A great Christmas record started the year at the top of the UK Charts from Boney M and was followed the all time cheesy party Classic YMCA. Now lets face it if you were compiling a list of your favourite tunes YMCA would not be in your top ten or even your top 1000 so why is it so popular at party's? There are actually two reasons and these are,

Its an upbeat tune that everyone knows,

It has a simple party dance that everyone known's.

Party's are about having fun and not about musical appreciation. If a party was about playing a sophisticated and eclectic mix of music then the average DJ would then have to spin everything from classical music to 1920s Jazz. YMCA is a common denominator that everyone from Gran and her three year old Grandchildren can do and in a party a shared experience like a joining in a party dance on mass creates a wonderful feeling of community. Family and friends being together, joining in and enjoying themselves. High fives and hugs are what a party DJ aims for, having said that we hardly ever play it.

Ring my bell and and the better known I will survive are 70s Disco classics and Gary Newman with the Tubeway Army had an early electro pop number one with Cars. Bright Eyes was from the animated film Watership Down which was about urban spread destroying the countryside and the homes of wildlife. The bright eyes reference was to Myxomatosis.

It was a great year for Blondie and the Police who both had two number ones and the year ended with every school kids favorite another brick in the wall. "Hey teacher! leave them kids alone" was a fantastic way to end the decade.
