Hits of 1975

What I'm Listening To

Another entry in my mini music challenge, here are my top ten hits of 1975...

All Around My Hat - Steeleye Span

Steeleye Span were like my first introduction to folk music with this song, and for that I will always love them dearly. It also gave the world Jed Thomas of The Fast Show's infamous All Around My A*** version which, as a 90s kid, was just about the funniest thing I had ever heard. :)


Would it even be a 70s hitlist without an ABBA track? It's really hard for me to pick favourites when it comes to ABBA because I love like 99.99% of their back catalogue. SOS is one of their very best though.

Blanket on the Ground - Billie Jo Spears

A country classic. <3 Billie Jo Spears scored a #6 UK hit with this one in 1975.

Rhinestone Cowboy - Glen Campbell

I know it's cheesy, but I love it anyway!

Jive Talkin' - Bee Gees

The band's so called comeback song, it also went on to feature on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.

Imagine - John Lennon

Imagine was recorded for the 1971 album and reached #6 when it was released as a UK single in 1975.

Bye, Bye, Baby (Baby Goodbye) - Bay City Rollers

Definitely one of their better tracks, probably because it was originally a 1965 hit for The Four Seasons...

Stand By Your Man - Tammy Wynette

Originally released in 1968, it only charted for the first time in the UK in 1975 when it peaked at #1.

No Woman, No Cry - Bob Marley and the Wailers

Until I looked the song up on Wikipedia for this blog post I thought this song was about life being easier without relationship problems. But apparently it's actually Jamaican patois for 'woman, don't cry'. Every day's a school day, huh!?

You Sexy Thing - Hot Chocolate

How can you not love it?

  1. I also made a video clip about the hits of the past generation, and made subtitles for them. Movavi's video converter helped me create them https://www.movavi.com/support/how-to/how-to-add-subtitles-to-mp4.html with which you can also convert your video to any format.


I love to hear from you, so please don't be shy!
