Who sang these 4th of July super hits of the 1970s?

Do you remember these summer songs of the Seventies?

Hot dogs, fireworks, flags and disco. Those were the key ingredients for most barbecues in the 1970s.

Well, dig out your portable 8-track players, because we're digging through the top hits of Seventies summers.

The following ten songs were No. 1 on the charts on the Fourth of July that decade. See how many you can remember!
  1. This duo sang "Love Will Keep Us Together," the No. 1 song on the 4th of July in 1975.
  2. This one-hit-wonder took "Afternoon Delight" to the top of the charts for the Bicentennial in '76.
  3. This Gibb dominated the pop charts in July of '78 with his "Shadow Dancing."
  4. Her massive hit "It's Too Late" was No. 1 on the Fourth in 1971.
  5. His soulful classic "Lean on Me" topped the charts on the Fourth in '72.
  6. This family band topped the charts in July of '70 with "The Love You Save."
  7. This former Beatles collaborator rocketed to No. 1 on July 4, 1973, with "Will It Go Round in Circles."
  8. Her disco jam "Ring My Bell" boogied to No. 1 on the Fourth of July in '79.
  9. This act went to No. 1 in July of '77 with "Undercover Angel" — and later wrote loads of songs for the Muppet Babies.
  10. This soul group was No. 1 on the Fourth of July in 1974 with "Rock the Boat."

How about "Saturday in the Park, think it was the fourth of July..." by Chicago!

You don't understand the list. It's not about songs MENTIONING the Fourth of July, it's about songs that WERE NUMBER ONE ON the Fourth of July, and "Saturday, In the Park" only reached #3.

8/10. Not bad for an older hippie.
HAPPY 4TH EVERYBODY.

10/10. Very easy for a record buff like myself; I still have the vinyl singles of #s 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9; #s 4 and 8 are now locked up inside my newly-restored 1976 Seeburg "sunstar" jukebox.

But #9 holds some special memories for me - three days later, on July 7, 1977 at 7:17 P.M., WVIC in Lansing, Michigan had just finished playing "Undercover Angel" and I heard myself on the radio for the very first time, as well as participating in a contest (I was then 15). The grand prize was an above-ground swimming pool if you could guess how high up a diver was from the pool. I guessed 45 feet but it turned out to be *80* feet - but I won an "original rock" T-shirt, which I *still* have to this day; to be sure, it's worth much money now, especially since WVIC is *no longer* (WVIC-AM, 730, is now Sports/Talk WVFN, "The Fan," and WVIC-FM, 94.9, is now Lansing's Classic Rock, WMMQ).

I also didn't like "Undercover Angel" at first, but after I heard myself on the radio and won the T-shirt, I bought the 45 about a week later. What memories!
