Top Songs from the 70s
Music has a unique ability to connect individuals across generations. For instance, a popular song from decades past may resonate perfectly with a young person today.
Although the 1970s may seem like ages ago, many popular songs from that era remain radio-friendly hits. Here are three of those tunes that have stood the test of time:
- “Landslide” by Fleetwood Mac (1975) – This song was supposedly inspired by the uncertainty Stevie Nicks – the lead singer of Fleetwood Mac – felt about whether to go back to school or continue pursuing music. Its timeless lyrics can apply to many different decisions associated with growing up, from career changes to break-ups: “Well, I’ve been afraid of changin’ / ‘Cause I built my life around you.”
- “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen (1975) – It’s difficult to think of a song that can compare to this one, which is often credited for beginning the trend of music videos. The song has no chorus and combines an array of music genres, including progressive pop and hard rock. One of its most recognizable line is: “Oh mama mia, mama mia (mama mia, let me go).”
- “Hotel California” by The Eagles (1976) – In spite of clocking in at a lengthy six minutes, “Hotel California” is still regularly played on the radio. Its easygoing melody and distinctive guitar notes accompany ominous lyrics like, “You can check-out any time you like / But you can never leave.”
