In 1978 a disco version of Beethoven's 5th made the charts. Several versions of Bach's music has shown up on the charts in the 70"s In 1980 Ravel's Bolero became popular because of the movie "10". Strauss's thus spoke Zarathustrea may have been on the charts. Echoes of Rachmaninoff's Symphony number #2 Ops 27 movement 2 adagio appear in the song "Nobody Does it Better" from the movie The Spy who Loved Me in the James Bond franchise. It was sung by Carly Simon. The melody from the adagio is heard throughout the song. My parents had a 78 RPM of Bolero Which I heard for the first time around 5 years earlier.
