On this day in 1980, shoulderpads were in, the hair was big and aerobics exercises were the hottest way to lose weight.

Maybe you remember sweating it out to these top songs, or blasting them in your big brother's Ford Durango.

No matter where you were or who you were with, you're sure to remember a couple of these classics that kicked of an righteous decade.

Diana Ross, Upside Down

Also number one on the Billboard Disco and Soul Charts, Upside Down stayed in the number one spot for a full four weeks!


All Out Of Love, Air Supply


Another One Bites The Dust, Queen

Everybody sang this song, everyone still sings this song. It's pretty much the ultimate stick-it-to-her (or him) rock anthem.


Fame, Irene Cara


Fame won the Golden Globe Award and the Academy Award for Best Original Song that year.

Lookin' For Love, Johnny Lee

Although more than 20 artists rejected the song, Johnny Lee took a chance with it. Good thing he did too, It was the featured song of Urban Cowboy, co-starring John Travolta. It was certified gold for sales of 1 million units by the Recording Industry Association of America.


Give Me The Night, George Benson


Give me the night was George Benson's first single to hit number one on the US Billboard Soul Singles chart and one of the last majorly successful disco singles of the era.

Late In The Evening, Paul Simon

Drivin' My Life Away, Eddie Rabbitt


Featured on his platinum album, Horizon, this song was one of the biggest crossover hits of his career.

One In A Million You, Larry Graham


Former bass player for Sly & the Family Stone, Graham's single peaked in the month before and remained number one for two weeks, the record went Gold.

Emotional Rescue, The Rolling Stones

Who would have guessed that these guys would still be rollin' well into their 70's?
