Top Songs of 1980

Our huge project to rank the best songs of the 80s continues... this week we've updated the Top Songs of 1980, and Blondie continues to lead the chart. "Call Me" was the theme of the movie "American Gigolo," which starred Richard Gere. Legend has it that Stevie Nicks was first in line to record the song, but she didn't want it. The producer was the well-known Giorgio Moroder who asked Debbie Harry of Blondie to write the lyrics and perform it. It ended up being one of the biggest hits of the year in both the U.S. and U.K. Now it barely tops our 1980 chart over heavyweights like Pink Floyd and Queen.
