No. No, That’s NOT The Best Of The Seventies. At All.

I heard a “Best of the Seventies” station at the dentist the other day. It was an actual XM Station though, not Muzak, so there was no excuse. They played Abba, Neil Sedaka, Paper Lace, and whatever that Do The Hustle song is.

This is NOT the best of the seventies. The best music of the seventies is, in the order that it popped into my head is:

1. Jethro Tull

2. Yes

3. Emerson Lake and Palmer

4. Spyro Gyra

5. Chicago

6. Pink Floyd

7. Marvin Gaye

8. Led Zepplin (NOT, contrary to belief, a one-hit wonder.)

9. Stevie Wonder.

10. Simon and Garfunkle

11. Earth, Wind and Fire

12. Jackson Brown

13. The Ramones.

14. Queen

15. Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young

That’s not all of them by a long shot, but it surely doesn’t include Seasons in the Sun or Billy Don’t Be a Hero.

  1. Reblogged this on Vasile Roata.

  2. I definitely agree. I was born in the 80s but even I know what the real best of 70s is. I also hate that the best of the 90s includes Barbie Girl.
