BILLBOARD TOP 40 HITS 1971: #92: ‘NEVER CAN SAY GOODBYE’-ISAAC HAYES

Billboard Top 40 Hits 1971: #92: ‘Never Can Say Goodbye’- Isaac Hayes. May 15, 1971.

  • Single: ‘Never Can Say Goodbye’- Isaac Hayes
  • Record Company- Enterprise
  • Genre: Soul

  • B-side:’I Can’t Help It [If I’m Still In Love With You’]

First a big hit -#2 for the Jackson 5 in 1971- and Gloria Gaynor a few years later with a disco version took it to the Top 10- “Never Can Say Goodbye’ has been a much covered song over the years. Isaac Hayes always seemed to be able to put his special stamp on about any song he recorded. This was Isaac’s biggest pop hit -to that time- his next single also in 1971- would shoot all the way to the toppermost of the poppermost- #1 ‘Shaft.’
