I love 80s music, if you go to Itunes they have great radio stations for it. In a party 80s song always makes a big hit. Cheers :)

Okay...I see what you did here.  You picked 8 #1 songs from that year and instead of using Men At Work or Hall & Oates you added the 2nd John Cougar Jam which was not a #1.

HOWEVER:  Physical went to #1 in NOVEMBER of 1981!   Meaning it was released at least 2 months earlier than that!   You are a queen of nostalgia and I love ya but You have to move Olivia to 1981 where she belongs!   The fact that it stayed at #1 for 10 freakin' weeks and therefore was #1 in '82 for 3 weeks BUT yeah...ya still gotta fix that.   ( 7 WEEKS - 1981 ) ( 3 WEEKS - 1982 )  

I did some research for you.  Since you only used BIG MASSIVE hits I stayed with the TOP 5 ONLY and considering your ROCK tastes and sensibilities I have decreed that the BEST SONG FOR YOU IS>......

Harden My Heart - Quarterflash or

Heat of the Moment - Asia or

Rosanna by Toto or

LEAVE IT ALONE AND TELL ME TO PISS OFF!  :p
