Top Ten Tunes- 1976

Let me introduce you to a new weekly music feature here at Just Another Blog from a Woman. Every Friday I’m going to post a top ten list of songs from a single year, starting from 1976 through to the present year. Why start from 1976, you ask? Well, that’s the year I was born and I had to find a way to make this all about me, me, me. However, as quite a few of you are probably around my age (and even if you’re not), I’m hoping all you music lovers will appreciate some of the tunes I throw your way.


A few people taking advantage of the heatwave of 1976

So, starting with the year where we had the worst drought on record in the UK, the first concorde flight took place, rioting started in Notting Hill, the Cod Wars happened and the film Rocky was released. Oh yeah and yours truly was born (the most significant event quite frankly). Here we have my personal top ten songs from 1976 (in no particular order).


There’s a Spotify list at the end of the post as per.

  1. Play That Funky Music by Wild Cherry


2. I Wish by Stevie Wonder


3. Golden Years by David Bowie


4. Jolene by Dolly Parton

5. December ’63 (Oh, What a Night) by the Four Seasons


6. Dancing Queen by Abba


7. Young Hearts Run Free by Candi Staton


8. Love and Affection by Joan Armatrading


9. Pissing in a River by Patti Smith


10. Somebody to Love by Queen

Let me know which is your favourite. Mine’s got to be Queen. See you next week for 1977.
