  1. Fewer songs on this chart I recognize based on titles compared to some of the other ’80s charts you previously posted. Some good stuff on here. The Fine Young Cannibals tune was played to death on the radio in Germany, ironically to the point where it drove me crazy! 🙂

    • I didn’t know a lot of these songs either- while I was still into new music- it wasn’t the music that would show up that much on the Top 40…
