Do you remember who sang the Top 10 songs of 1971?

There's not "One Bad Apple" in the bunch. Well, yes, there is.

Let's rewind the radio dial back half a century. These ten tunes were the most popular songs of the 1971. When Billboard tallied its top hits at the end of the year, here is how they ranked, from "Joy to the World" to "Knock Three Times."

Most of these songs remain staples today. Odds are, MeTV fans love all of them. Let's see if you can match an artist to the singles!

  1. "Joy to the World"
  2. "Maggie May"
  3. "It's Too Late"
  4. "One Bad Apple"
  5. "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart"
  6. "Indian Reservation (The Lament of the Cherokee Reservation Indian)"
  7. "Go Away Little Girl"
  8. "Take Me Home, Country Roads"
  9. "Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)"
  10. "Knock Three Times"

You got 10 out of 10
Which tune is your favorite?
"Go Away Little Girl" by Steve Lawrence. The 1963 (#1) original that Donny Osmond copied 8 years later. Besides that one, "It's Too Late" by the great Carole King in her majestic and superb "Tapestry" album.

10/10. I remembered all these songs playing on the "AM only" dial on my car radio back then. Wait!! Did I say "dial" as in radio dial, and dial a phone? Now I guess I really am a fossil...

When I was about six years old, I was in children's church in front of the congregation when the pastor asked us who was Jeremiah ? My response , Jeremiah was a Bullfrog ! To this day I have never lived it down!

10/10. I thought “How Can You Mend a Broken Heart” came out in the Sixties.
