Top Ten Songs List by Mark Henwood
  • 10. Mi-sex, "But You Don't Care"
    Mi-Sex were one of my favourite bands to see live. R.I.P Steve Gilpin.
  • 9. Thin Lizzy, "The Boys Are Back In Town"
    A classic featuring the legendary twin guitar lead of Scott Gorham and Brian Robertson.
  • 8. Status Quo, "Down Down"
    Just crank the volume up to max and rock out!
  • 7. Pilot, "January"
    Don't ask me why! It's just a catchy tune-that's all!
  • 6. Steely Dan, "Deacon Blue"
    This is just a great song with great lyrics. Perfect with a candlelit dinner.
  • 5. Boston, "Peace Of Mind"
    Boston are one of my favourite bands ever-so picking a favourite was hard. If it was on a scale of votes this song came in at 10 and all the other songs by this great band came it at 9.99.
  • 4. Pink Floyd, "Time"
    Just turn out the lights, close your eyes and listen!
  • 3. Elton John, "Funeral For A Friend/love Lies Bleeding"
    There's not a bad song on Elton's Goodbye Yellow Brick road album, but this would be my pick. From the haunting start of Funeral through to the ripping guitar solo in Love Lies Bleeding this song is a John/Taupin masterpiece.
  • 2. Orleans, "Still The One"
    I picked this song because of the lyrics, as they describe the relationship between my wife and I just perfectly.
  • 1. Dan Hartman, "Instant Replay"
    The best party song ever. I just love its' jumpy, infectious beat. Take a look on YouTube. Dan and the others just have a great time!
How do you pick your top ten songs of the seventies? It's not easy. Personally, this list has taken me a long time to compile and I'll probably hear a song tomorrow and ask myself why I didn't put that in my top ten. In compiling my list I picked the songs that I could most listen to over and over and with the volume turned up.

Top Ten Songs List by Christopher
  • 10. Bruce Springsteen, "Born To Run"
    A classic that too many people forgot to include
  • 9. The Beatles, "Let it Be"
    It's a shame they had to break up but it had to happen at some point. P.S. thanks a lot Yoko...
  • 8. Wings, "Band On The Run"
    Paul sure didn't have any trouble topping the charts with or without the beatles.
  • 7. KISS, "Detroit Rock City"
    You wanted the best you got the best. The hottest band in the world... KISS
  • 6. Rod Stewart, "Maggie May"
    I don't even know why this song is so good. The lyrics are pretty lame but overall it's an amazing song.
  • 5. The Who, "Won't Get Fooled Again "
    The Who's best song without a doubt. I get excited every time it comes on the radio.
  • 4. Rush, "Working Man"
    The first time I ever heard this song I thought I was listening to Zeppelin. Working man has an amazing riff and solo. Classic.
  • 3. Neil Young, "Southern Man"
    This is the greatest song written by any Canadian artist. Not to mention the fact that it got Lynyrd Skynyrd pretty annoyed.
  • 2. Pink Floyd, "Shine On You Crazy Diamond"
    It's songs like these that make me listen to music in the first place. A beautiful tribute to a true friend. R.I.P. Syd
  • 1. Black Sabbath, "War Pigs"
    What? Did you expect Stairway to Heaven? Although Jimmy Page is my favourite guitarist, Ozzy Osbourne and Tony Iommi wrote too good a song to not be included on this list. I'll never stop listening to Sabbath, and will never get tired of this song.
Honourable Mentions include: Free Bird, Free Ride, Frankenstine, Imagine, Bohemian Rhapsody, Stairway To Heaven, Paranoid, The Song Remains the Same. IF FOR SOME REASON YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD SOME OF THE SONGS FEATURED ON THE LIST, FEEL FREE TO LOOK THEM UP. THEY WILL NOT DISAPOINT.

Top Ten Songs List by Dr. Wickes
  • 10. The Beatles, "Let It Be"
    I had a ton of choices for the 10th spot, however, the rule of music lists state that: If the Beatles had an album in that decade, you must list a song from said album on your list. Granted, Let It Be is a great song on its own and really wouldn't require any such rule to justify its spot in the top 10.
  • 9. Led Zeppelin, "Over the Hills and Far Away"
    Since I can't put side 2 of Physical Graffiti as one song, I choose to go with my 2nd favorite Zeppelin song. A great start, a powerful middle, and a hauntingly brilliant finish are all reason why this song deserves a spot on the top 10.
  • 8. Bob Marley, "No Woman, No Cry"
    All these epic songs from some of the best bands of all time and then I come up with Bob Marley. Honestly though, Marley was a great songwriter with a great passion for his music and his cause. It was a toss up between this and Redemption Song to go in the top 10.
  • 7. Jimi Hendrix, "All Along the Watchtower"
    While I might prefer other songs of his like Hey Joe, Burning of the Midnight Lamp, or Castles Made of Sand, Watchtower really showed brought Hendrix's abilities to the mainstream for most of us. He does an amazing cover here.
  • 6. John Lennon, "Imagine"
    I don't even have the words to explain the greatness of this song. It is just eerily wow.
  • 5. Eagles, "Hotel California"
    This always has and always will be a favorite of mine. From the time I was maybe 5 I could sing every lyric of this song from beginning to end, and probably hum the guitar solo too.
  • 4. Pink Floyd, "Wish You Were Here"
    I think everyone in the world, even those who've never touched a guitar in their life, know how to play the opening to this song. Great piece from a great album.
  • 3. Lynyrd Skynyrd, "Tuesday's Gone"
    Many would say Freebird is Skynyrd's primary ballad, however few songs match the power of Tuesday's. Once it hits the piano solo, the song goes from amazing to Epic.
  • 2. Pink Floyd, "Comfortably Numb"
    Though the first half of The Wall is filled with great song after song, the second half lays claim to one of the greatest songs of all time. The ending guitar piece rivals that of Stairway to Heaven.
  • 1. Led Zeppelin, "Stairway to Heaven"
    Not only the best song of the 70s, but by far the best song of all time. Nothing will ever touch Stairway.
Great Bands and their great songs
