Top 10 Songs of 1977

Best Songs 1977

You'd think with all the talk going around about punk and disco in 1977 that nobody was making any rock 'n' roll that year. But here's a fact: The biggest-selling album in 1977 was Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours,' and records by classic rockers like the Eagles, Queen and Lynyrd Skynyrd were also huge. While there's no getting around the great punk and disco singles that came out in 1977, there were plenty of terrific classic rock tracks too, like the ones found on our list of the Top 10 Songs of 1977.

10 'Black Betty'- Ram Jam
9 'We Will Rock You'- Queen
8 'Sweet Talkin' Woman'- ELO
7 'Dreams'-Fleetwood Mac
6'Deacon Blues'- Steely Dan
5 'Hotel California' Eagles

3 'What's Your Name' Lynyrd Skynyrd
2 'Like a Hurricane'- Neil Young

'Go Your Own Way'


Fleetwood Mac's breakup album 'Rumours' dominated 1977. As band members battled egos, each other and their romantic relationships (which, awkwardly, were all tangled within the band), their music got stronger, as everyone tried to get his and her side of the story heard. Everyone had their say: Stevie Nicks (see No. 7 on our list of the Top 10 Songs of 1977), Christine McVie and, especially, Lindsey Buckingham, whose terrific goodbye to Nicks is punctuated by one of rock's all-time-great guitar solos. Their pain, our gain.
