number 31's are chock full of well-known and obscure greats. There are loads of forgotten gems, and I was expecting some heavy points for The Goodies version of Wild Thing. Hold me....tight! Not....quite...that...tight. Perfect. laugh.gif

Number 31s

This one was impossible for me! Needed at least 20. I even nearly had to omit the funniest novelty record of all time: Ray Stevens' In The Mood. Nothing funnier than chickens singing harmony. Nothing! ohmy.gif (if you don't know it, youtube and wait for 1:40 seconds in patiently) laugh.gif

+4 Carpenters - Sweet Sweet Smile
+3 After The Fire - One Rule For You
+2 Rubettes - Under One Roof
+1 Liverpool Express - Dreamin'

Just to show how varied the 70's genres were - the 40 in order: gorgeous laid-back soul/haunting Canadian folk tale/ showtune fabness/ disco-classical crossover/ west coast rock/ 50's revival rock n roll/ MOR countrypop/ Christian synthpop/ pro-gay ballad/ scouse pop

and that's just the ones I liked best...!
