    Seems like every time I mention Rolling Stone's "Top 100 albums of the '80s" and people ask me what #1 was, it gets the same response - "Wasn't that released in 1979?"
    The answer: Yes, just about everywhere except the US.

    Heh! We're already into 1980 and we're still talking about the 70s. I thought you guys were in such a hurry to get to the 80s.:D

    To be fair, everything we've discussed at this point was recorded in the 70s.

    True. And "Please Don't Go" had most of its momentum in the 70s.

    I wouldn't go that far. The singles charts weren't too adventuresome - although even there, you get some truly epic standout #1s - but on the album front the '80s were quite another thing. Plenty of innovation going on there. I think the difference was that radio was becoming far more fragmented than it was in the '70s, both by genre and by geography (the rise of music on FM, with its shorter-range transmitters, and the death of music on AM with its long range and enormous footprint helped accelerate that trend). And the continue move away from singles and toward albums meant that most of the focus - and the innovation - went into the long form. It didn't matter so much what happened on the singles charts, and they became much more lowest-common-denominator than they'd been before.

    Except, I distinctly remember purchasing it at the University of Maryland Record Co-op in late December 1979. I remember this because I flew out to California to visit family 2 days after Christmas, and I was playing the album while packing my bags for the trip.

    I'll just say that each era was unique in their own way in which sociopolitical factors all played a role that can never be duplicated again. I don't even try to compare them anymore. There's no point.

    It's time once again for me to pick the song I most would have liked to see get to #1 that didn't.

    There are a lot of close calls that I can't quite see getting this prize. Here are a few of my favorite near misses:

    Every Time I Think of You (the Babys); Time Passages; September; Renegade; Arrow Through Me; Gold; Good Girls Don't; Dreaming; Dream Police; Rock and Roll Fantasy.

    All good songs, but one release in 1979 towered above all others, and clearly deserves the award. Of course I'm talking about the Christmas perennial Wonderful Christmastime by Paul McCartney and Wings. What would Christmas be without it?



    OK, I'm pulling your legs. The song IS a perennial, but a controversial one to be sure. I like it fine, but I can TOTALLY see why many don't. :wiggle::shh:

    This was a tough choice for me this year, actually, because I don't see any iconic songs that I think should get the award, and it's pretty much a tie for me as to which I like the best.

    I could have picked Dreaming, which is a great song, or Good Girls Don't, which is also great. But I don't really like the Knack that much, and Blondie will be getting a lot of attention soon enough, so I passed on those.

    So, my choice for song I would have liked to see get to #1 (but didn't) is one I talked about before, Getting Closer by Paul + Wings. The crucial tiebreaker: I just finished reading a book about Paul McCartney in the 70s, so I have some interesting facts to share about this period of his life! So, Getting Closer it is!

    Paul and Wings had a phenomenal run in 1976, culminating in their record-smashing world tour that produced the triple #1 album Wings Over America. But things were not all perfect in Wingsland. Paul had been having trouble with his brilliant but mercurial guitarist Jimmy McCulloch. One day, he received a call from Steve Marriott, who informed him that Jimmy had decided to join him in a reformed Small Faces lineup. Paul shrugged, and that was it for Jimmy in Wings. That Small Faces lineup did not last long, and alas neither did McCulloch, who overdosed and died in mid-September, 1979, aged just 26 years old. What a waste.

    Below: Jimmy and Paul

    [​IMG]

    The next year was a weird one. Linda got pregnant, precluding any touring. Paul's step-daughter Mary was now 14 and an early punk superfan. Punk was a direct challenge to Paul and the other aging 60s rockers. He toyed with the idea of heading in that direction, even going so far as creating private punk nicknames for himself and Linda (Paul called himself 'Noxious Fumes' and Linda was 'Vile Lin'). He also wrote a jokey punk takeoff called 'Boil Crisis' but never recorded it.

    Instead of going the punk route, Wings went in the opposite direction, recording the folky album London Town and a very unrocklike song dedicated to the area where he lived in Scotland called Mull of Kintyre. Paul was doubtful about releasing Kintyre, even recording a more rocking song called Girls School for the other side of the single, but in the end the British public made its preference known, and Kintyre became a super smash, topping the UK charts for 9 weeks. It became, for a brief time, the best selling single in UK history, beating the record previously held by She Loves You.

    In 1979, Paul decided he needed to reconstitute Wings again. He hired guitarist Laurence Juber to replace Jimmy. Paul had met him in the loo a year earlier; he was introduced to his future guitarist at the urinals by none other than Herbie Flowers, the bassist who had created the immortal bass part for Walk on the While Side. Must have been an interesting bathroom break with all those great musicians there!

    Paul moved over to Columbia Records, where he got a fantastic financial deal inspired by his recent mega success. He was hoping to toughen up his sound, but the resulting album, Back to the Egg, was a mixed bag of ideas. Their first single with the new lineup, Goodnight Tonight, was very successful but hardly rock. Paul, still clinging to the old sixties ideals, refused to put it on the forthcoming album, which affected the sales of the long player.

    [​IMG]

    Both singles released from the album were just moderate hits, and the album only got to #8 in America, a bit of a disappointment. While this was going on, he was also screwing around by himself in the studio, recording a bunch of songs that would eventually be released as a solo album, McCartney II, a sequel of sorts to his first solo record, McCartney. Paul found it energizing to be temporarily freed of the band, and was tiring of the idea of Wings. But the group would last until the next year, when an unfortunate incident in Japan helped to lead to the eventual demise of Wings. But that's for another time!

    Below: the cover photo for Wings' final album Back to the Egg

    [​IMG]

    Getting Closer is, as I mentioned before, one of my favorite songs of his from the late seventies. Like another fave, Junior's Farm, it has a ton of energy and hooks aplenty. Yet it also updates his sound a bit to the power pop of that time. It didn't really make much of a chart impact, which I've never been able to understand, although I do recall hearing it frequently on the radio back then.

    Fun fact: Paul ran into David Bowie in 1979 and played the soon-to-be-released Back to the Egg for him, asking him which songs he liked and which ones he didn't. Bowie gave him a complete critique of the numbers, telling Paul which ones he personally would keep and which ones he would discard. Given Bowie's art rock proclivities at the time, he suggested releasing the short surreal word salad 'The Broadcast' as the album's first single. Paul declined, but that certainly would have been an offbeat move had Paul made it!

    Well, I know exactly three of Holmes' songs. I do despise Escape, but I like Him, and even like Timothy, despite or maybe because of its utter weirdness. So I don't think I qualify as a hater. To quote a popular singer of the time, 'Two Out of Three Ain't Bad!'. :)

    Please Don't Go

    I had a lot of fun dismissing most of KC's big disco hits, so here's another surprise: I really like Please Don't Go.

    OK, a few important details to handle first. The lyrics are terrible. And he looks like a big goof in the video making those puppy dog eyes while singing those words. He's not the greatest singer and seems to strain occasionally, but even that works in the context of this song. You don't need to have Tom Jones' pipes to pull this particular song off.

    What I like: the ambience of the song is interesting. I like the droney sound in the background (Strings? Synths? I'm not sure what it is, but it's nice). I also like that it kicks itself up slightly as it goes on. It sounds eighties but it also doesn't sound eighties. I dig that it has a somewhat odd structure: where is the chorus? Is it all chorus? It's a bit repetitive, but not nearly so much as many of the dance songs in his canon, which literally repeat the same ten second chunk 20 times and then the song is over.

    I'm glad he tried to do something different for once, and I personally think he pulled it off. Kudos!

    I know. To quote a number from Rodgers & Hammerstein's The King And I: "Is . . . a puzzlement!"

    I certainly got on board, for sure. Can't say for the others . . .

    I agree - I don't get the hate for this. I really like it. Great way to start off the '80s.

    This song was a very slow climber, not hitting No. 1 until it's 20th week on the chart. Still, it holds the record for being the first No. 1 of the new decade.

    That could be - the Co-op sold imported albums. I don’t have it anymore, so I can’t check. I got rid of all of my vinyl in the late 1980s when I converted to CDs (big mistake, btw)

    I’m convinced that Paul was stoned when he wrote and recorded “Wonderful Christmastime” - I never really liked it and you have to hear it a bazillion times every December. But, I like “Getting Closer” quite a bit, and I also like the Back to the Egg album even though it’s a bit of a mess. There are a number of fine tunes on that LP.

    KC and the Sunshine Band - Please Don't Go

    I don't think I've heard a KC ballad until this one. He and the band are better at doing dance tunes. The song is really boring for the first 2 minutes and then it finally turns into something enjoyable for the last minute and a half. I appreciate that the arrangement gets beefier as the song builds. It just takes too long to get there.

    Things looked so bright for KC. He had 2 big hits in early 1980 and then that was it aside from a surprise hit a couple years later that we will get to. It ended so quickly for the poor guy despite releasing a few more albums.

    It certainly seems especially frothy compared with John's "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)," certainly, dunnit?

    I like it, too.

    On a recent Sirius-XM 80s on 8 Big 80s Top 40 countdown, the one from the first week of Jan. 1980, they played this.

    Although I didn't particularly care for this ballad at the time, my music tastes weren't as developed as a sr. in high school, I like it now.
    I blasted it in my car. Good to hear.

    Yes, Pina Colada has the unique distinction of the only Hot 100 No. 1 to rise to the top spot IN TWO SEPARATE DECADES.

    Of course, it was only a second rise to the top, on another week, as many No. 1s have done (trading places with the No. 2), but.... this was in the 70s decade, and in the 80s decade.
    Pretty nifty.
    A chart accomplishment.

    Here are the charts the week of the feat:
    As always, my favorites, the songs I think were most important/ meaningful/ different, are highlighted.
