Every Friday, I’m publishing my personal top ten songs from a single year. Last week, I started with 1976 (have a look by clicking here) and this week it’s the turn of 1977.
In 1977, Elvis died aged 42, Red Rum wins the Grand National for the 3rd time, there were street parties all across the UK for the Queen’s Silver Jubilee, Jimmy Carter is elected President of the United States and Star Wars was released and broke all box office records. Aaaaand yours truly turned 1 year old.
So, here’s my personal top ten tracks from 1977 and you may notice two artists that also featured in 1976’s list (they’re two of my all time favourite artists, so you may have to get used to it). Spotify playlist at end as per.
- Lust for Life by Iggy Pop
2. Sir Duke by Stevie Wonder
3. No More Heroes by The Stranglers
4. Psycho Killer by Talking Heads
5. Heroes by David Bowie
6. Dreams by Fleetwood Mac
7. Uptown Top Ranking by Althea and Donna
8. Oh Bondage Up Yours by X-Ray Spex
9. Daddy Cool by Boney M
10. Nobody Does it Better by Carly Simon
Which one do you rate the most? Bowie is undoubtedly my favourite track here.
See you cats next week for 1978.
