I'm trying to figure out what the opposite song is of Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, cause that must be it.
No, I understand what he's saying. He's looking for an ephemeral song that could only be recorded and chart in the 70s--a disposable song that is tied to the decade and is largely forgotten today but was a hit back then that exemplified the 70s. You know, something like, I don't know, "Pac Man Fever" for the early 80s, but maybe not quite that much of a novelty song.

I wasn't really around in the 70s, so I don't have a good answer. Maybe something by Captain and Tenille, but maybe something more obscure.
