U.K. Number Ones 1970-1979

This list of number one singles is based on charts published in New Muscial Express. The dates given are for publication of the magazine - the Saturday following the actual publication on a Wednesday. The chart would therefore be the current one at the time of going to press.

The New Muscial Express has been used as it has provided the most consistent charts since the magazine first published a British "Hit Parade" in 1952.
