Default Helen Reddy's final song to chart on the Billboard hot 100

The song is titled "I Can't Say Goodbye To You", it only reached the #88 spot in 1981. It's a very nice tune, one of those melodic love songs/ballads. I imagine it probably would have been a top 40 hit if it had been recorded and released five or six years earlier when Helen Reddy and this type of song was more in style, but by 1981 the music business had changed quite a bit and Helen Reddy's time on the top 40 chart was long over.

I heard Helen Reddy retired from the music business and became a hypnotherapist.

Aside from being a top notch singer, Helen Reddy was also attractive looking back in the day.



As far as I know, the last album/LP she recorded/released was in 1983, titled "Imagination". She attempted to update her style and sound with this album to be more 1980's like, but the album was not a commercial success.

Here's another of Helen's non top 40 hits, this one is from 1977, titled "The Happy Girls". It reached the #57 spot on Billboard. I'm posting the version of the song that was issued as a 45 RPM single, the album/LP version is about a minute longer.

I absolutely love her version of We'll Sing In The Sunshine. One of my older brothers had her album We'll Sing In The Sunshine in his record collection when I was a kid, but I couldn't tell you what any of the other songs on it were. LOL.

Yes, Helen's version of We'll Sing In The Sunshine is a pleasant listen. I've always considered her as mainly a hit singles artist because unfortunately her albums tend to be on the mediocre side with more than the usual amount of unmemorable/forgettable tunes. My two favorite hit singles of hers are "Angie Baby" and "Aint No Way To Treat A Lady". "Peaceful" is a nice tune also.

Helen is mostly known for slower tempo type of songs but occasionally she'd speed up the tempo and record a snappy tune like this good one which is the flip side of "The Happy Girls" 45 RPM single:
