"Love Will Find a Way" is a single released by American rock group Pablo Cruise from its album Worlds Away in May 1978. On the Hot 100 "Love Will Find a Way" came very close to matching the group's "Whatcha Gonna Do?" chart run for the seven weeks capping with its identical #6 peak, a year to the week later, from mid-July through August.

The song received a considerable amount of airplay during the summer of 1978, prompting critic Robert Christgau to say, "Hear David Jenkins sing 'once you get past the pain' fifty times in a day and the pain will be permanent", referring to the lyrics of the chorus.

The song was used on CBS' period drama Swingtown, at the end of episode 2, "Love Will Find a Way" (creating something of an anachronism, as the episode was set in 1976, two years before the song was released).

"Go Your Own Way" is a song by the British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac, released as a single in December 1976. Like many of the singles released off of the previous album Fleetwood Mac, "Go Your Own Way" was very successful. The song peaked at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming the group's first top-ten hit in the U.S. In the UK, the single was not as successful, and would only reach No. 38. However, the song became quite popular in the U.K. over a longer period as Rumours received more radio airplay and it re-entered the singles chart on many occasions. This led to the song selling gradually over the years. It has been certified Silver in the U.K. for digital sales of over 200,000 copies. The song also hit the top 40 in many other countries, including the Netherlands, where it hit No. 1.

Do That to Me One More Time is a song performed by American pop duo Captain & Tennille. It was their 8th chart-topping hit in the U.S., The song was included on the duo's 1979 album, Make Your Move, and was written by Toni Tennille. It features a Lyricon solo by saxophonist Tom Scott, though Captain mimed to this part on a descant recorder in the promotional video. Even though an edited version was released as a single, yet another version was created for their many TV performances promoting the song. This version contained a "natural" ending, opposed to the fade-out ending that was featured on the single and album versions. This version was mainly lip-synced by Tennille on such TV programs.

After a decline in popularity from the height of their success in the mid-1970s, the Captain and Tennille signed with Casablanca Records under the guidance of Neil Bogart. "Do That to Me One More Time" was a comeback for the duo, but they failed to achieve further success on Casablanca and their contract was not renewed. Vocalist and songwriter Toni Tennille played the song for Bogart at her house with husband Daryl Dragon in Pacific Palisades, California on an electric piano. Bogart reacted enthusiastically, saying: "That's a smash! There's no doubt in my mind that's going to be your first single.
