Top 10 Songs That Defined the 70sMontyPython
The Top Ten
From 1977 to the end of the decade, Disco in general, and the Bee Gees in particular were by far the most-played music.
Not as 70's-definting as many other songs on this list, BoRap barely reached the top 10, peaking at only #9 in 1976. It is mostly symbolic of the 70's for people who were not actually there.
Yikes, 3 pictures of John Travolta in the top 10.
Single released March 1970; album released May 1970; however the recording session itself did take place in 1969.
The very first "trance" song ever recorded.
Don's original worksheet and handwritten notes that he used to write this song back in 1971 just sold for $1.2 Million at auction.
"I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave th stream of warm impermanence.

They're quite aware of what they're going through."

Turn and face the strange. - PetSounds
Such a great dance tune that even people with no talent could dance to it.
John Denver's music defined "middle of the road", which is not a bad thing, most people liked it and many people loved it, plus it was played for most of the 70's on almost every radio station.
