1970s Music Quiz – Can You Name the Artists?

In this quiz you are given 10 song titles from the 1970s pop charts, your task is to match them with the original artist or artists.

1970s Music Scene

1970 started with the Beatles breakup. But instead of leaving a vacuum on the music scene, new and bold music acts unfolded.

David Bowie and Marc Bolan introduced glam rock in the early seventies, a style with makeup, platform shoes, extravaganza costumes, and glitter.

As a great contrast to the pop and rock music Beatles represented, The Sex Pistols and The Clash gave birth to the British Punk Music. Between 1977-1979 Sex Pistols had six hits on British Top 10.

This decade also saw the rise of hard rock and disco music. Progressive rock with bands like Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart, and Blood, Sweat and Tears also had many followers during the seventies.

But pop and soft rock was still popular and saw groups like the Carpenters, the Jackson 5, the Osmonds, Hall & Oates, Bread, Captain & Tennille, Tony Orlando and Dawn, and Bay City Rollers top the charts in United States and internationally.

The Most Popular Song in 1970s

Mull of Kintyre with Wings sold more than 2 million copies in U.K. and spent 9 weeks as No. 1 on the charts. In United States, Debby Boone spent 10 weeks as No. 1 with You Light Up My Life and sold more than 4 million copies.
