Journey's Don't Stop Believin' was released in 1981.
The song is arguably the most-well known of the entire rock
era. It only reached # 9 on the Billboard charts, making it
the #65 biggest pop song of the year. The 120 BPM song breaks
several 'pop music rules.' The chorus is only said 3 times,
and not until only 45 seconds are left in the song.
The reference to being born and raised in "South Detroit'
would actually refer to the Canadian city of Windsor, according
to our map.
1981's Just The Two Of Us was covered by Will Smith in 1998.
Although the song was on Grover Washington Jr's album Winelight,
it may best be known as the work of vocalist Bill Withers.
Milli Vanilli had several chart hits, reaching number 1 three
times with Baby Don't Forget My Number, Blame It On
The Rain and Girl I'm Gonna Miss You. They cracked
the top 5 with Girl You Know It's True and All Or Nothing.
They won the Best Grammy Award, which was taken away when it was
discovered that the dou of Rob Pilatus and Fabrice Morvan were
just the face of what were actually studio musicians and singers.
1987's Dirty Dancing soundtrack brought us I've had The
Time Of My Life, which was brough back again in late 2011
by the Black Eyed Peas. It also featured Love Is Strange
by Mickey & Sylvia, sampled strongly in in 2012 with Pitbull's
Back In Time.
Aerosmith's 1977 hit, Walk This Way, was reworked in
1986, by Run -D.M.C., reviving Aerosmith's career and making it
the first Rap/Hip Hop song to crack the Billboard Top Hot 100
