Greatest Songs of the 70s

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Year of the Cat - Al Stewart V 1 Comment
62 Children of the Grave - Black Sabbath
63 Easy - The Commodores

Only song to be number one on R&B, Country and Pop chart at the same time.

64 Rocky Mountain High - John Denver
65 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?

66 I Want You to Want Me - Cheap Trick

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

Great song from a great album.

67 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...
