    • Yes I agree.. we have talked about it before how the soul music was so great in the late 60’s until disco took over… a great period for music.

  1. Not bad! Whereas last week I recognized about half, this week I recognize almost all. Ah, Bobby Sherman, I remember what a crush I had on him. I had to look up that Simon & Garfunkel song to remember it. What a great intro, and those pan pipes really elevate the song.

    • I remember as a kid how all the girls were in love with Bobby Sherman.. funny how short term these teen idols time at the top lasts- until they are replaced by someone else.. there always seems to be one.

  2. I remember religiously following the weekly charts back then (still do actually), and, though I liked it a lot, I resented that “I’ll Be There” kept the Carpenters’ “We’ve Only Just Begun” from the top spot.

  3. Wow. Good list but all over the place, huh? Btw, there was soul music in the mid-seventies that y’all probably never heard. It wasn’t played on mainstream radio, just “soul” stations like WILD in Boston where I heard it.

  4. You’re putting me on the spot but for starters maybe “Pickin Wild Mountain Berries” by Peggy Scott and JoJo Benson. It was a cover. And how about “Your Kiss is Sweet” by Sareeta Wright (Stevie Wonder’s ex-wife).
