    That's true with some other songs that made the Hot 100 in the past. "Smoke On The Water" by Deep Purple (studio b/w live on the 45).

    From what I understand, "Twist..." was her last to make the Top 10. Next year's "Soul Kiss" missed it by that much. But yeah, after that . . .

    1984 was such an epic year for pop, maybe the best year since at least 1960, that you really can't go wrong with a chart from any week of the year. Great memories!

    This was the song parody about the breakup of the phone company, right? Where did it peak on the chart? Heard it quite a bit, back then.

    I’ve never heard it. Obviously it didn’t apply in the UK.:)

    I agree the Nina Hagen one is harsh, and unwarranted. She's an acquired taste for some, but I love her stuff.

    The Kajagoogoo review was a nice surprise. I love both the Limahl and the Nick Beggs-led eras.

    Scathing review of the original version of "Obsession." I wonder what the writer thought of the Animotion version?

    Duran Duran & Nena.

    I bought 99 Luftballons on a 12" single from Asda in Pudsey, West Yorkshire. I still play it fairly regularly.

    Pretty good chart. I voted for 11 songs.
    Probably the first time ever that I passed on two Paul McCartney songs. "Pipes Of Peace" should have been the single (it was in the UK and hit #1) and "The Man" is a much better Michael Jackson collaboration.

    The early 70's and the early 80's were brilliant for pop music, and not just because of the fantastic clothes and make up....

    from the lower and off charts:

    Nothing I absolutely adore here, but fairly some solid stuff.

    Another fan of Nina! Happy to hear it. There are not many of us around! I have been a huge fan since the late 1980s and have all her records. When I lived in Germany I was lucky enough to see her live and she didn’t disappoint. Yes she is an acquired taste and not for everyone.

    Poor Olivia struggling with 29 votes... It’s one of her best later records. Everything after this was downhill.:)

    I agree! I really don't dislike anything, but I'm not a "Think of Laura" kind-of-guy! Ride Like The Wind, yes!!!
