    • 10. Feel Like Makin' Love by Bad Company
      When I think about this song, I feel like makin' love.
    • 9. The Story Of The Hurricane by Bob Dylan
      Now that's the way to tell a story; awesome song! 8:31 long and never a dull moment.
    • 8. Do Ya Think I'm Sexy? by Rod Stewart
      Had to add a little disco; fun song.
    • 7. Riding The Storm Out by REO Speedwagon
      Awesome intro!
    • 6. Fat Bottom Girls by Queen
      What a cool song; big booty girls were even popular in the 70's. Queen only had about a hundred other good songs.
    • 5. Hot Blooded by Foreigner
      Foreigner rocked in the 70's.
    • 4. Hotel California by Eagles
      I could name about 10-15 good Eagles songs; this one is my fav though.
    • 3. More Than A Feeling by Boston
      Basically any Boston song is great, but this one really gets you movin'.
    • 2. Too Late, Feelin' That by Journey
      I honestly could make a top ten of Journey songs from the 70's... they just had better songs in the short term of 70's music with Perry and Rollie.
    • 1. Lovin', Touchin', Squeezin' by Journey
      Steve Perry is simply amazing. Now it's your turn to cry, na, na, na, na, na

    I could easily name about 200 favorite songs from the 70's... it's way too hard to narrow to 10. I just put some of my favs that most people didn't put on their lists. Everyone knows 'Stairway To Heaven' and Pink floyd are awesome... let's give a little credit to the other guys.

    • 10. Any Colour You Like by Pink Floyd
      Maybe it shouldn't be on this list, but I've been listening to it a lot lately. Really good instrumental song. Probably my favorite Pink Floyd song.
    • 9. Dy'er Ma'ker by Led Zeppelin
      Makes me feel so good.
    • 8. I Was Made For Loving You by KISS
      Best KISS song! This disco song really rocks.
    • 7. Whole Lotta Love by Led Zeppelin
      Oh yeah.
    • 6. All Along The Watchtower by Jimi Hendrix
      This cover by Jimi Hendrix of a song by Bob Dylan is really good and the guitar is absolutely incredible.
    • 5. Voodoo Chile by Jimi Hendrix
      Awesome guitar playing with cool effects.
    • 4. Let It Be by The Beatles
    • 3. Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin
      A really great and entertaining classic rock song.
    • 2. Stairway To Heaven by Led Zeppelin
      I can't make a list of top ten songs without putting this song on it. You probably understand why.
    • 1. Babe I'm Gonna Leave You by Led Zeppelin
      One of my favorite songs from my favorite band. Led Zeppelin is the best band of the 70's. This song is awesome. It begins with a slow and beautiful guitar melody and ends with the heavy guitar chords and the high-pitched shouting of Robert Plant. John Bonham's simple but efficient drumming makes the song even more incredible.

    My list could go on forever...I was born in 1989. My dad made me discover the music of the sixties and seventies and I just wish I could go back in time and live in those years that seem so great.

    • 10. Friends by Led Zeppelin
      Ah, Led Zeppelin (get used to them :))! I don't know what exactly I love about this song, but it's great. "I'm telling you now, the greatest thing you ever can do now, is trade a smile with someone who's blue now."
    • 9. Fortunate Son by Creedence Clearwater Revival
      Great song that is often misunderstood (it's not a patriotic song, people, it's an anti-war song!) Great song by the great band CCR!!
    • 8. Kashmir by Led Zeppelin
      Man, come on, awesome song, even if the riff is repetative, who cares, this song ROCKS!
    • 7. All Things Must Pass by George Harrison
      Such a sad song...but so good. I want this played at my funeral (nice thought, huh?)
    • 6. All Right Now by Free
      Awesome song, I love playing it while I'm driving with the windows down and radio full blast. Yes, I AM that cool! :P
    • 5. Peace Train by Cat Stevens
      This song is so uplifting, and Cat Stevens is so cool. Enough said.
    • 4. Immigrant Song by Led Zeppelin
      I have to sing along to this song every time I hear it, and let's not forget, scream out "AHahhhhhhhhhhhAH!"
    • 3. Imagine by John Lennon
      Awesome song, gives me the shivers every time I hear it. I love John Lennon, even though he's not my favorite Beatle (look at #7 to see who that is)
    • 2. Free Bird by Lynyrd Skynyrd
      Now, I don't care if you like Lynyrd Skynyrd or not, you HAVE to like this song, I mean come on, just listen to the guitar at the end!
    • 1. What Is Life by George Harrison
      This song makes me so happy, I can't even explain. It reminds me of a nice sunny day where the grass is so green and everyone is having fun. Yes, I imagine all that every time I listen to it.

    I wish I could put EVERYTHING from "Let It Be" on this list. I didn't put "Let It Be" on here because it wouldn't be fair to the rest of the songs on that album. Also, everything from Led Zeppelin (since I only included things from Led Zeppelin III), The Who, Ramones, Queen, Paul McCartney, Eric Clapton, The Stones, James many others....
