  1. Aw, the ‘80s. I loved “Ebony and Ivory” and would have given it an A+, at least at the time – undoubtedly, in large part because it was performed by two of my favorite artists, Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder. I think today I’d still give it a B.

    I also really liked “Tainted Love,” a song I’m now much less fond of. It was literally played to death on the radio in Germany! To be fair, “Ebony and Ivory” wasn’t exactly suffering from under exposure either, but I guess to me it holds up better than Soft Cell.

    In general, when I’m listening to ‘80s music nowadays, I’m oftentimes somewhat in disbelief how much I liked certain songs at the time.

    • I am right now listening to songs from a Top 40 June 1983 incredibly good… I like the Paul and Stevie “What’s That Your Doing” much better than Ebony and Ivory.

  2. I got sick of Ebony & Ivory. It was played to death in my area. I’m even more sick of Jenny. Tainted Love was played to death.

    Wow. I can tell that I was a serious radio listener back then…since I was 15 at the time. I was thinking I’ve Never Been to Me was earlier than 1982…like late 70s or something. I remember the song. It never gets played, anymore, considering it made it to #3.

    Three I don’t recognize…Without You, I Don’t Know Where to Start and Murphy’s Law. A lot of good music…backdrop to my teen years.

    Heh. Loverboy. I love When It’s Over. Every time I think of Loverboy, now, I think of Mike Reno complaining that Nirvana destroyed his career.
