Throwback Thursday: The Top 10 Songs From The Summer of 1984 [Video]

I've argued the point here that 1984 may have been one of the greatest years for pop music in American history, and when compiling this list, it kind of confirms my point.

When songs like Night Ranger's 'Sister Christian', ZZ Top's 'Legs' and Scandal's 'The Warrior' can't even come close to cracking the Top Ten Summer Songs list from that year, it had to have been a good summer for tunes.
