You left out one of my favorite bands of the 70's, The Raspberries. To me, they were the Beatles of the 70's. Great harmonies, jangly guitars, awesome songs like, "Go All The Way", "Let's Pretend", "I Wanna Be With You" etc. Eric Carmen was great!

Did you "Guess Who" these 1970s hitmakers were? Which song from that year is your favorite?

Missed #7 & #8. Never heard of them or those two songs.

10/12; I did well despite having to guess on most. I grew up in the 70's but did not know a lot of these songs but recognized the band names.
JDnHuntsvilleAL MrBill 39 months ago
I'm the other way around. I knew MOST of the songs but back then I rarely paid attention to the band's name.

8/12 - disappointed with that result. Saw Alive N Kickin perfom a number of times in New York in the 1970's and 1980's

Yep! 12 of 12 correct! Not surprised though. I grew up with this music!

I wish they had mentioned Precious and few by Climax as well as Traces by Dennis Yost and the Classics 4 also they forgot what a year for Karen And Richard Carpenter
Koreth Randall 46 months ago
There was so much good rock and roll music back then, I doubt they could have included them all or this would have been a very long quiz! Crosby Stills & Nash, Jackson 5, Eric Burdon, R Dean Taylor and so many more.

Wasn't Precious and Few by Climax a bit later? 72 or 73?
MarkSpeck Koreth 39 months ago
Precious and Few was indeed 1972.
