This is a '''list of [[musical artist]]s''' whose one hit came out in the '''1970s'''.


[[File:Tony Burrows Caravan XV 3777f.jpg|thumb|150px|right|Tony Burrows in 2008.  He was a member of several one-hit wonder bands, including [[Edison Lighthouse]], [[White Plains (band)|White Plains]], [[The Pipkins]], [[Brotherhood Of Man|The Brotherhood of Man]] and [[The First Class]].]]

The list contains recording artists who reached the [[Top 40]] of the U.S. pop chart (the [[Billboard Hot 100|''Billboard'' Hot 100]], unless otherwise noted) with just one single.


Artists in ''italics'' have only one Top 40 hit, but either

*had other songs chart on genre-specific charts 

*have had success and influence within their genre or the annals of popular music and/or 

**a long-lasting and devoted cult following

**wider success in other fields of the music industry 

*are a non-American act who have had wider success in their homeland


A chart position with an "X" next to it indicates a song that charted only on the [[Christmas music]] charts. For most of the 1970s, ''Billboard'' summarily disqualified all Christmas songs from the Hot 100, charting them separately. Such songs are only listed here if they also charted somewhere in the top 40 of a contemporary national pop chart, such as ''[[Cashbox (magazine)|Cashbox]]'' or ''[[Record World]]'', and thus would have reached the top 40 of the Hot 100 had they been counted as any other single.

Additional notes

*'''J1''' {{Note|note_bom1}} {{Note|note_bom2}} Despite the fact that The Brotherhood of Man (1969–72) and the similarly named Brotherhood of Man (no [[article (grammar)|article]], 1973–present) had no personnel in common other than producer/founder [[Tony Hiller]], some sources list the two bands as two different lineups of the same band.

*'''J2''' {{Note|note_runt}} One-hit wonder status unclear. Runt is sometimes regarded as a three-piece band featuring [[Todd Rundgren]] — but all reissues of their work credit Rundgren, and not Runt, as the artist. Runt is therefore usually regarded not as a band, but as a pseudonym for Rundgren. Regardless, under his own name, Rundgren had several top 40 hits. (Rundgren's collaborators on the record, [[Hunt Sales|Hunt]] and [[Tony Sales]], later charted internationally with "[[Lust for Life (Iggy Pop song)|Lust for Life]]," a record credited solely to [[Iggy Pop]].)

*'''J3''' {{Note|note_cdns1}} {{Note|note_cdns2}} Spoken-word radio commentary, not originally intended for release as a single. Gordon Sinclair originally wrote and read the commentary in 1973; Byron MacGregor reread Sinclair's script (without Sinclair's permission) and released it as a single, prompting Sinclair to release the original as a single as well.

*'''J4''' {{Note|note_mtv}} This song's video was the first ever aired on America's [[MTV]].
