Best Pop Artist of the '70s


The Top TenXW


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 ruled pop music in the 70s. I begged my mom to get their "Voulez-Vous" album on 8-track from Columbia House 8-track Club when I was a kid (she did). There are a lot of good bands on this list, but many, like the Eagles whom I like, wouldn't be considered pop. - Blue_Devereaux

They made countless hits and fall close behind the Beatles, Michael Jackson, etc.

7Stevie Wonder
8Helen 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?

Love me some Helen Reddy!

10The Cure

The Contenders

11Donna Summer
12Elton 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.

Been around for years. Id pay to see his concert anyday.
