AllMusic Review by

Billboard Top Hits: 1978 features some of the decade's biggest and most eclectic hits, including Queen's classic "We Are the Champions," ABBA's "Take a Chance on Me," Nick Gilder's "Hot Child in the City," and Bonnie Tyler's "It's a Heartache." Exile's "Kiss You All Over," Paul Davis' "I Go Crazy," Player's "Baby Come Back," and Little River Band's "Reminiscing" reflect the era's yen for soft rock and singer/songwriter-oriented material, while "Lay Down Sally" captures Eric Clapton at his poppiest. Though it's a bit too scattered to make a cohesive collection, Billboard Top Hits: 1978 does an admirable job of representing mainstream music trends of the late '70s.
