Bravo charts March 1977


The readers’ charts in Bravo of 17 March 1977. For once, the German #1 beats the international chart-topper, with Marianne Rosenberg’s disco-lite hit Marleen (lyrically a complete rip-off of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene”).


Marianne Rosenberg 1977

German singer Marianne Rosenberg on a single-page poster in Bravo of 6 January 1977. Rosenberg started out as a Schlager singer but in the mid-1970s began churning out disco-flavoured hits such as the excellent Ich bin wie Du and her signature hit Marleen. She has become something of a cult figure, especially in the German gay scene.
