#HitsByYears – 1982

Last but not least, there are three more musicians who were not only big in the 80s but already in the 70s. I am not telling too much since you know all of them very well. As I said, I was trying to find songs that were popular but have become forgotten treasures. I confess that this is not the case with the last song but… that one had to be! 😉

#HitsByYears – 1982

The first song today is from a band I only remember because of that one song. I had completely forgotten about it. Thanks to my not going with the still popular 80s songs, I found it. The second one is another classic which I have not heard in ages. Do you remember both songs?

#HitsByYears – 1982

Gosh, it is already Friday, and there are still so many more songs worth being shared. However, we still have two more days for some 80s vibes. First today, I am sharing another one of my all-time favorites songs. The second one is a song by one of my favorite 80s bands. Happy Friday, everyone!

What about working out frequently, guys 🤨 Maybe some of you are getting motivated with the next song. No worries, you can relax again with song number two! Have a great day!

#HitsByYears – 1982

You know Amadeus of Falco. He recorded a version for the US in 1985 and reached number one on the charts with that version (as the first Austrian musician). But Falco’s first big hit was in 1982, and the last time I was in the States (which is quite a while ago), I heard an English version of that song. I thought, why not sharing the original today. The lyrics are German but also in Viennese dialect.

#HitsByYears – 1982

In this song series, I am trying not to share the hits that are still played on the radio stations. I rather dig out the forgotten ones which many of you will remember and loved listening to. Today, we are going with two songs which are from two of the greatest musicians in my opinion which I haven’t heard in ages.

#HitsByYears – 1982

Again, time for writing is rare and I decided to treat me you guys to another week filled with music from a great era. Once I found myself in the middle of an ocean of amazing songs, I thought it would have been less effort to write my regular posts… lol… but what can we do? It’s the 80s, and the choice of songs only grows with each year. So I decided to share two songs in every post. I am positive that nobody minds it 😉

#HitsByYears – 1981

For the last day of the 1981 week I am sharing two songs. The first one is a song that goes well along with the inspiration I try to share on my blog. Don’t let anyone or anything stop you from pursuing your dreams, certainly not yourself. There may be interruptions and constructions along the way. But as long as your dream burns in you, it wants to be lived. Maybe you need to adjust the sails or check your GPS as long as you hold them tight.
Happy Mother’s Day to everyone who celebrates it!

#HitsByYears – 1981

The following song might be a special treat for my UK friends today because it won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1981. It is also a great song to start the weekend. Enjoy the day and have a great Saturday.

#HitsByYears – 1981

Wow, already Friday. There are still so many hits left. I think it won’t hurt to let 1981 run the week until Sunday. What do you think? But for now, get some extra 80s power from a young blond power woman.

#HitsByYears – 1981

It is Thursday, and I will make it a #ThrowbackThursday this week – at least for me. A few weeks ago, I told you about my teenage crush in the early 80s. There are so many hits of his during those years that I couldn’t resist sharing two songs. I am sure you won’t mind it.

#HitsByYears – 1981

Today’s song takes me back to the summer of 1981. Like every year, we spent most of the summer break in Vienna. I remember this song playing whenever we turned on the radio in the morning. So, this song is always lifiting me up since it reminds me of fun, summer, sun, and unburdened joy.

It is Tuesday, and I am following the romantic path today. You all know Enrique Iglesias. Do you remember his father? Here we go with one of Julio Iglesias’ hits that brought hearts to an instant melting.

#HitsByYears – 1981

It is quite a while ago since I went for the last #HitsByYears week. A lot is going on on all ends lately, and I don’t have much time for posting. So, let’s continue with 1981.

#HitsByYears – 1980

There would be so many more great hits to share, but that is a bit of the thrill that keeps the suspense higher. So, I will conclude this week with only two songs. One is what we call a one-hit-wonder with lots of cover versions, and the other one is coming from one of the greatest musicians of this time. I hope you liked my choice. Have a great Friday!

#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!

#HitsByYears – 1980

It is already halftime of this #HitsByYears week and therefore I start posting more than only one song.

#HitsByYears – 1980

Although I do remember some songs very well doesn’t mean I knew the title. The same happened with the song I am sharing today. I could not recognize the title, but once I heard the song… beautiful! It was confusing because some sources said it was released in 1980 and some in 1979. However, I thought it won’t hurt to listen to this gem. Happy Romantic Tuesday, everybody!

#HitsByYears – 1980

The past months and weeks were tough but at least I passed the exam last Saturday. This means that I don’t have to use every free minute for learning anymore. Therefore, my regular posts will be back from next week on. For this week, we are going with another song week.

#HitsByYears – 1979

Last but not least, here are two of my favorite songs of all times. I don’t think I need to explain a lot. Enjoy!

I hope you liked the choices I made for that year. Have a great Friday and a happy weekend!

The song I am sharing today comes from a lady who doesn’t need to explain her haircolor… hehe.

#HitsByYears – 1979

The past 2 months were really tough and I am glad to be off this week. I spent the past weekend in a spa and when you are reading this I am probably on my way back home. Since I could not schedule my regular posts for this week, I wanted to enjoy some more hits of past times with you.

#HitsByYears – 1978

Last but not least, one of the greatest ever to conclude the year 1978. Indeed a fantastic music year.

I barely hear one of her songs on the radio anymore. But that doesn’t change the fact that we all know many of her songs. Most of all, due to her specific voice and music style.

Two great singers of an era mostly make a good combo… as the following song proves.

#HitsByYears – 1978

As I told you last week, it is time again for some trips back on memory lane. After a little drought (at least for me) finding some classic song from the years 76 and 77, we arrived in 1978. And here it starts again to become difficult picking only five songs of a fantastic variety. But no words anymore but only great sounds.

#HitsByYears – 1977

Some artists have been great since the first time they showed up. One of those artists is the one I want to conclude the 1977 week. Warning: The song will keep playing in your head for the rest of the day… Happy Friday!

#HitsByYears – 1977

Since this is actually the day I am posting some #MomentsOfJoy, there has to be a song that goes along with that idea. This song makes me especially joyful. I am not sure if the song was already released in 1976 since there is different information about it. But… who cares as long we enjoy 😄

#HitsByYears – 1977

Happy Romantic Tuesday! Who remembers Rita Coolidge? When I hear her name, I think of All Time High which was the soundtrack for the James Bond movie Octopussy. It was the first Bond movie I saw. That might be the reason why I liked Roger Moore playing Bond the most. But today we go with an older song of Coolidge. It is new to me but I am glad I found it. Enjoy

#HitsByYears – 1977

School was calling again last weekend. It was an even longer turn this time (Thursday through Sunday). That’s why I go for another #HitsByYears week. I wish you a good start to your new week but try to take it easy 😉

Hits By Years – 1976

Wow, it is already the last day of the 1976 – week. I want to conclude it with my favorite song of that year. I remember that it was played up and down the radio stations. Only decades later when I heard it again, I understood the funny and cute meaning of the song (remember, English is not my first language… hehe). Who remembers that song?

Hits By Years – 1976

I haven’t heard this song in ages but I remember it so well. Although I was only 6 years when it was released, I remember how I always loved it. Doesn’t it give you an uplifting push?

Hits By Years – 1976

For today, I picked a song which I am still hearing on the radio at times. I am sure you all know it.

Hits By Years – 1976

Here we go with the promised week with hits of 1976. Let’s start with one I thought was actually pretty fitting a Monday during a regular start of a work week for many who are dealing with a lot of traffic on their way to work.

Hits By Years – 1975

The last day of the 1975 hits week has come. Of course, I can impossibly close this week without sharing one of the greatest compositions in rock/pop history ever. Happy Friday and have a great weekend!

Hits By Years – 1975

Another song, which feels typical for the 70s to me, comes from Linda Ronstadt. It is not my favorite one of hers but I like it and it reminds me a lot of my childhood.

Hits By Years – 1975

The many languages here in Europe are of course also reflected in the music we hear on the radio every day. Today, English is the most commonly heard language. But the further back in time you go, the more the hits were mainly sung in the national language of the singer or the band. I believe that at least my European friends may remember the song I am sharing today.

Hits By Years- 1975

Happy #RomanticTuesday, everybody. #HitsByYears or not, it has to be a romantic song on a Tuesday. It es even better when it is one of the foot-tapping kind. Have a great day!

Hits By Years – 1975

Another course weekend has come to an end yesterday which for another Hits By Years week. We have arrived in 1975 and for the start I picked a song from a Dutch Band that was very big at that time. To me it appeared as if it was played everywhere and I remember me singing it. Who remembers this song too?

Hits By Years – 1974

The last day of the 1974 hits’ week has already arrived. Hmm, what song to choose for a really good last one? What about this one? Happy Friday everybody!

Hits By Years – 1974

In 1974 one of the most famous bands had their breakthrough due to winning the European song contest. ABBA was pretty unknown at that time. It is even more interesting to watch the original video of their performance at the song contest from 1974 since we know how far they have come.

Hits By Years – 1974

Who does remember the 70’s Kung Fu series with David Carradine as Kwai Chang Caine? The song I am sharing today was the sound track of the series in the German version. Whenever I hear it, reflexively I think of David Carradine.

Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1974

This here is one of the songs of that year which has been covered quite a few times over the years. That’s why I wasn’t even aware that the original is already from 1974. I hope you like my choice for this #RomanticTuesday.

Hits By Years – 1974

The time has come again for sharing some trips back on memory lane. Last weekend was another school weekend (Friday morning through Sunday evening) and since I had no time for scheduling posts I will share some more hits from long ago. Let’s get it started:

Hits By Years – 1973

music-2087771_960_720

Wow, another week of great songs from long-gone times is over. How could I conclude it without sharing this song which again takes my heart eastwards? Happy Friday, everybody! Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1973

music-2087771_960_720

Today’s song is again one of those which feels more like an 80s’ song to me since I got introduced to it in the mid 80s. Back then I did not pay attention to the lyrics (remember my mother tongue is German) neither did I bother what the song is about. So, doing this series really shines a new light on many songs I thought I already knew and makes them even more meaningful to me. Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1973

music-2087771_960_720

This is one of those songs I don’t have specific memories of but one of those I simply since forever (which is obvious since I was three years old when it was published). Hearing this song takes me back looking through the eyes of a person which I am not anymore and still feels familiar. Like a dress I wore long ago and put it back on again. I don’t know how to explain it better but I think you know what I mean. Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1973

music-2087771_960_720

Yes, I know, there is a popular cover version of the song below. But that one never did it to me. Of course, I have always reflexively compared it with the original and to me the cover version has not half of its depth. But however, there would be no cover version without this beautiful song. So enjoy! Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1973

New day and a new week of Hits by Years. We continue with 1973 and I am starting with a real earworm. So get up … no matter what the title says! Read more ›

Hits by Years – 1972

music-2087771_960_720

For the last song of this special hits week, I go with one of my favorite songs ever. A song that always makes my eyes watery listening to it but watching this video touches my heart even more. A song that has to be part of this collection of greatest song of 1972. Happy Friday! Read more ›

Hits by Years – 1972

music-2087771_960_720

This 1972 week is almost coming to an end although there are so many more great songs which would be worth sharing. It is always a task to select only 5 songs. But I am sure you agree with me that this song must not be missing. Read more ›

Hits by Years – 1972

music-2087771_960_720

The song I am sharing today I know from my teenager years although it was released when I was only 2 years old. I think the excitement for heavy mental was not so big for my parents … lol. I love this song since although it is a 70s’s song it reminds me of the 80s and being at the discotheque with my class mates. Read more ›

Hits by Years – 1972

music-2087771_960_720

Hi, everybody and welcome in the new week. As you may have figured, this week (and probably the next one too) I will share songs of long-gone days instead of my usual posts. There is too much going on on the weekends (I spare you the details – remember rule #6.😉) and I cannot manage to write or schedule those posts. So be curious and enjoy the journey back in time.

Hits By Years – 1971

music-2087771_960_720

Of course, the last song of 1971 I am sharing here has to be a real classic song. I am sure that no one will be disappointed with my choice. And in addition to it, it makes a wonderful thought to go with for the weekend. Be a dreamer and keep imagining as long as the world does live as one. Read more ›

Hits By Years – 1971
