The 1970s was a time of music innovation, which gave birth to several different genres of music. Many of these genres became very popular — disco, rock, soul and more, however many of songs from these genres clearly made their mark among the best heard during the summertime. Here are some of the best songs from the decade that are great while relaxing on a beach.
“Margaritaville” – Jimmy Buffett
Jimmy Buffett takes the top spot with “Margaritaville.” The song was dedicated to a drink served at a restaurant in Texas, but now it represents anywhere that has a beach vacation vibe.
Although the song was released in the winter of ’77, it gained enough popularity by the summer to make the relaxed vibes it provides really shine.
