Possibly the reason that I love the music of the '70s so much is slightly more personal than that.

For many of us, it's those warmly remembered pet sounds of our teenage years that never really leave our heads or our hearts. All I really know is whenever I'm driving in my car and feel like choosing a specific decade on my satellite radio, I almost always pick that one sandwiched conveniently between the '60s and the '80s.

"The Music of the 70s" 00:15

This Thursday night CNN will broadcast the excellent final episode of "The Seventies," called "What's Going On," in which you can see me and many other much more impressive individuals reflect on this unforgettable decade in music.

In order to prove what an enduring Golden Age the '70s really were, I wanted to share a list with you. This is not a list of the "10 Greatest Albums of the '70s" -- or even my "10 Favorite Albums of the '70s" -- but rather 10 lasting gems that at least for me somehow retain their ability to hit the listener hard all these years later.

1. "Songs in the Key of Life" -- Steve Wonder

"Songs In The Key Of Life" is as good as popular music ever gets -- an amazingly expansive showcase for Stevie Wonder's singular ability to bring his profound musical inversions vividly to life.

When Stevie recently toured performing his "Songs In The Key of Life" album live, it was also possibly the single most impressive concert I have ever witnessed.

As Questlove, my insightful "co-star" in "The Seventies," wisely notes in the episode, Stevie artistically owned the '70s much in the way the Beatles did the previous decade. Stevie's early "Talking Book" and "Innervisions" album are nearly as essential listening, but if you want to dig deepest, start right here.

2. "Rocket to Russia" -- The Ramones
