HERC's 1978: Summer 45s

HERC applied the 100 Days Of Summer timeline (5/24/78-9/4/78) to his list of 100 Favorite Singles of 1978 and is proud to share that subset with us now.  All songs either debuted or peaked on Billboard's Hot 100 during those hot one hundred days.
HERC used the Ranking System detailed in Joel Whitburn's Billboard Hot 100 Annual [2005] (above) to score and rank the singles which are presented here in countdown order, from lowest to highest scoring.  (A few songs that would have made this list have been previously featured.)
