Some of the greatest sounds ever were created during the seventies with some of my personal favourites including Queen and Led Zeppelin. Songs with words and lyrics that has so much meaning that you feel personal attachment to the words. Take for example one of the world’s greatest and most requested songs “Stairway to Heaven” from Led Zeppelin. If I have to name some of the most popular and greatest bands of the seventies I am positive most of you seventies lover would agree.
Number one LED ZEPPELIN and followed in no particular order the best groups include The Doors, The Jackson 5, Queen, Pink Floyd, Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Beatles and the
If I have to name individuals obviously Freddie Mercury with Bohemian Rhapsody and Crazy Little Thing Called Love in the seventies. Freddie Mercury was certainly one of the greatest of all time with excellent stage presence and you will probably agree that there was none like him.
Looking at Pink Floyd you will notice that their best albums and songs are during the 1970s. Their songs have so much meaning and they set standards with honest and brilliant lyrics. One of the top includes Dark Side of the Moon, The Wall and Wish You Were Here. Then I have to include ABBA with their pleasant and catchy melodies. Another top band is the one that kicked off Heavy Metal, Black Sabbath with utterly unique style.
Another legendary band that many refer to as the Greatest American Rock and Roll band is Aerosmith and i have to agree on that the produced unstoppable magnificence.
Even though the Rolling Stones formed in the early 1960s, they were awesome only during the seventies even though they might be the one band with the most live performances in history.
One of the best rock instrumentals ever comes from the Allman Brothers Band. They were so great that only instrumentals were needed even though words have always been my thing and many people who loves the seventies and eighties agree it is because of soulful and meaningful words that those times are still the best. Thus do they belong high up in the category of best band of the 70s and certainly undisputedly best instrumental band. Midnight Rider and Ramblin Man are the best playlists.
Obviously The Eagles were top too and incredibly gifted. Just look a songs like Hotel California, One of these Nights, I Can’t Tell You Why, and Lyin Eyes to name a few timeless hits. Fleetwood Mac is one of the prime bands with over hundred million worldwide sales making the one of the best-selling groups of all time. When I look at individual artists I always hope I do not neglect to leave one out, but you will all agree with me when I take a mid-seventies list of names and if I forget to mention one of your favorites, leave me a comment.
