Billboard Number One Hits 1980-1989 | Like Totally 80s

A Flash Back to the 80’s

You can get the feel of a decade from the songs that played on the radio at the time. And, no songs were played more than the #1 hits.

These songs were the background music to your life in the 80s – the music in the car on the way to school and sports practice, the music in the stores where you shopped, the music on the soundtracks of your favorite movies, and the music you danced alone to in your bedroom.

By looking at the number one hits in consecutive order throughout the 80s, you get an immediate sense of how music and culture evolved over those 10 years.
We link to music videos where they available. Enjoy!
