Greatest Songs of the 70s

The Contenders: Page 2

21 War Pigs - Black Sabbath

ABBA for the win, but they don't need any votes from me to stay first. War Pigs is the best heavy metal song ever and deserves to be on this list

22 London Calling - The Clash London Calling - The Clash V 1 Comment
23 Surrender - Cheap Trick Surrender - Cheap Trick V 1 Comment
24 More Than a Feeling - Boston More Than a Feeling - Boston

I think most Boston songs are completely underrated. Boston had their own unique sound that is impossible to recreate. This song is a perfect example of pure genius. It's a rock song, its a love song, its just amazing. Better than anything I've ever heard.

Interestingly, Boston said they "borrowed" the melody for this song from "Louie, Louie." If you listen for it, it's there. And who in their life hasn't had that seems-so-right person just slip away?

Guys r you actually kidding heart do not deserve to be in the top tens, come on look at list

Needs to be higher

25 Stargazer - Rainbow Stargazer - Rainbow
26 Take It Easy - Eagles Take It Easy - Eagles
27 I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor
28 Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen Born to Run - Bruce Springsteen

This is my second favorite song ever written and my favorite album ever recorded. Everyone should help by voting to bring this song to the top 5, and also, Thunder Road, Jungleland, and Backstreets belong on this list. The fact that there are ZERO Bruce Springsteen songs here makes me want to cry. Vote for these songs, and God bless you.

This is one of the greatest rock songs ever!

This song is the definitive song of any generation.

29 Smoke On the Water - Deep Purple Smoke On the Water - Deep Purple
30 Changes - David Bowie Changes - David Bowie

How can you possibly beat Bowie? It doesn't make much sense to me. - Beatlesboy9

Elton John should be all over this list!

36 Highway Star - Deep Purple Highway Star - Deep Purple
37 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

39 Vienna - Billy Joel Vienna - Billy Joel
40 Starman - David Bowie Starman - David Bowie
