I love 80's music and 70's music equally. Anybody know of Al Stewart? :)

I wish I knew more about that era of music. I do enjoy listening to some of it, but I don't actively pay attention to specific artists. My brother, on the other hand, is a huge fanatic of music spanning from the 1920s to modern.

60s - 70s were the best decades for pop/rock music. Year of the Cat is a classic. Greatest 70s band was Blue Oyster Cult. Their most famous song was Don't Fear the Reaper. Godzilla was used in a TV commercial. Best album was 74 Secret Treaties with awesome songs like ME 262, Harvester of Eyes and Flaming Telepaths. Steely Dan was a great band too - very hard to classify. Jazz/rock maybe. Their 74 album Pretzel Logic was also great - 74 was a great year for music. The Dan song Barrytown is about the Unification Church a mile from the Bard College Campus where the band leaders met. J Geils Band was a great underrated band.

Other 70s Paul revere and the Raiders, Three Dog Night - LOTS of hits - Joplin, James Taylor, Don Maclean, Bill Withers, Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Clapton, Bachman Turner Overdrive, Eagles, Linda Ronstadt - the most beautiful voice of all time . Disco was overrated - BeeGees had hits but that stuff don't hold up well.

60s was when The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones started. The Doors were a great band, but there were a ton of other bands Rascals, Simon and Garfunkel, Otis Redding, Herman's Hermits, Righteous Brothers, Troggs, Lovin' Spoonful, 4 Seasons, Beach Boys, Elvis, The Supremes.

70s Pink Floyd - how could I forget Dark Side of the Moon and Wish you Were Here. Also Cheap Trick - the Live at Budokan album is classic. Ted Nugent too - Cat Scratch Fever! Steve Miller Band had solid hits too.

A song that was years ahead of its time. Who at this time was singing about gay people? His 70's music is amazing.

Went to see rod a few years ago when i was enjoying a less than hectic anxiety summer. He was about 45 min late for his own concert, but was fantastic when he did show up!

70's music is not for me, although I do like Gary Wright with Dreamweaver and some of Barry White's music.

Dreamweaver - classic! I forgot about Gerald Rafferty w ho had super hits Baker Street and Stuck in the Middle With You. In my 60s list I forgot Led Zeppelin. How could I forget Led Zeppelin! They lasted until 1980 when they broke up after their drummer died.

I have a CD called "The #1 new wave album" and there's some good tunes on there that are hard to find...

Joe Jackson, LOL.

The guy presenting the show, though? Get stuffed!

In my opinion, Disco music from the 1970's is okay. I don't hate it or love it. I'm somewhere in the middle.

Jackson's Is She Really Going Out With Him was 1978 - just under the 70s wire I had thought it was 80s. I think of him as an 80s guy.

I am still into Ska music. The second wave began in about 1979 with The Specials. Music was first around in the 1960's and even earlier. The whole beat to it. The image as well. Always had the old skinhead look.

My favorite part of Gary Wright's song Dreamweaver is right near the end of the song.

Ska is 90's music to me. It looks like it got popular here in the 80's. Mighty Mighty Bosstones are one of the 90's bands I like.

Yeah. UB40 are kind of similar to The Beat and The Specials. The Clash also have reggae heard in their music. Today's music is virtually all trash, for the most part.

I also forgot Doobie Brothers - tons of 70's hits - What a Fool Believes, Black Water, Listen to the Music, China Grove, Minute by Minute, and It Keeps You Runnin" are just a few.

Not sure if Americans would have heard of Ian Dury and the Blockheads? Amazing band. Started out in the 70's. Songs were a bit on the edge by way of sexual.

I thought Ian Dury and the Blockheads are unknown to me. But I do know that Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll song. I remember hearing it once when I was a kid, but I never caught the name of the band - that was pre-internet. Now after all these years I know who performed it. Thanks!

Ian Dury had to wear a leg brace most of his life. Kids would slag him off in school. Once famous he decided to put this song out. Warned not to do so. But he wanted to. Way of having a pop at all those people who ever slagged him off in school when he was younger.
