Well, I finally made up my mind! There is one and only one #1 song this week and the world can again be at peace. Oh, look over there! It's Dionne Warwick before she became a grouchy old lady and Elton John.......before he became a grouchy old lady. Lots of men and groups are clogging up the countdown, but the rise of the women would be coming soon, so let's enjoy them while they're here. KISS had a hit in 1985? Yes, they did. A good one. Prince and Sheila E. each show up twice in the top 10, Elton appears twice in the top 30 (he is a "friend" in Dionne and Friends) and George Michael is here with Wham! and singing backup for Elton on Wrap Her Up. Miami Sound Machine didn't think Gloria Estefan was important enough yet to call themselves Gloria Estefan and the Miami Sound Machine. Take that, Gloria. Remember to click the links below for some 80s wonderfulness. Laters.
