Thumbs up Top 10 songs of the 70's

To continue with the current trend of music threads I thought you might like to take a trip down musical memory lane and choose your favorite songs of each decade. Take your time, I know these decisions aren't easy.

Ooh, a bunch of threads to keep us hopping!

You're right, it's not going to be an easy decision. But I'm sure we'll try nonetheless!

TennisHack, you do realize that the original version of Layla does not plod along at 3mph, right?

Yes I do, but the song has always been associated with "Eric Clapton", both versions of it.

A thousand pardons.

Lol, there's no reason why you should know Eric's band was called Derek and the Dominoes. It was a one-off thing anyway and you're right. Everyone refers to it as a Clapton song, which it is (apart from the enormous contribution of the inimitable Duane Allman ).

What's so funny 'bout peace, love and understanding?

Alright, more contributions!

That's a great list, MirjanaLFan! Especially all the Joni songs. And Wuthering Heights is just wonderful. It's a fitting title considering the heights Kate Bush could reach.
