1975 Top Ten Songs and Musical Influences

The top songs of 1975 didn't really reflect the popular music of the time. Funk was in full swing and disco was starting to make its mark. Black artists were beginning to cross over on the music charts. Country music, especially country rock style, was also gaining in popularity.

The 70s top ten songs of 1975 did reflect the rising popularity of country music, however. Three of the top ten 70s songs in 1975 were by country artists. The David Bowie classic rock song "Fame" made the top ten songs for 1975. John Denver also had a top ten hit in 1975 for the second year in a row. Elton John also had another top ten hit song in 1975.

      Hey. thanks everyone.

      Lounn, I also ashamedly admit to enjoying some Captain & Tennille and John Dever songs. And, yeah, Muskrat Love, what were they thinking?

      DJFunktual, I agree that Bowie is cool. Fame is probably my favorite Bowie song.

      Grill'n guy, Frankie Valli's voice is spectacular. I had forgotten all about this song, and I always loved it. I don't know why, but seriously, My Eyes Adored You still brings tears to my eyes. It's so cool that you have such a great memory attached to his songs. I'll look out for Jersey Boys. Thanks for the info.

      Ya gotta love Frankie Valli. First LP I purchased with my own money, big deal for a kid in my day, Golden Hits of the 4 Seasons. My first CD order included Frankie Valli and the 4 Seasons Greatest Hits. If "Jersey Boys" comes to a playhouse near you, do not miss it.

      Great Hub, Great Memories. Thumbs Up

      ah, john denver and captain and tenille. love this stuff. I do have to claim exception to "Muskrat Love", but even that has some value now as a song to torture others with.

      it was a great year. another excellent hub and upthumb from me. :)
