The Top Ten

1 ABC - Jackson 5 ABC - Jackson 5

11-year old Michael reached #5 on the Billboard chart with the album this was on, although he was part of a band that was made up of his older brothers. Pretty respectable, considering he was just a kid, and at that time, the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, the Doors, and many other luminaries of musical history were also on the charts at the same time.
