Seventies Lesser-Known Singles Playlist




I spend a lot of time reviewing albums on this blog, albums that are considered as “credible”, and I love them all, but, sometimes, I simply enjoy just listening to some good old fashioned singalong POP. Here is a selection of comparatively lesser-known seventies singles to which I know every word and every note. Again, I love them all and they were part of the soundtrack to my youth.
