Top 10 this week in 1970

26 May 2021 – RESULTS UPDATE

Thanks for your responses to yesterday’s poll (below) about the Top 10 songs from this week in 1970. It seems you struggled with that one, saying there were so many good choices!

Based on your comments, we’ll rank two songs equal first: Spirit in the Sky and A Little Ray of Sunshine. After that was Kentucky Rain. Honourable mentions go to Let it Be, Love Grows (Where My Rosemary Goes), Travelin’ Band / Who’ll Stop the Rain and, for novelty value, Tennessee Bird Walk .

Thanks for taking part! We’ll select a Top 10 from another year next week and ask you again about your favourites.
