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 ( 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.

The countdown is going a little slow so I am going to start doubling up. Tonight's first song and number 81 on our countdown is our first entry by the band Pink Floyd. "Comfortably Numb" was on the Floyd double album "The Wall" which was released in 1979. It was also released as a single that same year with "Hey You" as its B side. The song was co-written by Gilmour and Waters.

The second entry and number 80 is by our very own WildZionBeaver's favorite artist, Bruce Springsteen. "Thunder Road" is not only performed by but also written by Springsteen. It serves as the opening track to his breakout album "Born To Run". It was released on August 25th 1975. It has gone on to be listed on many best songs of all time.
