October 1974

Continuing the series, (Jan, Feb, Mar ,Apr, June, July, Aug, Sep):

October 1974... 40 years ago this month.  The NFL Season was in full swing, as the Pittsburgh Steelers started a winning streak that turned a 1-1-1 start into 6-1-1.  On their way to a 10-3-1 season, and the first of their Super Bowl wins.

As for singles, 3 songs topped the charts in (the 4 weeks) of October 1974:
  • I Honestly Love You - Olivia Newton John (10/5/74 & 10/12/74)
  • Nothing From Nothing - Billy Preston (10/19/74)
  • Then Came You Dionne Warwick (10/26/74)

A few really good songs made their Top 40 chart debuts, but no #1's.  Notables (IMHO) include:
