Throwback Thursday: 1974

This was the year that my Dad and mother- and father-in-law graduated from High School.

10. The Main Ingredient - Just Don't Want to Be Lonely
9. Three Dog Night - The Show Must Go On
8. Mike Oldfield - Tubular Bells
7. Blue Swede - Hooked On a Feeling
6. Ray Stevens - The Streak
5. Jackson 5 - Dancing Machine

There's a lot of interesting and fantastic music on the Top Ten this week/year. But you really can't beat this, can you? It seems like just another song of it's era until Michael starts dancing. And yeah, the song is lip synched. But they all were back then. Most of the videos of "performances" of the songs on this list were lip synch performances. But you know what you can't lip synch? Those moves.

4. Gladys Knight and the Pips - Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me
3. Elton John - Bennie and the Jets
2. MFSB featuring Three Degrees - TSOP (The Sound of Philadelphia)
1. Grand Funk - The Loco-Motion
