The Number One ranked song for 1978 charted for 20 weeks, eight of them at the apex. A Bee Gees' product, of course, but from the lyrical snippet provided below, do you know which one?
"Listen to the ground there is movement all around
There is something goin' down and I can feel it
On the waves of the air there is dancin' out there
If it's somethin' we can share, we can steal it"
How Deep Is Your Love
A song that charted for 33 weeks was ranked third for 1978. The ranking points it garnered for longevity were neutralized somewhat by only staying at Number One for three weeks. What Bee Gees' song was this one?
"'Cause we're living in a world of fools breaking us down
When they all should let us be, we belong to you and me"
(Love Is) Thicker Than Water
How Deep Is Your Love
Ranked fourth, another Bee Gees' song rounded out their "hat trick" of big hits for 1978. Number One for four weeks during its 27 week tenure on the Hot 100, which song featured these lines?
"Well, you can tell by the way I use my walk
I'm a woman's man no time to talk"
How Deep Is Your Love
Having disposed of all the Gibbs' big hits for 1978, we can go onto other business. Ranked seventh for 1978 was a ditty that would prove to be the only true "pop" hit for a group that would ultimately have their way with the country chart a few years later. What song was this? It topped the Hot 100 for four weeks.
"Stay with me, lay with me, holding me, loving me, baby
Here with me, near with me, feeling you close to me, baby"
I Wanna Be Close To You
Kiss You All Over
Sharing The Night Together
It's Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next To Me
The hit ranked ninth for 1978 spent 31 weeks on the Hot 100 but only one week at Number One. Somewhat controversial at the time, here's your lyrical clue. What song was it?
"No one knows who she is or what her name is
I don't know where she came from or what her game is"
Hot Child In The City
"Thanks for the times that you've given me
The memories are all in my mind
And now that we've come to the end of our rainbow
There's something I must say out loud"
These words came from a lovely ballad that spent a couple of weeks atop the Hot 100 in 1978 and finished the year ranked 14th. What song was it?
Thanks For The Memory
Three Times a Lady
You're In My Heart
I'll Never Love This Way Again
The artist who composed and sang the song ranked 17th for 1978, tasted the charts four years earlier. This hit, which peaked at Number Three on the Hot 100, and several other songs on a wonderful album truly vaulted him into super stardom where he remained for the next 20 years. Name the song with this lyrical assistance.
"Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair
You always have my unspoken passion
Although I might not seem to care"
Just The Way You Are
Love Is In The Air
Can't Smile Without You
Count On Me
"It's got groove, it's got meaning"
Sorry, I can't give you any more of the lyric without presenting the answer on a platter but aficionados of music (and movies) of the era will surely know this song. It reached Number One on the Hot 100 for a couple of weeks and was ranked 18th for 1978. Do you remember it?
The 20th ranked song for 1978 only peaked at Number Four on the Hot 100 but it has sold millions of copies around the globe since its release. Can you decipher the answer from this segment of the lyric?
"I've paid my dues time after time
I've done my sentence but committed no crime
And bad mistakes, I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face
But I've come through"
With a Little Luck
I Will Survive
Two Out Of Three Ain't Bad
We Are The Champions
With two weeks at Number One, this song might have ranked higher than 26th in 1978 but it lost charting points when it only could stay on the Hot 100 charts for 17 weeks. Unique in the way it was recorded, try to identify it with this lyrical hint.
"I remember when you couldn't wait to love me
Used to hate to leave me
Now after lovin' me late at night
When it's good for you
And you're feeling alright
Well you just roll over
And you turn out the light"
If I Can't Have You
It's a Heartache
You Don't Bring Me Flowers
Love Will Find A Way
A Number Three hit earned sufficient points during its 22 week chart run to finish 1978 ranked 28th. It would be the only Top 40 solo hit this artist would achieve although he did have a Number Six hit in 1987 as part of a duet. What song has these provocative lyrics?
"You ask me if I love you and I choke on my reply
I'd rather hurt you honestly than mislead you with a lie
For who am I to judge you in what you say or do
I'm only just beginning to see the real you"
The Closer I Get To You
Sometimes When We Touch
Too Much, Too Little, Too Late
"That's the way it began, we were hand in hand
Glenn Miller's Band was better than before
We yelled and screamed for more
And the Porter tunes (Night and Day)
Made us dance across the room
It ended all too soon
And on the way back home I promised you'd never be alone"
This lovely song ranked 40th for 1978. It peaked at Number Three on the charts during a 20 week chart run. What hit was it?
Night and Day
Dance With Me
Another contentious song from 1978 spent three weeks at Number Two on the Hot 100 earning sufficient placement points to rank 44th for the year. Here's your lyrical clue... what song was it?
"They got little baby legs and they stand so low
You got to pick 'em up just to say hello
They got little cars that go beep, beep, beep
They got little voices goin' peep, peep, peep"
A band that had served as sidemen for many other artists in recording sessions got their chance to record their own material and made the most of it with a Number Five hit in 1978. Ranked at 49th for the year, it served as a springboard to a highly successful career for the group spanning well into the next decade. What was their hit that featured these words?
"It's not in the way that you hold me
It's not in the way you say you care
It's not in the way you've been treating my friends
It's not in the way that you stayed till the end
It's not in the way you look or the things that you say that you'll do"
Hold The Line
The Logical Song
That's The Way (I Like It)
How Much I Feel
A song that seemed far more popular at the time than its charting positions would suggest (Number Eight on the Hot 100, Number Six on the Adult Contemporary chart), it earned just enough placement points to finish 84th in 1978's rankings. These couple of lines should help in the identification process.
"Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there"
What song was it?
Copacabana (At The Copa)
I Love The Nightlife (Disco Round)
