    Good 6
    Okay 9
    Bad 25

    Just heard 20 of these last month.

    39. THE NEXT TIME I FALL – PETER CETERA WITH AMY GRANT

    Kinda what Grant said to Vince Gill years later, while she was still married to Gary Chapman.

    37. STAY THE NIGHT – BENJAMIN ORR

    Never noticed that weird female laugh at the very end of the song until hearing it this time.

    29. LOVE YOU DOWN – READY FOR THE WORLD

    [​IMG]

    #66 Freddie Jackson "Tasty Love"

    [​IMG]

    #84 Lionel Richie "Deep River Woman"

    Lionel with.... Alabama? His 14th solo single, and first not to be a top 10. Peaked at #71.

    #99 Paul Simon "Graceland"

    Not surprised it didn't make the top 40, but it's better than most of the ones that did.

    Won't make the top 40

    #59 Jesse Johnson & Sly Stone "Crazay"

    IdRatherBeSkiing Sherbert is not and never will be ice cream

    I thought Graceland was a much bigger hit.

    #81 peak. Shoulda done better than that. It did make the top 40 in Ireland, Belgium & New Zealand though.

    Rolling Stone Interview with Carrie Fisher:

    RS: You were married to Paul Simon. Are you able to enjoy his music and dissociate it from your personal relationship with him?

    CF: Absolutely, though I do like the songs he wrote about our relationship. Even when he’s insulting me, I like it very much. If you’re gonna be insulted, that’s the way to go. “Graceland” has part of us in it.

    15: THE WILD BOYS - DURAN DURAN

    Am I the only one who feels this song is a bit homoerotic?

    On a side note, I never heard this song until today



    And how is this song an auditory gem?

    They did Hall & Oates "Family Man" as a lost hit/treasure trove/auditory gem/etc earlier this week too. I was like WTF?!

    Just heard 21 of these songs last month.

    38: IN NEON - ELTON JOHN

    First time hearing this one. Don't need to hear it again.

    19: DO WHAT YOU DO - JERMAINE JACKSON

    [​IMG]

    10: I WOULD DIE 4 U - PRINCE & THE REVOLUTION

    Anyone else remember the dance moves for this one? When he sings "Die" make a gun with your thumb and index finger & point it at your temple. When he says "for" hold up your four fingers. When he says "you", point at the girl you're dancing with.

    01: LIKE A VIRGIN - MADONNA

    Have always hated this one and "Material Girl". I admit they are catchy, but that makes it worse because they get stuck in my head and I can't stand it!

    #61 Deep Purple "Knocking At Your Back Door"

    The intro and opening riff are really cool, but then it starts to suck.

    #99 Frankie Goes To Hollywood "Two Tribes"

    Dat video

    That was quite the big hit back in the day. Can't understand what's so 'lost' about it.

    Although I did hear 'Take Off' by Bob and Doug McKenzie and Geddy Lee on one of those the other day. That was kinda cool.

    They are not very careful about December countdown and a January countdown of the next year.

    For me... the Beavis & Butthead picture would apply to the majority of those 1989 songs.

    I tuned it in and heard Milli Vannilli and just tuned it back out. No countdown with MV in it can be any good.

    I'm glad I was out of the country during this countdown.

    I think this was the same as last year's one.

    Best song ...

    I was listing to this countdown coming back from Tucson after watching a Phoenix Rising game.

    I enjoyed that Rick Astley song, I don't get to hear that song much anymore.

    30. LITTLE LIAR - JOAN JETT & THE BLACKHAWKS

    Wish I heard this song more often

    #48 Tommy Conwell & The Young Rumblers "If We Never Meet Again"

    Not bad. The singer looks like Daryl Hall, but with John Cafferty's mouth.

    #49 Huey Lewis & The News "Give Me the Keys"

    Musically, it barely sounds like HL&TN to me. Maybe a tad bit like "The Heart Of Rock And Roll" - but a jazzy organ remix of it? If it weren't for Huey's voice, I would never have guessed it was them.

    #53 Fleetwood Mac "As Long As You Follow"

    I think this would have been top 40 if it was made like 7 years earlier. It sounds very early-80s yacht-rocky.

    #58 House Of Lords "I Wanna Be Loved"

    Released by Simmons Records. As in 'Gene Simmons'. The label's logo? A bag of money, of course.

    [​IMG]

    #84 Pet Shop Boys "Left To My Own Devices"

    Didn't like it back then, but after a roommate played the album over and over in the early 90s, it kinda grew on me.

    Will never make the top 40

    I forgot about this song. It's a good song. Joan proves she's not just a cover band.
