    Nominate 20 chart songs from 1980

    [​IMG]

    To make this easy for everyone, we are looking at songs that made the chart in 1980, so if it was a hit in December 1979 and then continued in the charts in January 1980 it’s eligible.

    1980.jpg

    Also note that some songs are chart hits in different years depending on the country.

    To avoid duplicates where a song crosses over two years, I will eliminate it in future rounds. No one wants the same song winning twice.



    Back to the year and this time we are revisiting 1980

    One member chose this year, but who…?



    Speculate who you think might have chosen 1980 in this thread, but keep you choice until we make our votes.

    Posting a link for each nomination would be ideal, that way others can watch/listen and decide whether they want to include that song in their final ten.

    If possible (not compulsory) try to avoid posting the videos as this slows down the thread.

    Staying with the same format. Once the nominations are complete, I will post the final list and everyone can then check out all the nominated songs and vote for their favourite ten from other member's lists.


    To clarify for any newcomers: The idea is, we all nominate songs we like (based on the title/theme of the thread). We then check out each other's nominations and pick a favourite ten from their lists.


    20 songs is the maximum, but if you don't have 20 anything less is fine.

    Everyone is welcome to join in and nominate 20 songs


    Last day for nominations is Sunday 6th November

    I had not expected the British charts to be so different from ours. It seems that indie rock and new wave was already very popular over there.

    :D Don't blame me. The fickle Gods of Fate decided to go with another year from the same decade. I'm just their conduit.


    But rest assured, we'll be leaving the 80's shortly . . .

    Vienna the single was released until 1981, it is often referred to as the song which was held from the top spot by a novelty record from Joe Dolce and yet Vienna sold more records that Dolce that year, coming in as the fifth bestselling song.

    Vienna the album was realised in 1980.

    But if this was a hit in another country a year before its release then my post is irrelevant. :)

    I just go with when the song could first be heard by the public. Either by the single release, EP release or album release. Cause many songs (especially pre-1990s) that were hits in Sweden one year were hits in the release country the year before. I went to the Swedish charts and most songs there were released in 1979.
    So I decided to make my rule that the original (and first) release should be either the single or the album - whichever came first - is the year I'll count.

    Is that ok? :think: :confused:

    But we have guidelines to make it equal for everyone. If you set yourself a rule, what's to stop the next member setting up their own personal rule?

    And not by the title of the thread ?

    Nominate 20 chart songs from 1980

    That's absolutely fine.

    I'm going by what I know with the song "Vienna" and when it was in the charts. If this song was in the charts in Sweden any time in the year 1980 then it's fine to nominate it in this round.


    Just looking at the stats for Vienna and it entered the Swedish charts 24/04/81 and its last entry was 03/07/81, so that means it can't be used here.

    I had to look it up and it appears to be a musical song. Do you watch many musicals?
