Heavenly Harps

Heart, Hall and Oats, Hank Williams Jr, Huey Lewis and the News… He’s So Fine, Heart of Glass, Hallelujah, Hey Jude… high hat, half note, heavy metal, harmonica… Hundreds of hot hits to choose from.

That is just what I want to talk about… hits.  Every artist wants a hit record.  How do you find out if it is a hit?  The Hot 100 from Billboard or any other hit song list.  Back in the 50s it was your Hit Parade on TV.  But many places will rank songs and albums.  They used to base the charts on sales and radio requests.  Now you have to add in how a video does online with views too.

I remember in high school always listening to the countdowns on the radio.  Of course Casey Kasem’s countdown was the most popular one.  I would even stick a cassette into the radio to record it if I had to go somewhere.  Did you ever listen to the countdowns, or should I say the hit parade?

Here is a look back to when I was 12 years old, the top 30 of 1978.
