    Stairway to Heaven, Iron Man, Paranoid, Bohemian Rhapsody, Hotel California, and American Pie are near the top of my list. There are so many it is too hard to pick one. I liked Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Kiss, Styx, The Steve Miller Band, The Eagles, The Bellamy Brothers, etc.... I am sure there are many I am leaving off.

    Other favorites from the 70s (can't post videos right now)...Carole King, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon. Y'all posted some great songs, but I'm more of a soft-rock person...never got into hard-rock and metal too much.

    The Zombies - Time of The Season



    Parliament - Give Up The Funk


    Ray Wylie Hubbard and Jerry Jeff Walker - Up Against The Wall Redneck Mother



    Led Zeppelin - Black Dog

    I might have to settle on "Yesterday" which I posted in OP.

    My favorite song from '64 till '69 would be Dusty Springfield's "I Only Want To Be With You".

    The 60's and 70's are when I was growing up.

    I have been listening to music since I was 5 years old or so because my older brother had a radio that we listened to each night as we went to sleep growing up. He always fell asleep first so I listened to a lot of music, LOL!

    It was AM radio, "Night Flight" out of Chicago.

    I now listen to 60's and 70's channel on SiriusXM radio. Also listen to 'Classic Vinyl' and 'Classic Rewind' channels on XM, .. which is songs from the late 60's, 70's and early 80's.

    I like all music, but I'm kind of stuck in that time frame. LOL

    So this thread is awesome, and right up my alley.
