Year-end charts 1979

800102 1979 Year-end Chart

The year-end charts for 1979 of Bravo readers’ most popular hits, based on the weekly charts,  in Bravo of 2 January 1980. From the international charts,  I had five of them on single, and two on LP (Grease and ABBA’s Voulez-Vous). Of the 20 international hits, only one I don’t know (#19). Of the German hits, I owned none, and can recall the tune of six.
