This is a complete playlist of all the No.1 Billboard Hot 100 songs from 1980. There are a few tunes here that I haven't heard in a very long time and some wonderful memories here.
Being from the UK, it's interesting to hear tracks from the charts of another country. After listening to this selection it has become even more noticeable just how the quality of chart music has declined over the years. Glorious bass lines, vocalists who sang from the heart, meaningful lyrics and memorable choruses - how I miss the early 80s!
So, which is your No.1 favourite here? Mine is definitely Another Brick In The Wall by Pink Floyd, although Blondie's Call Me came a very close second.
1. KC and the Sunshine Band - Please Don't Go
2. Rupert Holmes - Escape (Pina Colada Song)
3. Michael Jackson - Rock With You
4. Captain and Tennille - Do That To Me One More Time
5. Queen - Crazy Little Thing Called Love
6. Pink Floyd - Another Brick In The Wall (Part 2)
7. Blondie - Call Me
