The ‘80s were a hit-and-miss decade. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Pac-Man, MTV, “Miami Vice,” “Cheers,” “The Cosby Show,” the CD, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame were hits. The New Coke, the return of Haley’s Comet, and the DeLorean were misses. On the music charts, the hits and misses were just as obvious. Eighteen of the hits–all songs that peaked at #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, 11 of them gold or platinum–are heard on Pure ‘80s: #1s.
