The Ultimate 1970s Top 40 Reshuffle

After two months of going through every top 40 hit of the 70s and deciding what is the best No.1, No.2, No.3 etc, we're down to the final 41. But in what order? That's what we've been deciding.

27. Barbra Streisand - Stoney End
28. Carpenters - We've Only Just Begun
29. Stevie Wonder - Higher Ground
30. Staple Singers - I'll Take You There
31. Undertones - Teenage Kicks
