70s Love Songs

I was born at the beginning of the 70s, so most of what I know of the love songs from that decade is as "retro" music. While it was definitely a dance era (disco and funk spring to mind), a lot of sweet and touching ballads came out of the 70s. So if the 70s holds special associations for you, why not incorporate into your wedding ceremony some of the best 70s love songs to come out of that decade?
