I always associate 1978 as the year disco ruled, dominated by The Bee Gees in every shape and form. It also gave us the original Grease, so it was a year for musical movies.

Our first chart is quiet-- a fourth week for those Bee Gees.

With this new year, as we head for a full circle around all 10 years of each decade, I am changing the retiring rules as we move into a second round.

A song that stays in the top 40 can stay on for up to 52 weeks, a full year, before being retired.

A song that is below #40 and has been on over 26 weeks (half a year) is retired

A song that is below #75 and has been on over 13 weeks (1/4 a year) is retired.
