Here are all the No1 records from the year 1975 from the US charts of that year. It really is a who's who of 70s music, and turn it up really loud and enjoy. We continue with March of that year.


Have You Never Been Mellow by Olivia Newton John

From the album of the same name, and won Olivia a Grammy for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance, but although released as a single in the UK it never reached the charts. The song was written by John Farrer who was once a member of the Shadows.

Olivia  was also in a film this year called "The Other Side Of The Mountain", all about a female skiing champion is paralyzed in a tragic skiing accident. Her girlfriend is taken out of competition when she contracts polio.

Of course in 70s music Olivia would have a lot more hits on the way.
