What songs from the 1970’s are on your playlist?

The 1970's were a great time for me, full of wonderful music to go along with the best decade of my life. So many songs to choose from, but I will start with one of my all time fav Fleetwood Mac songs "Go your own way" from the incredible Rumours album, recorded in 1977. I am pretty sure I wore this album out!!

Hey the 1970 s was the best by far the most greatest decade of classic rock and roll music besides the 60 s!!! I have a huge playlist that I can't even begin to start how about Meatloaf:.            Paradise by the Dashboard Light  from the Bat Out of Hell                  Blue Oyster Colt. " Don't Fear the Reaper''
