Sunday Night Random Live Thread:Top 100 Songs Of The 70's #84

Guitar 1

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 breakingDolphinsnews 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 "War" by Edwin Starr was written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong and was an anti-Vietnam War anthem. It was also originally produced as a Temptations song. After a push to have it released as a single it was re produces with Edwin Starr as the vocalist. The Starr version was released on June 10th of 1970 and hit number one on the Billboard charts during the same year. Bruce Springsteen recorded the song following the September 11th attacks. It was then added to the "Clear Channel" list of post 9/11 inappropriate titles.
