Billboard’s Hot 100 of 1982

Billboard’s Hot 100 of 1979

100. “Strange Way” – Firefall: Kicking off this list is an interesting, dark-sounding radio-friendly rock hit. Truthfully, I can hear Chicago’s influences on this track from a mile away, especially with that uptempo’d salsa breakdown before the final chorus. It’s an … Continue reading
