One Chart Dig: August 20, 1977

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

With my August affliction not seeming much better – it will abate within another week or so, based on my experience during Augusts past – I’m going to cocoon as much as possible today. But before I go, I thought I’d take a look at the Billboard Hot 100 for August 20, 1977.

The No. 1 record at the time was the Emotions’ “Best of My Love,” a decent record. Looking for a destination elsewhere in the Hot 100, however, I’m going to play – as I often do – with today’s date. By combining today’s date of 8/20 and dropping the zero, we come up with 82, and sitting at No. 82 thirty-six years ago today is a pretty good record that I don’t think I’ve ever heard before: “Look What You’ve Done To My Heart” by Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr. (formerly of the 5th Dimension), in its first week in the Hot 100.

The record would go a little higher, peaking at No. 51. It would go to No. 27 on the R&B chart and No. 29 on the Adult Contemporary Chart.
