12/12 I remembered some because they are on my "songs I absolutely hate and I hope I NEVER hear them again" list. I'll never ever forget "Ma Belle Amie'....no matter how hard I try.......and this quiz sure didn't help.

10 out of 12. Not bad considering I was only 7 years old in 1970. But I love music. Exposed 2 country (especially old school) from my father. Exposed to Big Band and Pop from my mother. 80's music is the best though!!!

12/12. Interesting that you included two Dutch acts, Tee-Set and Shocking Blue. Another Dutch group, the George Baker selection, had their big hit the same year ("Little Green Bag").

I have never heard of any of these songs. No mention of THE NUGE songs or even Edgar Winter's Frankenstein. BOO!

Frankenstein by the Edgar WInter Group came out in 1973 and it was a #1 song for them
