’80s Party Weekend on WFGR
The weather is great and what could be better than another '80s Party Weekend on 98.7 WFGR. All the top hits from the '80s would sound so good - crank it up and have a great weekend. Going out on the boat or up north - download the WFGR App and take us along.
Let you take you through the 1980s with the songs that were number one this week.
1980: DIANA ROSS - UPSIDE DOWN: Diana was so hot to start the '80s and her career was on fire.
1981: DIANA ROSS & LIONEL RICHIE - ENDLESS LOVE: One of the biggest wedding songs of all time.
1982: CHICAGO - HARD TO SAY I'M SORRY: Chicago would find their groove again in the '80s
1983: BILLY JOEL - TELL HER ABOUT IT: This is one of Billy's best videos and we've all seen it. MTV actually played videos in 1983.
1984: JOHN WAITE - MISSING YOU: Former Baby's lead singer gets a solo #1
1985: DIRE STRAIGHTS - MONEY FOR NOTHING: Another amazing video we saw on MTV. Who knew that was Sting singing "I Want, I Want My MTV" borrowing the medley from his own Police song "Don't Stand So Close To Me"
1986: HUEY LEWIS & NEWS - STUCK WITH YOU: Once asked Huey what brought him to play the Alibi on Alpine and he said about $500. Yes that was a good show!
1987: WHITNEY HOUSTON - DIDN'T WE ALMOST HAVE IT ALL: One of her many strong ballads.
1988: BOBBY McFERRIN - DON'T WORRY BE HAPPY: He was also featured this week on One Hit Wonder Weds Night Shift.
1989: MILLI VANILLI - GIRL I'M GONNA MISS YOU: Rounding out the '80s fake - front men and they weren't even the voices on the record.
