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.

Tonight's first song, number 79, is from former Beatles great Paul McCartney. "Maybe I'm Amazed" was never released as a singled but was on his album "McCartney", released April 17th 1970. Despite never being released as a singled it still received plenty of radio play at the time making it a hit all the same. McCartney dedicated the song to his wife Linda who he claimed had helped him though the break up of the Beatles. The song was again released in a live version in 1976 and became a top ten hit in the US.

Tonight's second entry, number 78, is from 70's singer and actress Freda Payne. The song "Band Of Gold" was released in 1970. The single went gold and made Freda and overnight pop sensation. The song reached number three in the US and number one on the UK charts.
