    if you're going to put time restraints on a category, you better make sure the songs fit within those restraints. so many in this category do not. i reported some yesterday, but, that post disappeared.

    "Leader of the Pack" by the Shangri-Las is from 1964. You tell me what category it should go in. Just not this one! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leader_of_the_Pack

    Spirit of Radio by Rush was released in 1980. Not a 70's Supersound. You guys really need to square your mistakes away. It doesn't take that much work to make sure things are as advertised

    Rob, going by the way we number years, you know, starting with Year AD 1 instead of 0, 1980 can count as the last year of the decade of the 70s, so I would allow a little wiggle room on that one. Rhino's legendary "Super Hits of the 70's" comps started with a song or two from '69. Personally, I draw the line at a girl group song from 1964 that it completely out of place in a 70s vein.

    Mark, I can more easily understand songs from the 60s in this category because they received AirPlay in the 70s and became iconic to that decade. But Spirit of Radio is more closely associated with the 80s, not only for its release date but also for its musical style. Even less forgivable are bands that weren't even in existence by 1980, such as the rapper DMX (born in 1970), The 69 Eyes(formed in 1989), Oasis(1991), or Gorillaz(1998). Tom Cochrane, while an active act in the 1970s(can you name anything he did in that era?), didn't release Life is a Highway until 1991. So in short, no. I am not giving any leeway on the Rush song. Sadly, Rush is my favourite band and Spirit of Radio is an awesome song, it just doesn't belong in this list, like so many others.

    Let me add Journey's Don't Stop Believin' and point out that my cousin's Folsom Prison Blues was originally released back in the 1950s, 55 to be exact, I believe. (Yes, Johnny Cash is/was my cousin.)

    i got a response from songpop that this can't be fixed. the songs were chosen by a sponsor. obviously a clueless sponsor. i wrote back asking them to talk to the sponsor and ask them to at least change the name to "supersounds" and leave off any decade references. also, the term supersounds is subjective and is just the sponsors opinion. oh well, at least we tried.

    Oooh! I got a good one! 

    Ja Rule (wtf?) "Put It On Me." That's from 2000! Rap hadn't even been created then. OK, the guy was born in Feb. 1976.

    at first  i thought 70s supersong may be 70s and modern songs with a 70s sound/vibe till i saw newer rap songs just revamp it a bit and itll be cool its the scoring that confuses the crap outta me

    Tracy Chapman's "Fast Car"?  

    Beach Boys "I Get Around"?

    Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA"?

    CCR's "Susie Q"?

     

    I'm sorry, but who the hell is in charge of genre accuracy?  You're FIRED!

    Stuck in the Middle with You is Stealers Wheel, NOT Reservoir Dogs, the movie that used it.

    Yeah, in one round of 70's Supersounds I got Born in the USA, Born To Be Wild, and Folsom Prison Blues, which at least I was able to correctly guess even if they are from different decades than the 70's as advertised, along with some odd song called Deep Red Bells by Neko Case, which was released in 2002! That screwed my game up big time since I had never heard of the song or the woman! Thanks a lot, Song Pop!

    There is also music by Oasis (from the 90s) and The 5.6.7.8's (also formed in the 1990s but a retro sound. honest mistake).

     

    in response to some of James K's comment: The Talking Heads was from the 70s. Wondering which song though.. If it was "Psycho Killer" then its CORRECT because thats from 1977.

    I bought this list cause I had it sent to me a few times, and liked the tunes .... and just figured that the songs were picked because the had a '70's supersounds" vibe to them, since yeah most of them not from the '70's
