1970s Top 40 Rate

Number 6s

Here we go again. We've done the 80s where A-Ha's Take On Me was declared the Ultimate 80s Top 40 hit. Now we move on to the 70s - a decade which, arguably, saw the most eclectic range of musical styles gracing the charts. The 70s had it all - glam, disco, punk, new wave, country, funk, rock, pop, soul, electric, novelty, MOR, eurotrash and future Yewtree disgraced stars.

Hopefully, you should know the drill by now, but if not - Below is a chronological list of all the singles which peaked at No.6 in the UK during the 1970s. Rate your faves, and the winner will go through to the final Ultimate Top 40 (where it will join the best No.1, No.2 etc).
