'I'll be your knight in shining armor...'



Whatever your opinion of '80s music is, you can't deny that the year 1980 was filled with hit songs that were still soaked in the late '70s cheese dip of bad music.

And so it was with great expectations that Stuck in the 80s co-host Sean Daly and I tackled our newest podcast topic: The horrible hits of 1980.

Each song reached the Top 100 chart during the year (though some were released in 1979), and each song brings nothing by pain and anguish to our ears when we hear them today. Particularly, that Rolling Stones' disaster, "Emotional Rescue." (Mick! What were you thinking?) And don't even get me started on how bad the video is.
