According to the most recent issue Rolling Stone, here was the top 10 singles from October 25, 1985:
- “I Just Called to Say I Love You” by Stevie Wonder
- “Carribean Queen (No More Love on the Run)” by Billy Ocean
- “Hard Habit to Break” by Chicago
- “Purple Rain” by Prince and the Revolution
- “Lucky Star” by Madonna
- “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” by Wham!
- “On the Dark Side” by John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band
- “Let’s Go Crazy” by Prince and the Revolution
- “I’m So Excited” by The Pointer Sisters
- “Some Guys Have All the Luck” by Rod Stewart
I checked the trusty iPod and found that there are five of these inside its hard drive: numbers 1, 4, 6, 8, and 10. I was a little surprised that I didn’t have number 7. Has anyone seen that movie (Eddie and the Cruisers) lately? If I remember correctly, it had that whole “If-Jim-Morrison-Were-Alive” vibe to it. And, didn’t they make a sequel? Maybe I’ll check in the old Wal-Mart $5 bin … or not.
Anyway, how many of these songs are in your musical collection? Does does your possession (or lack thereof) surprise you?
