    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.

    But consecutively we should be on last week - Terry Wogan's Floral Dance has been missed.
    :-? http://www.officialcharts.com/charts/si ... 0101/7501/

    This may be the 52/53 week conundrum again.
    I'm leaving all those UK adds outside my top 12 as they shouldn't be added yet.

    Heart - Crazy On You is a re-issue. You voted it in 1976, Dustin. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crazy_on_You

    Please add Suicide - Cheree

    1 3 Bill Withers - Lovely Day (original release)*
    2 1 Blondie - Rip Her To Shreds / X Offender (album version) / In The Flesh (reissue)*
    3 2 Donna Summer - Love's Unkind
    4 13 Penetration - Don't Dictate*
    5 4 David Bowie - "Heroes"
