About this playlist

We’ve got the ultimate laidback soundtrack in our amazing Easy 70s playlist!

The 70s is so often thought of for the proliferation of disco music. But it was also a decade of beau-tiful easy, relaxed music, with so many ballads that etched their way into history.

So put on our brilliant playlist as the perfect accompaniment to your gentle afternoon or relaxed evening.

We start with one of the most notable 70s country songs, Glen Campbell’s Rhinestone Cowboy. Glen, an extraordinarily talented musician who perfectly captures the mood of his native southern states, bravely lives on with Alzheimer’s and has just released the title track from his new album. Having received standing ovations in every city on his 2012 goodbye tour, it just seems perfectly appropriate that Glen was born in a town called Delight.

Our playlist continues with some of the most profound, calm tracks from the decade. Don McLean’s poignant tribute to Vincent Van Gogh perfectly represents the artist’s life and his work, and Elvis’ Always On My Mind was not only one of the greatest tracks of the decade but of his en-tire illustrious songbook.

There are so many beautiful easy ballads from the 70s that any such playlist could easily span hundreds of tracks. We take a journey with Kiki Dee, Carole King, the Beatles, the Eagles, the Carpenters, Elton, James Taylor, Fleetwood Mac, Barry White, Diana Ross, John Denver, Carly Simon, Roberta Flack, and many more.

Our playlist closes with a coming-of-age Michael Jackson, who, for the final cut of his superb track She’s Out Of My Life, insisted on retaining the raw emotion he had recorded. The reflective ballad clearly came straight from Michael’s heart and remained an important song throughout his career.

So take a journey with us through relaxed 70s music with our brilliant Easy 70s playlist
