Top 10 this week in 1974

23 June 2021 – RESULTS UPDATE

Thanks for your responses to yesterday’s poll (below) about the Top 10 songs from this week in 1974.

And the winner is… overwhelmingly… Evie (Pts 1, 2 & 3) by Stevie Wright! It was a mile in front of second-placed The Loco-Motion by Grand Funk Railroad.

Back behind them were Devil Gate Drive by Suzi Quatro, Seasons in the Sun by Terry Jacks and Hooked on a Feeling by Blue Swede. An Honorable Mention goes to The Air That I Breathe by The Hollies.

Click on the song titles to hear them.

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