My Favorite Songs of 1978

Posted: April 24, 2013 in Rankings

Unlike most rankings, I won’t be simply tossing these up in a numerical order. Because I know better than anybody that on some days, some songs kick more ass than other songs. A song that is ranked 14th today could very well rank 1st tomorrow, if it suddenly comes on the radio during the perfect moment. So I’ll group them:
Awesome
Great
Pretty Good
Not Bad
…with inter-group splitting.
