Kill or Save: UK No.1-hits of the 80s

Recommended Posts

WHERE THE FUCK IS PRINCE you deaf sons-of-bitches?  No #1 songs, I mean it’s just Prince after all.  When Doves Cry was #1 here for five weeks!  Ever heard of him? I see 1999 made it #2, bravo (though somehow linked to Little Red Corvette).

 

 

Ignoring the rest of your diatribe, this I entirely agree with. Probably the most talented musician of the late 20th century. For some bizarre reason his only UK number one single was The Most Beautiful Girl In The World. Occasionally (mostly around election time) I find myself utterly bewildered by my countrymen.

I was excited for 1984 since that was the year I was born, and I've made a playlist of hit songs from the year. This list doesn't match mine. There's songs that SirC mentioned, but also The Cars and Van Halen and Ghostbusters, or Huey Lewis Sports and Morris Day and Cyndi Lauper carrying over? I wouldn't necessarily upvote all of them but they're memorable. The year began with Michael Jackson's hair on fire and ended with the Jacksons' finale. There's also all those good indie records but I did not expect to see them here.

Ah I remember now too many powers of love all in one go and if Huey Lewis and the power of love cubed had been here that'd have got squarely rooted too.

‘Move Closer’ ....  What is it about that slow melancholy sap is attractive to your ear or emotions?  WHAT (I want an answer, YOU made it #1 ffs).

 

It's really sexy.  I don't expect you to understand what that means.

Part of my aversion to it stems from knowing how capable he had been up to then. All those award-winning albums of the 70s and only 2-3 years previously he had produced Hotter than July, which had 4 pretty decent top 10 singles. I know he did have some (mostly very minor ) hits afterwards but I can't remember any of them  - my recollection is he pretty much killed his career/musical credibility with one (IMHO) awful song.

There are several better 'last 10 minutes at the disco quick grope' songs on this list - notably Move Closer and the FGTH Power of Love.

 

Just a reminder for those bemoaning Stevie's lack of quality No.1 action his harmonica playing does feature on There Must Be An Angel

He's also the one playing the harmonica in Chaka Khan's I Feel for You!
