This is one in a series of posts counting down the top 100 songs of the 70's. I will post one of these every night with the exception of Thursday, Fridays or if there is breaking Dolphins news until we reach number one. This is more or less a way for us to pass time on the site during the slow time of year. Besides the 70's were the greatest decade in music.
Now these are not songs from my list but an independent list (http://www.digitaldreamdoor.com/pages/best_songs70s.html) who's rankings are based on initial and lasting popularity and acclaim from critics and fellow artist. Some of them I do not and you will not agree with and maybe that's the point of such lists. They create conversation's. Just like the list of all time great Dolphin players the number one selection is not going to surprise anyone but there will be, like with that other list, some surprises for some along the way and some others might just lead you to a new artist that you have long overlooked.
Remember this is an open thread and as such any subject is on the table outside of religion and politics. Please keep pics to a maximum of two per person and no GIF's in any of the live threads. Also try your best to keep things as close to PG as possible as we are on the front page.
Tonight's song on the countdown in "I'll Take You There" by the family band known as "The Staples Singers". The song was written and produced by Al Bell, who is best known as the founder of soul/R&B label Stax Records. The lead singer for the band was Mavis Staples who many may recognize from her recent work with Jeff Tweedy of Wilco. Released in February of 1972 the song went on to spend 15 weeks on the charts and reached number one on the Hot 100 list.
