American Top 40 PastBlast, 3/1/80: Toto, “99”

I’ve never seen THX 1138, George Lucas’s first film, but Casey tells us this week that it was the inspiration for this song (and video). I’d much rather it have been about Barbara Feldon’s character in Get Smart!

This is one of my favorites from Toto, right up there with “Rosanna” and maybe “Africa.” It’s at #27 this week, one slot short of its peak. I’m expecting 1980 to be featured again in early April, and if that happens we’ll see this song crop up again in a prominent spot on a Harris Top 50 chart (3/29 was the first one).
