80s on 8

COUNTDOWNS, MUSIC, POP

No “maybe” about calling Blondie in the ’80s on 8 Big 40 Countdown: May 2, 1980

May 5, 2014

Before Carly Rae Jepsen, there was Blondie (and music still on MTV…) – and there was no “Maybe” about giving them a call. Call Me tops this week’s Big 40 Countdown, which takes us back to May 1980. Christopher Cross’s Ride Like the Wind and Air Supply’s Lost in Love were about as hot as Pac-Man, leg warmers, and shoulder pads. Billy Preston & Syreeta’s With You I’m Born Again as well as Pink Floyd’s Another Brick In The Wall were about as big as Dolly Parton’s hair. Be sure to check out the rest of the hair-raising jams below!
