50 R&B Songs That Made 1977 The Best Year in Black Music History! (Plus Some Honorable Mentions)

In celebration of the Class of 1977's 40th Anniversary, djrobblog pays tribute with this special countdown of that year's best R&B jams. It's a list that helped make 1977, in my not-so-humble opinion, the greatest year in R&B music history!

Need proof?

Scroll through this list of 50 incredible songs - plus some honorable mentions - ranked in order from #50 to #1 - and decide for yourself. You'll be hard-pressed to find another year with as many great soul music classics as this lineup contains.

If you do, please hip me to it. In the meantime, enjoy this special countdown courtesy of djrobblog - the blog for serious music fans!

Honorable Mention: "Come Go With Me" - Pockets

The countdown begins with a few 1977 honorable mentions. Languishing somewhere between disco and soul/funk, this late-1977 dance gem shared more than the Columbia record label with Earth, Wind & Fire. "Come Go With Me" by the Pockets was also produced and cowritten by one of EWF's founders, Verdine White.
