    Phil Collins dominated that year it looks like. This too was the year I was born, but I'm not sure what was on top at the time.

    funny how Wham is first and third on this list and i've never heard anything from them nor would I care to.

    A continuation of 1984, really - culminating in Live-Aid. But where's U2 "Pride (In The Name Of Love)" on either of those lists?
    1985 also seemed to be a big year for movie songs!
