  1. What a great Top 10 and so eclectic. I love The Lion Sleeps Tonight but then we have Led Zeppelin with Apollo’s “Joy”. This was the time when they used classical music but added a beat to it…not my fav. I had a smile on my face when Witch Woman was followed by “Without You”- one of my favourites. To end with the Carpenters seems fitting.


      1. Yes you are right…I guess that is what made the seventies…the seventies… and why the White Album is my favorite Beatle album…the variety
