Number One Hits from 1977 - Alternate US Charts Edition

As we begin to wrap-up our coverage of the music from 1977, here is a comprehensive weekly listing of the Number One songs from WLS, The Gavin Report and Radio & Records, respectively. The three charts synch up and align on just three songs:
  • "When I Need You" - Leo Sayer (week of May 14th)
  • "Da Doo Ron Ron" - Shaun Cassidy (week of July 9th)
  • "You Light Up My Life" - Debby Boone (6 weeks in Oct/Nov)
That the three singles were all on the Warner Bros. Records label is just a coincidence. As is the fact that all three songs are cover versions.
