1977, a fine year for music.  I'l kick this off with two great instrumentals from Canada ...

1977 - the year that punk was hitting big...or was it?

Apart from the obligatory Pistols, you'd have trouble finding ANY in our charts that year!

In actual fact, two sets of prog-rockers were having their biggest single hits!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SPdONfPts-4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VyJBNZ4i4Yc

Lastly, for good measure - a group that introduced us Brits to the delights of this song (the original never charted here!)

Some good stuff so far.  Never heard that MAnhattan Transfer song before.  I quite liked it.

Here's some hellos and goodbyes in Canada of 1977.  Starting with what would become the final mainstream chart hit for Terry Jacks ...

Terry Jacks - Hey Country Girl
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qduSp7xde0M

----------------------------------------------------

Here is the debut chart single for Bruce Murray, the younger brother of Country superstar Anne Murray.  It is a cover of the 1976 Boz Scaggs song ...

Bruce Murray - We're All Alone
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gysBHppA9XI

----------------------------------------------------

Here is the final chart hit for Ottawa based group Octavian.  Prior to this song, they had a small handful of hits across Canada.  This was their last before they called it quits ...

Octavian - Can't Stop Myself From Loving You

Lake ~ Time Bomb

Lake was a German band.  This song was released in Germany in 1976 and 1977 in America. We heard this in high school and loved it. We got to listen to a few albums from German bands back in high school, this one (Lake) and also Triumvirat and Eloy.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6bcI6O-fh8

April Wine ~ You won't dance with me

A "50s type" slow song/love ballad that was really popular in Canada at the time, and still gets played quite a bit on oldies stations.  If you like slow songs, you will probably like this one.

I still hear it on the radio from time to time.  In Canada, it (like the UK) was paired as a AA side with Girls School, but for us, Girls School was the first A, Kintyre was the flip.

As Girls School / Mull of Kintyre, it reached #44 in Canada on January 14, 1978.  The next week, the printed chart had it listed only as Girls School and it peaked at #34 the week after that

For Canada, it was indeed in 1976.  I'm glad it was a BIG hit in the UK.  Don't know what America did not see in it.  Heck there are American cities in the title, that should have guaranteed it a hit Stateside.

Patsy had a few more hits in Canada. Off hand I can think of "Sugar Daddy", which got more radio play than "From new York to L.A.", and "Are you ready for love". She also sang songs in french which made her popular in Quebec, Canada.

Just a thought Howard, when people post songs here...in these types of threads (The year in Music)...usually they post songs they know, or brings back special memories for them during that year, or have a story to tell about the song, etc...  No need to post songs that you don't know and never heard of.  Coz then I could post 5000 songs from any given year..lol

It's a good idea to post songs you already know and like, or look at previous songs in the thread and contribute to the discussions going on.  Sounds good Howard?

But you have heard of Roy Ayers? right? ???



No


In my observation Roy Ayers wasn't well known then among people who didn't follow "Urban" music.  I'd wager that 75% of my H.S. graduating class never heard of him.  However, I'd developed a taste for "Urban" music (despite that I didn't live in the city at that time).  As I spent one summer in the city during high school and interacted with numerous city peers, I learned that artists like Roy Ayers were a big deal there.

No


Roy Ayers was popular in the urban community in the late 70's and in the early 80's as well.

"You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth" (also known as "You Took the Words Right Out of My Mouth (Hot Summer Night)") is the first single by the American musician Meat Loaf in his solo career. It is a track off his 1977 album Bat Out of Hell, written by Jim Steinman. The album version includes a spoken word intro by Steinman and Marcia McClain. This was removed from the single version and most radio spins.

Wow, here's one rare (but good) find!  As a High School senior I'd hear it occasionally on the Chicago soul station on my rotation at that time.  I liked it!  If my memory serves me right, it was usually spun by the "night" D.J. because it's one of those songs that sounds a lot better after dark - at least that's what I thought at the time.  Nice  :)

Joy Sarney is an English female pop singer. Sarney is best known for a UK hit single, "Naughty Naughty Naughty" in 1977.

Sarney started out as a folk/comedy performer in the Liverpool trio, The Crabtrees, in the mid-1960s, along with her brother Hal and Derek Marsden. The Crabtrees performed in venues all over Merseyside, and their act embraced traditional, contemporary and humorous songs. She sang with the Mickey Jupp Band.

The song "Naughty Naughty Naughty", was a novelty love song between the singer and Mr Punch, and reached Number 26 on the UK Singles Chart in May 1977. A follow-up single, "Angling for a Kiss" was released in November 1977, but failed to make the chart, and Sarney remains a one-hit wonder.

"Naughty Naughty Naughty" was engineered by Chris Tsangarides at Morgan Studios in Willesden, North London. The single was issued by Alaska Records, owned by the record producer and musician, John Schroeder.

"Rock Bottom" was the British entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1977, performed in English by Lynsey de Paul and Mike Moran. It was also written by de Paul and Moran. At the close of voting, it had received 121 points, placing second in a field of 18. It charted in several European countries, topping the charts in Switzerland, #2 in Austria, #4 in Germany, #6 in Sweden, #7 in Ireland and Norway and #10 in France. In the UK, it reached #19. On the basis of sales from the record-buying public of Europe, it was the winning entry, outperforming the contest's winner.

As a result, the original Piero Umiliani recording finally became a hit in the UK (#8 in the UK charts in May 1977), where the Muppet Show soundtrack album featuring The Muppets' version went to number one. It was at that point that the name "Mahna Mahna and The Snouths" was given the incorrect credit of "Mahna Mahna and The Snowths," which has served as the definitive spelling ever since then.

"Here You Come Again", released in 1977, is the 19th solo studio album by Dolly Parton. The album included Parton's first significant "crossover" success, the Grammy award-winning title single, which scored #3 on the US pop singles charts during the early months of 1978. Both the album and title single also scored #1 on the US country music albums and singles charts respectively. "Here You Come Again"' was a rare example of a Parton success that she did not write herself; it was composed by the songwriting team of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil.

"You're Moving Out Today" is a song written by Carole Bayer Sager, Bette Midler and Bruce Roberts. It was a hit in Australia, reaching Number 1 in 1977. Although Sager is a prolific songwriter who is credited on many hit singles, this was the only one that she performed herself. Bette Midler also recorded her version of the song which reached US #42 the same year.
