70's (with a bit of the late 60's and early 80's thrown in as well)

Already went off before it even started. This should be the playlist name.

Anyway, here is a suggestion could be the 101 70ish songs.

If My Mary Were Here - Harry Chapin

It's not 70s if you're gonna include other eras / decades. 😉

I have a 70s playlist (that does get added to sometimes) on Spotify here:

Though this one isn't dominated by rock, it's more the stuff I grew up listening to on my little record player and transistor radio.

First of all, if a song was released in 1969, it would've been fairly popular at the start of the 70's. Also, I'm not going to call it songs from 1969-1982. Great playlist though, although I prefer more rock, though I might edit my setlist to include some of your songs.

Thanks! I included songs on mine that were released in the 70s, these are my memories of childhood and my transistor radio / record player back then, even though there was a lot of rock playing in the house as well via my parents. 😀 Yes, I suppose LATE '69 and still popular through the beginning of 1970 COULD count. 

I like the other suggestion 70-ish Songs or maybe 70s Inspired? Dunno.  It's a good list of stuff though.

I had a very similar experience as a kid. I would listen to the local rock radio station for hours at a time or listen to albums in their entirety. Actually, I still own a AM/FM radio because it helps me fall asleep. Also, I want to know if I am missing any notable songs in my list.

Welcome @HMBeatlesfan. Regarding missing songs, it depends how representative you want to make the list.

For my tastes, there is a distinct lack of Bob Dylan. After all, two of his most highly rated albums (Blood on the Tracks and Desire) come from the decade. Were it my list, I would at least have either Tangled Up in Blue from BotT or Hurricane from Desire on it. Probably both.

I would have to have the Velvet Underground's Sweet Jane and Rock & Roll from 1970's Loaded. And how can any '70s list not include Lou's Bowie-produced Walk on the Wild Side.

Talking of Bowie, where is he? He more-or-less owned the decade...

These list things are never easy!

In my neck of the woods (northern Maine, at the time), Southern Rock ruled our mid-70s turntables, if not the airwaves..  So I'd opt for some Allman Brothers, Marshall Tucker Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Charlie Daniels Band.  And then I'd add Neil Young,  Bruce Springsteen and early Elvis Costello (and previously-mentioned Blood on the Tracks/Desire Dylan). 

I would not add any disco, however.

He wasn't at the time I wrote that. The 1st post in this thread has been edited 17 times. At the time I commented on the lack of Bowie, the list was "70 from the '70s", didn't include Bowie, and had two gaps in it.

It's one of those rare instances where something's been edited so much it can make some of the replies seem nonsensical.

I'm impressed with the counting. You see, it can be so hard to make these lists because you might forget a song or 2 that you felt was important. For example, at first, I forgot about Boston although I love their music. Also, I changed it to my childhood so I can do more stuff from the early 80's mixed in with the 70's and even some late 60's. Also, if I listen to one of your recommendations and change something to include it, then the reply wasn't nonsensical at all, but rather helpful.

Ideally you'd update the list in a new post as it means folk can keep with the conversation and changes.

Thats not a mod thing its a personal non-mod one.

This is going off-topic a little, but we used to prevent people from editing their own posts after the first reply. It was put in place after a nameless user decided to delete his entire post history, but I seem to have since removed it. Shall I bring it back? Quick poll [removed]

In my opinion, @Joe, while it was unfortunate that the amount of editing, including the replacing of the whole list twice, happened to the OP that did. Hopefully lessons have been learned. It is such a rare occurrence that a post is edited so much though, that I believe removing edits would be the more damaging choice.

Everybody here has had to edit things at times, and those edits are neatly every time tidying-up mistakes or adding a point you realise has been missed. Not often someone replaces the substance of a post in its entirety. Twice.

The forum would read a lot clumsier with the ability to edit, and the mods would probably start getting many requests to go in and make necessary corrections to posts that mistakes have been made in.

I say no, as someone who does a fair bit of editing of their posts for spelling it can make the forum more legible if people are allowed to edit their posts.

Also it is less work for the mods.
