While feathered hair, bell bottoms and disco were in full force in 1977, don’t dismiss the year as a bust. Fleetwood Mac’s best-selling record, Rumours, was released that year, too. It wasn’t that long ago but it sure seems like it! Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, Television’s Marquee Moon, Pink Floyd’s Animals Books: The Silmarillion by J.R.R. Tolkien and The Shining by Stephen King Fashion: Farrah Fawcett popularized the one-piece swimming suit President: Jimmy Carter Inventions: Magnetic Resonance Imaging (or as we call it the MRI) was invented by Ramond V. Damadian Births: Tom Hardy and Liv Tyler And we also said goodbye to Elvis Presley and Bing Crosby.
