - ekos

ABBA is by far the best. Michael Jackson is more pop/disco, Elvis, Rock and Roll so that leaves only the Beatles...

I love the group

9Helen Reddy

Helen Reddy has maintained the most fantastic voice through the 70's, 80's, 90's into the 21st. Century, whether she is singing songs or motivationally speaking. Her music with its messages has brought millions of women out of darkness, into the light of knowing they are someone special and have purpose and values to contribute to everyone's lives.

Since Helen Reddy IS the "Queen of 70s Pop" what more can one say?

10Elton John

This is disgusting. Elton John, not even top ten? He album sales during the 70's were only second to Elvis Presley, and his talent still draws massive crowds today, even at age 65. Elton defines the 70's perfectly as the consummate pop-star, he should recieve your vote.

How is he not number 1? Sir Elton defined 70s radio, producing hit after hit! Albums like Tumbleweed Connection, Madman Axroos the Water, Honky Chateau, Don't Shoot Me, GYBR, Captain Fantastic, Caribou, and more...
Definitely one of the greatest musical acts in history, and surely THE greatest solo act in the 70s
