The Best 70s Hits Playlist Songs
With so many great songs to choose from the 70s, we are going to rank the most popular music bingo songs that will get your players singing and dancing along to your game!
If you are wanting to try a more difficult game of music bingo, why not consider a ‘Versus’ music bingo game. An example could include ‘ABBA vs The Beatles’. There is less chance of all players knowing song names and this encourages more collaboration in the music bingo game!
We think an ABBA music bingo night would go down a hit and be a musical bingo night to remember with an ABBA music bingo playlist!
For now, we show you our top 5 songs of the 70s hits music bingo playlist:
Dancing Queen – ABBA
A true feel-good song that is loved across generations. Including this ABBA song in your music bingo playlist is always a clever idea! A memorable song that most will know the name of. This means players will spend their time singing and dancing rather than guessing a song name.
ABBA Dancing Queen Facts
This ABBA song was performed in 1976 in tribute to Queen Silvia and King Gustaf XVI of Sweden, who were getting married the next day. However, it appears Queen Elizabeth is also a famous ABBA fan. As revealed to BBC DJ Chris Evans, ‘I always try to dance when this song comes on because I am the Queen and like to dance’.
Do Ya Think I’m Sexy – Rod Stewart
A song that has recently sparked a TikTok trend dancing to the 70s hit, this song will get all generations singing and dancing in your music bingo game. This song also features in our TikTok music bingo playlist since the Rod Stewart music video dance got everyone’s attention from the ‘Do Ya Think I’m Sexy’ TikTok trend.
Classified as ‘Disco Rock’, this song mixes the sounds of rock, pop and disco in a fun song perfect for music bingo!
American Pie – Don McLean
Known by many, this song is a 70s musical bingo wonder hit! American Pie was released in 1971 and alongside Don’s other songs ‘Vincent’, ‘And I Love You So’ and ‘Castles in the Air’. Together they have been played over 3 million times on US radio.

September – Earth, Wind and Fire
Another sing-along 70s hit! This tune will be known by most, and you will hear the lyrics echoing around your pub bingo venue! Combining soul, R&B, jazz and pop, this is a song everyone will be dancing to!
The question is, ‘Do you remember, the 21st night of September?’
You could speed through this song super quickly in your music bingo game, as the song title is given away in the first line. However, due to the popularity of this Earth, Wind & Fire song, we recommend that you at least play the chorus!
Music bingo fact – this ‘living in the moment’ song became very well-known due to its ‘ba de ya’ phrase. It is one of the most popular pop song lyrics! Many people think the ‘September’ song lyrics are ‘Party On’ but they are actually ‘ba de ya’.
