Top 40

There were tons of groups in the 1980's that manage to land a top 40 Billboard chart hit, and although we don't include them all here, we include a bunch, from A-ha to Will to Power. These are the songs that head bangers refused to acknowledge back in the 1980's, but let's be honest, these days "80's on 8" is a preset channel on your XM radio. The first step to recovery is to admit those 80's Top 40 songs were actually pretty good (most of them).
