Saturday Morning's Greatest Hits: Goodbye Girl (1978)

The pop group Bread hadn't charted in nearly 6 years when lead singer David Gates went solo on American Bandstand in 1978 to perform the title song to the Richard Dreyfuss movie, "The Goodbye Girl".

Several years later, Gates would revisit "Goodbye" in a duet with country singer Billy Dean. After that, Hootie & the Blowfish would cover "Goodbye" for the TNT remake of the movie. As it happened, "Goodbye" was Gates' coda on the charts.
