For those of you who have been reading my blog, I have not given up on my weekly segment of The Hits from Coast to Coast.  It has been on hiatus for the past few weeks due to all the stuff I have had going on.  I haven’t had the time to devote to but it is back and better than ever.  Well, actually it is about the same but it is back.

This week I have thrown my dart and landed on a date in a time that I did not exist.  So put your time traveling shoes and climb inside the time traveling phone booth we are heading to the date September 26, 1970. 

Let’s see what else was happening on this day back in 1976.  Judy Rankin wins LPGA Lincoln-Mercury golf opening.  Wow, that is more than exciting.   Hmm…let’s see anything else exciting happen on this day …. According to the archives, nothing else was happening on this day in 1970, but it was very exciting for other years in history but we aren’t traveling to those so we will move on.

This week on the countdown are top ten are……………………………………..

#10 25 or 6 to 4 by Chicago
#9 (I know) I’m Losing You by Rare Earth
#8 Snow Bird by Anne Murray
#7 Candida by Dawn
#6 Cracklin’ Rosie by Neil Diamond
#5 Julie, Do Ya Love Me by Bobby Sherman
#4 Patches by Clarence Carter
#3 Lookin’ Out My Backdoor by Credence Clearwater Revival
#2 War by Edwin Starr

And the # 1 hit for this day back in 1970 was

Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Diana Ross

The number one song is somewhat of a let down compaired to the other songs that were in the top ten, but at least I knew almost all the songs this week.

    Well, let’s see here. I absolutely loathe Diana Ross. Love the Chicago track. I think my favorite song from this countdown is Losing You but not Rare Earth’s version, Rod Stewart’s is waaaaaaay better.
