Hot 100 Chart 1970-03-21

Last Monday, I listed the Top 10 songs in the country on 3/14/1970.  Forty-One years ago today (3/21/1970), there were a few changes from the prior week.  Most notably The chart debut of a little song called "Let It Be" by a obscure group called the Beatles. Let it be made it's chart debut at #6, which is pretty ompressive, IMHO.  The newcomers to the Top 10 that week:

Meanwhile, Bridge Over Troubled Water stayed at #1, part of a 7 week run atop the charts.  It was eventually knocked off by Let It Be (no surprise there), but not until 4/11/1970.

Dropping out of the Top 10 this week were:  Travellin' Band - CCR, Ma Belle Amie - Tee Set, Thank You (Fallettinme Be Mice Elf Agin) - Sly & The Family Stone, Hey There Lonely Girl - Eddie Holman.

There were a whopping 16 songs debutting on the Hot 100 on 3/21/1970.  Beside Let It Be, other notables were:  American Woman - Guess Who (#46), and Hitchin' A Ride - Vanity Fare (#93)

The image today doesn't have anything to do with the music, but does relate to the time of year.  This was shot 3/28/2004, not quite 7 years ago.  Wonder if the dogwoods will be in bloom a week from today?
