I don't think the 70s has the depth beyond say the top 50 that some of the other decades have, but my god there were some fucking bangers in that decade.

The overall top 20 or so is going to be fucking insane. Still got the 60s to go yet.


Kashmir and Babooshka were too low there btw but I was too late to edit it. Oh well.

I've reviewed all the lists, and these are the finalists.

All rankings now wild. Apologies, I fucked the order up a bit in a couple of lists as you can see from the missing numbers below.

Will sort the final order out this week. There's 139 songs left in it, so might only do the top 100.

Apologies to 1970s fans, but I suspect 5 or 6 of those are going to figure very high in the list indeed so hopefully will make up for the reduced numbers.
