Before we get to 1984 – one from 1982 that I completely forgot . . . – as an aside to this – A long time ago ( 1996 ) I got a call on my cell phone – answered it – a woman asked if “Jack” was there – I said no he’s not – who’s this?? She said this is Diane . . . I asked her if she needed help dribbling off her “Bobby Brooks” – probably 10 seconds of silence and then she laughed for about 30 seconds – She says this is not Jack’s number – right? I said no it isn’t – can I help?? – Giggling she managed to say thank you for the bright spot of her week ( this was like Thursday or Friday ) We said good-bye to each other and she went on her way . . .
Any way – on with the songs . . .
One of my personal favorites from 1984 – made it to #81 – a wee bit of John not Cougar but Lennon . . .
This next?? – I know it’s from 1971 – but you just can’t do “Yes” and not have this playing on a track somewhere in your head – you’re welcome . . .
Kinda sorta had to do this next one – Enjoy . . .
And I found this as well . . .
Nena had a goal – she wanted to release an English language version in her country and a German language version in the US and have both hit number one – she didn’t make it but she tried . . .
And of course . . .
The English version in the artist’s native country and the “foreign” language in the us both number 1 hits?? – only been done once – the Japanese language version charted #1here in 1963 . . .
So many to choose from – gotta stop somewhere – so here’s the number 1 for the year 1984 . . .
Have Fun! – Run the Gun! – and remember – Fish Heads are Cheap!!
