Hot 100 Chart 1971-03-20

On 3/20/1971 (40 years ago!) the Top 10 songs in the USA were:

  1. Me And Bobby McGee - Janis Joplin
  2. She's A Lady - Tom Jones
  3. Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me) - Temptations
  4. One Bad Apple - Osmonds
  5. For All We Know - Carpenters
  6. Proud Mary - Ike & Tina Turner
  7. Doesn't Somebody Want To Be Wanted - Partridge Family
  8. What's Going On - Marvin Gaye
  9. Help Me Make It Though The Night - Sammi Smith
  10. If You Could Read My Mind - Gordon Lightfoot
An up and down week, with some of the top songs of all time (Numbers 1,3,6 and 8) intermingled with some rather forgettable ones. I mean, who remembers Partriadge Family, beyond "I Think I Love You"? And who even wants to remember Tom Jones?
