Top Ten Tunes- 1977

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.

Silver Jubilee street party

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.
