Popular Song Charts Of The 70s

About Music of the 70s: Things You Need To Know

In 1976, The Beatles reached # 7 on the charts with Got To Get You Into My Life. A pretty cool achievement for a band that had broken up 6 years earlier. It was a single from the Rock and Roll Music compilation album.
1978 # 1 hit, You Don't Bring Me Flowers was actually a remix of two different versions of the song, done by Neil Diamond and Barbra Striesand. WAKY-AM/Louisville KY program director Gary Guthrie spliced the two versions together as a gift for his wife, who was apparently a fan of both artists.
1973's Dark Side of the Moon, by Pink Floyd began it's 741 weeks in the top album charts. Money was the biggest single off the album, reaching #111 on the pop charts. (not a typo)
In 1978, Soundtracks rocked the carts - Night Fever, If I Can't Have You and Stayin Alive from Saturday Night Fever hit number on the Billboard Charts, as did Grease and You're The One That I Want from Grease.
1972 marked the deaths of Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin. Don McLean's American Pie referenced three other rock deaths from the Day The Music Died (February 3, 1959) - Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and The Big Bopper
