7/10. Some of the best songs ever released were soul songs from the 70s.

I'm 71 and I still play mostly 70s r&b in my car and on my headphones. I can't get away from my soul music!

Back in the '70's when I was in high school, I wasn't into any music except (real) classical and music I played in the marching band such as Capriccio Italien. Sorry I looked at the quiz and recognized NOTHING!

7/10. Didn't know the birds made an unintentional contribution to Loving You...and I must admit I knew Eddie Kendricks recorded Keep On Truckin' LONG before I knew he was one of the Temptations!

Here's how I got that one. Temptations released "Papa was a Rolling Stone" in 1972. I didn't hear his voice in that because every member says a lyric. The very next year (1973) he had his monster hit "Keep On Truckin'" followed with "Boogie Down"

Fun fact: of the first five Billboard #1 singles with three-letter titles(stretching almost 25 years), three had Michael Jackson as lead vocalist (ABC, Ben and Bad).
