These are the songs a kid liked from the randomness the AM radio played in the late 70s and early 80s.

1977
"Telephone Line" - Electric Light Orchestra

1978
"Two out of Three Ain't Bad" - Meat Loaf

1979
"We Are Family" - Sister Sledge. The Pirates Win Ther World Series. I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP.

1980
"Call Me" - Blondie

1981
"Private Eyes" - Hall & Oates - One of my first "real" records. You know, those big black vinyl thingies the kids like to put their indie hipster rock on now?

1982
"Who Can It Be Now" - Men at Work. (Along with Hall & Oates, my favorite groups of my early adolescence, 1981-83.)

1983
"Legs" - ZZ Top. The video did....things....to a 13-year-old boy.

More to come....I discover communist college radio and the dissolution of what would be called Generation X!
