This week in music: 1976

(KFVS) -

Let's step into the Breakfast Show time machine and travel back to the days of disco and polyester. 

We're talking about the 1970s and these were the songs atop the Billboard Music chats this week in 1976.

At number five was Lou Rawls with his signature song, "You'll Never Find Another Love Like Mine."

At number four was one of the most popular pieces of music from the disco era, "A Fifth of Beethoven" by Walter Murphy.

England Dan and John Ford Coley were in the number three position with "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight." England Dan of course is Dan Seals who went on to become one of country music's biggest stars of the 1980s.

Checking in at number two was a song that was banned by some radio stations. "Shake Your Booty" by KC and the Sunshine Band. The b-side to the single was "Boogie Shoes" which was later included on the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack.

And in the top spot was Wild Cherry with "Play That Funky Music." The song is listed at number 73 on Billboard's Greatest Songs of All Time.
