Greatest Songs of the 70s

The Contenders: Page 3

41 Piano Man - Billy Joel

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.

42 We Will Rock You - Queen

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?

43 I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor

HOW is this song all the way back here?

44 American Pie - Don McLean

Bye bye this American pie

45 My Sharona - The Knack
46 Beast of Burden - Rolling Stones
47 Tiny Dancer - Elton John

Elton John should be all over this list!

48 Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who

87?! I think this is why he screamed at the end of the song, IT REVOLUTIONIZED ROCK. VOTE HERE!

49 Night Fever - Bee Gees
50 Misty Mountain Hop - Led Zeppelin
51 Vienna - Billy Joel
52 Starman - David Bowie
53 Your Song - Elton John
54 Fire and Rain - James Taylor
55 Tonight's the Night - Rod Stewart
56 Bat Out of Hell - Meat Loaf
57 T.N.T. - AC/DC
58 Vincent (Starry, Starry Night) - Don McLean

One of the greatest song writers who ever existed.
One of the most inspirational songs.
This song shows us that although vincent suffered with mental illness we must not remember this in his legacy but look at the beauty he created even though he suffered with an illness. He was a misunderstood soul who believed that living in this world was no longer worth it. He must respect and honor his beauty. We thank Don McLean for giving us clear insight into the life of this troubled soul.

59 From Now On - Supertramp

There are a lot of Supertramp songs so much better than this one...!

60 Shadow Dancing - Andy Gibb
