Top Songs of 1975

By | Jun 14, 2008

While I was watching my son’s high school graduation I thought back on mine many years ago in 1976. Since graduation is at mid year, many of the songs of my prom and graduation were songs of 1975. The 6th biggest Billboard song of 1975 was Glen Campbell and the Rhinestone Cowboy.

At number 5 was Neil Sedaka’s Bad Blood. The song written by Neil Sedaka and Phil Cody with a background vocal by Elton John reached number 1 in October remaining there for three weeks.

Tony Orlando and Dawn had the number 4 song of the year with He Don’t Love You Like I Love You.

Elton John had a big year in 1975 with three of the top 11 songs. The highest ranked of these was Island Girl from his number 1 Album Rock of the Westies.

At number 2 was the disco flavored Fly Robin Fly by the German group Silver Convention. It was the first song by a German pop group to reach Number 1 in the US.

And rounding out the list was Love Will Keep Us Together by the husband and wife team, Captain and Tennille and written by Neil Sedaka and his songwriting partner Howard Greenfield.
