The Top Ten – ‘74

Today is the 14th month of my blog!  My anniversary post is something different than the usual posts I write.

Okay, since it is my 14th month, I decided to go back to when I was 14 and see what was taking place on this date.

14 years old – 1974 – 07/13/74

It was a Saturday, our President was Richard Nixon and not a whole lot of anything was occurring!  I researched thinking there must be something interesting about this day back in 1974!

But there were no events of interest!

So, I have no topic to write about?

Okay, fine what about the music topping the charts that day?

I must admit – this is some great music!

For your viewing and listening pleasure, I present to you the top #10 songs in the USA that Saturday of many years ago –

1. Bo Donaldson & The Heywoods – Billy, Don’t Be A Hero

2. John Denver – Annie’s Song

3. George McCrae – Rock Your Baby

4. Gordon Lightfoot – Sundown

5. The Hues Corporation – Rock The Boat

6. Elton John – Don’t Let The Sun Go Down On Me

7. The Righteous Brothers – Rock And Roll Heaven

8. Gladys Knight and the Pips – On And On

9. The Hollies – The Air That I Breathe

10. Anne Murray – You Won’t See Me

Do you have a favorite?

Today is the 14th month of my blog!  My anniversary post is something different than the usual posts I write.

  1. Congratulations Terry 🙂
    My favourite is Elton John’s “don’t let the sun go down on me” because it’s one of “my songs” and also because I don’t know most of the others (but I will listen to them later on 😉 ) 🙂
    Summert of ’74 I was 11 and I have very good memories of it ; which happened to be the last one I was a child (next one I was trying to be very grown up because I had just met my to-be-husband who was 17 ) – crazy crazy crazy 😉

  2. Happy 14 months to you! I enjoy these anniversary blog posts! And I’m loving this music! In 1974, I was 7 so I was oblivious to anything around me. But I did know music thanks to my brother who was 9 years older, and these were some great songs! Have a beautiful day, dear Terry!

  3. I was 13 and not 14 til the end of September but I remember each of those gems, each inmeshed with a different memory of that so important time in life. Thank you and of course big congratulations on your 14 🙂

  4. George McCrae and Rock your Baby ~ remember dancing along at the disco.
    Wow, 1974, forty two years ago.
    Had just left school, and about to begin university in London.
    Seems an age ago, but loved the seventies.
    Great selection of tracks, lots of happy memories.
    Hope all is well with you.

  5. Elton John’s “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me,” is my favorite…by default. It’s a great song, regardless, but it’s the only one I know and like. I’ve heard “Rock the Boat” before but not my cup of tea. Congrats on 14 months! Gives me motivation to keep blogging so that I can reach that milestone one day. 😀
