Love Songs of the '70s

Does your lady love retro? Do you want to serenade your lover with a melody from the '70s and a guitar under a full moon lit up brightly with the stars? You got the love and the peace, I got the music! Take your pick from this compilation of the best love songs of the '70s.
I just love the '70s. There is no other decade as colorful and musical like it. The start of seventies saw the rise of the flower power a.k.a. hippie culture and soft/pop rock music. The Rolling Stones, The Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Bee Gees, ABBA, Elton John, Sir Paul McCartney and so many more bands and singers will be remembered in the history of music. Yes, they were the melodious prodigies of the seventies that dished some of the most famous love songs that we listen to even today. The '70s was the era of experimental music like - heavy metal, funk and soul (rhythm and blues), psychedelic/art/progressive/hard rock, jazz and disco!

Oh yes, on the subject of love, there are so many immensely sweet and romantic love songs that will melt even the most flinty heart with their lyrics and symphony. My favorite since 15 has been "If you leave me now" by Chicago. If you want to express your love, move over the raunchy music of the 2010s and let the love songs from the '70s flow from your lips to the sweet ears of your darling. Or if you sing like a donkey, burn a CD old-school style. Genius. I often find myself giving my own little duet performance with these musicians on my stereo (to, well, the mirror on my wall). I have given here an entire list of 70's love songs for you to choose from. You are welcome.
