Top 100 Singles of 1976 in Canada

rod stewart - a night on the townAccording to RPM magazine, the biggest song of 1976 in Canada was “Tonight’s the Night” by Rod Stewart from his album A Night On the Town. Nine songs on the year-end top 100 chart below are from Canadian artists. Canadian entries have been bolded in red. The top Canadian song was “Roxy Roller” by Sweeney Todd at 5th of the year. 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.
