Subject: Create Your OWN 1970's CD. What songs would you include?

Written By: Banks on 12/21/05 at 7:58 pm

Im not sure if this has been done before, but if you could create your own 1970's various artists CD that you believe would initiate the uninitiated into LOVING at least 1970's music, what songs would you include if you only had room for 20 songs????


Here are mine:

1. Hello, This Is Joannie (The Telephone Answering Machine Song) by Paul Evans

2. Silver Springs by Fleetwood Mac

3. The Imigrant Song by Led Zeppelin

4. Rubber Bullets by 10CC

5. Band Of Gold by Freda Payne

6. Black Superman - 'Muhammad Ali' by Johnny Wakelin and the Kinshasa Band

7. Idi Amin by Idi Amin and the Campala Club Singers (this is a very light hearted song about a very bad Ugandan president)

8. Love To Love You Baby by Dinna Summer

9. Children Of The Revolution by T-Rex

10. ABC by The Jackson 5

11. Goin To California by Led Zeppelin

12. Dont Stop by Fleetwood Mac

13. School's Out by Alice Cooper

14. Love Grows Where my Rosemary Goes by Edison Lighthouse

15. Aint Gonna Bump No More (With No Big Fat Woman) by Joe Tex

16. The Hustle by Van McCoy & the Soul City Symphony

17. Mull Of Kintyre by Paul McCartney and Wings

18. Who Are You by The Who

19. Paranoid by Black Sabbath

20. Alright Now by Free




Theres mine...I think that if a person hadnt really heard much 70's music, or if they hadnt really payed attention, that these songs would show them what music in the 1970's was all about.
