I am back this week and ready to rock 'n roll with the 4M gals. You know these ladies by now: Xmas Dolly the head conductor, and co-conductors, Cathy, Callie, Stacy, and Becca. They are ready to ride the musical train with you.
This week they have a theme going on which is always fun: #1 Top 40 Hits for the Rock Era 1955-present.
Well now, this should be fun!
I was an '80s teen so, I have decided to hit that era for the top 40. Let's see what I have for you.
This singer hit the #1 chart of March 29, 1986. It is a funky sound and the video is just as funky. It was his only #1 hit.
Next: This next singer has had several successful hit songs with his original band and solo. This one hit #1 song was only for one week on July 19, 1986. This was taped during a jam session. I find it humorous that the lead singer is using his drum sticks as his microphone.
Finally: This singer's song was originally written by Prince in 1979 who went on to win a Grammy for writing the song. The artist who sings the song only hit #3 for the Top 100 Billboard charts but hit #1 on several other Top 40 song charts including dance in 1984. According to Wikipedia, the repeat of her name at the beginning of the song was actually an accident but the singer decided to keep it for the tract. A little tidbit, Stevie Wonder is also on the tract playing harmonica and some background vocals.
Well, there you have it folks. Make sure to link up and join the foray! Until next time...Naila Moon
