Dawn of a Decade - 1970


Recommended Posts

Michael Jackson became a superstar...& he looked natural & endearing, Diana Ross on her own, War! What is it good for!, hello Karen Carpenter, hello David Cassidy, goodbye Simon & Garfunkel, goodbye Beatles...

Remember any of 'em?...

What a year for The Jackson 5! This is the first year music really registered with me so these are all songs I knew from their original time on the radio and not as oldies. I'll have to see how many on the British ones I know!

Lee Marvin number 1 for three weeks!?! Okay there are other songs I've never heard of on the British chart but there are also some great ones on there.

Several made the One Hit Wonders thread ;)

Hmm....No Beatles.  Were the Beatles bigger in America than they were at home? Maybe they released more singles here than they did in the mother country....I dunno. I'll have to check stats... :)

Who the hell is Dana ? :lol:....

Also am i safe to assume that the 1970 World Cup Squad is a one hit wonder ?

 

 

 

I was thinking that was the British version of the Superbowl Shuffle, which at least in Illinois where I lived at the time, was all over the place, radio and TV.

Dana won the Eurovision song contest for Ireland way back then!

The 1970 squad were a one hit wonder. Unfortunately they started a trend for football teams to record (usually dire) records.

In the days when the Eurovision Song Contest meant something, Ireland realised that that entering a pretty 18 year old girl in a short skirt might just be a good tactic.

Indeed .... Seems Sweden figured that out as well..... Kudos to Great Britain for making Edison Lighthouse for 5 weeks also ... Love that song !!!
