Eight songs went to number-one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Six of the songs that peaked on the chart in 1976 are "Disco Lady", "Boogie Fever", "Love Hangover", "Kiss and Say Goodbye", "(Shake, Shake, Shake) Shake Your Booty", and "Play that Funky Music". Two more songs, "You Don't Have to Be a Star (To Be in My Show)", and "Car Wash", topped the chart the year after. Another song, "Love Rollercoaster", topped the chart in 1976, but originally peaked the R&B chart the year before.
"Turning Point" by R&B singer Tyrone Davis spent a week at number one on the R&B singles chart in February and holds the distinction of being the first number one soul single to fail to make the Hot 100 since 1955.
