Top Ten 70s and 80s Soft Rock Classics

Don't know if this will get approved, but here goes, some of my favorite 70's and 70's soft rock favorites. Add yours

The Top Ten

1 If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot Cover Art

I'm glad to see this up towards the top. Gordon, in my opinion, is one of the greatest songwriters that ever lived. - Gg2000

It seems fitting to add here that great minds think alike. I also added both of those songs...so, no, of course I don't mind one bit that you did as well. - Britgirl

I couldn't resist... - Britgirl

2 Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel Bridge Over Troubled Water - Simon & Garfunkel Cover Art

Really wish I could add Homeward Bound by these but being a 60s song, it kind of defeats the object somewhat. Still Bridge Over Troubled Waters in such a lovely song. It's nice to see it here. - Britgirl

Greatest of all time.

3 Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty Baker Street - Gerry Rafferty Cover Art
4 Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters - Elton John Mona Lisas and Mad Hatters - Elton John Cover Art
5 Without You - Harry Nilsson Without You - Harry Nilsson Cover Art
6 Don't Stop - Fleetwood Mac Don't Stop - Fleetwood Mac Cover Art
7 Magnet and Steel - Walter Egan Magnet and Steel - Walter Egan Cover Art
8 Drift Away - Dobie Gray Drift Away - Dobie Gray Cover Art
9 Fooled Around and Fell In Love - Elvin Bishop Fooled Around and Fell In Love - Elvin Bishop Cover Art

I'm so happy to see this here! I've loved this song for such a long time. I love the simplicity and gentleness of it. I was torn for a second between this and If You Could Read My Mind (which has received many of my votes) so for a change, this lovely song gets my vote. Great choice. Great list. - Britgirl

10 Midnight Confessions - Grass Roots

The Contenders

11 Suspicious Minds - Elvis Presley Suspicious Minds - Elvis Presley Cover Art
12 Fall at Your Feet - Crowded House Fall at Your Feet - Crowded House Cover Art

Really romantic song. - truckturner

13 Margarita - Marc Jordan Margarita - Marc Jordan Cover Art

Don't have a yacht then just lay back and imagine. Lick the salt and chill!

Cool song!

14 Greg Guidry - Goin' Down

Hey this is a rare classic you don't hear much of anymore from 82. I also like Bill LaBounty "Dream On" and "Livin' It Up" from his underrated self titled album from 82 also. It's good to be reminded of even the rarest gems.

15 No One Is To Blame - Howard Jones No One Is To Blame - Howard Jones Cover Art
16 I'm Not in Love - 10cc I'm Not in Love - 10cc Cover Art
17 Listen to What the Man Said - Wings Listen to What the Man Said - Wings Cover Art
18 Make It with You - Bread Make It with You - Bread Cover Art
19 Midnight Rider - The Allman Brothers Band Midnight Rider - The Allman Brothers Band Cover Art

Surprised that this wasn't added sooner. It was released in '71, so it just fits this list rather nicely. And it's also really good. - Britgirl

20 December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night) - Four Seasons December, 1963 (Oh, What a Night) - Four Seasons Cover Art
21 Heart of Gold - Neil Young Heart of Gold - Neil Young Cover Art
