Greatest Songs of the 70s
The Top Ten
Bohemian Rhapsody is the best song throughout the whole intire Universe!
ABBA! What is the world coming to! In the top ten list for greatest songs ever, this song is #1 (rightfully so) so I ask you this: how is it that Dancing Queen is better on this list? Bohemian Rhapsody is truly a masterpiece and we should say a great 'thank you' to Freddie Mercury.
Queen is the most talented band that I have personally ever listened to. This and Killer Queen are the best songs ever!

Better than bo-rap, only just
Best song of the 70s

I'm in a very tough part of my life. I'm young and my parents got divorced recently. However, this song has brought happy tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. And when I hear it, whether at the YMCA, on the radio, or at a party, my heart flutters and I can't help sing (and dance! ) to my heart's content. Recently, I asked a bunch of students who go to my school to see if they listen to any 70's or 80's music. You'd be surprised how few actually enjoy it. ABBA is truly inspiring. Especially when you read up more on them. I love to just sit down and continuously sing the song over again (even though I stink at singing! ) I can't relate to so many people's opinions about this song. It's just the best. It deserves first. #LongLiveABBA
Abba (at least in the United States) was one of the most underrated groups ever. The amazing vocal talent of the 2 girls as well as the nearly unrivaled production quality is extremely difficult to match. To this day, ABBA remains one of the all time most successful pop bands, behind Elvis and The Beatles. I can't think of too many bands from the 60s or 70s that are still popular 30 years after they broke up!
I LOVE ABBA! This was like the most popular in the dayV 24 CommentsUListen to Sample
Not just 70s...greatest ballad ever.
This song has to be above Dancing Queen its more iconic for sure. Don't know about Bohemian Rhapsody though
One of the most iconic songs the decade ever produced. Has to be at least top 3!
This song has to be at no. 1, no doubt. This list disappoints me. Dancing Queen ahead of bohemian rhapsody, stairway, imagine and hotel CaliforniaV 10 CommentsUListen to Sample
Great song. Great vocals good guitar riff
Actually, I like Sweet Emotion but it was way down at 60. I mentioned it up here, to get it some needed attention. Aerosmith has had so many great songs, you can’t really go wrong with any of them.
Why isn't this in the top 10...ACTUALLY THE TOP 5?!?!? I love this song so much!UListen to Sample
How is this not at least number 2. Imagine is amazing and so is John Lennon
How in the hell would a song like this not be at number 2, if not 1? Bohemian Rhapsody, I can definitely deal with beating this song, but Stairway to Heaven should be at LEAST a close third, Dancing Queen and Dream On didn’t make the 70s for the most of us. - aceboogieog
This should be no. 1
Come on This is what the 70s was all about. This whole song summarizes the world back in the 60s, and 70s.V 14 CommentsUListen to Sample
Makes me want to go fishing.
Great songUListen to Sample
Song has a very great story and really picks up the pace at the end.
Free bird by skynyrd is the best ever
Most impessive and greatest song my lynyrd skynyrd I know. Very great and has a very meaningful story to it and I believe this should be at least in the top 20 by far. There should be almost doubt against that.
Following them since the early 70's - still rock the house!V 2 CommentsUListen to Sample
I'd vote for Stairway To Heaven but seeing Comfortably Numb only at 15 is really disappointing. It should at least be in the top 15.
Best song ever
10? Nah fam number 3 famUListen to Sample
The Bee Gees were NOT born in Australia. They were born in the UK, came with their parents to Australia for a few years and then moved back to the UK.
This is a great song, the beegees are from straya!
I don't care what anyone says about this band because this song is my favorite song and it was my grandmas because she had a crush on barry gibb
I think that's the best song 70V 7 Comments
Both albums are classics
Just brilliant, from Longing for Syd Barrett to 9/11 to the Japanese sunami - absolutely timeless
The best song of the year...
This song is brilliantV 1 CommentUListen to Sample
I AM IRON MAN
dun duhn dundun dun, dun nu dun nu dun nu ne ne ney
(if you heard the iron man riff, then you are awesome) - HighSkoolArtist
This song is badass along with Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple
It was between this and Bohemian Rhapsody, although they are all great songs. - michaelhughes
Dude, this is an album pic from Nazareth, not black sabbathV 3 CommentsUListen to Sample
This Should Be In The Top 10
C'mon These Guys Rock - rocker1796
These song appeared in 79
It canceled all the efforts in 70s
Amazingly Amazing! - shatti
Best song at the road
Best song at the morning
Best song at the night
Best at afternoon,
While you eat
While you walk, run, juggle, die, born
Take a shower
The best song of all time
Moves your soul
Just short of perfection.
I don't think anyone can deny that this is the best song!
The best riff that Clapton & Allman ever put to tape. - Toraqi
The last part of this song, the instrumental, is surreal.V 3 CommentsUListen to Sample
I regret for voting for it on the 60s list. Also this song is amazing! - Userguy44
55?! What the hell?! This song is one of the best songs of all time! It's my fourth favorite song! Sure, Won't Get Fooled Again is my favorite song, but this DOES NOT deserve to be in 55th place! The Who is way too underrated... - MontyPython
Seriously? This song should be in the top ten at least! This song is epic. The Who is awesome!
LOVE it but where is ELO?UListen to Sample
Black Sabbath are the king of the rock and roll.
I think their music are forever.
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
What? This song is awesome. Should be among the top ten.V 1 CommentUListen to Sample
Great song but Renegade by Styx is better.
This song should be higher up there in the list I love this songUListen to Sample

One of the greatest songs ever - SincerityUListen to Sample
This is REAL ROCK!
Roger and Nancy at their Guitar best. A blend of electric and acoustic that stands the test of time. These two were as explosive as the cosmic Big Bang.. Somehow the sum is much greater than the sum of the parts. Like chocolate and peanut butter, Roger and Nancy create something incredible delicious to the ear and other senses. It's shame that they weren't able to remain the partners in music they once were. Maybe someday they both will realize what an impact they "together" had on music.
To these ears, Heart's Wilson sisters, and their amazing band, picked up where Janis Joplin and Linda Ronstadt left off. As a teenaged male in the mid to late 70s, I had never heard female singers with such swagger. They weren't coy about sex, and they weren't afraid to rail against sexual exploitation. I think their impact was as liberating for males as it was for females.
Love this song so much n will foreverUListen to Sample
Elton John should be all over this list!UListen to Sample
So great it appears on this list twice.
This is the greatest 😍UListen to Sample
My first concert. 1979
I thought this was 80sUListen to Sample
I think it should be very high on the list, great song and music
To have Abba # 3 and this at 29 is a insult and sickens me
Because it's the Best song of the seventies. Top 5 easy. 30 is a insult to there Legacy
What are you talking about? This is an amazing song. Its almost hypnotic and you can't change it while listening to it? At least I can't. Best after Stairway To heavenV 5 CommentsUListen to Sample
And the live Made in Japan version is even more powerful. Also be sure to check out the extended Roger Glover remix.
Probably the most famous riff ever, it's a fantastic song that should be in top 5.UListen to Sample
It's just too good, must be in the top 10 at least.
Best song ever
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. - gamingfoeealzsV 5 CommentsUListen to Sample
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.UListen to Sample
Led Zeppelin defines the 70s rock music.
One of the BEST rock songs of the 70's. This song is simply mesmerisingUListen to Sample
This was one of my favorite songs. I don't understand why its not at least on top 10 I think this song is a song that we can call: One of the very best.
This is arguably the most iconic song of all time. And that brings the question up : WHY IN THE GOOD NAME OF GOD IS THIS SONG AT 57?
Brian mai is a genius for making this
Should be higher😄💖
Great romantic song, wonderful solo by peter criss the drummer.UListen to Sample
How can you possibly beat Bowie? It doesn't make much sense to me. - Beatlesboy9

HOW is this song all the way back here?UListen to Sample
Killer guitar solo!UListen to Sample
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
