    As always, I do not look at the intellectual content of songs but rather the music that sears the heart. Again individual songs by many others not here are some times more brilliant than some songs by the groups here. For example, Moody Blues' "Nights in White Satin" can outdo any song by some entities here.  Or, "The air That I Breathe" by Hollies can beat any song by say, Ricky Nelson.  It is the overall appeal that is taken into account here. Also, It being my list, I have listed the groups I most like.  That they happen to be all from 70s can't be helped. 

    Please leave your comments, if you feel like it.  Thank you

    Good list, my music comes from the same era.  A list of my own would have the Moody Blues on it somewhere.
