Bravo charts December 1977


The readers’ charts in Bravo of 22 December 1977. There are some very good sings here: ABBA’s “The Name Of The Game” being the best of the lot. Interesting that at least the Top 4 of the German charts are covers of international hits (from #1 down, by Umberto Tozzi, Raffaela Cara, Kenny Rogers and the Bellamy Brothers).

Number 5, the annoying and horribly catchy “Skateboard” was a parallel hit for Benny and, as an instrumental, by Copains. It was written by Boney M svengali Frank Farian. Here’s Benny singing it on the ZDF Hitparade. Note the complete lack of enthusiasm from the audience; but our Benny keeps smiling.
