For me it was Elton John and the Stones. I still think Goats Head Soup was one of the more underrated albums of the 70's.

But why the longevity for most 70's music? Rock N Roll started in the 50's so the music and lyrics were still very basic. In the 60's they progressed and some bands really experimented with different sounds and styles. By the time the 70's got here, artists and bands had perfected the simplicity of the 50's and the experimentation of the 60's to get a more refined, polished and professional sound. The lyrics too had been more polished into a more personal experience for the listener.

I am biased though, because 70's music is what I started on.


Biased or not, I think that's the best explanation I've ever heard. I now feel like I totally understand why '70s music is glorified in comparison to other decades (especially the '50s and '60s). I don't know if I fully understand your point about the lyrics though. What do you think makes the lyrics from the '70s any more polished or personal than those in songs from the '60s?

I don't actually remember the 70's, but I have looked into the music scene from that era, and asked older relatives, of course. It seems that there were three main strands of music in the 70's: rock based music ranging from classic rock such as Led Zeppelin to soft rock, such as the Eagles; soul and disco music ranging from Stevie Wonder to Barry White; and, later on in the 70's, there was the emergent punk scene in the form of the Sex Pistols and others, which ultimately led to the New Wave of the 80's.

By the way, I am writing from a British perspective, so the music scene may have been a bit different in other countries.

Something about them 70's. Seemed like the envelope was being pushed in many directions. Soul was getting funk'd, jazz was blending rock in fusion. Rock got punked towards the later part of the decade. And reggae became a thing with Bob Marley. It's my go to decade for that genre. But there were so many more than the superstar Marley. And the Blues was starting to make a big comeback too. The disco decade gets hung on that era like that was all that was going on. Thankfully, no way. Though I didn't mind some of it. Like, Get Down Tonight.
