Seventies Music Chart No1s of 1975 (US) August

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 August of that year.

Jive Talkin' by Bee Gees

It was four years since the last Bee Gees hit, and now they were back in the charts with this strange named record. The three brothers named the record Drive Talking, as the sound of their car was the inspiration to the record. The car when going across a certain bridge made the sound that you can hear all through this hit record.

They were also surprised to find out that Jive Talkin' was black slang for "Bullxxxxing", but never the less al three brothers decided to continue, and sent the records in a plain white envelope to the radio stations. This sparked an interest and the record began to get airplay.

Jive Talkin' would also later appear on the famous "Saturday Night Fever" LP. The big one in the hits of 70s music.

Lyrics to "Jive Talkin' "

Reynolds actually left the group in 1972, but the groups name remained unchanged as Alan Dennison replaced him. The group members actually performed together in the 1960s under a different name, and in the 70ds music charts had small er hits at the beginning of the 1970s. This song gave them a Gold disc that year.

Get Down Tonight by KC and The Sunshine Band

About Me

I am one of those baby boomer's, who had the pleasure, and the FUN to grow up in the 1970s. The 70s music was so diverse, and the charts were for everyone from 8 to 80. That was when POP was fun, and the top forty really meant something as it was a shared experience. I have tried in this site to bring back the memories of the 70s, not just the pure pop, but also the heavy guys like Floyd and Black Sabbath. Everything had a place in the music of the 70s, and everything has a memory for one of us 1970s boomers.
