Do you remember who sang the biggest hits of 1970?

"Thank You (Faplayyin Are Quiz Agin)"

The radio today sounds much different than it did 51 years ago. (Unless you're listening to MeTVFM, of course.) But there was still a striking variety at the top of the charts in 1970.

Gentle folk tunes, funky soul, boogying rock, comedic country — there was something for everybody.

Below, you will find a dozen of the biggest singles from 1970. All of them placed in Billboard's Top 20 songs of the year. They may have been massive hits, but it takes a true music guru to get 8/12 correct on this quiz.

I do believe the one you have listed as "Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin", should actually be, "Thank you, for lettin' me, be myself, again."
Actually... "Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin" is correct. It was spelled that way on purpose.
There was no error (this time), this was the was the song title was spelled.

You got 11 out of 12. I listen to all ears of music from the RnR Era. The only thing I'll listen to from before that era is stuff by Son House and Charlie Patton and those early Blues performers.

12/12. Easy. My favorite song is "Bridge Over Troubled Water".
Such a beautiful piece.
I still wonder where they got their cool percussion ideas.
The tire chains on The Boxer, the piano bench on Cecilia, etc.

AAAGGGHHH! Top 40 and collecting music in general being my life long hobby/passion, I figured I'd breeze through and ace this one.......UNTIL I GOT TO #5- "Ain't No Mountain High Enough". That was Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell. WHAT! Wadda ya mean Aretha, Tina or Diana? Could have been any one of them! I took a wild guess with Aretha and blew my ace. Bummer! :(

was my first wrong also.... the problem with pre-1970s even through the 70's, most songs were written and scored by other than the singer... thus many popular songs were judged as hits under multiple singers so although we may remember one specific singer easy to have up to a dozen singers release with half of them considered to be hits

QazWiz MrBill 18 months ago
yeah #7 was new, but #11 sounded familiar yet the names UGH! but thinking about it, i vaguely remembered "Vanity Faire" being a magazine and guessed a group might respell a familiar (Beetle did great for The Beatles)
