I'm a sucker for a piano solo. So I'm looking forward to Friday!
Same here with Murray Head and One Night On Bangkok. Anyone remember Jesus Christ Superstar?
I totally agree TWD74. I've just seen several lists of "One Hit Wonders" that aren't as pedantic as us.
Aah. Living in a Box. https://youtu.be/mHzfhU8t5i8 I'll admit that any fondness I have for this song is wrapped into my fondness for the Human League and how unlikely it was for them to hit #1 again so many years later. It saved them from being labeled One Hit Wonders. Also, didn't Sulley sing the counterpoint in DYWM?
Who is more of a national treasure? A. Cyndi Lauper B. Dolly Parton C. Betty White Ladies that can light up any room just by their mere presence.
Nice Tardis, DJEJak. You may actually recognize my screen name.
I don't have many talents, but one of them is growing hair. Straight and thick. In my mid-50s, I still have a rather grandiose head of hair. I particularly remember Top Gun. I rocked the Iceman flat-top, and, if I say so myself, it was the bomb. My poor roommate went to the same barber to get the same cut, but was told his hair was too thin. Serious disappointment at the time. Now if I only displayed demonstrable talents for something more employable or beneficial to society. And BTW, while I prefer Pleasure Victim, Nunn hits it out of the park with TMBA. It's at least a 9, unusual as Tom describes for a movie ballad. Even The Motels' version is awesome.
I was originally going to include "Sledgehammer" on my list of the 80est Number One Songs of the 80s. But then I decided it was because of the video and not really the song.
That's all I have today. It's all I have to say.
"Smash Hits sent Tennant to New York to interview the Police, a group whose music he didn’t much like." Ha! Something else in common between Tennant and Tom! Still, great write-up!
99 Luftbalons getting a 9 makes me happy.
It made my short list. I might post an addendum of "honorable mentions" once the list is complete.
Yeah, BW may be much maligned, but it is one of my favorite 80s songs. As is Mr Mr's next. Where I'm going, will you follow?
I have no memory of this song. I do remember "White Nights." Vaguely.
Houston's vocals make Marilyn McCoo sound like a rank amateur. And that's not exactly easy to do.
I agree, so I had to include DD, but I only had 2 options.
I consider The Reflex as the list's example of 80s over-production and "style over substance. :
1985 had three of the top 5!
