During the first half of the 1970’s Tony Orlando and Dawn were a constant hit machine with their adult contemporary -inoffensive -light weight music. It boggles my mind to think this single sold 6 million copies. It wasn’t only popular in the US but all over the world. Looking at the #1 hits in 1971 a very odd year- some gems and some garbage. “Knock Three Times” is far from the worst #1 hit–it would hit rock bottom with the song which replaced it on top. In comparison “Knock Three Times” isn’t so bad.
