Greatest Songs of the 70s

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Dance the Night Away - Van Halen
62 Life On Mars? - David Bowie

I'm shocked this song has already been added to this list. It is absolutely brilliant and truly Bowie at his best.

Really... Can't belive its this Low on this list... THE song of the Seventies... Along with Heroes, Changes, Ziggy Stardust, Time, Rebel Rebel, Sound and Vision, Word on A Wing, Fame... Oops... The list is a never ending one...

HOW is this song all the way back here?

Classic song from a classic band. It's been covered by a lot of people from (ech! ) Bon Jovi to (ugh! ) Lindsey Lohan. Now that tells you the song's appeal. - FearlessFreep

Love this song. Reminds me of when I was dating my husband.

73 A Horse with No Name - America

One of the most underrated bands ever!

Magical song. Never get tired of it.

74 Ben - Michael Jackson

Michael sang this song as just a very young boy to perfection. He already had the depth and emotional voice of a mature adult. he put everything he had even then into his music. A genius musical prophet in training... xo - love4mjj

Ben, the two of us need look no more... beautiful song sung by a beautiful person-- RIP Michael I love you!

A little boy singing from the buttom of his heart, full of hope and with a huge talent! - Laryssa

75 Landslide - Fleetwood Mac
76 Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen

Very great song. Over shadowed by many of his other songs. The softness of this one compared to many of his others makes this song unique and great

Amazing and beautifully written song. This should be up in the top 10 t least.

77 Live and Let Die - Wings
78 Rocket Man - Elton John
79 Thrasher - Neil Young
80 Peace of Mind - Boston
