Unlike the swinging 60s, which remains the most revered decade known to pop, the 1970s still divides opinion. Often derided as the decade wherein epic fashion fails such as bell-bottoms and tank tops held sway, it was nonetheless a rich decade for music. In celebration, here’s uDiscover’s Top 70s songs – a killer Top 15 from a chameleonic decade which embraced the glitter of glam rock, the sparkle of disco and the primal roar of punk.
