    I Love Fleetwood Mac, Cher, ABBA, John Lennon, James Taylor, Simon and Garfunkel Free Bird, stairway to heaven, Aquarius, Bohemian Rhapsody. and depending on your point of view Barry Manilow, Rod Stewart, Donny and Marie, John Denver. Not fond of Meatloaf. That's all I can remember from High School.

    Yes, thank you. And Maya Rudolph (SNL fame) is her daughter. I don't know who wrote that song, but even as a child I thought those lyrics were dumb.

    While I loved many songs from the 70's, listening to them now often makes me feel sad. I don't know why? Here are a few that really take me back:

    It Never Rains in Southern California by Albert Hammond
    Behind Closed Doors by Charlie Rich
    Most Beautiful Girl in the World by Charlie Rich

    I still love the last two songs because my DH loved them, sang them to me and told me each time he heard them that they were his favorites because the songs made him think of me. He still tells me that. Isn't that wonderful?

    I feel the same way. My opinion is it's because we're getting older, those days of our youth are gone. Waaaaaaa!

    I am from the class of '74. The song that defines boys of that era for me is, "jump in my car" by the ted mullary gang,
    it is definately an aussie song, but still makes me laugh!
    my favourite 70's songs are many....but I was in love with cat stevens.
    pink floyd....a great band...dark side of the moon....classic
    bee gees ....another great band with so many great songs
    dolly parton....my all time favourite female singer
    olivia newton john.....numerous very good songs too
    eagles, elton john, america, crosby steels and nash, slade, deep purple....and the list goes on
    If you look like your passport photo then you're too ill to travel!!

    Remember that Stayin' Alive is the recommended beat for doing CPR. Not kidding. That's what we were told when we took a refresher class a year ago! Maybe that's because Travolta lives in this town. Just sayin.' Did you have any SUpremes(Stop! In the Name of Love) or how about Beatles...That was a great era in music.

    Ugly, ugly, ugly, still makes my skin crawl: "I'm not in love" by 10cc ...as for the other suggestions, they're all great. I'd never be able to choose, But the ugly part I've got down pat.

    If it's true we learn from our mistakes, I'm going to be a genius!

    Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen is my favorite

    Not a 70's song but the best song ever is Hallelujah by Leonard Cohen. Doesn't matter what artist sings it.

    My grandson Micheal would sing along with John Denver while riding in my truck.
    One day I asked him to sing Country Roads for Grampa......
    He said no. I shamelessly bribed him with a dollar. Again he said No.
    So I lost all my scruples and said I would give him 2 dollars......his reply.........


    No Gramma, I don't need the money!!

    And went off to play.

    The Village Green Preservation Society by The Kinks (Though I prefer the remake by Irish artist Kate Rusby)
    Do not worry about the past, for it is history,
    Do not worry about the future, for it is a mystery,
    Only live for today, for it is a gift, that is why it is called "the present."

    What about The Moody Blues Nights in White Satin? I remember I bought the album in a head shop on UT campus while on a journalism trip. (can't believe I remember that) And ... Loving Touchin and Squeezin by Journey. Love me some Steve Perry.
