Top 5 One Hit Wonders Of 1980

I skipped the first two years of the 80's, and after seeing this top five you'll probably know why. I do like the songs on this top five though. I have a feeling there's at least one song that you guys won't know. What can I say though...I'm an 80's music dork.

1) Devo - Whip It (I love this song in a major way, and I honestly have since 1980. I can still remember cranking my little RCA one speakered radio/cassette player whenever Whip It came on the radio. Flower pot hats forever! Break yo mama's back!)

2) The Vapors - Turning Japanese (Just a fun song all around. This one is actually about the face one makes during an orgasm.)

3) Benny Mardones - Into The Night (It's a ballad that only this guy named Victim Of Fate could appreciate lyrically. It's about an older guy who basically falls in love with a 16 year old girl. Great song.)

4) Steve Forbert - Romeo's Tune (I had forgotten about this song untill I heard it on XM Radio a while ago. I never knew the name of the song or who sang it. There's really no song like it, and you'll never hear a song like it. It's a damn fine tune.)

5) Sugar Hill Gang - Rapper's Delight (Not bad for early rap. Actually early rap is much better than the crap you hear these days.)

About Me

My photo
Kalamazoo, Michigan, United States
I'm 38. I'm addicted to Xbox 360 gaming and Dallas Stars hockey. I make a decent living at a boring job where I run two autoclaves and do various other tasks. My escape from this boring as hell life is video games, hockey, and music. I generally listen to Metal music, but I also love 80's tunes as well as 70's tunes. I have an unusual love for the band Overkill. They do it for me for some reason. Blitz is GOD!
