Kim Carnes, Smokey Robinson + Stars on 45 top the ’80s on 8 Big 40 Countdown: May 30, 1981

June 2, 2014

1981: year of the royal wedding, MS-DOS, and the space shuttle Columbia. But the early ’80s weren’t all about Lady Diana Spencer and her royal beau. In late May of ’81, Kim Carnes sang about Bette Davis Eyes, Smokey Robinson was all about Being With You, and Stars on 45’s Medley ruled the charts.
