Hot 100 Chart 1974-03-23

Last Wednesday, I listed the Top 10 songs in the country on 3/16/1974. Thirty-Seven years ago today (3/23/1974), there were a few changes from the prior week. Cher’s Dark Lady jumped from #3 to #1, bumping the irritating Seasons In The Sun . There were 3 new songs in the Top 10:


 I don't remember Eres Tu, but I have the other two.....

Dropping out of the Top 10: Rock On - David Essex (#12), The Way We Were - Barbra Streisand (#13), Spiders And Snakes - Jim Stafford (#21).

Notable debuts this week?

Ten songs made their debut, but the highest open was #81, The Payback – James Brown (which peaked at #26). The only other notable newbies (IMHO) were The Stylistics You Make Me Feel Brand New (which peaked at #2) and Marvin Hamlisch’s The Entertainer (which peaked at #3). The others failed to break the Top 40.


The image today doesn't have anything to do with the music (a real trend lately). But at least it’s not a repost. This one was taken last spring, but has been languishing on my hard drive since.
