It sure doesn't seem like 30 years ago....
The following songs were in the Top 10 (Billbord Charts, USA) during the 4 weeks of February 1983:
- Down Under - Men At Work (1)
- Baby, Come To Me - Patti Austin (1)
- Africa - Toto (1)
- Shame On The Moon - Bob Seger and The Silver Bullet Band (2)
- Sexual Healing - Marvin Gaye (3)
- Stray Cat Strut - Stray Cats (3)
- Billie Jean - Michael Jackson (4)
- Do You Really Want To Hurt Me - Culture Club (5)
- Maneater - Daryl Hall and John Oates (6)
- Hungry Like The Wolf - Duran Duran (6)
- Dirty Laundry - Don Henley (7)
- You And I - Eddie Rabbitt (7)
- Rock The Casbah - Clash (8)
- We've Got Tonight - Kenny Rogers (9)
- Pass The Dutchie - Musical Youth (10)
- You Can't Hurry Love - Phil Collins (10)
The number in parentheses is the song's peak during February (not necessarily it's overall peak). I remember most of these, at least a bit. But I only own about 1/3.....
New twist: I made a youtube playlist w/ all 16 songs. Worth the trouble???
