AMERICAN TOP 40- THE 1970’S- WEEK OF NOVEMBER 12, 1977

Debby Boone – You Light Up My Life (1979, Vinyl) - Discogs

American Top 40- The 1970’s- Week of November 12, 1977. I started listening to American Top 40 in mid- August 1977- all these songs are very familiar. It seemed like ‘You Light Up My Life’ was #1 forever that fall- it was I guess 10 weeks. Overall though an exceptional Top 40- I have half the 40 in the A range. If I had to select a Mount Rushmore- How Deep Is Your Love/ I Go Crazy/ Slip Slidin’ Away and Back In Love Again.
