Welcome to another #HitsByYears week. Two years ago, we started with my birth year, 1970, and, meanwhile, we arrived at one of my favorite music years within my favorite music decade. This time the choice was the hardest for me. I reduced my already limited list to 25 songs which was already difficult. And from that, I whittled down the list again to a maximum of three songs per day. So, unfortunately, you won’t find “Take on Me”, “Rhythm of the Night”, “Burning Heart”, “The Power of Love”, or other great hits of that year. But I hope you like the ones I am going to share over the coming days.
Running up that Hill – Kate Bush
A View to a Kill – Duran Duran
This is not America – David Bowie & Pat Metheny Group
I hope you like my choices. I know there are so many more famous and great songs that are worth being shared. However, please feel free and share your personal favorite song of 1985 in the comments. Since all of the songs you find here have already been scheduled in advance, you may still find your favorite in a later post anyway.
In Love and Light
