Pick: Which song would you listen to on the radio in 1974?

Time to get funky. Or not. It's your choice!

But in 1974, funk music reigned supreme on the radio as disco was heating up. Elsewhere, every former Beatle except George scored a No. 1 hit. Soft-rock offers a breezy alternative. And, yes, some classic rock scraped its way to the top of the charts.

Below, you will find dozens of No. 1 hits from '74. A whopping 36 different songs hit No. 1 — a record. 

In short — there were a ton of options. Pretend you are driving in a car (a giant, American-made land yacht, of course) in 1974. You are scanning through the radio dial. What would YOU listen to?
