Radio Daze: Pop Hits Of The '80s, Vol. 14

The tenth in a series of eleven posts is now available over at Herc's Hideaway.  This latest imagined volume of the Radio Daze series covers the months November 1984 - May 1985, a.k.a. my freshman year at college.  I was an average student at an average state university, but I thought I was the shit [insert eyeroll here].  Even though I was studying "serious" music in college, that didn't keep me from keeping up with my beloved soft rock.  I would have included personal favorite Everything She Wants by Wham (released April 1985, Pop #1, AC #4, R&B #12, Dance #3), but no matter. Here are the 12 tracks Herc has selected for Volume 14:

Title Artist
We Belong Pat Benatar
Taxi Dancing Rick Springfield & Randy Crawford
Foolish Heart Steve Perry
Nightshift Commodores
California Girls David Lee Roth
You Send Me The Manhattans
Emotion Barbra Streisand
Why Can't I Have You The Cars
Fresh Kool & The Gang
One Lonely Night REO Speedwagon
Through the Fire Chaka Khan
You Give Good Love Whitney Houston
