Hear them all on my site - http://top100singles.blogspot.com/2011/04/my-top-singles-of-1971.html
I've added an AMR Top Singles of 1971 list to my site.

Hear them all here - http://top100singles.blogspot.com/2011/08/amr-top-singles-of-1971.html
You're almost done! Next is 1970.
Yeah. Cheers for the "encouragement".
No worries mate.
What would be helpful is feedback, especially from people who were music buyers and/or radio listeners in the 1970s and 1980s. Feedback about whether the songs on my site are the most appropriate/preferred versions or not, eg. the ones played on the radio or featured on the single release, would be greatly appreciated.
I do have feedback for a song.

Do you know the song From This Moment On by Shania Twain.

It's not the original song, It sounds more like a duet to me.


The original version is an uncredited duet (with Bryan White). I chose it over the single mix because I think it's better. Both are featured on the Australian CD single.
In an attempt to determine the site members' favourite AMR/ARIA Top 100 charting songs of each year (and eventually of all time), I'd like to start calculating scores for every song from submitted lists. Simply post an ordered list of any size you like, containing only songs from the eligible songs list below. Your list can be changed at any time.

A song is only eligible for one yearly list and it is always the year in which the song debuted in the AMR/ARIA Top 100 Singles chart with the following exceptions...

- If the song debuted more than 2 years after release then the release year is chosen.
- If the song does not enter the Top 50 in its first chart run but re-enters the charts the following year and makes the Top 50 then that year is chosen.

Wouldn't feel too bad about having so few songs in this or any of the 70s charts Grant - they're all top quality.

1971 is before I was born too but I was exposed to a lot of this music by my father as well as a period listening to golden oldie radio stations.
