This week in music: 1972

(KFVS) -

Let's take a trip back in time to see what folks were listening to on the radio some 43 years ago.

Billboard magazine had these songs at the top of the music charts for this week in 1972.

At number five was "Too Late To Turn Back Now" by The Cornelius Brothers and Sister Rose.

Bill Withers was leaning on the number four spot with his hit "Lean On Me."

"Outa-Space," a Billy Preston instrumental, was at number three.

Sammy Davis Jr. was at number two with "The Candy Man." The song was from the movie "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" and was the biggest hit of Davis' legendary career.

And topping the charts was Neil Diamond with "Song Sung Blue." It was his second number one hit after "Cracklin' Rosie" back in 1970.
