Greatest Songs of the 70s
The Top Ten
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.
Odd how this was voted best song of all time but only 5th in the 70's
The greateast song ever written. Full stop.
Well deserved place on number one.V 23 Comments
I really can't belive that led zeppelin is not no. 1 on any list - mateipal
The first song I started to learn on guitar. - thomasnirvanastroud
I'ts a lot better than dancing queen and all the other songs that have a higher spot on this and I don't think this should be number 4 it's least it could be in is 2!
Maybe number 1 : /V 38 Comments
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'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
This song is truly remarkable, at least for 1970s song. Not only that, this is also one of ABBA's most remarkable song and its ABBA trademark song. I never get bored with this song, and I just love to listen it over and over again. Plus, all the members looked pretty good on their costumes.
I LOVE ABBA! This was like the most popular in the dayV 22 Comments
Why isn't this in the top 10...ACTUALLY THE TOP 5?!?!? I love this song so much!
Great song. Great vocals good guitar riff
This song has to be at no. 1, no doubt. This list disappoints me. Dancing Queen ahead of bohemian rhapsody, stairway, imagine and hotel California
If you have'nt heard this song, you haven't lived
Top ten for sure are you kidding? 21?
One of the most iconic songs the decade ever produced. Has to be at least top 3!V 7 Comments
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!
Free bird by skynyrd is the best ever
Song has a very great story and really picks up the pace at the end.V 2 Comments
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 fam
Come on This is what the 70s was all about. This whole song summarizes the world back in the 60s, and 70s.
How is Imagine not number 1?! ABBA is terrible and they shouldn't even be in the top ten. Imagine is the greatest. The end. John Lennon will always be the best.
Hi, let's talk about ABBA. ABBA made funky beats and rhythms in their songs, but also made inspiring, emotional songs. Music lovers love inspiring and funky songs. Therefore your argument is invalid. - MontyPython
2 Heart songs beat Imagine and Hotel California? That's cringe-worthy. - therootbeer
Definitely my all time 2nd favorite song. - IcantbelieveitsnotbutterV 11 Comments
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?
The best riff that Clapton & Allman ever put to tape. - Toraqi
The last part of this song, the instrumental, is surreal.
I forget about everything when I listen to this song. Truly one of the greatest songs ever
I don't think anyone can deny that this is the best song!V 2 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 brilliant
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
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 Comments
Led Zeppelin defines the 70s rock music.
One of the BEST rock songs of the 70's. This song is simply mesmerising
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 70
This is the most 70s song, no discussion.V 6 Comments
This is the greatest 😍
Makes me want to go fishing.
Black Sabbath are the king of the rock and roll.
I think their music are forever.
I thought this was 80s
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 higherV 1 Comment
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 heaven
Best song of the 70's. I don't have to say another word.
For the 70s this song was pretty epic.
We took an L this should be higherV 2 Comments
Great song but Renegade by Styx is better.
This song should be higher up there in the list I love this song
Probably the most famous riff ever, it's a fantastic song that should be in top 5.
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
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.
How can you possibly beat Bowie? It doesn't make much sense to me. - Beatlesboy9V 1 Comment
The best song of all time
One of the greatest songs ever - Sincerity
Best dad chiller
Best sad chillerV 1 Comment
Bye bye this American pie
HOW is this song all the way back here?
Elton John should be all over this list!
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.
AMAZING!V 3 Comments
Killer guitar solo!
"Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way"
Time is one of the most meaningful songs I've ever listen to. The song has a very deep message. That eventually you'll run out of time. This song deserves to be in the top 10.
This song has so much meaning behind it. The song shares a very deep message. That eventually we will all run out time.
This song inst just one of the best songs of the 70's, its one of the best songs EVER. This definitively deserves to be in the top 5!
And then one day you find.. ten years have got behind you.. no one told you when to run.. you missed the starting gun!
And you people missed that "Vote" little button on the right of the song's title.
Time is just TIMELESS! - mba
