This week in music: 1974

(KFVS) -

Let's take a trip down our music memory lane.

Billboard Magazine had these songs at the top of the Hot 100 on this week in 1974.

At number 5 was Dave Loggins with "Please Come to Boston," a song covered by recording artists like Tammy Wynette, Jimmy Buffett, Kenny Chesney and many others.

Elton John was holding down the number 4 spot with "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me."

At number 3 was John Denver with "Annie's Song (You Fill Up My Senses)." Denver wrote and recorded the song as a tribute to his wife at the time.

The British group Paper Lace checked in at number two with "The Night Chicago Died," a song about a shootout between police and gangsters tied to Al Capone.

And in the top spot was "Feel Like Makin' Love" by Roberta Flack. It was Flack's third number one hit following "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" and "Killing Me Softly with his Song."
