1977 in Music

My next posts will focus on the year 1977. Below are popular songs from that year. They are in no particular order, but they were all at the top of the charts in 1977; Debbie Boone’s You Light Up My Life being the best selling single of the year. And as I mentioned in my previous post, Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours was the Album of the Year.

Click on the song names, and if I was able to locate a performance, movie clip, or something about that song, you’ll be directed to it.

Although I was only 9 years old, I remember these songs as if I heard them yesterday. And because I am a music freak, I actually did listen to some of them yesterday, on purpose!
