Following on from @Bobby Morrow 's excellent threads Every UK #1 Single Of 1972 Discussion Thread and Every UK #1 Single Of 1973 Discussion Thread we move forward to 1974. 1974 was the year that I got into music, buying several singles and saving up for my first LP. Top Of The Pops (TOTPs) became my favourite program and Tom Browne's Top Twenty chart countdown on Sunday nights, essential listening. 1974 was also the year I started buying Record Mirror, and I'm certain that some of the chart scans will bring back many fond memories for me, and hopefully many others too. The first number one of 1974, was Slade's Merry Xmas Everybody, and the scan below shows the last of the five weeks that it held the top spot. As Merry Xmas Everybody has been discussed, and Bobby already posted record and sleeve scans, for anyone that missed them, the Slade Christmas single thread started on this page: Every UK #1 Single Of 1973 Discussion Thread Enjoy!
