Hot 100 Chart 1977-03-19

On Saturday, 3/19/1977 (34 years ago) the Top 10 songs in the USA were:

    1 Love Theme From 'A Star Is Born' (Evergreen) - Barbra Streisand
    2 Fly Like An Eagle - Steve Miller Band
    3 Rich Girl - Hall and Oates
    4 Night Moves - Bob Seger
    5 Dancing Queen - ABBA
    6 I Like Dreamin' - Kenny Nolan
    7 Torn Between Two Lovers - Mary MacGregor
    8 Don't Give Up On Us - David Soul
    9 Don't Leave Me This Way - Thelma Houston
  10 Go Your Own Way - Fleetwood Mac

Wow, no wonder I hated AM radio in 1977! I only own 3 of these 10 songs (can you guess which?). On the other hand, bands like Marshall Tucker Band (Heard It In A Love Song), Firefall (Cinderella), Foreigner (Feels Like The First Time), Aerosmith (Back In The Saddle), ZZ Top (Arrested for Driving While Blind) and The Kinks (Sleepwalker) were releasing songs around this time, so not all was lost.

Meanwhile, today's image is quite loosely inspired by song #10.  This photo is almost as old as the song, originally shot on slide, and converted to digital by ScanCafe....
