Top 100 Singles of 1977 in Canada

debby boone you light up my lifeAccording to RPM magazine, the biggest song of 1977 in Canada was Debby Boone’s “You Light Up My Life”. It was composed by Joseph Brooks for the feature film of the same name and originally recorded by Kasey Cisyk. Just five Canadian songs made the year-end Top 100 below. These entries have been bolded in red. The Canadian charts are an accurate reflection of Canadian tastes in music, and the Top 100 songs were determined both from nationwide sales and radio airplay data. The drawback with year-end charts is that songs charting from the end of one year through beginning of the next will have their chart performance split between the two years. More year-end and other Canadian charts can be found here.
