Image result for AMERICA A HORSE WITH NO NAME IMAGES

This weeks American Top 40 replay on the 70’s on 7- is from the week of April 1, 1972. Odd that Neil Young is at #2 with Heart of Gold- while the Neil Young sounding “Horse With No Name” is at #1. Of course being 1971 Donny Osmond pollutes the chart at #3 and The Osmonds at #18. Not an exceptional week but not a bad one either.

  1. Not bad at all. I had the Joe Tex single at my home…don’t know where it came from…I remember the “Dial Records” label. I didn’t know the America song and Neil Young was on the charts at the same time…much less one and two.

  2. Since I saw the list above, I have been downloading some Bread songs which I haven’t heard in eons. I already had ‘The Goodbye Girl’ (which is also a great movie by the way), but I’d forgotten of ‘If’, ‘Aubrey’ and ‘Everything I own’. I would hazard a guess you’re not a big fan of ‘Bread’. But it’s just an inkling..

  3. Couldn’t stand the Osmonds or Jackson, I remember being amused by the Wings offering, I thought it was clunky. And America! Surely, if you’d ridden a horse that long with no name – you’d give it one 🙂 Loved Young’s song, and Nilsson’s, T-rex, I was studying at high school at the time, so it filled the gaps.
