Post your list of your favourite songs and/or albums of 1978. The point scoring system is as so:

1. 50 points
2. 40
3. 30
4. 20

8. 8
9. 7

However, feel free to post lists much longer than just a top 15!

The deadline is midnight on November 1st, but I will be lenient if you're close to finishing a list.

To advance to the final list, songs/albums must have a minimum of 2 votes. In case of a tie, a tie-breaker will be set up.


EPs and compilations are not allowed. Quibbles about release dates will be settled by RateYourMusic.


Happy listening! :music-listening: :music-guitarred: :music-rockon: :happy-partydance:

Just a quick message from me - please if possible can you use delimiters when you post your lists! It means that I can split the text into Rank - Artist - Album easily which saves me a CRAZY amount of time. Preferably a delimiter that's not likely to come up in the name of an artist or a song as well, like fullstops or hyphens.

Bad:1 Blondie Parallel Lines (I have to type this up basically)
Better: 1. Blondie - Parallel Lines
Cadillac: 1 |Blondie| Parallel Lines

A great time for music. I was fortunate to live within walking distance of the Paradiso in 78 & 79. I also got to see The Clash in Hammersmith Palais but not until '81 - although not Dillinger, Leroy Smart or any of those other guys. My wife wasn't too pleased about being dragged along to that one as she was 7 months pregnant at the time.

Honorable mentions for songs:

Steve Reich | Music for 18 Musicians: I can only listen to this as one track, so I consider it a "song", but it doesn't make sense to include in a poll like this. Regardless, this is the best thing generally in '78 and one of the most amazing pieces of music of the last century.

Anthony Braxton | Composition 58 (from Creative Orchestra - Koln): Recorded live in '78, not released until the '90s, this is one of the greatest pieces of orchestral avant garde jazz I've ever heard.

I was quite surprised when compiling my list for the albums polls that 78 was one of the least represented years, and I feel it's a bit of an injustice because while there is no album I truly love from that year, it saw the release of a lot of albums I really like :

1) Kraftwerk - Die Mensch Maschine/The Man Machine
2) Wire - Chairs Missing
3) Queen - Jazz
4) Elvis Costello - This Year's Model
5) Devo - Q : Are We Not Men ? A: We Are Devo
6) Police - Outlandos d'Amour
7) Bruce Springsteen - Darkness on the Edge of Town
8) Pere Ubu - The Modern Dance
9) Public Image Ltd - Public Image Ltd
10) Blondie - Parallel Lines
11) The Cars - The Cars
12) Brian Eno - Ambient 1 : Music for Airports
13) Kate Bush - The Kick Inside
14) Magazine - Real Life
15) Talking Heads - More Songs About Food and Building
16) AC/DC - Powerage
17) Various Artists - Starmania (half songs here are not worth it, but there's an impressive list of French classic pop hits in this musical)

Songs :

1) Queen - Don't Stop Me Now
2) Gang of Four - Damaged Goods
3) Elvis Costello - Lipstick Vogue
4) Wire - Outdoor Miner
5) Dinosaur - Kiss Me Again
6) Magazine - Shot by Both Sides
7) The Cars - Just What I Needed
8) Ramones - I Wanna be Sedated
9) Patti Smith Group - Rock'n'Roll Nigger
10) Kraftwerk - The Robots
11) Lou Reed - Street Hassle
12) Queen - Bicycle Race
13) The B-52's - Rock Lobster
14) 10CC - Dreadlock Holiday
15) Buzzcocks - Ever Fallen in Love
16) Dire Straits - Sultans of Swing
17) Devo - Uncontrolable Urge
18) The Police - So Lonely
19) Daniel Balavoine - Quand on Arrive en Ville (From Starmania)
20) Elvis Costello - Radio, Radio
21) Jacksons - Blame it on the Boogie
22) Willie Williams - Armagideon Time
23) Wire - I am the Fly
24) Daniel Balavoine - S.O.S. D'un terrien en détresse (From Starmania)
25) Blondie - One Way or Another
26) Queen - More of that Jazz
27) Daniel Balavoine - Le Chanteur
28) Jane Birkin - Ex-Fan des Sixties
29) Gerry Rafferty - Baker Street
30) The Who - Who Are You?

That top 3 is quite perfect.
I recommend that everyone listen to the LP version of Damaged Goods, not the EP one. "Sometimes I'm thinking that I love you, but I know it's only lust" is one of my favorite lyrics ever, though Lipstick Vogue has the best lyrics overall (especially that "You say I've got no feelings, this is a good way to kill them")

Also I'm very surprised I'm only the 2nd voter for Street Hassle, I thought a Lou Reed epic with a Springsteen's featuring would be right in AM demographic's alley.

There's no "no soundtracks" rule, right, Zorg? The Jackson Browne album is from '77, so Grease would give him 15 albums again.

Honorio, "Cavatina" is a great pick, but it's actually from 1970.

Re: [Poll] Albums and Songs of 1978

Post by jamieW » Fri Oct 31, 2014 1:44 am

A special thanks to sonofsamiam for his songs lists, which have given me an adoration for artists like Julius Eastman, Kashiwa Daisuke, The Cinematic Orchestra, Paul Dolden, Alfred Schnittke, and now Klaus Schulze’s “Ludwig II Von Bayern,” an absolutely mesmerizing experience. (I only wish I could’ve found the album “X,” since I’m sure it would’ve ranked highly on my albums list, as well.) Coincidentally, 1978 is also the release year of Steve Reich’s “Music For 18 Musicians,” which marked my first exposure to modern classical (that I can recall anyway) years back.

More than any other year, 1978 is connected to my youth. I was only seven, but I still remember my babysitter blaring FM radio downstairs while I was trying to sleep. It gave me nightmares back then; but now, so many of those songs transport me back in time—none so much as the sax in the pop-perfect remake of Neil Young’s “Lotta Love” and the eerie pulsating beat from “Moving In Stereo,” songs that will always have my nostalgic devotion.

Henrik wrote:Honorio, "Cavatina" is a great pick, but it's actually from 1970.
Oops, you're right, Henrik, I didn't know that. Searching on the net I found out that, althought "Cavatina" was first featured on the 1970 film "The Walking Stick" there was no discographical release of the soundtrack of this film. The first releases of the song were a 1971 single and as part of the John Williams' 1971 album Changes (by the way I'm listening right now to the whole album and it sounds really good, including quite interesting classical guitar covers of The Beatles' "Because" or Joni Mitchell's "Woodstock").
So I just edited my list removing "Cavatina." I added to my list, seeing the love here for the "Grease" soundtrack, my favourite song from it (after Frankie Valli's tittle theme). I'm talking about bad-girl Rizzo's anthem There Are Worse Things I Could Do sang by Stockard Channing.
Sorry Zorg for the inconvenience.
