Subject: In Other Words - 70's One Hit Wonders - Done.

Written By: mandamoo on 10/01/04 at 7:28 am

Haven't seen one of these in a while ! 

All of the songs, as the title suggests, are one hit wonders from the 70's - in other words. You need to translate the clues and determine the song title. Please give me that and the name of the artist who performed it. ;)

Good luck !
