AC hits of Johnny Mathis 1976-1985


During the years 1976-1985, Johnny Mathis scored 13 hits on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart.  Here's a breakdown table, including year, peak chart position, and number of weeks on the AC charts. The table is followed by a Spotify playlist to help you determine how many tunes you remember.  The real treat for me was discovering Mathis' disco rendition of the Cole Porter tune "Begin the Beguine."  (Note: titles marked with an asterisk are not currently available on Spotify.  A link to those songs on YouTube has been provided when available).
