You must of not been around when the song came out. IIRC, it was a was a huge R&B hit at the time, and their follow up "Love You Down" was a makeout hit for the high school set.

This song and the band was all over the radio in '85.

Per Wikipedia: The band was known for having the very wettest Jheri curl in the industry.
Now you know that meant they were the s*** back then if you had the wettest Jheri curl! :D

Okay, this might be pushing it a bit, but the song I'm going to share was on a 1979 album, but it was released as a single in early 1980 and had its chart run during the first half of the year. (So if anything, it might be considered a decade cusp song.)

"Too Hot" by Kool & The Gang:

I chose it because the title describes the weather where I am today.

I know! I know!  It's from 1979.  It peaked at #1 on Billboard, December 22.
It was also a #1 hit here in Canada, but not until the week of January 12, 1980.  I'd almost forgotten about that unti just recently as i was going through old chart listings.  I'm still so fascinated that I can actually call it an 80s hit, that I've been listening to it non stop the last few hours lol

But, about a month or so before the show, I got into a car accident that messed up my back and couldn't really dance for a while which meant that I wouldn't be prepared for the show-so I had to drop out.  :\'( :\'( :\'(  I was SOOO hoping to take home the First Place trophy instead of the Second Place trophy I took home the year before.

I can still remember a bit of the choreography.

Okay, here's one that would probably fall into the decade cusp, since it was recorded in 1979 and released as a single the same year, but peaked in the early part of 1980 on most charts. For example, it hit #1 in the band's native New Zealand in March of 1980. What song am I talking about? "I Got You" by Split Enz:

You said we're lovers
we could never be friends

Cause it's hot inside

cause it's hot inside
isn't that enough

I'm not in love

won't take you so far

Kenny also played bass for Toronto bands The Next and The Suspects as well as The Deserters.

Before General Public, before Fine Young Cannibals, there were these guys - they were something special!

The English Beat - Save It For Later (1982)  :)

That's right... certain members of this band went on to form/join the other two!! (They were also known simply as The Beat in their native UK.)

I know this song very well (even though I was only about 2 when it was popular; however, I heard it for the first time much later); and I also know two other songs by them: "I Confess" (same album) and "Mirror In The Bathroom" (1980, from album I Just Can't Stop It).

Here's my choice for today... "Shake It Up" by The Cars (1982).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXCn688oGF0

I'm choosing it since today is the 25th anniversary of the Northridge Earthquake (a 90's event, I know) and it has the word "Shake" in the title.

Thank you.  I'm a big fan from way back.  1983 was the year that changed my life forever because that was the year that First Offense was released in Canada.  I'm kind of pissed off because inflated ticket prices are preventing me from going to see him at the Junos this year.

Don't push a blade on a guy in shades oh no
Don't masquerade with a guy in shades oh no

From 1984, "Wouldn't It Be Good" by Nik Kershaw, who turns 61 today:


I posted that song a while back, but it bears repeating.  When Live Aid happened I was excited to be seeing my faves from the 60s and 70s who were still active. I wasn't particularly interested in most of the newer 80s acts of the time. The exception was Nik Kershaw whom I liked. He came on very early in the day, from the London portion of the show. He delivered a somewhat low key set that was well received. Discussing Live Aid the following week with my co-workers I mentioned him, and the one co-worker who even knew who Nik Kershaw was said he thought he was "too cerebral" and "went over the heads of the audience".  I don't know, see for yourself.

I'm sure lots of songs have been posted more than once in the same "Your _0s Song of the Day" threads from time to time. In fact, I've done that on at least one occasion in the 60's song thread.

As for the song itself... I actually did not know it at the time it was popular (I was 4 at the time) but I did learn it much later. As for Live Aid, I was semi-aware that he partook in the London portion of it because I read his bio on Wikopedia earlier, so that I could learn a little more about him for curiosity sake.

And for the record, I'm sure he's not related to a certain Dodgers ace pitcher who was born a few years later.

Drive

Well, "Magic" and "Drive" were back-to-back singles by The Cars, both from their 1984 album Heartbeat City. I know both of them myself. They were both big hits on the U.S. charts (in fact "Magic" topped the U.S. Mainstream Rock tracks chart; not so well outside the U.S.).

I probably would have back then if my household had cable tv, which it didn't. In fact, the only time(s) during the 1980s I ever remember watching cable tv was either at a friend's house in the latter part of the decade (even so, that friend would usually watch Nickelodoeon) or in a restaurant that had the tv set tuned to a cable channel.

I started watching VH1 in the late 1990s when "Pop Up Video" and "Rock & Roll Jeopardy" were active shows. That was still at someone else's home, however (my grandparents and uncles started subscribing to cable tv around then).

wouldn't it be good if we could wish ourselves

Wouldn't it be good to be on your side
the grass is always greener over there
wouldn't it be good if we could live

^ nice R.E.M. pick!  Not to steal your thunder, but I have to tell a little story...

My husband and I have relatives in northern New Jersey.  We drove to and were staying in a hotel there in 2010 for a special occasion, and attempting to go to the small restaurant place where it was being held.  We were having a rough time of it finding our way to the place (we had no GPS at the time) - I think we passed it on the wrong side three times, and kept making wrong turns.  We were forced onto the New Jersey Turnpike, and getting off there we ended up in the parking lot for the Meadowlands  ;D.  Needless to say we were more than a little annoyed.  At that point we dubbed the New Jersey state song to be "Can't Get There From Here"...

Here is that song - I dig the goofy video, too.

Blue Angel
"Lorraine"
1980

Somehow mystical sounding, as if it takes place late on an orange afternoon. I heard this on the radio in 1980 on a station that was one of the last remaining vestiges of the old freeform, underground hippie style. The album went nowhere. A few years later the lead singer became very successful in her own right.

Dan Hartman, I Can Dream About You

No more timing each tear that falls from my eyes
I'm not hiding the remedy to cure this old heart of mine

I can dream about you
if I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
you know how to hold me just right
I can dream about you
if I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
you know how to hold me just right

Moving sidewalks I don't see under my feet
climbing out from down here below
where the streets see me lonely for you

I can dream about you
if I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
you know how to hold me just right
I can dream about you
if I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
you know how to hold me just right

I can dream about you
I'm gonna press my lips against you
and hold you to me
I can dream about you
You know you've got me spellbound
what else could it be?

Moving sidewalks I don't see under my feet
driving out from the pain in my heart
cause it's you that I need

I can dream
I can dream
I can dream about you

I don't understand it I can't take my mind off loving you
not even for a minute
All night baby I'm caught up in the magic of seeing you
there's one thing to do

I can dream about you
if I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
you know how to hold me just right
I can dream about you
if I can't hold you tonight
I can dream about you
you know how to hold me just right
I can dream about you
if I can't hold you tonight

I have a little story for this dandy.  It was Chicago, summer 1983, and we had a big family get-together in the park scheduled for the afternoon.  We finally got our reserved space set up, started feeding folks and everything finally seemed to come together.  Until - someone pulled up nearby, not sure if they had a huge boombox or a loud car, but they were blasting their music so loud our family group could no longer converse.  I distinctly remember this specific song being blasted.  Well, as annoyed as I was  ::)  I didn't hold it against the song...

Yes, and it's even credited as a "1989 Version" (to distinguish from Rod Stewart's individual recording of it, which he performed in 1975). And yes, it was widely played in '90.

Therefore it can be considered a "decade cusp" song. :)

Not only that, it's a revival recording for both Rod and Ronald. Rod, as mentioned above, first recorded his version in '75, and Ron originally recorded the song in 1965 with his band the Isley Brothers (and sang lead on it).

It was widely played in the best part of 1990 (before August/September of ‘90)!!!!! Those earliest months of 1990 was the last time everything seemed right in the world for children of the 80s (Late Xers and XYers). The 90s weren’t as loose in the very beginning of 1990.

Late Xer and early Xennial music doesn’t get enough appreciation from the mainstream media in this century.

I liked their early 1987 hit "You Got It All"; that was one of their "soft pop" tunes, as was "Make It Real." "Crush On You" was more along the lines of dance-oriented tunes, as well as "Rocket 2U". In fact, the band was composed of siblings surnamed Wolfgramm, all of whom played at least one instrument...and I think they were all minors when the band was formed. :)

So, “Special Kinda Love” is when they fell off for you or before then?  ???

The Jets were Polynesian, but it seemed like everyone (including myself) thought they were Latino in the late 80s and 90s. “Special Kinda Love” sounds like a Latin Freestyle meets LAFace production song.

Did you know The Jets performed the “Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers” theme song in 1989? “Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers” was one of the most definitive cartoons of the late 80s to me. Like The Jets, “Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers” don’t get enough credit in today’s world. “CNDRR” was one of the best cartoons of the 1989 to 1990 TV season along with “The Simpsons”, “Beetlejuice”, “Super Mario Super Show”, and “Captain N The Game Master”. I miss that whole 1989 to 1990 TV season, but I won’t talk about that here.

The Jets were the late 80s to late Xers and XYers my age. “Crush on You” — modernism in the 80s! :D

Honouring the birthday of Roland Orzabal of Tears For Fears with "Sowing The Seeds Of Love" from 1989.

I was just talking about this one in my ‘Major Late 80s’ thread. What better way to usher in the late 60s revival in ‘89 than to use artists that Xers were familiar with? I think “New Kids on the Block” were the last group in the late 80s and early 90s to use  “The Beatles” sub-sounding songs for their albums with the single “Tonight”, but that was after the late 60s revival was in vogue and the early 70s revival was coming in.

I hear this song all of the time when shopping at clothing stores like Kohl’s. It used to be that you heard “Everybody Wants To Rule The World” exclusively on radio in the 2000s and early 2010s, but the only “Tears For Fears” single the DJs want to play now is this one. I miss the late 80s and early 90s. Interesting times.

It is the "Beatlesque" sound that drove to this song. Their other (fore-mentioned) songs are overplayed.

The “Beatlesque” sound and everything going on at the time drove people to this song.

The seeds were never sown in the 80s or 90s. What a depressing world.  :\'(

That's right, it's a "decade cusp" song. I am well aware that it was released in UK (the singer's native country) and elsewhere in 1989, but the U.S. got it as a hand-me-down by the start of '90, when it became a hit there. It's one of my personal favourites too. O0

This was one of the hottest club tunes of its time (late 80's clubbing).  Whenever the DJ cued it up, the dance floor seemed to get twice as crowded as before, and spontaneously a "conga line" or two would spring up and start snaking around the room.  WOO-HOO!  I say this from first hand experience (yes, I frequently went clubbing in that era).  Good times!    8)

Did you know The Jets performed the “Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers” theme song in 1989? “Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers” was one of the most definitive cartoons of the late 80s to me. Like The Jets, “Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers” don’t get enough credit in today’s world. “CNDRR” was one of the best cartoons of the 1989 to 1990 TV season along with “The Simpsons”, “Beetlejuice”, “Super Mario Super Show”, and “Captain N The Game Master”. I miss that whole 1989 to 1990 TV season, but I won’t talk about that here.


They apparently performed the "album" version to that theme song, but Jeff Pescetto sang the version used on TV.

No.

You're probably thinking of Peter, Paul, & Mary, who recorded a song of that title for their 1962 debut album (then Bobby Bare recorded his own version a year later and scored a big hit with it).

There is also a song called "I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)", recorded by The Proclaimers in 1988; they ended up having a big hit with it five years later.

That's true, it did get released as a single in November of '79...and ultimately peaked at #1 in January of 1980. Therefore, we can let it stand. :)



This was played on the radios January 1980.

So were lots of songs popular years before then, I'm sure.



(Considering today's date, I'd venture there are some two-decade hits that are popular going on right now...)

Yes, definitely. That sorta thing always happens when a calendar decade changes. A song will be released as a single in December of a year ending in nine, start getting radio airplay then, and its chart run will continue into the following month, when the tens digit of the year changes! :D

So it was popular there after it was popular here, huh? It often seems many songs are like that; other countries get them as hand-me-downs. Many international hits over the years have been popular in the U.S. after other countries.

Something a little different - this (almost) title track was written by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd (who also helps out on guitar); Pete Townshend's treatment is IMO brilliant.  Was playing this vinyl LP a few days ago, this song seemed right to post...

(Incidentally "White City" refers to a section of London, or "estate", that had gang problems...)

I just felt if you're not posting a video then what's the point of being in this thread?

Guys, I think you two need to seriously consider that everybody is entitled to their own opinions and thoughts but you guys also need to know when it's appropriate to react.

Just like Thriller in 1983, they could've made this song into a music video, they could've had all the Jacksons enter a haunted hotel, have John Landis direct it and they'd be in this hotel telling a spooky story and I'm trying to understand why they named this song Heartbreak Hotel cause maybe it had something to do with Elvis Presley who died 3 years before this song came out, How'd you create this music video AG?

Well, Howard, your idea for a video sounds plausible.  Note that MTV wasn't going when the album was released, as the release happened in late 1980.  The song name had nothing to do with Presley's song; in fact, that's why they renamed it "This Place Hotel" to avoid confusion.  I remember when the album came out - it was before Thriller but after Off The Wall so Michael was still flying high, so to speak.  (Not like after Thriller, though, which catapulted Michael into another stratosphere, if that's even possible.)  I always thought the album was underrated, probably because the "hits" culled from it weren't as popular as Off The Wall favorites.  But the album is full of great tracks.  Other favorites of mine from the album: Time Waits For No One, Give It Up, Walk Right Now, Your Ways.  It took me a little time to warm up to Can You Feel It but I like that one too.

Slight correction - Elvis died 3 years before the album, not after.

If he wanted to do a music video in 1980 it would have to be based on the lyrics he sang, I thought when I heard the song at first he sounded and sang like he was entering a haunted house with all those creepy sounds and noises and heavy breathing.

Live and sin
Ten years ago on this day my heart was yearning
I promised I would never, ever be returning
Where my baby broke my heart and left me yearning
As we walked into the room
There were faces staring, glaring, tearing through me
Someone said "Welcome to your doom"
Then they smiled with eyes that looked as if they knew me
This is scaring me
We walked up the stairs still concealing gloom
There were two girls sitting in my room
She walked up to my face
And said "This is the place"
You said "Meet you right here at noon"
This is (Heartbreak hotel)
Welcome to (Heartbreak hotel)
So this is (Heartbreak hotel)
This place is (Heartbreak hotel)
Hope is dead
She thought that I had cheated for another lover
I turn my back to see that I am undercover
Now I can't convince this girl there ain't no other
Someone's evil to hurt my soul
Every smile's a trial thought in beguile to hurt me
This is scaring me
Then the man next door had told
She's been here in tears for fifteen years
This is scaring me
We came to this place where the vicious dwell
And found that wicked women run this strange hotel
There was Sefra and Sue
Every girl that I knew
And my baby said love is through
This is (Heartbreak hotel)
Welcome to (Heartbreak hotel)
So evil (Heartbreak hotel)
This place is (Heartbreak hotel)
Someone's takin' my heart (Heartbreak hotel)
This is heartbreak hotel (Heartbreak hotel)
Ten years ago today (Heartbreak hotel)
This is heartbreak hotel (Heartbreak hotel)
Someone's takin' my heart (Heartbreak hotel)
This is heartbreak hotel (Heartbreak hotel)
Ten years ago today (Heartbreak hotel)
Hurtin' my heart (Heartbreak hotel)
You break my baby's heart (Heartbreak hotel)
This is heartbreak hotel (Heartbreak hotel)
Just what you do to me

Yes, but that is not an eighties song. It was from 1990. Please stop assuming the decade of a song without knowing specifically what year it's from.


The Byrds also briefly reunited in 1990 to record a couple of new songs for their box set (they've since had another box set that is better) and one of them was "From A Distance". It was released BEFORE the Midler version and is the one I heard first. I (predictably) like the Byrds version far better, but I don't think many people know about it. I won't post it hear because it's from 1990. It can be found on Youtube. Check it out.

I saw INXS with Michael Hutchence live in a club sometime in the 80s. I was not a fan in the least but a friend of mine loved them and dragged me along. I don't really remember much about it.

I know, I was joking. I'll never forget his appearance on the second Farm Aid in 1986. He sat down at the piano and basically improved a song on the spot about the plight of the farmers. And it was a good song, too. Even the band was having a hard time following him, so he sang to the guitar player "Kenny won't you play...Kenny won't you play" and even THAT sounded like part of the song. Amazing! Then he proceeded to make some off color remarks about then-president Ronald Ragan at which point the network yanked him off the air mid-sentence and went to a commercial. How different times were then. More recently people seemed to say any old thing they wanted about Trump on the air.

Technically speaking it's not the original. It was commissioned for the "Officer and a Gentleman" film and Buffy never recorded it herself at the time. She did her own version later. So I guess you could call it "the songwriter's version". That's what she calls it too.
