Do you remember who sang the biggest hits of 1970?

"Thank You (Faplayyin Are Quiz Agin)"

 

The radio today sounds much different than it did 51 years ago. (Unless you're listening to MeTVFM, of course.) But there was still a striking variety at the top of the charts in 1970.

Gentle folk tunes, funky soul, boogying rock, comedic country — there was something for everybody.

Below, you will find a dozen of the biggest singles from 1970. All of them placed in Billboard's Top 20 songs of the year. They may have been massive hits, but it takes a true music guru to get 8/12 correct on this quiz.

I do believe the one you have listed as "Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin", should actually be, "Thank you, for lettin' me, be myself, again."
Actually... "Thank You Falettinme Be Mice Elf Agin" is correct. It was spelled that way on purpose.

You got 11 out of 12. I listen to all ears of music from the RnR Era. The only thing I'll listen to from before that era is stuff by Son House and Charlie Patton and those early Blues performers.
