10 Great 70’s & 80’s Songs That Only Got To #2
So this weekend on Q105, we’re featuring nothing but #1 songs from the 1970’s and 1980’s. The only downside of that… there were some really great songs that just didn’t quite make it.
It’s amazing to see the songs that didn’t hit #1. For example, do you know Bob Seger’s only #1 song? It’s not “Old Time Rock n’ Roll.” It’s not “Turn The Page” or any other of his classics you’d hear at his concerts. In fact, I’ve seen Bob twice and he’s never performed his only #1: “Shakedown” from the Beverly Hills Cop II soundtrack. (And to be honest, I’m glad he doesn’t!)
Here are ten great songs that just missed the top spot on the Billboard charts:
Journey: Open Arms
Bruce Springsteen: Dancing In The Dark
Nena: 99 Luft Balloons
Queen: We Are The Champions
Eddie Grant: Electric Avenue
10cc: I’m Not In Love
Gerry Rafferty: Baker Street
Foreigner: Waiting For A Girl Like You
Prince: Purple Rain
(Sorry, Prince doesn’t put his music online, so here’s a cover!)
