This week in music: 1978

(KFVS) -

Let's step into the Breakfast Show time machine and set the dials to 1978.

The top movies of that year: Grease, Superman and Animal House.

On TV people were watching Dallas, Taxi and The Incredible Hulk.

And these were the songs being played on the radio this week 38 years ago.

Billboard Magazine's Hot 100 had Dolly Parton at number five with Here You Come Again. For years Parton had found success on the country charts but this was her first major hit on the pop charts.

In the number four spot was the R & B group LTD with their biggest chart hit Everytime I Turn Around I'm Back in Love Again.

Linda Ronstadt was in the number 3 spot with a remake of Roy Orbison's Blue Bayou.

At number two was the breakthrough single for the band Player. Baby Come Back would go on to spend three weeks at number one.

And in the top spot was a ballad that was the lead off single to the Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack.  How Deep Is Your Love, by the Bee Gees, set a record with a 33 week chart run. In a 2001 interview, Barry Gibb said it's his favorite Bee Gees' song.

The music of 1978.
