My Top 12 Favourite Songs from 1971 (As inspired by 1971- Never a Dull Moment: Rock's Golden Year by David Hepworth)

Last month I had the opportunity to read and review 1971- Never a Dull Moment: Rock's Golden Year by David Hepworth. (To read my review click on the title link) I learned a lot about the early years of Rock and listened to some great music along with it. I thought it would be fun to share with my readers some of my favourite songs from that year.

Originally I had planned to share my top 5, but that would leave out too many. Instead here are my top 12 favourites, with one song representing each month of the year.

January: Your Song by Elton John

February: Just my Imagination by The Temptations

March: Black Dog by Led Zeppelin 

April: What's Going On by Marvin Gaye

May: Tiny Dancer by Elton John

June: Bridge Over the River Ash by Fairport Convention

July: Without You by Harry Nilsson 

August: What is Life by George Harrison 

September: Imagine by John Lennon

October: Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton 

November: Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin

December: American Pie by Don Mclean 

Honourable Mentions: Working Class Hero -John Lennon, Amazing Grace -Judy Collins, Rock & Roll Hoochie Koo -Johnny Winter, Acoustic Medley -Bob Marley, Jeepster -T. Rex, I am..I said -Neil Diamond, Will the Circle be Unbroken -Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Baba O'Riley by The Who, Like a Rolling Stone by Bob Dylan.
