What's the Best Song of the 1970s?
"Hey Jude" and "Satisfaction" have earned their way into our final poll. We have 5 songs in and 5 to go.
The Acclaimed Music critics list for the 1970s is pretty predictable and I'm sure there'd be an outcry if any of the top 5 weren't included in this poll. That said, there's a ton of good music that isn't represented below, including songs like "Tear The Roof Off The Sucka", "I Saw The Light", "I'm So Tired Of Being Alone", "Don't Stop Till You Get Enough", "Blue Sky", "Southern Cross", "Peace, Love and Understanding" and pretty much anything from The Police's debut album "Outlandos d'Amour".

Update: The polls are closed. The Who's "Baba O'Riley" was the winner and will move on to the finals.

|For the 80's see if you can find it in your heart not to go with acclaimed music's top five. Grandmaster Flash can stay, but the rest are truly bad choices. |

|Come on folks, no way Baba O'Reilly (a fine fine song) beats Stairway to Heaven. Not possible.
Will not accept that result.

|I voted for Baba O'Reilly above Stairway to Heaven. I loved both songs at the time, but I STILL love Baba O'Reilly, and that's the difference.
My major beef is that, out of all the incredible music Stevie Wonder put out in the 1970's, you chose "Superstition."
But on the other hand, I was going to bitch if "Moondance" wasn't on, so nice job!
