Before I started this blog, I posted about songs from old AT40s on Facebook, January-July 2017. I’ll be moving them here over time. This entry has been edited somewhat from the original.
To mark the first anniversary of this feature, here’s the post that got the ball rolling. Many of my early efforts were pretty brief and focused mainly on the artists.
Debuting at #38 is the third AT40 entry from the Motels. Today they’re thought of as a two-hit wonder, and I suppose that’s not entirely unfair. In addition to the big two and this one, they had one other top 40 song, “Shame,” in summer 85. This got to #36, but IMO deserved a better fate. Check out the very overt David Bowie reference at around the 2:25 mark!
