In Honor Of Rick’s 30 Year Highschool Reunion – The Top 5 Songs From 1984 [VIDEO]

Bangor HS Yearbook - 1984
Bangor HS Yearbook – 1984

I was looking over my Facebook page the other night and found out that my graduating class of 1984 (Bangor High School) is beginning the planning stages of our – GASP – 30th High School Reunion.

Even though it’s been almost 30 years since I’ve seen most of my classmates, I do keep up with a lot of them on Facebook and we post on each others ‘walls’ from time to time.

It’s hard to believe that it will be 30 years in 2014 and even harder to believe that next year will mark my 33rd year in Radio. (Wow! Where have the years gone).

I’ve never had a chance to get back to Bangor, Maine during any of the ‘milestone’ reunions. I was in Cali during the 10th, the 20th found me in New Mexico and on the 30th I will still be here in Texas (God willing).

So, if you will indulge me for a few minutes, here are some of the biggest hits from ‘back in my day.’





Phil Collins – Against All Odds (Take A Look At Me Now)



Phil was just begging his domination on radio as not only the lead vocalist of Genesis, but also with a budding solo career. This song, from the Movie starring Jeff Bridges and Rachael Ward was actually a re-worked song that didn’t make it on Collins’ debut solo album, ‘Face Value.’



Kenny Loggins – Footloose



Kenny was no stranger to making music for movies. Before this song he had a hit with ‘I’m Alright’ (Theme from Caddyshack) and would go on to do ‘Danger Zone’ for the flick ‘Top Gun.’

Van Halen – Jump



This would end up being the most commercial song from the David Lee Roth era. It was also the first time that VH used a keyboard in one of their songs.



Culture Club – Karma Chameleon



By 1984 MTV was on top of their game breaking new artists and videos from; Duran Duran, Madonna, Prince, Hall & Oates and this English Band fronted by ‘Boy’ George O’Dowd.



Yes – Owner Of A Lonely Heart



Yes was best known for their progressive rock sound and have very long songs. Some would call them ‘epics.’ But this would be the first time the group had a radio hit under 5:00 minutes in length.
