It was the year in which the constellation Lite & White finally assumed the mantle of leadership in a pop universe it had influenced so greatly since the dawn of the 1970s. Looks Like We Made It, Barry Manilow sang, and it wasn't just his own success or the success of Mary MacGregor, David Soul, Barbra Streisand, and Debby Boone that gave his claim the ring of truth. For even nonresidents of Barry's home constellation -- stars like Fleetwood Mac and the Eagles -- were sounding very Lite & White indeed in 1977. To be sure, this was still a year of tremendous popstrological diversity, but the rise of Debby Boone on the strength of the enormous hit You Light Up My Life made an otherwise weak consensus in the direction of Liteness & Whiteness an outright mandate. It also bestowed upon the micro-generation born under the reign of Pat Boone's daughter an ability to achieve power without causing pain, and to give pleasure without sparking passion.
