Episode 524: No. 2 Songs from 1979

Oh, we’re so close to the actual ’80s, we can almost taste it. Well, you definitely can’t hear it because the hit songs from 1979 bear little resemblance to the songs we’d love in our decade. This episode, we honor the songs from 1979 that went to No. 2 on the charts but no further. There are some real gems by Village People, Donna Summer, and more.

Episode 522: We Honor ‘Working Girl’

The movie Working Girl is 31 years old now (but she doesn’t look a day over 29). Okay, bad joke. Hosts Jen with One N and Gayle in DC take the lead for this episode with Spearsy and Brad in LA coming along as backseat drivers. Stay tuned for the trivia quiz at the end of the show!

Here are the Biggest One-Hit Wonders of the ’80s

Dexy's Midnight Runners

Did you know there was a National One-Hit Wonders Day? Why in the world someone would choose to honor some a dubious distinction is beyond me. I go back and forth in mind on this: Would I want to be called a one-hit wonder? On one hand, it means I did hit pay dirt with a song in my chosen profession. On the other hand, it means I ONLY hit pay dirt with one song in my chosen profession. Damned if you do or don’t in this world, amiright?

Eons ago here at Stuck in the ’80s, we did a series of podcasts on one-hit wonders in the ’80s. We went year by year and tried to single out the bands who struck gold only once. We got a lot of grief over our list, if memory serves. Yes, it’s a subjective list for sure. Here are the links to each show if you’d like to relive podcasting history.

One-Hit Wonders of the 1980s:

1980 | 1981 | 1982 | 1983 | 1984 | 1985 | 1986 | 1987 | 1988 | 1989

Episode 521: Forgotten Hits of 1983

 

It’s tough to find forgotten hits in 1983. We had to dig deep this week, and we’re pretty sure you’ll still remember these “somewhat forgotten” tunes by Ric Ocasek, Jackson Browne, Shalamar, Dave Edmunds, 38 Special and Night Ranger.
