falling

i remember a song call falling from 1978 cant remember who sang it who was it?

If you had tried looking in the index, or even doing a search in the Google box at the top of this page you would have found that "Falling" is one of the top 1000 song titles. Looking at the songs listed there would have shown you that "Leblanc & Carr" had a hit with the song in 1978. It was only a hit in the US so failed to make the 1978 list.

Willie Nelson - No. 2

Good day - I have one more request: "Stardust" by Willie Nelson was also stayed 30 weeks on New Zealandian Charts, peaking at No. 1 and holding this position for 6 weeks... Please put it there too...

Thank you, regards, Allan Pour

"Stardust" by Willie Nelson is already in the 1978 list (number 41 in the 1.10.001 data)

cars

the CARS aren't even labeled (whats the deal)!!! they had some pretty good songs from '77

The page about "The Cars" (http://tsort.info/music/wxykn5.htm) has details of their hit songs. According to Wikipedia their first single was the song "Just What I Needed" which was released by Elektra in early 1978. You will see that our listing shows it entering the Billboard chart in June 1978.

This site lists songs in the charts (which is of course a slightly different thing from "good songs"). Our listing correctly shows that The Cars had no hits in 1977, their chart career started in 1978.

Of course many of the songs on their first album were being performed (in New England and elsewhere) in 1977, however they were not hits until later.

Their early singles did not gather enough chart entries to be listed in the year pages (we only list the top 100 songs of each year). You could have found the artist pages: by searching on the "Songs" page or the "Song Artists" page; by looking at the "Page index for artists"; or by looking at the site index (under "C" on the "Carol - Chalk" page).

The Wombles

Why are The Wombles not in this list?

There are two different reasons why "The Wombles" are not in this list. Firstly while they had 10 hit songs in the UK they only had a single US hit (which peaked at #55) and a single New Zealand success (peaking at #5). They were not international enough to make the list.

Secondly, even if they had made the cut, they would not have been in this list (the songs of 1978) since all the singles were originally released in 1974 or 1975.
