Best Hits of 1977

Nostalgic Radio-Friendly Hit Songs from 1977

1977 was a notable year in Musicdom. It was in February this year that the rock foursome comprising of Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Bernie Leadon and Randy Meisner known as the Eagles released their momentous Grammy winning single "Hotel California", the title song from their hit album of the same name! 

It was also the same year, when Donna Summer sang the super hit track "I Feel Love" considered by Rolling Stone mag as one of 'The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time' , Paul McCartney's band Wings became popular with the Christmas oriented international best seller "Mull of Kintyre" and Boney M, the Euro disco band gave the world "Ma Baker".

1977 also produced more such awesome gems but did not achieve the super popularity they also deserved! I could go and on and write an entire 'Top 100 songs from 1977' for you.
