    It makes no difference if it was a hit song or not.




    There are some songs that simply MUST appear on any list of 70's hits, and this is one of 'em."Listen to What the Man Said" is one of those unmistakeable 70's songs that's hard to catagorize because nothing seems to describe it well, but hard to forget too.

    I find it impossible to imagine the 70's without this wonderful 1975 tune from
    Paul McCartney and WINGS:

          Yeah . . . let's go with the movie theme. :D

          Remember the 1978 movie, HALLOWEEN, and the scene that needed a little classic 70's music to highlight some reefer madness, in the car, near the beginning of the movie?

          Well the music chosen was that amazing tune from 1976,

          "Don't Fear The Reaper" from Blue Oyster Cult.

          Friggin Awesome!

                Now it's time to sample another hit 70's movie theme!

                Check out the sound track to William Friedkin's 1973 mega hit movie,

                "The Exorcist":

                    Dude, I was waiting for RJ's resident British Rock fans to speak up.

                    I only know of Slade because of their KISS connection.
                    And I'm guessing Slade tried many times to strike gold here in the US.
                    Isn't it interesting how the UK and US music scenes can be so distinct?

                    Add any background on Slade that you would like to share, anytime!

                        The mid 70's was when a genre called progressive rock was at it's prime, one of my favourite progressive rock bands from this time would be Rush, and their best progressive song would have to be their 20 minute epic 2112, the video is split into 3 parts, if you have time to listen to the whole thing, I recommend you do if you're a fan of prog rock!

                          Every song on Apostrophe/Overnight Sensation by Frank Zappa and
                          every song on Starless and Bible Black by King Crimson.
                          Most of my favorite tunes have been mentioned but just in case I'll throw in Heart of the Sunrise, the version from Fragile.

                              Ohhh . . .

                              you wanted the [u]BEST[/u] Songs of the Seventies, lol! :P


                              Took some time off to get to know Rush and their album 2112 a little better.

                              Wind Adept, I could happily spend all of 2011 listening to 2112.
                              I can't thank you enough for linking to Rush.
                              This is why I joined Retro Junk!










                              Hark! - Who's that knocking at my door?



                              Why lookie here . . . it's Tony Orlando and Dawn

                              and they want to sing their January 1971 hit song, "Knock Three Times":

                                Well . . . so much for January 1971.


                                Now here is the monster hit that knocked everything else off the charts in February 1971, including Tony Orlando and Dawn.



                                This is the song that truly marked that the 1960's were over!



                                Let me repeat, it topped all the pop charts in February 1971 and stayed there longer than just about any song I can remember from those times.

                                It then went on to win Billboard' Magazine's Song of the Year for 1971.




                                Oh Yeah - Three Dog Night singing "Joy to the World":

                                  and my favorite cut from this awesome album was


                                  "Take the Long Way Home" - Supertramp:

                                      This is the music I would commute home from work by. Even today this album still impresses me with it's unique style and creative orchestration. From what I've read, a lot of people put Breakfast in America right at the top of outstanding 70's albums. And I agree!

                                        I really like Super Tramp but I prefer " Bloody well right". The cars first album is a classic. I LOVE Rush but prefer "A farewell to Kings" over "2112" but both are classics.

                                          Notice how I pick the songs I like off of an album, even when other songs have wider appeal. Wouldn't surprise me if "Goodbye Stranger" is a more popular Supertramp song.

                                          I enjoy reading other favorites from albums already listed.

                                          Time for me to check out "A Farewell to Kings".
