Greatest Songs of the 70s

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Dream On - Aerosmith

Why isn't this in the top 10...ACTUALLY THE TOP 5?!?!? I love this song so much!

22War 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

23Beyond the Realms of Death - Judas Priest
24Surrender - Cheap TrickV1 Comment
25Stargazer - Rainbow
26I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor
27American Pie - Don McLean
28Take It Easy - Eagles
29Smoke On the Water - Deep Purple
30Born 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.

31(Don't Fear) The Reaper - Blue Oyster CultV2 Comments
32Come Sail Away - Styx

Great song but Renegade by Styx is better.

33Changes - David Bowie

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

34Keep Yourself Alive - Queen
35Beast of Burden - Rolling Stones
36Tiny Dancer - Elton John

Elton John should be all over this list!

37Highway Star - Deep Purple
38Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

87?! I think this is why he screamed at the end of the song, IT REVOLUTIONIZED ROCK. VOTE HERE!

39Runnin' With the Devil - Van Halen
40Piano Man - Billy Joel

Why is this not in the top ten? OH my gosh, so much emotion behind it... The piano is so amazing that it feels like its new every time.

This is one of my favorite songs and it really got me into 70s music. - gamingfoeealzs

The 70s saw so many great hits, but this is easily one of the most memorable, recognizable songs.
I'm amazed it's so low on the list. It's powerfully emotional and should be at least in the top 20.
