Hot 100 Chart 1974-03-30 - and Happy Birthday Wishes!

On Saturday, 3/30/1974 (37 years ago) the Top 10 songs in the USA were:

    1 Sunshine On My Shoulders - John Denver (up from #3)
    2 Hooked On A Feelin' - Bkue Swede (rocketing up from #7)
    3 Seasons In The Sun - Terry Jacks (down from #2)
    4 Bennie And The Jets - Elton John (up from #6)
    5 Dark Lady - Cher (big drop from #1)
    6 Mockingbird - James Taylor and Carly Simon (down from #5)
    7 Jet - Paul McCartney (edging up from #8)
    8 Come And Get Your Love - Redbone (new Top 10, up from #11)
    9 Eres Tu (Touch The Wind) - Mocedades (holding steady)
   10 The Lord's Prayer - Sister Janet Mead (another newbie, up from #14)

Perhaps more inportant, today is my older daughter's birthday! 
Number one the week she was born:  Lean On Me by Club Nouveau.  A remake of the wonderful Bill Withers song that rather misses the mark

What songs from 3/28/1987 are on my ipod?  Only 4: Mandolin Rain - Brude Hornsby (#4), Livin' On A Prayer - Bon Jovi (#19)...  Plus Paul Simon's You Can Call Me Al (#92) and Boy In The Bubble (#100).

Today's photo is an nice spring shot, Redbud blossoms.  It's also an image of which my aforementioned daughter has a framed print.  Though she prefers it portrait orienation.
