Whether you had Saturday night fever in the 1970s, or you weren't even born yet, you have to appreciate the decade for its great music. (Of course, '70s movies were pretty great, too). Every genre, from funk and soul to rock and disco, earned its own unique place in the music world during these formative years.
Singers like Diana Ross, Paul McCartney, and Olivia Newton-John quickly gained popularity as solo artists while beloved groups like the Bee Gees and The Temptations dominated the airwaves together. While they all produced very different sounds, they all have one thing in common: These artists created the best '70s songs of all time.
Regardless of what type of music you prefer, you'll appreciate the hits on this list: They totally defined the decade. The moment you press play, these tunes will transport you back to an era filled with bell-bottoms, hot pants, and platform shoes. You'll know the words to many songs on this list, like "American Pie" and "Dancing Queen." These works all reached the top of the Billboard Hot 100 at one point or another, proving their widespread popularity and forever solidifying their place in music history.
This playlist is great for reliving your glory days or for throwing a fun dance party at home.
