    Ghostbusters. That song is awesome! I have the Billboard top 20 songs from 1984 on CD, and that tune in on it. I'll have to dig it out and give it a spin now.

    Looking back at these lists goes to prove that the 80's were a GREAT time for music. That list took me right back...WOW.

    My advice is to go for the alien abduction story. Look bemused, dishevelled and on the verge of tears as you recount your story of intrusive and degrading medical tests.
    Worked for me anyway. I still have colleagues asking me what it is like to fuck a green womanoid with seventeen breasts.
    Alternatively just walk in and inform everyone that alcoholism is indeed a disease and that they should be less judgemental and perhaps a little more supportive."

    You ain't kidding. Those were the days! Even the shitty songs on these 80's lists are better than the "hits" of today.

    They don't make music like that anymore.
