Wednesday Night Random Live Thread:Top 100 Songs Of The 70's Song #98

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 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 open thread and as such any subject is on the table outside of religion and politics. Please keep picks to a minimum of 2 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.

Song number 98 on our list is from the band "The Police". The song, "Message In A Bottle" was from their second album "Regatta de Blanc". The single dropped in September of 1979. The song was written by Sting and produced and preformed by the entire band. The single marked the first number one for the band in the UK. It only managed #74 but has since gone on to be one of The Police's all time most popular songs and still sees constant radio play to this day on classic rock stations across the country.
