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:
- Let It Be - The Beatles #6
- Instant Karma (We All Shine On) John Lennon (#4)
- Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes - Edison Lighthouse (#8)
- Didn't I (Blow Your Mind This Time) - Delfonics (#10)
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?
