Last I delved into my top five songs book, I found some interesting posts.
Back to the well.
Again, I have not changed any spellings.
On this date:
I didn't start writing in the book until November of 1982.
The first entry - 11/30
5. GLORIA - Laura Branagin
4. Nobody - Slyvia
3. The Girl Is Mine - Paul Mcartney and Michal Jackson
2. Stepp'n Out - Joe Jackson
1. Rock This Town - Stray Cats
Anyone have any idea what Nobody is? I have no memory of it.
5. Uptown Girl - Billy Joel
4. Tommorow's (Just Another Day) - Madness
3. Heart and Soul - Huey Lewis and the News
2. Say, Say, Say - Michael Jackson and Paul Mcartney
1. It Must Be Love - Madness
A few days later, Love is a Battlefield made its debut.
5. Strut - Sheena Easton
4. Out of Touch - Hall and Oates
3. On the Dark Side - John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band
2. Wake Me Up Before You Go- Go - Wham
1. Cool It Now - New Edition
Prince's Darling Niki and Sugar Don't Bite by Sam Harris (anyone remember that song) made big splashes soon thereafter.
5. Money for Nothing - Dire Straits
4. And We Danced - Hooters
3. You Belong to the City - Glenn Frey
2. Power of Love - Huey Lewis and the News
1. Miami Vice Theme - Jan Hammer
Holy shit! A few days later, two songs debuted that I have no memory of at all -- Sidewalk Talk - Madonna and Girls Are More Fun - Ray Parker Jr.
The last entry is from 7/15
5. Modern Woman - Billy Joel
4. That Was Then, This is Now - Monkees
3. Mad About You - Belinda Carlisle
2. We Don't Have to Take Our Clothes Off - Jermaine Stewart
1. Stuck With You - Huey Lewis and the News
The Jermaine Stewart '45 was the last one I bought until the indie rock craze of the early 90's.
On 9/1, I wrote, "Today I'm stopping the Top 5. I've been doing it since Nov. 82. I might start again in Jan. 87 until then this book will just gather dust!!"
Or be brushed off and put on the internet.
