25 Fave Songs of 1977

Donna Summer : I Feel Love

This was a brutal chore, cutting down my favorite songs of 1977 to just 25. In some cases (Wire, Television, Talking Heads, Ramones, Sex Pistols) , the songs I selected had to represent everything on the album. There were also some great singles on the R and B side that had to make the list. And then there were a handful of songs that didn't make a huge impression in 1977, but have stayed with me all these years ( Dwight Twilley, NRBQ, The Saints).

1. Donna Summer I Feel Love
2. David Bowie 'Heroes'
3. Dwight Twilley Band Looking for the Magic
4. The Clash Complete Control
5. Wire Three Girl Rhumba

6. Chic Everybody Dance
7. NRBQ Ridin in My Car
8. Elvis Costello Watching the Detectives
9. Television See No Evil
10. Ramones Sheena is a Punk Rocker

11. The Saints This Perfect Day
12. Sex Pistols God Save the Queen
13. Fleetwood Mac Dreams
14. Marvin Gaye Got to Give It Up
15. Parliament Flash Light

16. Heatwave Boogie Nights
17. Eddie and the Hot Rods Do Anything You Wanna Do
18. The Babys Isn't It Time
19. Electric Light Orchestra Mr Blue Sky
20. Talking Heads Psycho Killer

21. Richard Hell And the Voidoids Blank Generation
