One response to “AMERICAN TOP 40- THE 1980’S- WEEK OF NOVEMBER 29, 1980

  1. I recognize most of these except Deep Inside My Heart…Meisner. The opening is nearly identical to Jackson Browne’s Running On Empty. And, I hadn’t heard Without Your Love in YEARS. Girls Can Get It, I don’t remember, either.
