    • 10. Last Dance by Donna Summer
      What can I say? I love the 70's and this epitomizes the 1970's! This song is so much fun to sing when you're by yourself in your car - you can fool yourself into thinking you sound like her!
    • 9. Just The Way You Are by Billy Joel
      This was our wedding song! I adore Billy Joel and this isn't even his best work, but I have a huge soft spot for it nonetheless - for more reasons than the one given. (Love ya, Nocha RIP)
    • 8. Serpentine Fire by Earth, Wind & Fire
      If you've never heard this song before - by all means FIND it! What an awesomely talented band. They sound just as great now as they did then.
    • 7. Let Me Love You Tonight by Pure Prairie League
      Plain and simple - I JUST LOVE THIS SONG.
    • 6. Baby Come Back by Player
      Same reason as above. It takes me right back to a time and place. Great 70's song.
    • 5. Rock The Boat by The Hues Corporation
      I added this because it reminds me of summer and being a kid. I loved my childhood and music played a HUGE part in it.
    • 4. Roxanne by The Police
      I love The Police. Sting, Andy, and Stewart ruled!!! HELLO??? Reunion???
    • 3. Sultans Of Swing by Dire Straits
      All I can say is Mark Knoffler rules. He's truly one the best guitar players ever - extremely underrated. I can air guitar the hell out of this song! lol
    • 2. The Boys Are Back In Town by Thin Lizzy
      My husband rolls his eyes when this comes on the radio - but I love it and it is SO much fun to sing.
    • 1. Bell Bottom Blues by Derek & The Dominos
      Who does not LOVE Eric Clapton??? I absolutely cannot tire if him. This song is just beautiful.

    These are just songs I randomly pulled out of the air - there are SO, SO many more I could've added!!! I Love the 70's :)

      Great rock song; probably his best.
    • 4. Behind Blue Eyes by The Who
    • 3. Who Are You by The Who
      ThEEEE best band. The only reason they didn't get the #1 song is because all their good stuff was from the 60's.
    • 2. Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple
      Great song. That's it.
    • 1. Black Dog by Led Zeppellin
      Everyone likes 'Stairway To Heaven', but I think it's overplayed. But I've got to stay with Zeppelin.

    70's are good but the 60's are my forte.
