AC hits of Gino Vannelli 1976-1985

During the years 1976-1985, Canadian singer/songwriter Gino Vannelli scored 4 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.  I'm amazed that: 1) Vannelli didn't have more AC hits in the US, and 2) neither "I Just Wanna Stop" and "Living Inside Myself" hit the top spot.  I consider "Living Inside Myself" to be one of the top singles of 1981.  Vannelli music continues to be in heavy rotation around these parts.  (Note: titles marked with an asterisk are not currently available on Spotify.  A link to those songs on YouTube has been provided when available).
