#1 Songs in ’83, ’77 & ’65

Posted in music by adeli on April 18, 2008

On this day in 1983, the Number 1 song was Come on Eileen by Dexys Midnight Runners.

The disco hit Don’t Leave Me This Way by Thelma Houston was Number 1 on April 18, 1977.

And in 1965, Game of Love by Wayne Fontana & the Mindbenders had the top place on the music chart. This song became a favorite of mine when it was featured on the Good Morning Vietnam soundtrack. And you’re hearing it on the jukebox now!
