    AARRGGHHHH "Feelings" that song was the WORST! And there was another idiotic song, "loving you is easy 'cause you're beautiful"... can't remember who sang it, but my husband says her Indian name is "Sings With Dolphins" lol (because the notes went up so high)

    I have to tell you that "Magic Carpet Ride" by Steppenwolf is my all time favorite song! I even have it as my ringtone on my cell phone. I realize that it originally came out in the late 60's but I think it got the h*ll played out of it in the 70's!!

    I've really enjoyed reading this post and re-living high school. I love a lot of the songs listed. Midnight at the Oasis brings back special memories for me.

    Oooh, so difficult! This is my pared-down list, in no particular order, and no going back over it because I would have added loads more!

    Sometimes when we touch - Dan Hill
    Follow You, Follow Me - Genesis
    Three Times a Lady - Commodores
    We've Got Tonight - Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band
    Seasons in the Sun - Terry Jacks
    Behind Blue Eyes - The Who
    House of the Rising Sun - Animals
    A Horse with No Name - America
    Sweet Home Alabama - Lynyrd Skynyrd
    Whiskey in the Jar - Thin Lizzie (because I bought the single for my mum thinking she would love it!!!)
    Mouldy Old Dough - Lieutenant Pigeon (just too funny)
    Baby I love your Way - Peter Frampton
    I'll Have to say I Love You in a Song - Jim Croce
    You are so Beautiful - Joe Cocker

    That's only a fraction of my real list! I have to cringeingly admit I used to cry myself to sleep over David Soul singing "Don't Give Up On Us"!!!! Anyone else?

    Back to the BEST - Ya need to throw in some by The Temptations and The Four Tops! Was thinking those were from my 60s days but they continued into the 70s, as well. I graduated from high school, in '71, so the two decades kinda run together, for me.

    I have to say, some of the songs, on others' BEST lists, would be on my WORST list . . . and vice-versa!

    Wait a minute here ... I cannot shake my booty like I used to or my hips will have to see a chiropractor !LOL
    Hmmmm... Lots of good songs came out of the 70's including some umm One hit wonders .. I would have to really break this up and say: Transsiberian Orchestra (yah I am a fan of the old band era -and no I am not THAT old !LOL, hmm maybe that was the 80's ? Hmmmm not really sure anymore its that door way study..LOL).
    Gosh never really thought about it .. hmm must go listen to the cd's of 70's music to figure it out .. LOL

    Bob Seger - we've got tonight, who needs tomorrow...

    When I was a kid, the radio station I listened to would ALWAYS play that song on Christmas Eve, and it drove me crazy. What do they mean, who needs tomorrow??? Are they crazy?!?!?!?? lol
