Greatest Songs of the 70s

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Paranoid - Black Sabbath

Beautiful song!
Black Sabbath are the king of the rock and roll.
I think their music are forever.

22 Surrender - Cheap Trick

I thought this was 80s

23 Le Freak - Chic
24 Highway Star - Deep Purple
25 More Than a Feeling - Boston

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 higher

26 Kashmir - Led Zeppelin

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 higher

27 Another Brick In the Wall, Part 2 - Pink Floyd
28 Smoke on the Water - Deep Purple

Probably the most famous riff ever, it's a fantastic song that should be in top 5.

29 War 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

30 Time - Pink Floyd

"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

31 Take It Easy - Eagles
32 Born 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.

33 Changes - David Bowie

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