Worst '70s Songs

The Contenders: Page 2XW

21Lovin' You - Minnie Riperton

Her voice is one of the most annoying voices I've ever heard. It's like one of the squeakers from Xbox Live decided to write a terrible love song.

It was a toss-up between this one and Afternoon Delight. This song only served to add more torment to my younger years.

22It Started With a Kiss - Hot Chocolate

This song is from the 80's, NOT 70's. So it doesn't count. And in my opinion, I think this is actually a decent song.

23Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
24Layla - Derek & The Dominos
25Barracuda - Heart

The Heart that deserves to get ragged on more is the incarnation where Ann Wilson gained weight like a madman and they released garbage like "All I Wanna Do is Make Love to You". That, and the one that gave us "This Man is Mine", a forgotten atrocity of the '80s.

This song is good. Just because a singer is fat doesn't mean they are bad. I would rather take this over the overrated (but still good) hits from Lyrnyrd Skynyrd and Queen. - Swellow

Quite a few heart songs in here,
GOOD, they suck more than a giant vacuum cleaner - GlonnAtronnAdonnAdict

26Hotel California - The Eagles

Wait... this list is the worst of the 70s, right? If this is the worst of the 70s, than whoever made this list is a retard. This is a kick ass song. If you're gonna make a list of the worst of the 70s, actually put the worst of the 70s on here.

Actually this song doesn't kick ass at all. It's more like a limp slap in the face with a wet lettuce.

Even if this song is overplayed by now does not make it a worst song of the 70's. Maybe on an overplayed list of songs. If they play it so much now in this decade it in no way can one of the worst or it would have fallen by the wayside by now. If you don't want to hear it change stations. It will always be excellent for future generations to come! Come to grips with it!

27I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

What is wrong with you people? Hotel California, Sweet Home Alabama, I Shot the Sheriff and Iron Man should be no where near this list you idiots!

28Kick It Out - Heart
29Crazy On You - Heart

What? Hello, why is this here? Little children what do they know about anything 70's anyway!

30War Pigs - Black SabbathV2 Comments
31Dancin' Fool - Frank Zappa
32My Sharona - The Knack

The true reason disco finally died. Thanks, Knack.

33Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? - Rod Stewart

I don't know This Song But I Just Needed To Get My Opinion Out There That Most Of These Songs Are Really Great

Rod Stewart betrayed us all. What the hell happened to "Maggie May"?

34When You're In Love With a Beautiful Woman - Dr. Hook
35I Shot the Sheriff - Eric Clapton

Tepid, cringe-inducing cover of a great reggae song. Man, I've never understood Clapton. The guy is completely lacking in soul. This is an insult to good music.

36Pirate Ships - Wendy Waldman
37Poetry Man - Phoebe Snow

Is someone nuts! Who put this here? You certainly are no poet, that's for sure, or a song writer.

38Love is the Answer - Utopia
39Walk This Way - Aerosmith
40Dog and Butterfly - Heart

Excuse me! This soft rock song from this group is much, much, better than anything even heard past the 90's and during the 70's this group had many staple songs for us in the 70's. Who put them and any of their songs on this list? This list is in poor taste. Eagles, Black Sabbath, Blondie, Aerosmith, etc. Disgraceful!
