Revised listEdit

Due to an error regarding "Some Kind of Wonderful" by Grand Funk being placed higher at #6, causing that song and the other songs that were placed between 6 and 73 being moved down one position, and some songs being placed in different positions. As a result, Billboard made an updated version of their Year End songs of 1975.[3][circular reference][4]
