#HitsByYears – 1980

Today, I want to go with a song that I got introduced to by an 80s series with the same title. I loved the series. I remember the episodes were on tv every Monday evening… and I was always ready to watch. I loved it!

That was when a dream came up to study music at the Julliard School of Music in New York. That plan was up for many years. I took it seriously and started to prepare myself and collected legal information about studying in the States. Private incidents changed my plan. However, in 1985 (I was 15), I was there in person and informed myself about the pre-conditions to get there. It was already unforgettable to only stand in that building and seeing the students running around to their different classes. Have I ever regretted that I rejected my plan? No! Never! Of course, I don’t know how it would have been, but I know what I would have missed otherwise.

Fame – Irene Cara

But today, I want to go with one more song of the year 1980. Let’s listen to Blondie again:

Call Me – Blondie

Feel free to add or mention in the comments your favorite song of 1980 and the memory that connects you with it.

Erika, Irene Cara burst out with two mega movie song hits, this being the first. “What a feeling” from Flashdance was the other. Blondie is iconic and this is representative of her work. Keith

Yes, Irene Cara came up with some songs but those two are the ones I remember and which are still played. Blondie is a legend. I loved “Heart of Glass” but I think I like “Call Me” even more. Probably because it was coloser to my own musical awakening… lol


As a person who grew up 10 minutes outside NYC, studying all forms of dance, I wanted to be on Fame! My friends and I thought it was the greatest show. The Blondie song was one we used in a competition around that time as well. My many memories of dancing are a highlight in my heart and soul. Thank you for the lovely walk down memory lane with both of these songs ErikaπŸ’ƒβ€πŸŒ πŸŽ†πŸ˜ŠπŸ™
